Making This Blog Hot

You know you’re in dire straits when you have to google “blog post ideas.”

I’ve tried, tried, tried to come up with a post for today, but everything I’ve written has either been garbage or there wasn’t enough substance to make a full post. So to Google I went. As luck would have it, I came across a website with an article called 101 Blog Post Ideas That Will Make Your Blog “Hot.” 

Hell yes. Hotness is just what this blog has been lacking.

I scrolled through the list and came across some interesting things, like Host a giveaway. Interesting, but what the fuck would I give away? Lord of the Rings toys? Dirty diapers? The right to name my next child (even though a third child isn’t happening)?

On to another idea. Criticize a website/blog or a person. Oooh, yes, I could have my own Burn Book type post and talk shit about all of my fellow bloggers.

tumblr_mdwkwernis1rla5a5o2_500“Fuck John for not telling me more about his swagger.” Or “To hell with NotAPunkRocker for skipping Christmas cards.” Or maybe “Damn that NerdInTheBrain and her gratitude.”

Eh, maybe not. I’m not a fan of people hating me.

Number 9 is Tell a personal secret. Is there anything I haven’t overshared on already, though? Then there is Bust a myth. Is this kind of like Bust-A-Move? (Fun fact: my husband clued me in on the fact that one of my favorite arcade games shares the same name as a song.) Myth busting seems like it would take more effort than trying to come up with a legit blog post, though. And more than likely, Snopes has already got to it

Number 34 is Start a poll. I’ve never done a poll on this blog before, so there’s no time like the present, right?

That doesn’t really make for much of a post, though, does it? I suppose I could discuss my leg shaving habits in a post of its own and have the poll and all, but I kinda doubt anyone would want to read that.

Directly after that is #35 Write a post about things you regret doing/not doing. Um, no. I’m not trying to add to the depression. Maybe I’ll hit that up in January.

Halfway through the list is #51 Create a blog post about your bad habits – Smoking, alcohol, drugs. Tell them something shocking!

Dafuq? That’s just a little too much enthusiasm for someone else’s struggles, person who created that list! And I’m stopping at that one. I now have something resembling a blog post put together, plus I want to save the other half of this list for tomorrow or another day this month when I can’t come up with much of anything to write.

Looking at numbers 1 through 51 on that list only, which is your favorite? Anything you’re likely to use? Maybe the Publish your CV online suggestion?

  1. I think my favorite was the one about sharing your to-do list. I know my readers would probably be enchanted and enthralled with reading about my laundry and dropping off donations for the Science Olympiad team at Grace’s school and picking up library books. I mean, who wouldn’t want to know that stuff??? 😉

    And I’m glad to finally know your true feelings about my gratitude. 😉

    (This post is brilliant, by the way.) 😀

  2. I’m into lucky # 13. Besides, I was tired of the list by then 😉 Anyway, I’ve always wanted to come up with some really wild, totally implausible conspiracy theory and see if it takes off. Hmmm, maybe I should do it….

  3. I’m already hot for your blog. In an intellectual way. Please don’t grow your leg hairs out. Thinking about prickly legs makes me shudder, no matter how far apart we are.
    I did a series on my drunkenness one week. People read the hell out of it, (and still do) but they don’t Like or comment much 😉

    • Haha! I showed Sam this post and he expressed the same on the leg hair. Guess he isn’t into someone rubbing prickly legs on him in bed.

      I’ll have to look for that series. And maybe steal it! Idea #102-plagiarize people.

  4. You wrote a list about a list! That’s like dreaming your dreaming. Inception kind of shit! Mind blown! Though #4 – interview a person. That would be fun. I bet you could come up with great questions 🙂

  5. Maybe I’ll go with #18: “Write down all the thoughts you had in mind today”

    EVERY. SINGLE. STINKIN’. THOUGHT..

    Because if there’s one thing I know about the thoughts that run randomly through my mind in any given day, it’s that those thoughts are blogging GENIUS. Much interest. So logic.

    Prepare for the onslaught of hotness.

  6. That is a seriously weird list. Not just the topics but the explanations under them “write an in memorium post – because it’s polite.” David Bowie died. I am going to write a post about him not because I enjoyed his music or liked anything about him as an artist, person, etc but because that seems proper. So does trashing other blogs! Begging your blog readers to please give you more traffic (then bragging about how much of it you have) is a great way to grow a blog too!

    Is that one of those posts where they give advice that is actually just humor?

    • Based on the edit to that post, which added an extra 30 or so items because the readers had suggestions/asked for more, I think it was meant to be serious. I sure got a kick out of it though 😀
