Impromptu Poll/ Opinion Thinger

August 20th, 2010 by Jules Leave a reply »

Thinger. See, I’m being all technical and stuff. I’m having a toaster moment and can’t think of the appropriate word. Hopefully by the time I am finished with this impromptu thinger, it will be all clear what it is that I am asking of you lovelies.

I’m in a bit of a creative drought in a fashion. I find that I’m wanting to write and/or share ideas but I’m not quite sure what it is I want to write. The things that I could easily write about at the moment they fall in the 1) Sooper Sekrit can’t talk about; or 2) none of your bloody business; categories. But I’m feeling a little stifled or muted, so to speak, in the creative area. I need to find some outlet or process and I’m unable to gain ideas. Or maybe I have ideas but I don’t know if you really want to hear them.

I don’t know if it is real or imagined but sometimes I feel as if I have set a bit of a precedent regarding what I write about, both here and on Geeky Pleasures. I think it is safe to assume (even though I really don’t like assumptions) that I could pretty much write about whatever in this space and people would be cool with it as long as I was writing and/or sharing. But I’d like to know, what would you like me to write about?

I am truly curious about this. Tell me what you think is a good topic for me to share or discuss. Now just because you suggest something, doesn’t necessarily mean I will write about. Some suggestions may fall under my list of things I don’t discuss in public. Others may not. Some things I may have to seriously contemplate because I’m not sure what category they fall in. All I know at this moment is I want to share, I’m feeling blarghityboo and I want to know what interests you.

So this is what I ask. Please let me know in the comments below. I know a lot of my readers like to tweet me their thoughts regarding my blogs here and posts on Geeky Pleasures. I strongly ask that you leave them here, even if it means filling out your info. You can make up a fake name for all that I care. However, do to spam filters, fake email address will be flagged as spam. So if you are so kind to humour me, I’ll be kind enough to do the same (unless it falls into things mentioned above).

And maybe nobody will leave their ideas and in time I’ll figure something out. However, I do think this will be a fun thing to try and I have nothing to lose by asking and everything to gain.

    I would find it interesting if you posted your opinions on current events, news, and issues.

    • Jules says:

      Could you be more specific? That covers a lot of territory. A specific news item, issue or event you have in mind specifically? I wouldn’t even know where to begin on those topics without some clear direction.

      • Alcnor says:

        Well, I certainly found our “discussion” on gay rights interesting. Of course, you could also use the fairly entertaining method of pulling a headline from the news that particularly enrages/amuses you and using that for blog fodder.

  2. Sounds like you’re in a bit of the Writer’s Block rut.

    You can do what a friend of mine used to do – Pull out the Phone Directory from a large city. Look up your name. Call the person 5 down on the list from you.

    Say ‘Hi, I’m Jules. I noticed you’re only 5 names down from me in the phone book. Want to go out and have a beer, or cruise for some chicks?’

    Then again, that might not be quite what you’re thinking of.

    Pick a topic you like and write. It’ll come. Between SooperSecret stuff and the generic Press Releases, you need to do something creative. Like we all have the time for that.

    Or instead, go talk to this guy. Love the new doodles. His Pooh/Starwars/Calvin&Hobbes stuff is killing me!

      That’s to problem Tom, I can’t even grasp any topic in my head to pick it. It is just empty. No ideas. Just this hazy fog of blarghityboo and needed to write something but having no idea what that something is.

      Hilarious phone book thing, but there are no people with my last name here. Maybe 20 families with my last name in the entire country and they are all my relatives lol.

      And it isn’t only generic press releases at GP but I do know what it is you are trying to say.

      I’m just at a complete empty. I need topic suggestions because I cannot think of anything myself.

  3. Just write what you feel. If yous can’t, write around what you feel in code… about topics relating to it.

    This is why I make lists. I never really get to talk about what I want. This is probably because I think like a circus performer. Or a space alien

      See my comment to Tom. I’ve written what I feel. Nothing is interesting me. This place will not be updated unless people give me input.
