Gimmick Search Is Still On!

Right, so I'm still looking for a good gimmick to work into the remaining months of this blog. Something that might make more folks read it ... something ... anyone got any good suggestions???

The winner gets ... what do ya want?



  1. ok, 1) be true to yourself - otherwise it wont resonate.
    2) be careful what you wish for!
    I was excited when people started reading my blog, but now I get feedback on stuff I really just write for me, and I feel like saying "Oy! If you dont like it, go away!"

  2. Hahaha...too true, I didn't think about that aspect of feedback...LOL! Still, I would love it if more than 5 people were reading this ... don't know why ... haha!

  3. Gimmick Ideas;
    1. Post headlines should be the title of a movie/book/album, somehow relevant to the post. Maybe too much work for you?
    2. Every third ordway is in igpay latin.
    3. Weekly trivia: link the blog to your FB account and post a question about the weeks' entries at a given time. First to correctly answer wins! What, I'm not sure, but WINNER!
    4. Weekly Q&A
    5. Friday's entry written from your Blackberry while sauced on some new cocktail you just invented. Followed by a review of said cocktail, and a description of how to make it. You could start by borrowing my "Snarling Whippet" cocktail...easy, inexpensive and damned good.
    6. Do a "Dear Maggie" column once a week. Though, again, this requires a following to really get going. And I really don't want to know which of our cousins has chlamydia.

    OK, I'm spent

  4. Interesting idears Mike ... and oddly, I almost wrote my last posts title in inpay atinlay (great minds and all that)!

    I like them all, but I especially like #5 ...

    I'll ponder them all and figure out which one to apply to the month of May and see how it goes. Right now I'm leaning towards #2 or #5 ... any thoughts from the others in this peanut gallery?
