What Do you Think of the Doing Away With the Food Pyramid?

This is the ninth blog in my “It Came From Tumblr” series.   Most of the blogs in this series came from “Asks” that I got on Tumblr after I specifically requested that people send me an “Ask” with a question.  I made it clear I was going to be writing blogs based on those “Asks”.  A few blogs in the series came from responses to a question that I created.

Question: What do you think of the doing away with the food pyramid?  In recent years they are using the plate.  What do you think of the government and nutrition?  Is nutrition tied back to healthcare?

This “Ask” came to me from an anonymous person ...

I Can Haz Job?

This is the seventh blog in my “It Came From Tumblr” series.  All of the topics in this series came from “Asks” that I got on Tumblr.  So far, most of them consisted of questions that someone wanted me to answer.  The others were responses to questions that I posted on Tumblr and asked people to respond to.

Can we go to Starbucks?

This is the sixth blog in my “It Came from Tumblr” series.  Many of the topics in the series came from “Asks” that people sent me on Tumblr.  I’ve posted at least twice about wanting “Asks” that I could make into blog posts.  A couple of topics include “Asks” that were in response to a question I created and let people respond to.  It is a little blogging experiment I’m trying in February 2014.

Question: Can we go to Starbucks?

This question came in an “Ask” from my husband, Shawn...

Would you Approve of a Law that Gave your Boss Every Detail of your Health Care?

This is the fifth blog in my “It Came From Tumblr” series. For this one, instead of waiting for someone to send me an “Ask” with a question on it, I created a question myself. Next, I posted it on Tumblr, and waited for people to send me an answer. I promised everyone that I would keep their responses completely anonymous. Here’s what I asked about:

Let’s say that the government made a law that required your doctor to send every tiny little detail about your health care to your boss. (For the purpose of this exercise, let’s ignore all arguments about whether or not that could happen).

The new (hypothetical) law would require your doctor to give your boss information about why you wanted a doctor’s appointment, and what the doctor found when examining you. The doctor also has to tell your boss what treatment he or she prescribed, including any and all medications.

Question: Do you approve or disapprove of this (hypothetical) law?

I also asked people to indicate what political ...

Can too much Technology and Media Corrupt a Person?

This is the fourth blog in my “It Came From Tumblr” series.  All of the topics in this series came from “Asks” that I got on Tumblr.  The first four were responses to a post that I made on Tumblr in which I specifically requested that people send me an “Ask” with a topic that they wanted me to write a blog about.   This one came from a friend of mine.

Topic: You are not one for social media or heavy on media.  How much does it influence your life choices compared to a person who is surrounded by media?  I see kids going to school and using iPads and more technology than when I was a kid.  We had imagination and freedom.  Do you think too much technology and media can corrupt a person?

There are some very good questions ...

This blog is part of my “It Came From Tumblr” series. The topics for this series came from “Asks” that I got on Tumblr. The first four were responses to a Tumblr post I made that specifically asked people to send me something to blog about in February.

The second “Ask” came from my husband Shawn, who has given me permission to identify him in this post and to include a screenshot of his “Ask”.

Where would you most like to Visit on your Planet?

This month, I am doing an experiment called: “It Came From Tumblr”.  In January, I wrote a series of blogs for the 30 Day Chronic Illness Challenge.   What should I write about in February?  Instead of coming up with a topic on my own, I put a post on Tumblr in which I requested that people send me an “Ask” with a question they wanted me to blog about.

When you turn on the “Ask” function, for the very first time, you will receive an “Ask” from tumblrbot.  I feel confident that tumblrbot would not mind if I shared the “Ask”.
