If we don't come up with a great blog topic, our stats are going to plummet. Our reputation will be ruined. Life as we know it will cease to exist. THINK, dag blammit!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel as if I need to post something, but either:

1. nothing snappy comes to mind.

2. something snappy comes to mind, but I already wrote an awesomelishish post about it and double-dipping just isn’t how I roll.

3. something snappy comes to mind but it’s come to a whole lot of other minds, too.

So I get stuck.

Getting stuck is no fun for anyone.

Well, I found a website with 81 different ideas for blog topics. Click here if you want to see the site, but I’m going to share the inspirational ideas that came to me after scanning the list.

I gave their topics some thought and here’s what I came up with. I’ll be selective–81 is a lot of topics to mess around with.

1. Health & Fitness for Busy People. Stop sitting down to read blogs and go do something physical not involving a vigorous walk to get fast food.

Super-size that order, please. We have to walk all the way back.

2. Language Learning Blogs. Start with your native language and make sure you’ve mastered that one. It’s harder than you think.

Triple oops.

I feel a power outage coming on.

3. How to Travel on a Budget. Sounds uncomfortable. Traveling on a plane or a cruise ship sounds much nicer.

4. Ghost Hunting. Only if the ghosts are released after they are captured. You wouldn’t want to scare them, would you?

5. The Vegan Diet. No. Don’t. Readers will cancel their subscriptions to your blog. Why? They already know giving up meat and dairy is better for them, but they don’t want to be reminded.

6. How to Become Famous. I wouldn’t try this unless you’re already famous and, if you are, you’re probably not spending your precious fame-time writing a blog.

Ha! That's funny. I've got to remember to put that on my blog. NOT!

7. Becoming a Wine or Beer Connoisseur. I bet this would be a popular blog topic. I’m assuming it involves drinking lots of wine or beer, a favorite past-time among a majority of people who aren’t Amish,  babies, and convicted felons in solitary confinement. None of these types are likely to be blogging anyway. (Although its interesting to think that these three groups have at least one thing in common, isn’t it?)

8. Building a Boat and Crossing the Pacific Ocean in it. Good luck with that. Take plenty of pictures with a water-proof camera for the rescue team. It helps in identifying your remains (if there are any and if anyone finds what’s left of you).

She's hale and hardy. I built her myself and I call her "Half-Baked Alaska" 'cause that's where I'm headed.

9. How to be a Real and True Friend. This assumes you need instruction on discerning real people from imaginary friends. If you do, you need more help than a blog.

10. How to Train for a Triathlon. The possibilities are almost endless. There’s the Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner Triathlon, the Bowling/Billiards/Darts Triathlon, the Sleeping/Snacking/Napping Triathlon, the TV/Blogging/Reading Triathlon, the Laundry/Dishes/Dusting Triathlon, the Walking/Resting/Walking Back Triathlon…Each have different rules and training schedules.

What are you looking at? We're training for a triathlon. 12 more minutes to go, then we have to walk back.

All of these were ideas on the website I referred to above. If you want more ideas than the ten I listed, just go to that site. Maybe something on there will inspire you like it did me.

Happy blogging, my friends!
