    It means "I've been talking about myself for a while, here. I don't want to be selfish or perceived as self-centered, using all our time together talking only about me. Let's talk about something else now: maybe you!" and is often offered as an opportunity for you to talk about yourself for a bit. Or some other topic altogether. – Dan Bron Aug 16 '14 at 13:52
  • it's just an often humorous way of saying "We have spoken enough about me. Let's now talk about you." – Fattie Aug 16 '14 at 13:52

It is not an idiom.

You say that when you have been digressing, telling personal details/ facts. It means what it literally says: "I have spoken enough about myself"

    It's an idiom in that it's extragrammatical and commonly used. It's a very transparent idiom. – Edwin Ashworth Aug 16 '14 at 14:52
