I’m trying to become a little more user friendly around here and have been thinking of ways to engage the reader more. I’ll also admit that I’m always on the hunt for new followers. What blogger isn’t, right?
Big props to The Muse for helping me come up with coming up with these two ideas. They seem pretty interesting and I’m totally willing to give them a shot. The first idea was something my co-host, Wes the Sports Guy and I used to do on the radio and honestly, I never thought about doing it here. Until she suggested it.
Beginning next Wednesday, I will feature a Douche of the Week on the blog and I need candidates from you. They don’t need to be a public figure–but public figures are totally welcome. They can be someone you know from your everyday life or can be the ass at 7-11 who hit on you at the Slurpee machine. Anyone who has affected or offended you with their douchiness is welcome.
Simply leave a comment or send me a message via the Contact J.R. button at the top of the page. Tell who the person is and why they should be Douche of the Week. On Tuesday morning I will go through the list of submissions and on Wednesday I will crown the Douche of the Week.
The second new feature is Confession Saturday. Send me your anonymous confessions (via comment or Contact J.R.) and I will post the best ones on Saturday morning. If there is anything that does indicate who you are, please rest assured it will go with me to my grave. No one will ever know who you are. The confessions can be anything you want–a guilty pleasure, something you’ve done or something you really, really want to do. I need your confessions by Friday late afternoon in order to guarantee being in Saturday’s post.
We’re getting all interactive up in here and I need your help. Start sending me your Douche of the Week candidates and confessions. I will post the first confessions on Saturday morning and the first Douche of the Week will be crowned next Wednesday.
Please help me out and spread the word about the new features. If there’s anything else you’d like to see, please let me know. I’m going to keep writing what I want, but if there are certain types of posts you’d like to see more (or less) of, let me know. Your honest feedback is important to me.
Send your confessions and your douchebags and Let’s get this party started…
