Hello folks. I’m turning the editorial direction of this place over to you. For a bit. You, the reader, can post any idea for a post, blog post title, or other sort of inspiration for a post such as a video or a song and I will endeavour to write at least 500 words on said subject/title/point of inspiration. I will also, where appropriate, choose a relevant Creative Commons image and/or YouTube video to accompany the post. What an offer, eh?
While I’m not completely out of ideas I think it is fun to turn this place over to my very kind and patient readership once in a while. I tried this a while back and certainly enjoyed attempting to make sense of suggestions from other people. So, providing I get some responses in the comments section below I’ll start working through the ideas next week, ideally every (week)day until I’m done.
Naturally, there are a couple of dangers with a project like this. First, I get no responses at all and am thoroughly embarrassed by trying this in the first place. Secondly, I get too many responses after this post becomes an Internet Viral Sensation and I find myself writing responses until the very end of time. One of these scenarios is more likely than the other, I know.
Should you feel so inclined do post your ideas/requests/etc in the comments box below. I look forward to seeing what you’ve got to throw at me. Cheers.
GREAT IDEA! Several:
Go to some public event, movie showing, oddball festival and give some impressions.
Revisit an older post and talk about what’s changed in the situation and/or your perspective.
Take a photo with your camera phone. Post it and give it some context—physical, emotional, physioemotional, etc.
A list of ideas for me to blog about whilst I’m clearing my throat, if you will.
Write about a social issue that concerns you. Try to contact someone in your government about it, and document how successful you were in getting through—were you able to get in contact? Did your government official agree to help?
A dystopian vision if life without beers?
The future of rock and roll.
Thanks guys! I will endeavour to write responses to each as these as soon as possible. Some may take longer than others as a few of these ideas may need some research/actual going out into the real world before I start! Thanks again.
