101 Things to do with a Brick

This is my first blog post on my new site and my first blog for a while since I have been busy writing software for distributors and manufacturers for the last six months.

Blogs posts can be planned , created as a result of hard work and perspiration or can simply be inspired . This blog is the latter.

I am inspired by two recent happenings , being invited to guest blog on a very sociable blogging network and my use of the wonderful software created by Nick Kellet and his team at List.ly .

Many of us like to make lists , to do lists , shopping lists and reminder lists .

Then there are the bloggers who write posts which are essentially lists giving 101 useful Twitter applications , 7 places to source content for your blog .. the lists are endless.

The genius of a list blog is that we are attracted by the use of numbers in a title and we are ever hopeful of finding just one gem in the list that will be extremely useful.

Now I have started a list grandly entitled ‘101 Things to do with a Brick ‘ and it is a list with a difference , at the moment it is incomplete and I have left it so that you can add your own ideas . You will be helping to create this blog post and your ideas will be promoted.

For this is no ordinary blog post , it is an interactive blog and in addition to commenting you can  help build a list

Of course this is not a really useful list , but it is an experiment in blogging .

Please add your uses for a brick in the list by pressing the [Add to List] button below on the right at the top of the list .. looking for some inspired ideas 🙂

When driving along and your enemy comes for you, use the brick to keep the gas pedal down allowing you to leap from your vehicle to safety.
