Pay It Forward

So, I was tagged in a blogging challenge by Tara Linney. I did one of these a couple of years ago, but since I need to blog more often I figured I would try it again. Here are the rules:

The PLN Blogging Challenge:

  1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger.
  2. Share 8 random facts about yourself.
  3. Answer the 8 questions the nominating blogger has created for you.
  4. List 8 bloggers. They should be bloggers you believe deserve some recognition and a little blogging love!
  5. Post 8 questions for the bloggers you nominate to answer and let all the bloggers know they have been nominated. (You cannot nominate the blogger who nominated you.)

Acknowledge the nominating blogger: Tara, you rock!! Not for this, but for other stuff you do.

8 Random Facts About Me:

  1. When I make lists of items, they are almost always in groups of 5 so this 8 things list is bothering me a little.
  2. I have a huge fear of public speaking. One of the reasons I am so energetic when I give presentations is that is my way of hiding my shaking hands and nerves.
  3. I once had my face broken by a student. It was at a Relay for Life event. We were playing ultimate frisbee. He jumped higher than I did for the ‘bee and accidentally brought his elbow down into my face. I broke my orbital bone and sinus cavity, and took 5 stitches above the eye.
  4. I actually insulted my wife the first time we met. Glad she forgives easily.
  5. I am a huge FRIENDS fan. Whenever I clean the house, I pop in the DVD and time flies by.

Since I have done this before, I am not going to require any of my blogger friends to do this. However, I would like to share some blogs for you to check out:
