Post #225 will be here before you know it. I try to have the posts that are multiples of 25 be something extra special. #100 showed pictures. #150 was the alphabet game. #175... I forget. #200 was, of course, the interview with Deb Smith.
#225 will consist entirely of song titles. There will be a theme, and more on that in a moment. But every sentence of the post will be a song title from a tune from the present, or quite some time in the past.
This is where you come in.
I have picked up plenty of readers in the last 6 0r 8 weeks, mostly people googling "Karen Begin" or some variation and finding my posts on her. I would like to keep as many of them as possible and one way of doing that is to involve my readers in my columns a bit more.
I want as many of you as possible to reply to this post, #214, and suggest a theme or a subject for post #225. I will sift through the inevitable large list and select one of them as the subject of the post. Haven't quite figured out how long the post will be. Several paragraphs at least.
Submit a reply to this suggesting a topic for #225. If I select yours, I'll send you something neat from my vast collection of stuff . Could be a rare book, or a cd I am tired of, or a dvd I no longer wish to keep. Whatever. And I will mail this to you anywhere in the world, free.
Deadly serious about this. Want lots of participation.
Get to work.
