My playlist and hobbies

It's time for Ovaleye (web hosting provider) Biz Blog 3 for 5 Challenge - and I've decided to participate to get this blog moving in a forward direction. So, twice every week, Ovaleye is sending me (and others) blog prompts - three for "Behind the Scenes" and three for "Expert Status".

I am going to see where this takes me, but I hope in the next month you will get to know me and what I am good at.

Are there things you would like to know? Today, I am going to share from the personal side.

When I am in my office, I fire up Pandora and have created a Depeche Mode playlist. Then Pandora delivers me happiness in late 80's tunes from Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, The Cure, Pet Shop Boys, Tears for Fears, etc. Every song makes me smile!

My two other favorite artists are Nicole Nordeman and Casting Crowns. They are the only two artists where I own all of their music!

As far as hobbies are concerned, I love to sing! Singing in the shower, the car, at church! If I have the opportunity - I am going to sing. I actually annoy my daughter because we will be playing Scrabble - and when I find a word in my tiles, I inevitably start singing a song with that word in it.

The other activity I love is Drum and Bugle Corps! If you aren't familiar with what that is, it's like Marching Band on steroids! Specifically, I work with the Cascades Drum and Bugle Corps from Seattle, WA. This corps has taken me on many a journey, whether that was trips to Denver, Florida or California to see them live, or taking a two week family vacation and going on tour selling souvenirs.

We now often spends weekends in Yakima with the corps and I am "fundraising chair" for this great group!

Tell me about your playlist and hobbies. I would love to know more about you as well!


  1. Way to engage in what I call a "Massive Action Campaign" for your biz and blog success Tracey! I am curious, what do you hope to achieve by the end of it?

    My playlist is mostly Gospel Music. Though I have some great oldies mixed in there too, from Queen, Billy Joel, Bruce, MJ you know, the stuff we grew up on. :)

    My hobbies I realized recently have waned, so I have added (just this weekend) Crocheting back to the fold and I love baking. I have also removed Social Media from the 'hobbies' list. :)

    Can't wait to hear more about you!

  2. My primary goal that I hope to achieve is just to really get in the habit of blogging. I always have articles and ideas running through my head, but they rarely make it here.

    It's definitely a way to differentiate myself.

    Thanks for the comment!
