Media Consumption Diet – Central Ohio

Thanks to Tina for thinking of me. I learned a new word. Tina’s meme.

I know Tina from her Green Buckeye site.

Web… I started doing email about 1991 or 1992. I saw the something on the internet in 1993.. played on Prodigy bulletin boards with friends. I don’t know when I got my first website, maybe like 1996? or 1997? maybe it was much later.

Browser – Internet Explorer usually… I try to use Firefox… but it looks different. I don’t like change, even if it is subtle.

Aggregator? Huh? Actually I read a lot of blogs on Google Reader if that counts

Wiki … no

Groups: I have done a couple of Yahoo Groups… There was one for Columbus bloggers for a few hours last fall?

Blog Platform – WordPress here. for Discover Columbus and I was playing on Active Rain, a Real Estate Network…. oooh I am doing ActiveRain again, this has been sitting here a long time.

Oh I started a blog on (thinking it was in early 2006 and a week later I started one on Blogger. I abandoned both in a couple of weeks I believe.


Skype – Never

Radio – NPR or this is very embarassing.. I listen to channel 6 TV, WSYX in the car because I like the sound of TV…

Music – Seldom listen to music. The stereo freaks out the cat. I think he likes listening to the TV with me…. but not in the car.

TV - no cable… but lots of TV… I love the sound… Today Show, The View (on the radio)…. back to TV…I am addicted to LOST, Grey’s Anatomy and Ugly Betty. I think I may have kicked the addiction to Desparate Housewives…

Books - I am not the bookworm I once was.

Podcasts – Not really… but if they could disguise it as WSYX TV I would listen to it.

Communication - Office phone, mobile phone. I have Jaxtr on one of my websites….and maybe Discover Columbus soon….

Magazines - Newsweek every once in awhile or at least a couple of pages in it.

Newspaper - Weekend Columbus Dispatch sometimes sorta… I prefer to read it online.

Local papers. I have to for work and I love The Other Paper.

I meme Elaine Reese, Toby Boyce or Sadie anyway, Lisa of The Restaurant Widow, Paul….of It’s a Paul World.. all Columbusites or Central Ohioans anyway.

Outta town? My old pal Gene Molloy in Chicago… Tribune or Sun Times? Heck I’m memeing more… Mo in Motown.. or a suburb of Detroit anyway Maureen Francis of Michigan, Bonnie Erickson in St. Paul Minnesota. And Teri Lussier in Huber Heights (the Dayton area.)

What’s your media consumption like?

I am sure there is a plugin, sprocket, widget or whirly gig I should install for tags but I haven’t.

my meme (OK it’s Tina’s meme) is traveling. Stacy M. in Bluffton SC I believe was memed by Toby or Sadie.

Just found this. I’ll have to work on it. Copy and paste?

I think Toby is the only other person who has found this.

I kicked the Desperate Housewives Habit too lol.

Thanks Bonnie! You are quick. I let mine fester for months… and Carole has done one too. Carole I could easily be reinfected by Desparate Housewives… anything with a mystery. Thanks for the comments ladies and thanks for doing the meme.

Late to the party. Again. * sigh* I’ll get to it.

8 MaureenMcCabe July 5, 2007 at 07:22 am

It took me months to get to it Teri. No rush… maybe in August when Project Blogger is a happy (?) memory? A distant memory…

Or September… or October?

I am following this “media consumption diet” thread and am trying to suggest an idea of a Commfree Day – one day every month to be spent away from media and information technology. I have a post with more explanation about it and will be glad to hear what you and others think about it:

Dima I saw your post via a comment on Carole Cohens’ ActiveRain blog and someone else’s (?) before I found your comment here…. I have to do some thinking about a Commfree Day. Thanks for the comment.
