For the majority of the two and a half years I’ve run this blog knowing that I actually have an audience reading every stupid word I say, I have maintained continuity and avoided lengthy periods without fresh material by having several weekly features. Thursdays and Saturdays have been locked down for years now with comics and squirrel pictures, Mondays are all about my shitty taste in music, and I swear at some point I will commit myself to reviving Retro TV Ad Tuesday!
Since Friday is a day I have no excuse not to be able to come up with posts for regularly, I have done my best to keep that day alive with my usual brand of squirreliness over the years. It started out with Flashback Friday, which I thought would continue on forever and ever until I realized good retro ideas didn’t grow on trees like money does.
So before Friday became too dead, I quickly replaced it with what became my infamous Millionaire Journey. That covered a nice 8 month block of Fridays, and may very well end up being my blog’s magnum opus. At the very least, it was the feature I had the most fun creating… and like a lot of my readers, I do wish it could have never ended!
After a month break, I began filling Fridays with my short but sweet Zodiac series. While I did get a few ideas from others for how to build on and continue that series, they will be items I may revisit at another time…
And while I’ve come up with a few possible new Friday features to take up this day for many weeks to come… none of them have really jumped out at me as a surefire hit. And I don’t want to post crap just to have something posted… I don’t want to read a blogger’s space filler any more than you all would.
So that’s where I’m turning it over to all of you, my readers! Starting next Friday, and continuing on until the idea pool is exhausted, I want you to come up with some kind of prompt for me to make a post out of! It can be whatever you want to see here…. within reason, of course.
This is kinda like when those A to Z bloggers ask for topics before they begin… only you aren’t restricted to certain letters. And you can be much more specific with what you want your prompt to become…. are you wanting an essay? A drawing? Photography? Some other silly thing I wouldn’t even think of right off the bat? Just remember that, as you should know by now if you do more than just blindly click the Like button on my posts, I take pretty much everything lightly… so keep that in mind when suggesting a prompt!
I’ll include a contact form at the bottom (my first one ever… so I hope it works right), and encourage everyone who reads my blog to send in a suggestion for a future Friday post! I will recognize and link to each blogger when I use their idea (Unless you really want to remain anonymous, and please say so if you do). Please, only one suggestion per person!
So what are you waiting for? Help inspire a future Friday at The Nest!
