Today I was thinking about AOL. Remember AOL? That was pretty much my social life in junior high and high school, and then AIM carried me through college. (This was all before Facebook took over the internet.) For years of my life, one of my favorite things to do on AOL e-mail was fill out those little personal "all about you" surveys and send them to my friends and collect the ones they sent back. I PRINTED THEM OUT. I am curious if they are still stashed away somewhere in my bedroom at my parents' house... I will have to investigate sometime.
THIS TOO. This was a BIG. DEAL.
Anyway, I was trying to think of what I could do to jumpstart my blog again, and I thought I HAVE TO FIND A SURVEY.
And I did!
