Blogging, before, was very personal and it’s about putting one’s self out there. These days, it seems that more blogs are about brands and contain applicable or practical information. Don’t get me wrong, these blogs are great for obtaining useful tricks on lifestyle & parenting, and tips on the products & services that ordinary people like me would actually use. But unless a blogger attains celebrity status, or a celebrity decided to blog, the really personal blogs are being disregarded, sometimes. That’s where memes come in, to let the readers know more about the person behind the words. It is also so that bloggers would have the chance to write about a topic they know inside and out: themselves.

If you want to do this #OSBlog meme, consider yourself tagged, although the linky to the host’s, Elaine of www.misselaineouslife.com closed already. 🙂 I did this quite late since last week was a flurry of activities for me, plus my site’s server was down, so I wasn’t able to blog much. Sorry about that. If you did this already, please share your URL in the comments. I would love to know more about you!
