Have you ever wanted to meet some of the wonderful people you have on your blogroll. To see them face to face and put the face together with the blog you read so often. Have you ever wondered if you would like these people once you meet them or be disappointed? I don’t expect to be disappointed, but I can’t help but think about people who have met their favorite movie star or singer and were put off by the real person and not the persona’s they project on TV or in the movies. Once again I’m straying from the topic of the post. I think often of my blogging friends, like I do my everyday friends. I like to cook and now April does as well. If I could invite everyone who is on my blogroll to a dinner party at my house, I would!
One day I would really like to meet all of you but in case that never happens I have decided to invite all of you to a faux dinner party and a movie. It’s early November that I am writing this post so if between now and the date of the party I add you to my blogroll, of course you are invited as well. Internet e-vitations are frowned upon for formal dining but since this is a fake dinner, out the window with etiquette. Besides, I heard somewhere that it’s my party and I can do what I want to! Come back December 1st to see what April and I have in prepared for you.
There is a huge twist to the evening that will be revealed only when you get here!
One Year Blog Anniversary: Making A Better Morning Erection
Of course I mean making a better morning erection blog. I started Morning Erection on September 28th, 2009 just to see if I could blog for a full year. Although I didn’t blog consistently for a few months because April was sick, I still made it a full year without calling it quits. I still have a six weeks but I want to pat myself on the back now.
I’m not much for writing and I find it hard to believe how many friends I’ve made and how many people stop by daily and leave comments. Thank you. I need to thank April for ‘knowing’ that I could accomplish this goal. I am very happy with the posts, the visitors, and the comments, however I am always wanting to make things better.
In the past I have tried to make my blog as interactive as I could. I asked questions, composed polls, and invited guest bloggers. If you would indulge me once more; I want to know what you think I could do to make Morning Erection a better blog (no, I’m not changing the name). I’ve already been asked to bring back guest blogging. I would love to, but I need people willing to blog.
I have stayed away from most controversial subjects like politics, religion, homosexuality, and abortion but do you really want to know what I think about social issues? I am very opinionated but I don’t like to offend. I am querying you, the visitors. Whether you visit frequently or if this is your first trip here; what do you like or dislike about Morning Erection?
One of my friends told me if it ain’t broke don’t fix it but she’s a ‘glass half empty’ type of person. I’m for improving where and when I can. Help me build a better blog so I can feel good about going into a second year. Thanks for all your support and help this past year.
I found a blogger who is kind enough to guest blog for the month of September. I was attracted to her site because of the poetry, but I cannot promise poetry will be a part of her post here. Her name is Cherlyn Cochrane and her site, Over A Cup Of Coffee. This is my first guest blogger since Kari Cheng in June. Please mark your calendar, September 4, 2010 and stop back to read her post. Also visit her site before her post. I like it a lot and so might you.

These were created with a unique ‘toy’ that generates word clouds. The first one is the lyrics to Purple Rain. The second is the About Morning Erection page. The third is the Blogroll page and the fourth one is a collection of some of the movies I have on DVD.
I came across Wordle a couple of days ago and have since created about thirty of them. I found one that had already been made on Facebook of the Declaration of Independence but I just thought it was something a graphic artist had made.

Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), known professionally as Nat “King” Cole, was an American musician who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist. Although an accomplished pianist, he owes most of his popular musical fame to his soft baritone voice, which he used to perform in big band and jazz genres. He was one of the first black Americans to host a television variety show, and has maintained worldwide popularity since his death; he is widely considered one of the most important musical personalities in United States history.
