How Bad Do you Want It?

Yesterday, we talked about Blog Fodder.
When I say "we", I mean me.  I just don't want to feel alone.
It got me thinking about how hard it can be to come up with blog material.

How bad do you want it?
Are you willing to embarrass yourself?
Embarrass those around you?
Prostitute yourself for the sake of your followers?
I knew you were as sick as I am.

The thing is, I work from home.
I rarely have to leave the house.
My lack of human interaction has become a hindrance on my blogging.
I know that in order to find adequate material I must poke my nose out of my cave and go in search of it.
Sometimes you can't find it and you have to get the ball rolling.
Take the first step.
Create your own destiny.

I've come up with a few suggestions
for those of you that are in dire need of material.

Are you willing to go the extra mile?

1)  Take a walk downtown and take pictures of strangers. 
     Then take out a notebook and ask them,
     "How many copies will you be needing of that?"

2)  When the A/C repair man comes to your door,
      give him a big hug and say, "That's from Holly".
      I'm pretty sure Jo did that one yesterday.

3)  When standing in line at the bank, turn around to
      the person behind you and say,
      "Remember, we never had this conversation."

4)  Call Pizza Hut and ask if they rent pizzas.

5)  While walking down the street, hold out your Slurpee
      in front of a stranger  and say,
    "Seriously man, you've got to try this!"

And then blog about it. 
Double Dog Dare Ya!



just call me jo said...

You truly are a sick, warped little blogger...I just love you! But no, I did NOT hug Saul the A/C repairman. (But I secretly thought of it. And I smiled. Saul never knew.) Have fun "selling" your dignity for a post.

I don't want to do the Pizza Hut one, cause Honey loves their pizza and if I call there, he will want to place an order.......

No,no,no and no. But you go ahead Holly and share with us. You are so funny. ALways know I will get a laugh here. I have been known to lie in strange positions in the front yard for photos and when asked I told my neighbor it was for a photography class. Well I am learning right?

I'm thinking from the date of my last post I don't want it very gets harder to think of something the longer you blog...sometimes I think I just need to get back to real life...

You are at a disadvantage being in your 'cave' so much...but your wicked little mind seems to be working just fine without human inner action! You crazy girl.

I don't have an A/C, so that tip is out. My bank is very small and I know everyone, so my comment would be spread around town in 2 seconds. But I DOOOO like the one about taking pictures of strangers. It's a busy weekend here, so there are alot of 'pigeons' out there for the plucking. Stay tuned........

I find that all I need for blog fodder is a camera, no pride and a prodigious ability to lie.
