Kicking off 30 Days of Random - Day 0

The Rulez for my 30 Days of Random Topic Blogging were in the Bloggy Doodle Dandy post a few days, ago, but they were:
  • 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 idea per person (I added that one later and then pretended it was there all along)
My crowd sourced inspiration has provided me with the following amazing topic ideas (in no particular order)

Some people picked serious topics, autism/special needs stuff, some people picked...not as serious topics.  I'll confine the posts to something that doesn't get out of hand length-wise (since the whole point was to write more frequently, but to keep the post length down).  I can tell you that a couple of these topics I'm completely clueless about.

Lots of food related topics.  I considered doing them in groupings, but that's no fun, cause all the serious ones would be together.  Anyway...I broke my own rule and "researched" the first topic, because I decided it would be illustrated, and I didn't know how to draw a honey badger.  So in order to draw it completely life-like...I looked it up.

Apart from that, I kept myself just as ignorant on the subject matter as you've grown accustomed to over the past few years following my blog!  Please tune in tomorrow for "A Day in the Life of the Honey Badger."
