Got a Post Idea?

Through the years, a few up-and-coming young writers have contributed their own post ideas to Andi’s Blog. For example, many of the character quizzes I have recycled (and updated) came from Sadie S., who years ago asked, “Mrs. M., I would love to think up some character quizzes. May I?” Absolutely! Ellen S. contributed at least two dozen “Andi’s Journal” posts, some seven parts long! Another young writer had an idea for a history post and I published that as a blog post.

Do you see where this is going? Andi’s blog is our blog–yours and mine. If you have an idea for a blog post, I would love to hear it. You can contribute to the content in many ways. Here are ideas.

  1. An “Andi and Melinda” Favorites post. Here’s the list of ideas you all came up with in September. You could also volunteer to do a least-favorite post. Just send the bare bones and I will do the rest (but I will give you credit).
    • favorite (least-favorite) trips
    • favorite (least-favorite) meals
    • favorite (least favorite) chores
    • favorite activity with brothers
    • favorite season
    • favorite Christmas memory
    • favorite (least favorite) ranch animal
    • favorite (or worst) childhood memory
    • favorite (least favorite) Bible character
    • favorite (least favorite) hairstyle
    • favorite song
    • favorite bedtime story
    • best (worst) lesson learned
    • favorite (least favorite) ranch hand
    • favorite niece or nephew
    • favorite prank (this one has been spoken for)
    • favorite adventure
    • favorite (least favorite) memory of Aunt Rebecca
  2. A history post about anything of interest during the setting of the Circle C books
  3. A character quiz for a minor (or major) character. (Think of one. I will let you know if I have questions from an earlier quiz on that character.)
  4. A Riley’s Ramblings post about something that happened during the “in between years,” before he showed back up on the Circle C in The Last Ride. Or a courtship post the year between the last two chapters of Courageous Love.
  5. An original idea I haven’t thought of!
How to Submit and Suggest

  2. I think doing a character quiz about a minor character would be fun. You would really need to read the books to get the answers!!

      1. Hmmm….maybe a Mr. Foster quiz? Or Jeffery, Melinda’s boyfriend? Or even a bad guy, like Jed or that creepy Chinese cook in San Francisco Smugglers…those character quizzes would be fun to createβ˜ΊπŸ˜€

  3. Sounds cool! I have a few questions for you:
    1. Does Macy Walker have an uncle? I looked in Thick as Thieves and there is no mention of him.
    2. Is Aunt Hester rich or poor?
    3. How long was Macy’s brother’s jail sentence, and why weren’t they hanged for horse thieving?

    And BTW, if you wanted to, you could also do poetry contests or art, maybe? Just an idea if you wanted contests other than writing!

  4. Okay thanks! What was Macy’s uncle’s name? And I’m clueless about the prison time. Five years? Ten? Or more?
    And when it says they have a farm, what kind of animals would they have? Pigs? Sheep?
    Thanks so much for your time! I really appreciate it!

    1. The original “Tales from Memory Creek Ranch” says that Duke was bitten and killed by a rattlesnake. The new book has the same story but doesn’t specify the dog killed. Hope that helps!

  6. Hello. πŸ™‚ I decided to make a Rosa GarduΓ±o character quiz. I have 17 questions and a bonus question. Rosa is mainly only in one book, so it’s hard to find questions. Is 17 questions okay?

      1. And I hate to tell you this, but I already have a Rosa Garduno quiz. I think you were supposed to check with me to see which ones I had before creating one. *oops* However, email me what you have and your questions might be better than mine from a few years ago.
