What do you do when you are out of ideas? Do you have something in mind that you think might be a plan but are not quite sure how to make it work?
Accept the dare.
The boys in A Christmas Story use the dare regarding the debate over frozen lampposts and tongues as a challenge, an opportunity to prove each other wrong and come out as the winner, but I think a dare can be amazingly helpful. When ever I am stuck for an idea – I ask people to challenge me.
In the spirit of B.A.C.O.N., I asked my co-blogger Paul to assign me a list of blog titles that I would write. Having it sent to me as specific titles instead of generic topic ideas forced me to use ideas I probably would not have come up with myself. The first one I chose to do Has social media changed language and how we communicate? led to a rather heated discussion over on Google+.
I feel the act of accepting a dare of creativity makes for a more adventurous style of writing and helps keep it fresh and exciting for me a blogger. Another time Paul and I dared each other on the Thill Blog, was when we both wrote a post on the same subject. “What I Have Learned About Business (and Life) from Doctor Who” Here are the links to compare mine and Paul’s.
Now – my dare to you.
One post a month will be dedicated to a reader submitted title. You can submit one for either me or Paul, the subject should be business, tech or social media related.
