My sister emailed me today and said:
“You don’t blog anymore, what happened?”
This is true.
The answer is, I don’t blog because I’ve got bloggers block. I’ve spent many hours (half-hours at least) staring at my screen thinking of things to write about, and nothing happens. It’s tough. It’s like constipation but worse. At least with constipation you know there is something waiting to get out.
After my first three months of blogging everyday, April got just 13 blog posts and lots of them were videos. This is sad.
So now, as I go through this tough time, I want to ask you dear readers for help. Please comment on this post and tell me what you want me to blog about. I promise that I will blog about each and everyone of those things that you ask me to blog about*. Now is you chance you learn my opinion (or lack of) on anything you want. You can request a story on anything that interests you. I’m your blogging servant. Ask me to blog about cats – You got it. Suggest I blog about my greatest fear – Done! Request a blog on tonight’s budget – coming right up. You can even request photos, videos, paintings, drawings, dance numbers. This is the power of the internet folks, harness it!
Now I can’t guarantee that I’ll blog about the topic exactly how you want me to. If you suggest “Your biggest secret” I can promise you that I will not tell you my biggest secret. I know how the internet works and it’s not a place for storing secrets. Just so you don’t get disappointed.
Anyway, comment your requests, we’ll see what happens.
*God-willing. And it may take me a while depending how many suggestions I get. I may defer some of my blog posts commitments to the 2013 blogging season to return blog to surplus.

I would like you to blog about:
How you made the move from undies and boxers at once to just undies.
The funniest thing you have ever seen / heard
If you only had $6.50 left in the world what would you do with it?
A blog post with a collection of photos you have taken that you have never shown anyone before
A dance number would be nice… perhaps you could do your own version of the Butter Dance ;D
Or as per the group conversation the other week… is your age divided by 2 plus 7 the optimum maximum age difference for a couple or is there more to it than that?
Are you worried about receding hair lines? 😛
Do you have hobbit feet? (since I’m thinking about hair now.)
I’ll stop there before it gets weird.
I can’t believe I didn’t know that you had made the move back to just undies….Wow, things change when one leaves the country for 5 years. How did you make that decision?
Who is your favourite Bible character? Why?
And please write a made up story.
I think Sebas would second the belly button picture. He is really into them at the moment.
If you hadn’t become a youth minister, what would your life have looked like?: My life as a struggling/average/famous movie director.
This is such a dopey question but I just can’t seem to work out an answer and i have now been thinking about it for 3 or 4 minutes. So I would like you to answer it. If a family of another religion came to stay with you for a couple of months would it be ok, to Jesus who you want to be Lord of the house, that they did their prayers in their bedroom each day.
