Change it back......America goes $4 BILLON deeper in dept every day under Obama. Our children and grandchildren will have to pay off this debt as well as their own. This man and his cronies are killing our country.
A few days before their wedding, Alex Voutsinas and Donna Balzano of Boynton Beach, Florida, were looking through old photos to display at their reception. Donna found a Polaroid of her first visit to Walt Disney World, when she was five years old. Alex noticed a man in the background who looked awfully familiar--his own father, pushing a stroller. Who was in the stroller? Alex! It was the couples' first photo together, snapped 15 years before

The world's smallest dolphin - the Maui's - needs our help. A new study has just found that there are only 55 adult dolphins left, making it one of the most critically endangered marine species in the world. It lives exclusively off the coast of New Zealand, a nation which markets itself as "100% Pure" - and yet the government is dragging its feet in protecting the dolphin.
Tell everyone you know: My happiness depends on me, so you're off the hook. And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they're doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel-and then, you'll love them all. Because the only reason you don't love them, is because you're using them as your excuse to not feel good. ~Esther Hicks
OP: Grandpa! About three years ago, my wife’s grandfather died. He was the kindest, most loving individual I have ever known. We named our son after him before he died. He took it as a total honor that his family did that with his name and promised our son that he would always look after him. When my sister sent me this pic, I was convinced it was my arm making the blur, but like I said, the more you zoom in, the clearer it gets. The ghost’s head is a “dead ringer” for my wife’s grandfather.

"It well may be, That we will never meet again, In this lifetime. So let me say before we part, So much of me, Is made of what I learned from you. You'll be with me, Like a handprint on my heart. And now whatever way our stories end, I know you have re-written mine, By being my friend... Like a ship blown from its mooring, By a wind off the sea. Like a seed dropped by a skybird, In a distant wood. But because I knew you, I have
Fall in Love
Cracking Wing (Sutateish, also Cetaghe), Mandan youth. Cracking Wing arrived in Hampton on Oct. 25, 1881 and DIED there in 1884. When researching this photograph I nearly overlooked the fact that this young man died at Hampton Institute. When I realised that fact I had to get up and walk away from my computer, after 10 minutes of mixed emotions I went back to my computer and turned it off. I was very effected by this revelation.

I was feeling frisky and my brother was the only big cock around. It wasn�t hard to seduce him and shortly after him seeing me I was bouncing on his cock enjoying an incest fueled orgasm. Then something in him snapped. He flipped me over and shoved back into me and started thrusting hard before all of the sudden I felt his dick bulge and squirt inside me. I found it a little funny but extremely hot because he knew I was ovulating and still shot off inside me. He knew because I told him when i felt him getting close. And he still pumped me full of his sperm. I swear I can feel them trying to fuck their way into my egg.
Spending hours on the phone last night, you brought back to me what love should be like... Listening to you talk and laugh, playful conversations between us as love manifests itself right before us again!! Our love is something that can't be denied. We can keep putting it off but it is still going to return.. Funny thing about soulmates.. We are meant to be together. its going to happen. We were created for each other!!
oa2: I was cross-legged and leaning against a bookshelf in Borders surrounded by my selection of books. I see his feet before I look up to see him smiling at me. He sits down, thumbs through his own books until he’s reaching for mine to tilt it out of my view and to his own. He read it, let out this little laugh, and shifted it back to me. 7 and a half years later we finally end much like we began. I hope you’re well in your world with out

Good girl, now when I ask you a question I expect an answer, and if you fucking move you won�t cum at all, I told her as I moved off of her back and positioned myself in front of her.I looked right into her eyes as I trailed my thumb along her lips, �Suck my cock, slut.� I demanded as I pressed the head of my cock passed her lips. I felt her suck me deep into her mouth, and I felt the head of my cock hit the back of her throat. She gagged slightly, and then I felt myself slip down her throat, her tongue pressed along the underside of my cock as her nose pressed into my pubes. �Good, girl.� I grabbed two fistfuls of her hair, and slowly withdrew my cock from her mouth. I climbed to the edge of the bed, dragging her with me and rolling her onto her back. Her head dangled off the side of the bed. �Open wide,� I said and she responded to my command. I slowly pressed my cock into her mouth, and I slipped easily into her throat this time as the angle allowed for great access. I began to slowly fuck her throat watching inch-by-inch of my cock penetrate her mouth. Every time I felt the ring of her throat wrap around the head of my cock I could see her throat expanding to accommodate my width. I wrapped my hand around her throat, and I felt even greater pressure on my cock. I rolled my head back and moaned out loud, and I felt my balls resting on her face. �You are such a little cock slut. Now get back on your stomach so I can fuck the life out of your little pussy,� I said sternly as I withdrew my cock. She hurriedly flipped over onto her stomach and once again raised her hips and spread herself wide open with her hands. �Please, hard again,� she begged. I watched my thick cock slide into her dripping wet creampie pussy. I slowly slid each inch into her feeling her pussy once again stretch to fit me inside her. She bucked backwards to takes the last half of my cock. I slowly withdrew and slammed back into her dripping slit. Our bodies slapped together. I pistoned my cock into her as she moaned like a whore. �Can I please cum now?� She asked obediently. I responded by fucking her pussy harder and faster. I ran my hands up her back and left claw marks on my way back to her ass. I grabbed onto her ass and spread her wide as I continued pumping into her. I put both of my thumbs into my mouth and placed them at her asshole. I began massaging and stretching her tight little ass while my cock slammed her pussy. She moaned loudly and thrust her hips back against me allowing my thumbs to penetrate her ass. �AHHHH-UNFF, I�m cumming, baby,� she gasped as I felt her pussy convulse around my cock and her ass squeeze my thumbs. I slowed my pace so I could feel every muscle in her pussy squeeze my cock. After a minute or so, I began to slowly fuck her pussy again. I focused on the feel of her wetness wrapped around me, the feel of the head of my cock slipping into her, the feel of her heat, the sound of her moans every time I rested deep inside her. My lust began to take over as my orgasm built. �I�m going to cum in your dirty little pussy. You are going to feel my cum leak out of you all day. You will have a pussy full of my cum while you explain to mom and dad what you did last night. My cum is what you will think about when you touch yourself later.� �Ohhh fuck bro, please, cum inside my slutty little pussy,� she begged and encouraged me. I started fucking her pussy with fast and shallow strokes. I began fucking her faster and faster and as I felt my orgasm start I pumped deep inside her as string after string of my hot cum filled her pussy. My orgasm lasted for minutes as I continued unloading my cum into my sister�s pussy. After my cock stopped twitching inside her pussy, I slowly withdrew from her. �Get on your hands and knees and turn and face me,� I told her. She obeyed me. �Get your ass in the air while you clean me up, I don�t want any of my cum spilling out of you yet.� She began eagerly cleaning our juices off of my cock. I sat back and watched her head bob on my semi erect cock. I felt my cock twitch back to life when she looked u
A Mother’s Prayer for Her Child By Tina Fey “First, Lord: No tattoos. May neither Chinese symbol for truth nor Winnie-the-Pooh holding the FSU logo stain her tender haunches. May she be Beautiful but not Damaged, for it’s the Damage that draws the creepy soccer coach’s eye, not the Beauty. When the Crystal Meth is offered, may she remember the parents who cut her grapes in half And stick with Beer. Guide her, protect her when crossing the street, stepping onto boats, swimming in the ocean, swimming in pools, walking near pools, standing on the subway platform, crossing 86th Street, stepping off of boats, using mall restrooms, getting on and off escalators, driving on country roads while arguing, leaning on large windows, walking in parking lots, riding Ferris wheels, roller-coasters, log flumes, or anything called “Hell Drop,” “Tower of Torture,” or “The Death Spiral Rock ‘N Zero G Roll featuring Aerosmith,” and standing on any kind of balcony ever, anywhere, at any age. Lead her away from Acting but not all the way to Finance. Something where she can make her own hours but still feel intellectually fulfilled and get outside sometimes And not have to wear high heels. What would that be, Lord? Architecture? Midwifery? Golf course design? I’m asking You, because if I knew, I’d be doing it, Youdammit. May she play the Drums to the fiery rhythm of her Own Heart with the sinewy strength of her Own Arms, so she need Not Lie With Drummers. Grant her a Rough Patch from twelve to seventeen.Let her draw horses and be interested in Barbies for much too long, For childhood is short – a Tiger Flower blooming Magenta for one day – And adulthood is long and dry-humping in cars will wait. O Lord, break the Internet forever, that she may be spared the misspelled invective of her peers And the online marketing campaign for Rape Hostel V: Girls Just Wanna Get Stabbed. And when she one day turns on me and calls me a Bitch in front of Hollister, Give me the strength, Lord, to yank her directly into a cab in front of her friends, For I will not have that Shit. I will not have it. And should she choose to be a Mother one day, be my eyes, Lord, that I may see her, lying on a blanket on the floor at 4:50 A.M., all-at-once exhausted, bored, and in love with the little creature whose poop is leaking up its back. “My mother did this for me once,” she will realize as she cleans feces off her baby’s neck. “My mother did this for me.” And the delayed gratitude will wash over her as it does each generation and she will make a Mental Note to call me. And she will forget. But I’ll know, because I peeped it with Your God eyes. Amen.” -Tina Fey

Dave was awoken by the soft grunting noise. He looked over and saw his wife, Sarah. She was wearing that frilly skirt that showed off her lovely legs and a low cut white blouse. She was thrusting herself back and forth against a naked stranger, moaning softly as they fucked.Slowly, the night before came into focus. Dave remembered going out to dinner with his wife. They had met a man, Ryan, or Brian? He was the man who was fucking Sarah as the morning light spilled in to their master bedroom. The last thing Dave remembered was Ryan handing him a drink at the bar.Sarah�s thrusting became more and more forceful and her grunts and moans grew less and less subtle. �Hunnng. Gnnn. Hunnng!� she moaned, desperate for more of the stranger�s big cock.She glanced over at her husband. her focus was held onto his cock, poking away at the bed sheets. She found his eyes and smiled at him, all the while, longingly slamming her creamy pussy back against the stranger.�Ohh!. Ohh fuck! Yes, Brian! Fuck me!� she begged. The stark contrast of watching his shy, unassuming wife turned into a sex-hungry slut made Dave ache. He began stroking his cock as his wife braced herself against the table, which looked to have already taken the brunt of a forceful fucking the night before. Her slut-filled begging turned to incoherent moans as she came and slumped forward. The ecstasy of her orgasm had extinguished her consciousness.Brian took over. He hoisted her from the hips and had his way with her slight, petite body. He pushed and pulled her young little pussy onto his cock, using her like a sex toy.With a loud, deep grunt, Brian held the pretty little Sarah against him. He emptied himself into her. Sarah moaned suddenly as the warm rush of his cum filled her. �Oooh!� she purred at the suddenly familiar, warm sensation.Brian roughly pushed her aside and Sarah slumped against the wall, moaning as the stranger�s cum dripped from her pussy. �I�ll be in the shower,� Brian announced.Dave was still trying to work things out when he felt his wife slip onto the bed and silently wrap her lips around his aching, purple cock. She seemed to coax his hands onto her frazzled head, begging her husband to fuck her mouth as Brian had just fucked her pussy.Dave came quickly, flooding her mouth a Brian had her cunt. Her husband�s cum dribbled down her chin as the stranger�s still oozed down her thigh.�Sorry, honey,� she muttered, kissing him on the cheek. �I�ve got to get to work, so a blowjob will have to hold you over.� She rose from the bed and began fixing her outfit. �Last night was amazing,� she said wiping Brian�s cum from her inner thigh. �I�m sorry you missed all the fun. Once we got back here, you were out like a light.�

Wow,� he gasped as she climbed off his huge cock. He was covered in sweat, his young muscles glistening in the dimly lit hotel room. The thin windows did little to mute the carnivale atmosphere of the college town.She look down at him with a satisfied smile. With her painted hands she reached down and gently rolled the condom off of his cock. Holding it up for inspection, she playfully poked the cum-filled pouch.You got excited there, didn�t you? she teased the younger man.Oh goddamn! he stammered, still trying to catch his breath. I�ve never cum like that in my life! She tied off the condom and threw it in the wastebasket. He watched her glide gracefully across the room. She had an amazing figure. Her body paint was still intact, though a little smeared. Her mask, however, had long since been thrown across the hotel room. He knew she was older, but not how old.Nonetheless, he was amazed that a woman of her age could not only look so damn sexy and get him so horny, but deliver on the raunchiest fuck he�d ever had. She smiled and sighed, guessing at what he was thinking. With an admiring reverence, she huddled over his spent cock. She briefly played with it in her fingers before glancing sideways at him. He shook his head in a mix of fear and disbelief. She chuckled quietly as she took him into her mouth.Oh god�oh�no, god�FUCK! he groaned as her experienced mouth got him hard again. Before he knew it, he was shooting even more cum down her pretty, smiling face.He nearly passed out from the orgasm. As he came around, she was gathering her things, heading back outside. She saw he was waking up and leaned over to kiss him goodbye. He tasted himself on her lips as they shared an intimate moment.She stood up after their kiss. She thought about having another round, but decided the night had already been too perfect. �You don�t remember me, do you?� she asked, standing over him.The puzzled look on his face gave her her answer. She leaned over him again and gave him a polite kiss on the cheek. It�ll come to you, she assured him. Tell your mother I said hello.A few days later, he was talking to his mother on the phone. Oh, do you remember Mrs. Wayne? she asked. �She lives down the street from us, used to babysit you? Completely random, but I ran into her at the store the other day.He braced himself for an awkward conversation with his mother.Anyway, she said to say hello. Apparently her and her husband make it up near your school a lot.Oh,great, he said more than a little relieved. Tell her she should call or drop by, he heard himself say.

Lauren was always a trouble maker. In college, she was never interested in a boy unless one of her friends was into him, or even better, already dating him. She loved turning her friends� boyfriends into cheaters. The chase was always more thrilling for Lauren when she knew her prey was going to be torn between her and his girlfriend.Understandably, Lauren quickly developed a reputation, and lost a lot of friends. One of the few friendships that survived through college was Ashley. Ashley was pretty, quiet and smart. Ashley didn�t have a lot of boyfriends, so Lauren had few targets to go after. Even when Lauren would go after a guy, Ashley would simply take it in stride.Nonetheless, it was surprising when, several years after graduating, Ashley welcomed Lauren into her home. Lauren and Ashley had reconnected through facebook, and Lauren happened to be traveling nearby. Ashley invited her to stay.Lauren was surprised to meet Ashley�s husband, Mike. He was handsome, athletic, muscular, and funny. It didn�t take long before Lauren slipped into her old ways and began fantasizing about stealing away her old friend�s husband.The three of them spent the weekend together, but Lauren didn�t have any of her sales calls scheduled until Tuesday morning. �I�ve got to head to work,� Ashley said as Lauren made her way into the kitchen for breakfast. �Mike is off today, so he can keep you company,� she said without a hint of concern as the door shut behind her.Lauren took Ashley�s confidence and lack of jealousy as a dare. She ate a quick breakfast and then decided to lounge on the sofa, reading a trade magazine. She consciously decided that the nightshirt and long leggings she was wearing were modest enough, even if Mike did happen to walk in on her.After a half hour or so, Lauren began getting frustrated. Mike had yet to rouse from bed, much less catch her scantily clad in his own living room. She was thinking about doing yoga (loudly) to draw him out when she heard his door crackle open. She stayed put on the sofa, innocently reading her magazine.Mike grunted hello and made himself some cereal. He made his way over, eating his cereal from behind the sofa and making small talk. She flirted openly with him, teasing him about his muscles and saying that Ashley was brave to leave him alone.�I imagine you get all sorts of women throwing themselves at you,� she purred.�I do alright,� Mike said with a smile. �But Ashley is more than enough woman for me,� he said, sipping the last of his milk from the bowl.As they chatted, Mike slipped around the sofa and sat beside her. He asked about her work, as a pharma sales rep. She told him all about the male-focused drugs her company made, and how �even healthy guys use them to�bulk up, if you know what I mean,� she said with an obvious glance at the healthy bulge in Mike�s lap.�I wouldn�t know,� he said confidently. �I�ve never needed any help.��Really?� Lauren asked incredulously, leaning closer to her friend�s husband. �Not even with Ashley? After all these years of marriage?� Each word brought her closer to his warm, firm body.�Especially not with Ashley,� he said confidently. He was smirking, as if he knew the game she was playing. He didn�t tell her to stop, which she took as permission to continue.�Really?� Lauren said, and in a swift move she straddled Mike�s legs, pressing her warm, naked pussy against his bulge. �Maybe I should check, just to be sure everything is working,� she cooed. She deftly reached behind her, pulling Mike�s hardening cock out of his briefs.�Oh, wow,� she blurted. �Ashley is a lucky woman,� she mumbled as she forced her lips onto Mike�s. She could feel his hands helping to free his cock from the underwear. She kissed him, pinning him down while his hands roamed her tight, naked ass. Her hand reached back, stroking his cock hard. She quickly impaled herself on his cock before he could come to his senses or try to stop her. Lauren didn�t often need to trick her prey, almost all of the men she lured away from another woman came willingly. She knew, thought, that once he h

While there's no right or wrong way to blog, great content is the key to blogging success. But share-worthy content isn't always easy to come up with or create, is it? Today I'm coming to the rescue with 50 blog post ideas that you can use to provide your readers with quality content and keep them coming back for more. 1. Share a behind-the-scenes look of your blog or business. Everyone loves getting sneak peeks of what your office looks like, photos of things "in the works," and looks at rough drafts. Michaela Noelle did this on her blog last week and it was a great success! It also adds a little personality to your blog and allows your readers to connect with you. 2. Write a blog series on your process. I did this with my creative process last month and it was a huge hit. Readers love to find out how you do what you do, so highlight each step of a project in a blog series and walk them through your process. This is helpful for readers who are in a similar field and for potential clients and customers. 3. Roundup helpful posts and link to other bloggers. Readers also like finding out which blogs you follow along with and what posts you find interesting, so link to other bloggers and share articles and posts that might be helpful for your audience. (This is also a great way to connect and network with other bloggers. I can see which bloggers refer to me in my analytics and I almost always reach out to them!) Jenny Purr does a great job with link-ups. 4. Write a post on how you got started. We all love a good success story. Share your experience and tell your readers how you got here. Plus, it's fun to document your journey and remember where you started. And on that note... 5. Share tips on how to become successful in your industry. Which resources and advice have helped you get to where you are? Don't keep all of those tips to yourself - share the love with your readers! 6. Feature a professional in your field. This could take the form of reaching out to someone for a Q&A on your blog (like this Coffee Date with Molly Jaques) or just highlighting someone in your industry that you admire. This is also a great networking opportunity. 7. Host a giveaway. Readers love getting free things, whether it's content, entertainment, or goodies. Create excitement around your blog and reward your readers for following along with you by hosting a giveaway! Giveaways are also great marketing tools for your blog. 8. Write a polarizing post about something you may not agree with in your field. While it's easy for all of us to go along with the crowd and do what's popular, there may be some things in your industry that you want to do differently. Write about it! (Please note that I'm not promoting negativity, complaining, ranting, or bashing - there's a way to go about this tastefully and respectfully.) Here are some great polarizing posts: Time for Change, 3 things I'm no longer doing for my website, One Word That May Be Hindering Your Business 9. Make a list of things you wish you had known when ... Hindsight is 20/20 and we all have the opportunity to learn from others' mistakes. Share a handful of things you wish you had known when you first started blogging, writing, designing, doing calligraphy, photographing weddings, etc. Need an example? Read this post. 10. Share a day-in-the-life post. We all like to see how successful people go about their day. Write down your day (without going into too much detail) and give your readers an insider look! Breanna Rose does this in her Creative Diaries series, and they are some of my favorite posts. 11. Ask someone to guest post about something specific in your industry. We never have all the answers and it's fun to get advice from other people that are doing great things in your field. It's also fun to highlight talented people and bring attention to their business. You could even look at it as a networking and marketing opportunity and do a trade - ask someone to guest post on your blog in return for guest posting on theirs. 12. Write an informational post about your blogging platform. Readers love learning about how you do what you do. Write a review of your blogging platform, the things you like and don't like, and whether or not you would recommend it. This post about Squarespace has been one of my most popular posts and I continue to get emails and feedback about it! 13. Roundup and highlight the tools you use in your trade. I said it in #12 but it's worth repeating: readers love learning how you do what you do. Make a list of things you use everyday and share it on the blog! Here's my example. 14. Teach your readers about something you're an expert in. We all love to learn from the pros and get insider information. Content like this will be shared over and over again and gain a lot of feedback. 15. Share some takeaways from a recent experience, workshop, or event. Have you attended an event related to your field in the last few months? Share it on the blog and highlight your favorite moments! Your readers will love reading about your experience and the workshop/conference may even share your post, too. 16. Make a list of things people should avoid in your industry. Sometimes it's even more helpful to learn about what not to do. Share some common mistakes that people make and how to avoid them. I was a little leery of sharing my Top 10 Design Mistakes to Avoid, but I was pleasantly surprised by the feedback! 17. Highlight milestones, launches, and important events. It's always good to have a reason for people to get excited about your blog/business. Make a big deal out of changes and events by featuring them on the blog! 18. Explain the meaning behind your blog/business name. Some names are straightforward, but some have a fun story behind them. Turn it into a blog post and share the story behind your blog/business name. (The meaning of the Elle & Company is mentioned in this post.) 19. Feature the people you work with. It's rare that we run a blog or business completely on our own; there are usually people who work for us or with us to help us keep things running, even if it's just by their encouragement. Use your blog to highlight them, promote them, and feature their work. I featured my biggest fan and business partner a few months ago, and it's one of my favorite posts to-date. 20. Make a list of things people may not know about your trade. There's always information out there that people are surprised to hear. For example, non-designers may not know that using Comic Sans is one of the biggest no-no's in this industry. Create a list of "did you know" items and share it with your readers. I guarantee it will be a hit. 21. Write a review of a product you use often. If you're a photographer, write about your favorite lenses. If you're a designer, share about your favorite software. If you're an entrepreneur, share the programs you use for project management and accounting. People are always on the lookout for helpful products and tools - share your feedback with them. 22. Repurpose old blog posts with a roundup. Chances are that you've spent hours on blog posts that are now buried in your archives. Share them again by doing a roundup! A Beautiful Mess does this at the end of every month to highlight their posts and I did this recently with my Weekly Truth backgrounds. Don't let those great posts go to waste. 23. Repurpose an old blog post with a follow-up. Can you add onto something you've already done? Write a sequel or a "part 2" to an old blog post and make use out of that content again. 24. Repurpose an old blog post with a revision. Do you have a post that you wrote a couple years ago that could be revamped or reused? Make some revisions and post it again! 25. Share about how you use a certain social media outlet for your blog/business. There are so many social media outlets out there and everyone uses them a little differently. Share about one of your favorites and give your readers tips on how you use it for your blog/business. Here are some examples of posts I've done on Instagram and Pinterest. 26. Turn an FAQ or inquiry into a blog post. Is there a common question that readers ask you by email or in your post comments? Turn it into a blog post! An email from an Elle & Company reader regarding content actually inspired this blog post. If it's something that multiple readers have asked you about, chances are their are more people who would love to know more about it, too. 27. Tell an interesting story. We all love a good tale and we all enjoy being entertained. Do you have a "you're not going to believe this" story? Share it on your blog! 28. Write an informative post on how people can work best with you. Are you a calligrapher, photographer, or wedding planner? Share some tips for brides on how to make the process as simple as possible. Are you an interior designer? Share some insights on how clients and designers can maintain a great working relationship. This is helpful for current and future clients and it's also helpful for those in your field who are just getting started. 29. Create and share a free resource. We all love free things. That's why we follow along with blogs in the first place! Find creative ways to share free resources with your audience. I do this with my Weekly Truth series and it's been a hit (especially on Pinterest!) 30. Find a creative way to link up with other bloggers/business owners. There are several ways you can go about this one. You could create a writing challenge like Bailey did with her Blogtember series, start a fun linkup like What I Wore Wednesday, or partner with another blog friend like Michaela and I did for the Home Suite Home project. The possibilities are endless, so get creative and come up with something distinctly you! 31. Create a blog series on a project. People love following along with step-by-step transformations (that's why Young House Love was my favorite blog for so many years!). Are you working on a project for a client, remodeling your home, or training for a marathon? Share about it on the blog and show sneak peeks of the transformation as you go. 32. Highlight one of your products or services. This is your blog; use it to your advantage! Come up with creative ways to highlight your business and your products. This could take the shape of a "how-to" post or you could pose them as a solution to a particular problem. 33. Create an infographic. Not only are graphics and photos more interesting and entertaining, they're sharable. Even if you aren't able to draw one yourself, compile information on a topic in your field and come up with a creative way to display it. I did this with the feedback I received from a reader survey this past summer and the infographic was a hit! Which perfectly transitions into my next idea... 34. Take a reader survey and come up with a unique way to share the results. Not only is this feedback helpful for you, but readers like to see who else is following along with you. A Beautiful Mess and Young House Love always do this well. 35. Share your mission statement and blog/business strategy. Write a post on what's at the heart of your blog or business. Why do you do what you do? What motivates you? 36. Define or share your take on your industry. For example, many people use the term "branding" but designers approach that subject differently depending on who you talk to. I wrote a post on branding after I officially launched my design services this past summer to approach the subject in my own terms. Do you have your own take on your field? Share it on your blog! 37. Find a creative way to share tidbits of your life lately. There are a million and ten ways you could approach this, so come up with something original! Some of my favorite examples include Awkward and Awesome and Clara Conversations. 38. Create a "through the years" or flashback post. Is there a tradition or event that you participate in year after year? Your readers would probably love to see it on your blog. An example? This post by Justin and Mary on their past Halloween costumes. 39. Give away some secrets of your trade. Many people shy away from sharing the information that has made them successful for fear that it could create competition, but it's had the opposite effect in my experience. Share what you know! If you do what you do well, you'll have nothing to worry about. Readers will love gaining your great insight and information. 40. Teach people how to make something unique. We all have a DIY board on Pinterest, don't we? There's something in each one of us that loves learning how to make something that we wouldn't have thought to make before. 41. Write about some common misconceptions in your industry. Are there things that people assume about your business or trade that aren't accurate? Address them in a blog post! 42. Ask your readers for feedback. Do you have a question or dilemma? Let your readers participate by sharing it on the blog. Michaela did this with her readers in our Home Suite Home project when she asked them to vote on which design concepts they liked best. 43. Share your sources of inspiration. We see this all over the place on blogs, but think of your own creative way to make an inspiration post distinctly your own. I do this on my blog a couple time each month in Today's Top 3. 44. Solve a problem. Is there a particular issue that keeps coming up in your industry time and again? Provide a solution to it! Some examples? Braid Creative wrote a post on organizational tools for creative entrepreneurs and Ashley wrote a post for photographers on organizing their email inbox. 45. Write a post on the best (or worst!) advice you've ever received. This could be both helpful and hilarious for your audience. 46. Highlight the best (or worst!) moments since starting your blog/business. Again, this could be both helpful and hilarious for your audience. 47. Share your recent projects. Blogging is a great marketing tool. Use it to your advantage and highlight your latest work! Not only is it fun for your readers to follow along with, but you never know if potential customers are following along with you. Think of it as free advertising for your portfolio. 48. Share a testimonial or success story. It could be about your experience with another professional or a clients' experience with you. Word of mouth is the best advertisement. 49. Surprise your readers with something unexpected. Do you have a hidden talent or trait that your readers might not know about? Find a way to highlight it on your blog! I did this in my "That's a Rap" post and although it was totally random, it gave my readers a glimpse of my personality outside of blogging and designing. 50. Create a long list of something specific to your trade/blog/industry/field. Case in point. That's a wrap! Which ideas are you most excited to try? Do you have any suggestions for no-fluff, content-rich blog posts that I may not have mentioned?
