Did you make your way through the list? Till the bitter end? Well, if you did, I take my hat/head off to you sir/madam/alien/dog/whatever! If you've still got some suggestions of your own: try. me. out. I'm all ears (or eyes) (or, like, nose) (well no, that would be stupid. I apologise. No noses will be listening or reading your comments, I promise). Anyway, I thought it to be fun that -when I use one of these ideas- that I'll link the blogpost in this list. So it becomes a 'working list'. Something I 'work my way through'. Something I can reference throughout my blogging career ('career'). What do you think? WHAT DO YOU THINK?

  1. I THINK. that you. are. so. quirkily philosophical. AND I BLIMMIN' LOVE IT. All of these post ideas are so unique to you. My favorite is, 'this list is too short'. Now that is a great idea for a blog post ;). Personally, I identify as Mongolian, and a gold fish, and I am rather offended that you did not include that within your list of genders. You must be racist against goldfish. On the other hand, I only listen with my nose, so I find it quite strange that you, in fact, do not listen with your nose. But I guess not everyone can be as perfect as I am. Wow, that was fun. Thanks Dominique!

    1. It only seems right to reply to this comment in list-form...

      1. I'm glad you agree that 'this list is too short' is one of my finest moments. It indeed reflects my philosophy in life. In love. In blog.
      2. GOLD FISH *angrily puts fist in the air* Gold fish are nothing but liars! I mean, where's the gold? They've betrayed me from the moment I looked one of them in the eye and asked 'Are you really made out of gold?' and that distatasteful creature looked back at me, casually winked and said 'Blub'. From that day on I knew I could never trust a gold fish again. As you also identify as a Mongolian I will tolerate you, but please, leave the fishtail at home.
      3. I was a nose-listener once, but then I got a cold. Never truly recovered from that... *snorts* *sad face* *snorts again*

      Thank you for this comment it really made my day. It's something to keep me going while I'm trying to workout a projectcontract for an internship, which just makes you want to sigh (or sign hahahaha. no.) away your life. Not the actual internship is sigh-full, but setting up that contract is. Deeply. *deep sigh*

    2. Well, at least there is a contract to be signed. And your comments always make me laugh. So you are racist against gold fish. hmph. racist. To you I say this: blub.

  2. Oh my god this is incredibly inspiring! I really want to get back on the blogging bandwagon this year, I should definitely do something like this!

    1. Thank you! Although I would recommend making a smaller list because after all this I sat back, looked at my screen and thought 'now what?'. A bit too excessive, I think. But certainly bringing all your ideas together is a 'cleansing' experience. ;)
