Stripped Down Naked to Honor Web Designers and Developers

In honor of April 9, 2008, as CSS Naked Day, my blog is going naked. I discussed this a few days ago with details on how to strip naked your blog if you would like to join in the celebrations. By going naked, my blog stands with thousands of others who recognize and honor the […]

Blog Challenge: Whatcha Reading?

I recently finished rereading all the books, one after another, by two of my favorite authors, Alan Dean Foster and Terry Pratchett. I read the whole Discworld series in order, then the Humanx Commonwealth by Foster in “chronological” order. It was wonderful to submerse myself in other worlds for extended periods of time, putting off […]

Blog Challenge: Testing Your Blog’s Accessibility

I’ve talked a lot over the years about how important it is to design your website or blog to be accessible. There is a growing number of bloggers and blog readers who are reading your blog right now with a screen reader which reads your blog to them, or some other magnification or screen customization […]

Blog Challenge: Blog About Being Small

Last week, I challenged you to blog about being “big” or a success, giving you the challenge to blog about a moment when you felt “big” or write about what it would look like if you were “big” or a success. This week, I want you to think “small” – when you weren’t a success. […]

Blog Challenge: Write a Travel Post

I travel pretty much full-time, living on the road, sleeping in motor homes, trailers, tents, hotels, and other odd places. I started traveling extensively when I was a teenager, turning it into a full-time life in 1996. I have lots of travel stories I share on Taking Your Camera on the Road, and this week, […]

Blog Challenge: Intelligent Online Toys and Play Things

I recently found the The Perception Laboratory’s Face Transformer, a site that allow you to “mess up your face”, or at least a photograph. There are lot of fun things to do on the web besides just playing traditional games and shoot ‘em up games. This week’s blog challenge is: Blog a listing of your […]

Blog Challenge: World Records Bloggers Could Break

In 2005, I wrote Guinness World Book of Records and Other Blog Score Cards, challenging bloggers to come up with their own set of “World Records” that bloggers could break. The record books are still open, so this week’s blog challenge is: Create a List of World Records Bloggers Could Break Write a blog post […]

Blog Challenge: Write a Political Post

This week’s blog challenge is: Write a political blog post. Studs Terkel recently referred to the United States as having “National Alzheimer’s Disease”, forgetting their past so they can not only repeat their mistakes, but regressing back to the childhood stages, losing all the benefits of its amazing “growth”, both as a society and government. […]

Accepting a Blog Challenge Because…

I’ve been very blessed with the responses to my Blog Challenges, and frustrated with the responses of a few. For the few, I will clarify: Accepting one of Lorelle’s blog challenges is free-of-charge. There are no strings attached. You accept the challenge of your own free will. There are no financial or material rewards to […]

Blog Challenge: Shopping Experiences

The friend I’m staying with in Israel is a master shopper. She looks like a high fashion, classic model and everyone asks where she got her clothes and how much did she pay. She explains, proudly, that this lovely unique geometrically designed top that graces her tall slender frame cost only 10 shekels (about USD […]

Blog Challenge: Write a Memoir of a Moment

A few weeks ago, I asked you to blog a biography. This week’s blog challenge is: Blog your memoir. A memoir is an auto-biography. It can be about your whole life, and your perspective of your life lived, or it can be just a story from your past, a moment about your life shared publicly. […]

Blog Challenge: Teach a Blogging Technique

This week, your blog challenge is to become a teacher. Specifically, a teacher who teaches about blogging. There is a lot more to blogging than rattling on about blog content, copyright theft, comment spam, and WordPress, though I know I tend to do a lot of that lately. So it’s up to you to tackle […]

Blog Challenge: Write A Biographical Post

We all know people who have changed our lives. Some we know well and intimately, like good friends and family. Others, we know only through their existence on the planet, fame, fortune, or infamy. Yet, their lives influenced our thoughts, decisions, and feelings about ourselves and the world around us. Writing a biography is different […]

Blog Challenge: Blog About Something You Know Nothing About

While this might be easy for some, it will be a real challenge for others. Your blog challenge this week is: To blog about something you know nothing about.
