I never truly appreciated the art of blog until I started reading The Money Shot. The funny thing is that I Googled (yes, that was a verb) my own name and ended up finding a reference to me on it. I was intrigued and found that it was elementary school friend Graig. I moved around a lot when I was a kid (Chicago to Ohio to Georgia to the Bay Area) and I lost touch with many of my friends.
The point of this story is partially just to relay a gripping, dramatic story and to make the point that Graig's blog succeeds because it is a) funny b) consistent and c) has structure. I'm not 100% sure I can be as consistent (a daily blog is a big commitment) but I can try. So far, I'm thinking of something like this:
Music Monday - This bites a little bit from Adam Corolla's radio show, but it's a really great idea so I'll use it. At times I might just talk about different happenings in the music industry, my own music, or rank favorite songs.
Tuesday Sports - Tuesday is probably a good day to talk sports. Most likely baseball. Maybe NBA. Maybe Figure Skating. Who knows? Just seems like a good day to do it.
Wednesday Pop Culture - This could end up being sports also, but maybe I'll check in on TMZ and report the crazy stuff I find.
Thursday Wild Card - All topics are live on Thursday. Anything at all.
Friday TV - At least until Lost is over, then I'll re-evaluate. Feel free to recommend shows that I should watch.
We'll see if I can figure it out. Maybe I'll start doing it at lunch. I definitely want to put more effort in and I know that my blog is currently not on par with the greatness that can be blogging.
PS: What about funny picture day? That would be easy right?
