Your blog just became a viral sensation. What’s the one post you’d like new readers to see and remember you by? Write that post.
Take a subject you’re familiar with and imagine it as three photos in a sequence. Tackle the subject by describing those three shots.
A picture is worth a thousand words, therefore three photos equals three thousand words. Would my readers rather have three photos or three thousand words? I think you know the answer to that one.

This is my last-ever post because the WordPress Prompters have finally caught up with me.
Before they skewer me to their suggestions board with my own biting wit, I beg you to re-read my many posts, discover my genius and share them all, sending me viral and making me a global sensation, so I can at least replace the lamp [see first prompt response at top of page] with the money I make.
Start with Joke 245 – last year’s Thanksgiving cartoons.
Argghh! They’re coming… I loved you all, dear readers; especially the ones who sent me gifts…
