Finding the fun

Two things that are making my day today:

1. David Kuo's blog on how his dog's persistent hope for treats--even when it's been a long time since that hope was rewarded--is a great model for prayer. (As THAT DOG will attest, you just never know when all that persistence will pay off and some yummy morsel beyond your wildest dreams will land on the floor right between your paws).

2. No One Cares What You Had For Lunch: 100 Ideas For Your Blog. The title alone has had me laughing for over an hour. I'm off to make a baloney sandwich (not that you care) and learn to write world-changing posts. I'll be skipping the suggestion that I blog entries from my old journals, though. Nothing good could ever come of that.

Are you sure, Trish? My guess is that your journals are a gold mine!

Oh thanks for the great links, I do grab stuff from my journal occasionally, but mostly it's just funny dating stories and mishaps.

Patti said...

what about my midafternoon snack, or dinner?! surely someone cares about that.

ok, fine, i'll stop calling you shirley....

When I'm having a bad day, I look at my dog. Every day is new to her, and, for the most part, she thinks things will turn out fine :-)

Susie said...

Oooh I totally want to read that book. Sounds funny! And helpful too :)

Barrie said...

Well, I forgot to have lunch today! Ha! (and probably no one cares about that either. ;) )

Perhaps you could post the first sentence of each of your daily journal items. We'd read it, not that you'd want to write it.

Am enjoying browing through J-Walking. Thanks for the link.

Say hi to Lynette if she's still around!

wow, a book on blogging?! I had to check it out. That's quite a market, huh? funny:) Gavin's appalled but I may actually get one...

Ooh, must go see the second one. Of course, I think it's all in the delivery. The most capable writing can turn an ordinary topic into something riveting, while a terrific topic can be rendered dull in the execution.

Love this sample idea from the book description:

“Conducting unnecessary experiments”

*grabs chemistry set* Definitely one to try!
