Random Blog Prompt Friday

I found myself, after one entire week of blogging, stumped.  So I Googled "blog prompts" and copied and pasted a number of prompts generated by a random blog prompt generator.  And now I'm going to mock answer them.

“If you could change one thing about your blog, what would that one thing be?”
     Lots and lots and lots more people just like you would be reading it.  Also, I would receive a sizable check in the mail each month for writing it.  I'm not clear on where this check would come from, but that's not important.  It's a writing prompt, ok?  I'm just trying to be honest here.

“If you were a doughnut, what kind of doughnut would you be?”
     Wait, seriously?  Do people write entire posts based on this question?!  Dude.  I'm feeling a little betrayed, random blog prompt generator.  I mean, is this all you have for me?
      Chocolate.  Obviously.  With sprinkles.

“How important are spelling and grammar in the world of blogging? Is it the thought that really counts, or does lack of formality destroy the message?”
     Are you kidding me?  If you have to ask, I am never, ever going to read your blog.  Ever.

“Advertising - modern art or brain washing?” 
     Who cares?  Somebody hand me my credit card, I need that.

“How do you feel about paid blogging sites like PayPerPost and Blogitive?”
     Wait.  There paid blogging sites?  And I'm doing this for you people for free?

“I dare you to refresh this page and write about the next shown prompt.” 
     Isn't that what I'm doing here?  I'm refreshing the page, and I'm answering the questions.  I mean, honestly.  If this "I dare you" "prompt" wasn't here, I would be looking at the next prompt right now, and writing about it already.  I would be done writing about it.  So thanks for wasting my time, buddy.  Real nice.

“How has your approach at blogging changed since you first started your blog?” 
     Well, a week ago I didn't have to go to random prompt generators for content.  The bloom is off the rose.

“Are there honest ways to earn money on the internet, or does the real revenue come from "playing expert" and teaching others how to try and make money on the internet?”
     Um....did you get burned by some kind of internet scam?  I'm sorry.

“Why do you write your blog?”
     I haven't figured out how to trick somebody else into writing it for me.  Hey-o!

“List things you are curious about. ”
     Jeggings.  Just...why?
     Why does my hair do that thing in the back that I can't ever fix?
     Do people really think "Love You Forever" is an appropriate book for children?  Really?
     Is anybody still reading this post?  If so, why?

“Did you know that the Arts and Crafts movement is experiencing a comeback in our modern times of rampant consumerism and impersonal craftsmanship?”
     I did not.

 “Remember limericks? Cuplets? Sonnets? Haiku? Choose a form of poetry and write a poem in that form about the day's events.”
     Spent all day at work
     My life ain't haiku-worthy
     Forget it, I'm done


  1. Thank you! I've always thought Love You Forever was just a bit scary and more than a little creepy.

  2. Yes, I read the entire post and not just because I'm your mother and I have to. Love you forever, Sweetie.

  3. @Cynthia M.
    Dude. Mom. Really? Nightmare city. Just stay away from my bedroom window with your ladder, ok?

  4. Literally LOL about your answer to the Arts & Crafts movement question. Also, dear blog prompt generator, I believe you meant to say "couplet." I do like the idea of tiny cups though.

  5. @Danae
    Ha! I read that, spent a minute trying to recall 9th grade language arts, did I miss something?, and decided to give the random blog prompt generator the benefit of the doubt rather than actually looking it up. NEVER AGAIN!

  6. Why viewers still make use of to read news papers when in this technological globe everything is existing on net?

  7. A motivating discussion is definitely worth
    comment. I believe that you need to write more on this
    topic, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do not
    discuss such issues. To the next! Many thanks!!
