Every week I sit down and think about what I am going to blog about next. I try to think of something funny or interesting that happened over the past week and…nothing.
This week, in search of something, I stumbled upon some pretty weird things. I found a lizard that looked like Spiderman, the drawing of an ancient squid using its own 150 million-year-old ink, and a plant in the Philippines that eats rats!
It must be pretty difficult to come up with things to blog about on a regular basis. I wonder how it is that most bloggers go about finding new content. Everyone is guilty of perusing and wasting time in cyberspace. Websites like StumbleUpon or Delicious provide people with hours of entertainment searching through blogs and websites that focus on out of the ordinary and frivolous things.
These sites, and others like them, must generate a lot of inspiration within the online community. Even if they simply encourage you to share a a strange happening of your own. If you Google it, I’m sure you could find that you are not alone.
For instance, while walking through a field on campus the other day, I stepped on a baby rabbit. It screamed and scampered off into the distance. I was flabbergasted. How on earth does a baby bunny and a human foot collide?
Curious about the well-being of the bunny and my own fortune, I did in fact Google “stepping on a baby bunny.” The results did not yield anything very interesting besides one forum that determined it does in fact kill the bunny. How bizarre? I just hope it doesn’t bring me seven years bad luck or something to that effect.
