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 🙂

"Life is always beautiful and exciting, giving us opportunities and lessons at every step we take. Failures and victories are nothing but two sides of the same coin. In order to be successful, we need to take charge of our lives and learn to treat every moment as a challenge and a blessing."

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.
