The New Stuff

So, I’m feeling pretty good about this blog thing. I’ve hit a pretty solid stride, and I even occasionally manage to get a little bit ahead. I can’t get cocky yet, I’ve fallen from higher levels of progress before, but still, I’m doing okay, for me, at least. I’m moving at the end of the month, so I’m trying to get ahead solidly to avoid missing posts during the transition. It’s been tricky. The biggest thing I’m finding is that I have trouble coming up with more than one Wednesday post topic per week. So, if you guys want me to write on any particular topic, please let me know, suggestions are very welcome.

One of the things I promised myself when I started this push for a three a week blog posts was that when it got easy, I would take more stuff on. Well, Minions, it’s gotten easy. It’s time for new projects to stack on to this thing. I already have one secret project in the works, but that’s a bit off yet, and a bit of a bigger chunk-type deal, so I’m looking for something more regular and bite-sized to do. So, twice in one post I’m asking for suggestions from the Minions. What would you like to see here every week? Feel free to suggest whatever. I really want to try something fun and unique, so if you have something cool, there’s a pretty good chance I’ll try it for at least a little while.

See you in the comments, and then I’ll see you Friday.

    Movie Tuesdays
    Game Thursdays
    ….or something interactive that the minions compete to the death for.

    I suggest a new weekly “Done in one” role play session, where each minion gets to add his character. Basically, it would go like this:

    Original post that sets up situation
    Minion posts reply, and only one reply each.
    You post one resolution as a reply to each minion’s reply, no more, no less.

    Depending what situations, it could be fun — more of setup for punchline jokes or reeeeeeeeeeeeally fast fight sequences.

    As a variant, do a weekly “choose your own adventure” where you post a paragraph, perhaps two, of a story and then ask what should happen next. Chose from the suggestions or set up a poll. Only a paragraph or two of writing a week for what may be very entertaining.

    For Wednesdays, do a series on books that really influenced you growing up — maybe see if you can find one per grade for a sequence of four grades or so. It would take a month of posting and tell us all more about Ben.

    For better or worse.

    Cooking segment. Written or recorded. I don’t find making a meal quite as exciting as making desert. ^^

    Book review. Why is Dreden an awesome series?

    Game review. (You can’t tell me that you don’t have plenty of computer games to work through)

    Board games, musical instruments, fish, weirdest show you’ve ever watched, book that should be a show, book that should not have become a show…
