2010 End Of The Year Wrap Up!

Since starting this blog in 2009 I have added a few features that have taken Morning Erection into directions I never would have thought possible. Once a month I feature poetry in a segment called Poetic License. Bloggers who write poetry have bent over backwards in allowing me to use their works on this site. Poetic License has been well received and it has been beneficial for both me and the poets as we both gain readers. Starting next month Poetic License will be posted on the first Monday of every month.

I’ve been lucky to have people willing to guest post for me. On the first Saturday of every month a different blogger has shared very informative, insightful and pertinent information from their hearts.

Most recently I began conducting interviews. The interviews are informal in a magazine/newspaper style. I have asked a few of the most interesting and creative people I have come across on the Internet to allow me to interview them. The schedule I will be keeping for the interviews is every other month on the 15th.

Here are a few images I was going to use for different posts but I never made the posts so they were left out, or I collected too many photos for a certain post. The first two are Wolf Blitzer doing the Dougie at the BET Awards, then Let Me In poster and premiere night. Also the show that got canceled, Undercovers.


August 28
My most popular post next to the meme was the Most Beautiful Girl In The World and this January I will be posting another post very similar to it. April and I have also spent a lot of time putting together a poll that involves questions for girls/women about their childhood and teen years.

September 22
Chef Ming Tsai did not become the Next Iron Chef and maybe it was due to arrogance but I don’t think so. Even now a month later, I am still very upset. Ce la vie! The winner of the Next Iron Chef was Chef Marc Forgione. Who knew!

November 28
Urban Legends: Believe it or not all three stories are absolutely true, however only the first story about having a gun pointed in my face was true about me. I did not notice the armored car that was getting the money from the store when I ran to grab the tennis ball. The guard just wanted to protect himself and guard the truck, I suppose. It scared me and I think scarred me for life. Not a very pleasant thing to have happen. Congratulations to the many who guessed number one?

December 1
Nude Dinner Party: When I first posted the invitation on November 16th, I didn’t know I was going to make it a nude dinner party but since it wasn’t real, why not! Most everyone invited showed up and even some unexpected guests showed up for the movie. All but a very few got naked for the event and it might be something I plan again next year! Not really.

December 12
I was nervous but I think the community meme was a success. There were some participants that were unsure about what time zone to post in and a few who forgot to mention they wanted to be a part of it. If you would like to visit a few sites that might not have had the five comments, visit these: Quianna’s Blog and Tour De Web. Scott cannot figure out how to add comments to his microblog and Quianna’s internet was down. At least visit QuiannaK’s blog and spread some comments her way! It’s never too late. If you would like to start a meme with a lot less rules and great questions, I would be interested in taking part in that. There is already plans in the working by one of the participants to create his own meme with a possible February date.

What I found most interesting about the meme was the answer to question six. “What would you do with your last day if you found you had only one more day to live? We are bloggers, right? The meme was for bloggers, right. Only one person (of the posts that I read) stated he would leave one last post on his blog. Does anyone who participated in the meme have a plan in place to notify your readers and visitors in the event you die?

December 29
Lady T, Teena Marie passed away on December 26th. If you would like to listen to one of my favorite Teena songs, you can watch on YouTube. It’s a live version of Casanova Brown.

Final Thoughts

According to some of the female visitors there has been a disproportionate amount of photos and wallpaper of women compared to men. This has been pointed out to me on several occasions. So, some time in the upcoming year (probably in April), I have prepared two posts strictly for women of male nudes (the first post, rated PG-13 and the second NC-17). After these posts I don’t want to hear anymore complaining. I am just warning you to either look forward to it or know when to steer clear of the site at that time. I don’t feel like I am caving into my readers, instead I feel like I am catering to them. I don’t just write this blog for myself. I write because I like visitors and I want you to continue visiting because you enjoy what I present. Just know that the second post is most definitely NSFW.

My Morning Erection wouldn’t be the same without you, the faithful visitor! I look forward to continue blogging in 2011. If you have any additional ideas for posts I am very interested in hearing them as well. Like last year I hope my content gets better as I continue to blog and I hope I will see you all next year. Be safe and Happy New Year!

Tomorrow is New Years Day and my guest blogger Iris Orpi will take front stage. The post tomorrow is a piece titled Déjà vu. I can assure you, you will enjoy reading her writing. Her blog is Cognac For The Soul but she also has six other sites you can visit. I apologize that this Saturday is a holiday because it could effect the amount of traffic to her post.

Iris Orpi will be guest blogging

    I’ll be here in April to see what kind of pictures of half naked men a man would think a woman would like to see! then again any erection is a good erection! I’ve read some of your other posts and enjoyed my time here. The poetry you select is par excellence.

    • #2 by Tom Baker on January 18, 2011 - 10:26 AM

      If you like semi naked and naked men, I’m sure you will like the images I chose. The poetry in Poetic License is the best I could find online and the best that people would allow to be featured on a site with the name Morning Erection! Thanks for coming by Tina.

    Definitely enjoyed the menu at your dinner party :) Thanks for your faithful comments on my blog. I really appreciate it. Looking forward to more posts!

      You are welcome. I enjoy reading your blog posts.

    Thank you for catering to your female readers. I for one will be patiently waiting for the month of April to come to see what type of pictures you have chosen for us. This is an awesome blog and it keeps me coming back!

    • #6 by Tom Baker on January 3, 2011 - 12:53 PM

      I just hope I don’t lose subscribers for posting such images (smile). I’m sure they will meet with your approval.

    Thank you for sending people to my blog for the meme. You had a great year and I’m so glad I found your blog. Keep it up!

    You had a great year! I hope this year is as great and if you do another meme, I will take part. I’ll visit Quianna’s blog and leave a comment.

    • #16 by Tom Baker on January 1, 2011 - 8:52 PM

      I hope you are able to make the changes you need to in your blog and I hope you are able to find a job soon!

    Happy New Year Tom! Here’s to a great 2011.

    • #18 by Tom Baker on January 1, 2011 - 8:38 AM

      Cheers! Happy 2011 to you and the nerd crew.

  10. #19 by Melinda on December 31, 2010 - 8:29 PM

    I have enjoyed reading your blog this year and am so glad I found it. The meme was a great success in that I found so many great blogs to read. LOL at leaving instructions in case of your death about your blog. It didn’t even occur to be to post on my final day, so I’m going to leave my blog to the guy/gal who thought to do so. ;) Happy New Year, Tom! Wishing you all the best in 2011!

    • #20 by Tom Baker on January 1, 2011 - 8:37 AM

      Melinda, thank you for your continued visits and comments. I agree the meme was a success and I know someone who wants to start a new one this year. Stay tuned.

  11. #21 by Jingle on December 31, 2010 - 1:58 PM

    awesome list.
    best wishes for the year to come.

    responded to your email, not sure your reaction…
    happy Friday!

    • #22 by Tom Baker on January 1, 2011 - 8:34 AM

      I apologize for not responding right away but I have been trying to get all ten questions together first. I thank you for even considering Ji. Happy and bountiful new year!

  12. #23 by Scent of my heart on December 31, 2010 - 11:37 AM

    Dear Tom, thanks for everything, for the comments, for the wishes, for knowing you. I will catch up on reading when I’m back to Athens. Regards and Happy New Year from Bulgaria.

    • #24 by Tom Baker on January 1, 2011 - 8:35 AM

      Just enjoy your time away from it all!

  13. #25 by Cherlyn on December 31, 2010 - 8:18 AM

    I hope you have a wonderful new years Tom, I’m very looking forward to 2011. As for your question regarding the community networking meme – although I’d like to say if I knew I was going to die that I would post a blog, it’s a hard question to answer. If I am in the hospital, or in some sort of intensive care, then it is out of the question. Though i’d like to think I’d let people know, I probably wouldnt. As much as I love my blog, there are many other things that I have on the top of my priority list. I’d probably give my best friend my password so he could notify my readers and let people on facebook know, or to let him post my final thoughts when I couldnt.

    It’s been great getting to know you this year! I look forward to bothering you in 2011 :)

    • #26 by Tom Baker on December 31, 2010 - 8:26 AM

      I think giving a loved one the password to inform people may be the best way to go. Enjoy your new year celebrations and the new year too. I’m glad I found your blog and have had the chance to get to know you.

      I wasn’t thinking when I did the Urban Legends. If I had thought things through I would have finished the first choice or limited the other choices. I somehow knew you would pick the correct answer. See you on the other side.

    A wonderful, busy, productive year for you, Tom. Best wishes for the same in 2011. Blog on …

    Happy New Year!

    • #28 by Tom Baker on December 31, 2010 - 8:08 AM

      It has been quite a feat. I’ve over extended myself on several occasions but I think I have learned from my mistakes. I’m ready to take on 2011! Prosperous and safe new year to you too.
