It's time for the Blogaphor!!!

It's day 16 of the post-a-day competition and many bloggers are feeling the pressure to keep the creativity and energy up. So, here to exercise that noodle is the Blogaphor.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


Post as a comment or take the fun to your own blog. The mission: come up with clever blogaphors for your reader's amusement. A blogaphor is much like a metaphor, except it's tailored specifically for blogs.

met·a·phor (mt-fôr, -fr) n.
A figure of speech in which a word or phrase that ordinarily designates one thing is used to designate another, thus making an implicit comparison, as in “a sea of troubles” or “All the world's a stage” (Shakespeare).

One thing conceived as representing another; a symbol: “Hollywood has always been an irresistible, prefabricated metaphor for the crass, the materialistic, the shallow, and the craven” (Neal Gabler).

Be funny. Be serious. Be silly. Be dramatic... It doesn't matter, BUT, be clever and remember, it must focus or refer to blogging in some way.

I can't really pick my most favorite humor blog because they all made me laugh like the mad scientist who thinks he's won and has just thrown his head back and chortled like a hormonal PMS-suffering, chocolate-addicted woman who just landed in a vat of hershey's milk chocolate!!!

His blog offered a mirage of images, much like the images that are supposed to pass before your eyes when you are about to die, but then you don’t.

That blog is exciting, it’s like when you are digging in your car for loose change and instead of finding a quarter, you find a whole dollar.

Oh man! I can't even think of a bloggone blogophor.

Ha! HAAAH! I did it! :) Bloggone! Doggone! So lame, I know!

I like this idea!! I've made a couple notes this morning for my post tomorrow (mainly about how so many of the nablopo participants are counting the day)... I'm sure I can add a blogphor or two to that part of the post.

Something to muse about today. Thanks.
