Think about it. Why does anyone bother reading a blog unless they get something from it, right? A great DIY, how-to, fix it, make it look prettier, trending styles, that weird dream we have all had and are too ashamed to admit ... all these are why we love blogs and follow the writers.
I'm not doing that.
We're rich with wonderful bloggers already. My plan is backward. Instead of inspiring you, I want you to inspire me. Comment your ideas, photos, sketches; tell me what is rolling around your head saying, "Hey, someone should make this," and I just might.
And by might, I mean if I love it, I will make it and send it to you for free. Nope. I don't need your payment details, mother's maiden name or place of birth. I want your ideas:
See where I am going with this? No? Let's try again:
"Hey, Leita! Can you make me a shotglass with author's names on it? I saw a photo online but can't find where to buy one.
Well, almost. I don't believe any English Literature student will argue Hemingway tops this classic list. Let's try again:
That's it! If anyone knows who originally thought of this list of drunken authors, let me know. The original photo's owner is unfindable.
Now, it's your turn. Send me your ideas, photos (no stealing, no copies, no Disney or Hello Kitty, NFL and all the others.) Send me that brilliant quip Uncle Gary said at the dinner table on Thanksgiving and I just might use it. And by use it, I mean you'll get one, too.
Now that you know what I'm asking for, please share this to your friends, family and that funny guy on the bus.
