It's been a really fun week participating in Darren Rowse's Problogger Group Writing Project. He says that 893 posts (nearly a gazillion!) were entered into the project which amounted to a TON of reading material.
From the plethora of Top 5 posts I had the pleasure to read, there were a few that struck home with me and/or made me giggle.
I share them with you now. Here they are, in no particular order:
1) 5 Superhuman Powers I would like to have by Mjuboy
Okay, now this is serious–after much thought, I’ve decided that if I could have super powers, I would want the ability to manipulate time and space. One of the perks of this power is that if you ever mess up and put your foot in your mouth or make a bad decision, you could turn back time and get an instant “do over”!
2) 5 Cool Things You Can Do With Your DNA by Hsien-Hsien Lei, PhD
When Dr. Lei said that you could "send your DNA into the future by having children" I was like, "Whah? That sounds so space-age--How would you do that?" and then it clicked. Now I get it!
3) Top 5 Reasons Bloggers Make Great Pets by Jason Spence
I have often thought bloggers would make great pets. After all, we're pretty easy to keep tabs on (staying indoors all day working on the computer), we are pack animals (it's all about community!), and much like Golden Retrievers, we'll pretty much do anything to get noticed. :-)
4) Top 5 Reasons to Marry a Geek by Eric Giguere
Again, lots of the reasons why bloggers make great pets are also reasons why Geeks make great husbands. They're easy to keep track of, generous with the link-love and most obviously, it's free IT support for life! That last one in itself is worth it!
5) The Top 5 Strangest Things I've Learned While Blogging by Robert Hruzek
I have to commend Robert for being able to whittle "the strangest things" down to a mere 5! Included in this list is my all-time favorite strange thing--CheddarVision.tv "where you can join over a million others in watching, live and in living color, a cheddar cheese as it ages to perfection." Thank God I found this site before the cheddar was finished aging and got shipped out.
Oh, and in case you have trouble finding needles in haystacks, here was my contribution to this project: Top 5 Hottest Blogger Fantasies
