You know -- that's a brilliant idea.

It's definitely better than my application. I shall not lie -- I actually don't have a list of the SSTFWPAOWLYWO. I could probably come up with a few tips if I thought hard enough, but I think that would be a waste of [strike]my[/strike] your time.

Do we write examples now, or are you going to give us some sort of prompt?

I'm waiting on Andy to get back to me on it. I don't want to say yes to the idea until he says yes too. We work 100% together on things. If we don't agree, then it doesn't happen.

Okay!

This is what you have to do:
Each of you who is interested in doing the job needs to write a short, example post and put it here in this thread. Choose the category that you want to write in that would require the most thought. Meaning, if you want tips and websites, write a tips post, not a websites post. We want to see your very best.
When I say short I mean a couple hundred words (say 250). It should be a relatively complete idea. We expect that you'll write longer posts, possibly, for the actual blog.

Everything clear? This will help us decide. EVERYONE has to do this, even the person we have technically already picked. Why? Because it's not fair for only person to not have to do any work and everyone else to .

So get started!
