Well, I have been tagged. The practise among bloggers of “tagging” consists of writing a meme blog with a list; in this case, of 7 little known facts about a blog author, then tagging 7 other authors to do the same thing. The rules are: Link your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post; Share seven facts about yourself in the post; Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs; Let them know they’ve been tagged.

Kellye Crane tagged me in her blog Solo PR Pro. Being relatively new to the blogosphere, I have been watching, reading and learning about my fellow bloggers as this game of tag progressed…little did I know it would hit here!

So, as Mack Collier said upon being tagged, I’ll play along.

  1. I can read any language written in the Cyrillic alphabet thanks to studying Russian at University. Of course, comprehension is another story.
  2. I bought my first car, a standard Cabriolet, before both getting my license and learning to drive a stick. All subsequent cars have been standard.
  3. While I have held various levels of marketing positions for the last 18 years, that was never my plan. I wanted to be an artist, then a translator.
  4. My passion for my current career in Business Consulting, dealing with Culture, Change, Innovation and Learning, was ignited by going through a facilitated Change Management process with the real estate development company for which I was working.
  5. I can figure out how to use or set up any electronic device – I am called on to do this for any electronic item that enters my professional spaces and my home, or that of our family or friends.
  6. My favourite place to play as a child was a cemetery located a half block away from my childhood Waterdown home. I liked to play in it day or night, but specifically night, because it made for a great game of hide and seek. It was my favourite place until at the age of about 5 and a half, I found a vial of what I was certain was “dead peoples pee”…I know now it was one of those little vials of water with rubber caps put on flower stems to keep them alive.
  7. Cemeteries are still a favourite haunt (pun intended) and in addition to having toured many of the local ones, I search out historical ones in every city I visit.

Well now, that was not as hard as I thought it would be. Although that is likely the last meme I can do, given that I think I have now listed all of my little known facts, many of those not so little known to those who know me closely.

The last requirement: to name 7 other bloggers and let them know, here goes:
