Coming soon to a blog near you... The Question

The end of '5 on the fifth' meant that I am no longer part of a wider regular blogging community. Therefore, I propose a new monthly posting called 'The Question'.
I will post one single question (probably suggested by one of you) and if you want to take part, you can post your answer on your own blog. You can add your link to my page and therefore, I hope that responses will then be compared and spark some conversation, debate and shared experiences.

You could call it a limited meme, but I hope it will be more than that. Some questions may be simple, some indepth, some innocent, some reaching, some lighthearted. For example, the first question could have been Do you have any New Years resolutions and if you wont be making any, why not?

Please suggest a question for the first posting later this month by adding a comment. I am really looking forward to hearing your ideas. I thought I would run this for a couple of months and get your feedback.


  1. I do hope your idea catches on, Stephen.

    Here is my suggestion, which has been refined from the one I originally posted above.

    "If you could live in one place on earth for the next two years with all expenses paid, but with no travelling out of the area allowed, where would you choose?"

  2. How about -

    "If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?"

    "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

    "Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best?"

    "What’s the best/worst gift you’ve ever given/received?"

  3. We all know that time travelling stories always warn against altering history, but we all know that is some small way they have because otherwise the story telling is boring.

    Therefore the question is, "You get to make one tiny change to history, what event do you choose to change or prevent from happening? And what might be the outcome?"

  4. When did you last lie and why?

    If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

    What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?

  5. Hello

    I love your blog.
    You should add it in the new gay bloggers' platform.

    What I like is that you can meet other gay bloggers with similar interests,
    and get many tools and tips for having more impact to your blog.
    I just add my blog.
    That 's why I give you the tip.
