I find that I’m more successful in keeping my resolutions if I keep them secret for the year. Here’s the list I made last year. Honest.
Get named on some fancy schmancy list of big shots
Start an anonymous blog
Take Friday’s off
Join 42,674 social networks. (I fell short on this one, but I gave it my best effort)
Get a massive infection in my leg.
Go to Vegas without gambling a dime
Talk like a pirate
Create a widget.
Introduce you to my messed up family
Make Teresa Boardman laugh, then make her cry
Learn to be a better listener
Improve my skills at being a smart ass.
Become popular by throwing a party with free tacos
Travel 900 miles to sign a poster.
Drink beer on Zillow’s dime, then drink beer on Trulia’s dime.
Meet Odis Jack Gillard
Use the term, “disintermediation” in a blog post
That’s it. Wait until you see what I’ve thought up for 2008!
I can’t imagine doing a weekly blogging contest myself, and really don’t want to wait my turn at the carnival. So I’m creating a contest of my own. The first annual Funniest RE.net blog post for 2007. Here are the rules.
- The post has to be from an RE.net blogger.
- The post has to be funny
Nominations are now open. I will will pick a short list (bribes will be excepted), and a three judge panel will elect a winner. Anybody want to be a judge? Nomination deadline is 12:01 AM Mountain Time on Dec 27th. The winner will be announced at 12:01 AM on Jan 1, and wins nothing!
Here are a few that I have nominated so far.
The honer is all mine! – Kris Berg
Ten Marketing Tips You Can Learn From A Prostitute – Joe & Rudy (I’m not sure which)
Fixing The Agent Headshot Of Death – Athol Kay
Mademoiselle? Oui. La Spinster?…ZUT! – Geno Petro
Please don’t judge me by my page rank – Teresa Boardman
Top 5 Reasons Why You Wouldn’t Hire a Penguin as Your Next Realtor® – Mariana Wagner
Collegiate Cliques on RE.net – Yes, I nominated my own post. It was damn funny.
The Bubble Gum Interviews – Lani Anglin – I nominate the whole series. Sort of like a lifetime achievement award or something.
Nominate your own posts, or the posts of others in the comments section. There’s no limit on the number of posts from any one blogger that can be nominated. Email me if you want to me a judge. Finally, please spread the word about the contest. I could use a good laugh, so the more posts to choose from the better.
