Top 10 Bad Ideas For a Blog Post

OK, so I'm feeling a little uninspired blog-wise.  I'm digging deep for something to write about, but it's just not coming.  And as much as I poke Audrey with a cattle prod, she's just not coming through for me with anything good.  Once you've said, "Let's do some smelling" the bar is set pretty high.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...berating Minnie, misusing pronouns, scripting TV shows...get some new material sister!  With Audrey evidently on strike, I'm having to think outside the box...

10)  My birth story.  "...and then they delivered the placenta and I experienced an overwhelming craving for liver..."

9)  The 30 Days of Poop Project.  Chronicling Audrey's doodies over the course of a month.  Although Dani G might like this one.

8)  The story of this really stupid family that I know with really stupid ugly kids and how much I hate them but at least they read my blog.

7)  Guest Blogger:  Audrey's Bus Driver!  In which she tells everyone what a bizzotch I am.  Get your own blog, snatch hat.

6)  How I screw the IRS (and you can too!) by padding my itemized medical deduction.  Those GFCF Double Chocolate Chunk cookies that were gone by the time I hit the checkout are IN!!

5)  Top 10 MLK Day Pet Peeves

4)  How to get blog material out of your special needs child by using a cattle prod.

3)  OCD Blog Hop.  Everyone would share their worst OCD tendency and then have to comment on each and every entry, not just the two immediately before them, or else something really bad will happen to them.

2)  Suspicious Mole Mondays.  This would be photo-based and track the growth of any suspicious protuberances on your body from week to week.

And the #1 bad idea for a blog post...

1)  Sh*t The Voices Inside My Head Say

51 comments:

  1. The voices in your head might have something interesting to say. You should let them out when you run out of blog fodder otherwise LOL.

  2. You had me at snatch hat. I'm not sure what your deal is with that bus driver. She seems so nice.

    My vote - OCD Blog Hop. I'm starting one today.

  3. I'll have to email you ideas when i think if them- it seems like there's something every day that I think you should write a blog post about :)

  4. voices in your head!! Now that would.be.awe.some.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I think atleast 50% of them make really interesting posts

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm kind of into the idea about the bus driver... maybe ask her if she has a blog we can check out? ;)
    I have days like this too - where I sit at the blank screen and watch the clock tick by. But then I remember that Bachelor is on again, so I just close the laptop and watch girls throw themselves over the schmuck.

  7. Well, since I seem to talk about poop without a filter these days, thinking everyone else talks about poop, because well, poop is one of the central themes of my life...so I'm thinking 30 Days of Poop might be interesting...then again...maybe not? How about the #1.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I thought they were supposed to be bad ideas! They sound good to me. Each of those posts has some good marketing points. I kinda like the idea of selling cattle prods with your logo on them.

    ReplyDelete
  9. These ideas are so awesome and just what I needed on this shitty, shitty day.

    I hope you don't give up on Suspicious Mole Mondays, I really think you have something there

    ReplyDelete
  10. Voices inside your head. I want to compare. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I definitely think we need to hear the bus drivers side of the story.

    Now I have just been reminded I have Bachelor to catch up on, so I must big you adieu...

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm pretty interested in hearing more about 8, 3 and 1.... As long as 8 isn't about us.

    But be honest, is the voice in your head REALLY saying much that doesn't eventually make it to your actual voice?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Again, I'm with Jen, let's hear what snatch hat has to say. The jocularity could be hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'd post a comment but I have to reply to everyone on the Autism Blogs Directory or something bad will happen and then I've got this mole I've got to check out and the voices in my head are saying I need to buy cattle prods...

    ReplyDelete
  15. You didn't do your birth story yet? I thought that was a prerequisite to being a mom-blogger...

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am so down for the moles and the poop. I can even add pictures for both.

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOVE number 3, even if I am OCD enough to ask that everyone reads the two before them on the bloghop I run. OK, ok, ok, so I am a *little* OCD *harumph*

    Fortnight Fortnight Fortnight

  18. I started laughing at "With Audrey evidently on strike"!

    I like # 7. Wouldn't we all like to get to know Audrey's bus driver? (BTW- I loved that post.)

    #3 would be fun and I could contribute a lot. People would be here for hours according to your reply rules.

    And I am just hoping that you are not talking about my family with #8.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm down with the OCD blog hop, but ONLY if you call it CDO...because it REALLY should be in alphabetical order. :-)

    As for "snatch hat" aka "crazy mcbitchington" YEP! Still ROFLMAO!!!

    Thanks for the smile, Lynn.

  20. @Cara: We should team up...you can be the ideas girl and I'll execute.

    @cooperl788 @Jen: I'm actually not doing the Bachelor this time around. Yeah, that totally came out right.

    @bbsmum: You are so my target audience.

    @lebelinoz: cramps, epidural, pushing, wah.

    @Aimee @dluvscoke: If you both think #8 is directed at you, you need to start a Paranoia Blog Hop. That could be really fun. Everybody does a "blind item" about someone and everyone else on the hop thinks it's about them.

    @jencull: You can join in on the Paranoia Blog Hope since you think my blog hop comment was about your fortnightly hop. Every time a blogger uses the word fortnight an angel gets his wings...

  21. I'm really conflicted....
    Snatch hat! Snatch hat! Snatch hat!
    Poop! Poop! Poop!

    In case I don't say it enough, it really warms my heart that when you think of poop, you think of me ;)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Are you stealing the posts from my blog?

    I've been struggling a bit lately too!

    At least your bad post ideas are funny!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I pick 7, 3 and 1. Am I the only one who doesn't know what a cattle prod looks like?

    ReplyDelete
  24. The voices in my head say they want you to let the voices in your head take over the blog! I love the idea of Audrey on strike - she wants better hours and more cookies and some damn Paprika.

    ReplyDelete
  25. OK, number 8 had me seriously laughing out loud! :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. My new blog post idea: "10 People I Plan to Call 'Snatch Hat' Immediately!"

    Man, I've missed you ...

    ReplyDelete
  27. OCD Blog Hop!

    Just as soon as I check my e-mail ONE MORE TIME.

    Fortnight!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. So...as soon as you post some BAD blog ideas...let me know. Snatch hat, Voices, Poop, Placenta, OCD blog hopping...more please...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh...P.S...Sorry your post was too wonderful and I forgot to thank you for stopping by my SITS day and helping to make it wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  30. @mamafog: I keep thinking of that thing he used in No Country For Old Men, but I think that was slightly more than a prod.

    @Amanda: Missed you too! Where have you been??? Can't wait for your top 10 and I'd better not be on it.

    @Taradise: When you list it all in one sentence like that, it sounds downright deranged. Wait.

    ReplyDelete
  31. We totally need to do that OCD blog hop!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I had a beef with MILK Jr Day in that I didn't get it off. But then I realized, wait, I don't work Mondays, ever. Still, i think it means I should get Tuesday off.

    For feeling uninspired you sure made a doozy of a post. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Classic, I definitely need to work on my "Mommy Vocab"!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hilarious! I think I've see some of these blog posts around. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have a special needs child and until this moment, I never realized I could stop moping and start laughing about things. Thank you, SITSta! I'm following you, and honestly, can we just get a picture of the bus driver, at least?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Clever. The enchanted life of a mom who loves well.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Very funny. I am thinking about writing my birth story, well my daughter's of course - I do not remember my own, but I really don't want to bother anyone with it. Thanks for setting me straight. That's what diaries are for!

    Happy SITS Day! enjoy the comment love today.

    Congrats on your SITS day! I'm a reader and a follower, but somehow I missed this post (I think I was out of town with limited computer access) so I'm glad you listed it as a fav post! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yeah, if I could make it for the OCD blog hop I'd be sooo in, bad or not! Congrats on your SITS day my dear!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I see special needs moms with asshat bus drivers all the time. If only they took the time to think about who they were putting at the front of the bus. Sadly, the job field is dominated by said asshats.

    Congrats on the SITS day!
