Today I didn’t know what to blog about. Luckily Start Blogging Online had 101 tips to make my blog so HOT it will burn another hole in the ozone layer.
I didn’t know which one of the tips to use, so I figured it was safest to include all of them (well the first 50 for now).
HOT BLOGNESS HERE I COME!
#1 Run a contest
First person to reply on this post gets a virtual egg. Do it. You know you want to.
#2 Review books/products/films
Birdemic is terrible. You should watch it now.
#3 Make comprehensive guide/tutorial
How to Make Toast: Put the bread in a toaster and push the thing down, you dummy.
#4 Interview someone
ME: So, do you like stuff?
WIFE: Shhh, MasterChef is on.
ME: Thank you for your time.
#5 Post a cool infographic
(The red portion represents the percentage of USA’s population that drive a hybrid. The white portion is everyone else. Standard error +/- 95%)
#6 Criticize a website/blog or a person
Donald Trump is not very good.
Tony Abbott is not very good.
Chad Kroeger is not very good.
Michael Mann is not very good.
Zack Synder is not very good.
Janet Albrechtsen is not very good.
… Damn I could have just done a whole post on this one.
#7 Make a post full of GIFs
I refuse to do this one. I know that it’s popular to make “Goats I’d Fool around with” posts these days, but it’s just not my thing.
#8 Create a photo post
There you go. It’s now a photo post.
#9 Tell a personal secret
I once ate a piece of butter because I thought it was cheese.
#10 Write inspirational/motivational post with famous quotes
“When life sucks just remember that it’s okay because one day you’ll be dead anyway.” – Me.
#11 Share recent travel experiences
I rode my bike into the city today. I saw a swan.
#12 Host a giveaway
More prizes?! Ok, fine. Second commenter also gets a virtual egg.
#13 Write down a conspiracy theory
Theory: All conspiracy theorists are working together in a conspiracy to make themselves seem stupid and annoying, so that everyone else gets sick of them and sends them out into space, because that’s where they always wanted to live.
#14 Show log files of intense conversations
Person 1: You suck!
Person 2: No, you do!
Person 1: Woah this is getting intense.
Person 2: True. Maybe we should stop before things get out of hand.
Person 1: Good suggestion. Want some virtual egg?
#15 Write a short story
For Sale. Baby shoes. Never worn because some idiot bought us the wrong sized baby shoes for our perfectly healthy baby.

Oh I’m awake.

I want to finish this blog post. It’s taking a long time. I don’t know if I’ll ever achieve my goal.
#20 Make a link carnival and ask others to join
A what now? Well okay, here’s a link. Join in. Is it a carnival yet?
#21 Announce that you’ve turned the comments into “do-follow” so you can get more comments
I don’t get this one either. But hey it just says I have to announce it, not follow through with it. So …
I have turned the comments into a do-follow!

The gay marriage Supreme Court decision in USA was pretty great. No joke here.

#25 Share your favorite blogs/bloggers in one post
Here’s a blog about cheese. That’s all you’re getting. Don’t be greedy.
#26 Invite your readers to submit guest posts
Yeah okay. They’d better be as good as that cheese guy’s posts.

I believe I’ve covered this.
#28 Share your blogs income + traffic numbers
Zero and pretty close to negligible.
#29 Tell a joke

#30 Bust a myth
MYTH: The Earth is hollow.
TRUTH: No it’s not, you idiots. Do really believe that? What the hell are you thinking? I mean, for f***’s sake, aren’t you embarrassed? I wouldn’t even be able to show my face among other conspiracy theorists if I believed that. Even the people that believe in Bigfoot must be shaking their heads in disbelief at you. Go take a long look at yourself. Come back when you’re ready to apologise.
#31 Produce or publish your art

I’m kind of regretting starting this post.

How many roads must a man walk down before he admits that Bob Dylan wasn’t even that great?

And 28% of facts are ripped-off from Simpsons quotes?

This date once successfully defended a kitchen from a whole platoon of enemy prunes.
#41 Tell about your latest event experiences
I went to a Jazz Festival. I saw a swan.
#42 Publish your CV online
Well, it’s not really mine, but I think this is quite a nice looking check valve.
#43 Post an obvious lie
Start Blogging Online’s advice for this one …
“You can turn things upside down when you tell an obvious lie inside your blog post. People might get mad at you, but that doesn’t matter.”
Wait, so lying about things to purposely get attention and piss people off doesn’t matter?
Okay, I’ll take their advice … no it doesn’t matter.
#44 Write where you’d like to travel
To the centre of our Hollow Earth.
#45 Blog about marketing secrets
Keep all your money under your bed. Depreciation can’t get to it there.

Write better blog posts than this one. Watch Birdemic.
