Every Tuesday for the last eternity give or take a millennium, Bossy has been featuring a little thing she likes to call Asking For Comments In Ten Words. The archive for this feature is here, where archive equals the posts are in descending chronological order but who would know because you have to read through each post to reach the previous post button and christ on the cross who has the patience?
Which is a shame because the Ten-Word Tuesday comments are the best on the web — a study in creativity, each week proving the adage less is more.
So today Bossy thought it would be fun to ask her readers what kind of topics they’d like to see appear in Ten-Word Tuesday format. Bossy can sum up the reason she’s asking this way:
So here’s the challenge: in exactly ten words, can you recommend a
Ten-Word Tuesday topic to Bossy? If she uses it in an upcoming post she’ll be sure to give you credit.
And please check back later today for the best suggestions on the web.
