Blog Tag – 5 Things you did not know about me

By Daniel Scocco

Blogs are not books, despite the fact that some turn into them. The interesting thing about writing a blog as opposed to a book is that you get the chance to talk about personal things once in a while without disturbing the reader.

Blog Tag is a simple game: once you are tagged you write a post with 5 things that most people do not know about you and then you tag other people. Recently I have been tagged by Ellen Moore so here are the 5 things you may not know about me:

  1. I am fluent in English, Portuguese, Italian, Spanish and I speak a little bit of French…. oui mon amour!
  2. When I am not blogging or working on other projects I like to spend my time weight lifting and practicing kick boxing
  3. I am a great fan of chess, although I am not a great player
  4. I spent one year working for a multinational company before realizing that I was not suitable for the (rigid) corporate world
  5. I am Brazilian but the last 6 years I missed Carnival because I was out of Brazil. In 2007 things will be different, hit me in Rio de Janeiro if you will!!

I am tagging Bes, Ajay, Yehuda, Tim and George

    Just noticed that I got tagged — thanks, Daniel. I’ve spread the tag further: http://timjoh.com/blog-tagging/

    Nice work on learning four languages fluently, by the way.

    I love these meme’s. Oh, I taught my son to play chess back when I homeschooled him. I learned by reading it from a book, I can now no longer play against him… he beats me every time. 🙁

  • Bes

    Nice to know those points. 🙂 I haven’t been on Yahoo chess for a while now.

    Thanks for the tag; it took me a while before I could pinpoint somethings that weren’t mentioned before, and of course, the things that I wanted to share. All done, as you know by now. 🙂

    George, just start a new question or just update the post you did answering the first tag, mentioning that you got tagged twice.

  • George

    I am just going to start a new question, since I have already answered this one.

    Thanks for the tag.

  • George

    Now, I have been tagged twice, what to do?

  • Ellen

    Great list Daniel. My Dad and I are going to start playing chess together this coming year. He even bought me Chess for Dummies! Wish me luck.
