25 Random Things About Me

I can’t believe I forgot to post this! I had my first reader suggestion sent to me earlier this month. One very kind visitor to this blog wrote to me and suggested a journal-writing technique that I now gladly share with all the other very kind visitors to this blog. There is a bit of back story though. . .

Do you remember the 25 Random Things Facebook phenomena of a few weeks ago? Maybe this will jog your memory if you don’t. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s explained below.

Anyway, that’s what this technique is based on. And here it is:

So there is this “chain letter” type of thing going around on facebook right now. People are writing notes entitled “25 Random Things About Me” where they list 25 statements about themselves and then have to tag 25 of their friends to do that same. It’s actually a lot of fun. I have found out a lot of interesting stuff about my friends that I never knew. So I wrote one of these notes too, but first I wrote it down in my notebook. It was actually a kind of enlightening exercise for myself. Not everything I wrote in the notebook ended up on facebook. It kind of revealed to me what I thought was most interesting about myself, and what I was comfortable sharing with others.

Sounds simple and effective. Thank you wonderful reader for sharing!
