Do you remember the old Dewar's Profiles? I must have taken myself a little too seriously from an early age, because I always wanted to see myself in one. By the time I was actually old enough to drink, I realized that I hated Scotch. But that wasn't the point. I wanted to find myself gracing the pages of some upscale magazine, having attained the cultural status of a Dewar's Profile. Sometimes you have to make your own fifteen minutes of fame. So, in honor of tomorrow night's Blog Party at The Second Chance Saloon, I am instituting the HoCoBlogs Profile. Here's mine: Home: Oakland Mills, Columbia Age: 54 Profession: Teacher--Music and Movement for Preschoolers with Special Needs Hobbies: Crafting, Singing, Reading, Blogging Last Book Read: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, & Sharpen Your Creative Mind (ed. J. Glei) Last Accomplishment: Ran for CA Board from Oakland Mills (Yes, I lost, but running was definitely an accomplishment.) Quote: "Nearly everything could be improved with the addition of a bouncy castle." Profile: Caring, creative, with a taste for word-play. Willing to work on the small things while keeping an eye on the big picture. Blog: Village Green/ Town Squared I would love to see a bunch of these! Get creative, have some fun. Submit yours below, or give me one at the Blog Party. I'll post them all here on the blog. If you are a blog reader, that's fine, too. Use the last line to list your favorite blogs, or favorite blog categories. And if anyone knows how to superimpose type over a photo, that would indeed be nifty. See you at The Second Chance!
P.S. Thanks to my friend Peter who made this:
I still think this is a great idea. Obviously mine has changed somewhat since then. I guess I'll need to tweak it.
But some things stay the same: there's a blog party coming up and I hope to catch up with my blogger and reader friends at Bare Bones Grill on Monday evening, August 21st. And I'm still interested in seeing your profile, if you want to make one. Maybe it could read "HoCo Profile" across the top.
