Writer’s Block

I can’t think of anything to really write about today. I did a Song of the Week already, and This Army Life yesterday. I was working on another blog, but it just made me sound like an asshole, so I decided to delete it all and start over. I could blog about Her, but I am sure the four people that actually read this thing don’t want to hear anymore about her until something actually happens. We’ll have to wait on that then. So…hmm…what to do…I know! Google.

Type in “I need a blog topic.” Maybe the magic of the internet will say “Here is your topic, Mr. Robert Eberhard. Write a few hundred words about this.” Nope. Doesn’t appear to work that way. Wait a second…the fifth one down: “100 Blog Topics I Hope YOU Write.” I can be YOU. Let’s check it out…nope. Nothing that I know anything about or have time to think about. Good list though. May be useful in my future career, but not really right now at all.

Okay, new Google search: “good blog topics.” Here’s some sound advice: internet search engines. That’s what I did, you freakin’ jerk! Why can’t you simply give me a topic? Google is stupid sometimes. Wait a second though…I think I hit blogging gold. How about “give me a blog topic“? First couple links are to the same “100 Blog Topics” blog, but the third one looks good…”55 More Blog Posts I Hope You Write.” Success! Thank you Darren Barefoot!

A quick answer for each of the suggested topics though:
