I'm not doing that. It's not a stupid idea, it just doesn't appeal to me. Besides, this blog has been more or less 1000 days of parenting or 1000 days of autism or whatever, so I want to go the other route.
I want to do a reader submitted blog. I'll do 30 days (October, I'm thinking) of Random. On the one hand I feel like it's an exercise in creativity...but on the other hand it's like crowd-sourcing inspiration. I mean, all I have to do is sit here and write whatever someone tells me they want to hear.
- Nothing X/R-rated
- I'll only write a couple paragraphs
- I won't use any resources to research the topic...it'll just be whatever I think or have heard or experienced regarding the topic. (I think that'll make it funnier if I research it after the fact to see just how ignorant I was/am about a topic...maybe I'll post that as a post script on the following day's blog post (if I'm that motivated (I doubt I will be))).
- I'll solicit feedback on facebook (and here) and post the topics in a Day 0 post.
- If I get more than 30, I'll pick the ones I like best.
- One topic per person
It reminds me a lot of a game we used to play in high school to pass the time while listening to a teacher lecture us on some boring-ass topic (say...trigonometry, for example). I would have a friend draw a squiggle/doodle on a page, and I would have to turn it into a picture.
|Doodle (this one actually was kind of a hard one. |
But I'm really out of practice)
Some would turn out sort of cool. Some looked pretty ridiculous, but I enjoyed doing them, and my friends enjoyed trying to stump me.
Please don't try to stump me. Do you watch "Chopped"? Whenever they ask for the audience to vote on a basket they end up with RIDICULOUS basket ingredients. Please don't ask me to make a palatable blog post with the topical equivalent of...american cheese, sour patch kids, chicken feet, and radishes in my mystery basket....
