A Contest to Beat All Contests

How to rev up interest in this blog? How to inject excitement? Gee, I wish I knew!

We’re less than 3,000 away from having had 100,000 comments. I really feel I ought to do something special to mark that milestone. At the same time, my viewership is only half of what it was two years ago. What to do, what to do…?

Jazz up the prizes, maybe? Books and T-shirts–maybe that’s boring. Not to be compared to a lamp with a genie in it. Or your own little country to boss around.

I suppose I could have another contest to see who can offer the best idea for the next contest. [He just manages to duck a rotten grapefruit.] (I’m guessing that means “No!”) A foreign policy contest?

As you can see, I just don’t know! Stuck, stymied, brought to an impasse–and therefor open to suggestions. Feel free to make as many as you please.

  1. I’m sorry to see that this is the case, but not really surprised. So many negative things happening to so many people. In my condition, it wears me out in the shoulders just to
    do a little typing. I’ll hope for strength to do better.

  2. I was thinking about that the other day when I looked at the number of comments you had.
    The best idea for the next contest, well, I don’t know, let me ponder that for a while.
