Five to one, and one in five …

No meme here gets out alive.

Especially one that requires tagging five people. Geez, do I even know five bloggers who’ll do this? Sure, Corndog does, but he’s a popular musician. I’m a lame journalist.

Anyway, here goes:

Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot, like so.

1) Overread
2) BrightStar
3) dr four eyes
4) corndog
5) Mostly Modern Media

Next select five people to tag

1) Chip
2) Neel
3) Michael
4) Yeah, I really don’t know many more people who don’t stick to issues of journalism, technology or theology. The priest at my church has a great blog, and he’s an amazing classical guitarist, but I don’t think I should send this his way.
