25 Things about Me -- Writer's Poke #177

As I'm writing this, a virus is spreading across Facebook. It's called "25 Things about Me." The idea is to brainstorm a list of 25 things about yourself, and then post it for your friends to read. When you post it, you "tag" 25 of your friends, asking them to post 25 things about themselves. And so on.

And most people, if they're bored and have nothing better to do, are pretty considerate about complying with the request. If you care about the people doing the posting, then the lists can be somewhat revealing, and at least mildly interesting.

If nothing else, the lists show you which of your friends are creative, and which ones are willing to reveal real secrets.

What 25 things did I post about myself? To find out, you'll just have to join my friends list.

Try this activity yourself. Brainstorm a list of 25 things about yourself. Did any of the items surprise you? Are there any items on this list that you wouldn't want people to know?
