blog post ideas

Imagine this post as an adorable little alien jumping up and down waving frantically and shouting “hey, I’m here to help you! I come in peace! No, ET doesn’t want to phone home right now, maybe once you’ve read me!”. What does ET want you to read? A list of post ideas that I’ve thought up! And why have I thought them up and written them down for you, not myself?

Maybe it’s because I love you. Maybe it’s because I already have a notebook full of unwritten blog post ideas that I’m obviously not going to get to any time soon. Let’s say it’s the first one. Oh, shut it, we all know the truth  and what truth is that?  That listening to Florence and The Machine has made happy, so you want to share. The nursery lessons have finally kicked in.  Between Two Lungs is such a good song, though, let’s be honest.  See?

No, but seriously – how many times have you bloggers looked at your dashboard, started to think about what to post and ended up like

(although – if you’re anything like me – you won’t look as adorable while you’re doing it. But, hey, we all need something to aspire to.)
