Maypole for BlogPresident

FACT:
On average, bloggers have 3 loads of laundry that urgently need washing.

FACT:
The kitchen floors of most bloggers go 5.7 days longer between washings than in homes where no one blogs.

FACT:
Most bloggers sit in front of their computer for at least 2 hours a day that they could be spending more constructively, and secretly wish they could spend more.

FACT:
Bloggers with anonymous blogs find themselves having to stop themselves before giving away their secret in conversation an average of 3.7 times a week.

FACT:
Bloggers with a day job spend lunch hours and many moments in between secretly checking their blogs

If Painted Maypole were president of the Blogosphere, many of these things would be better for the average blogger. Senator Maypole would make sure that ads running on blogs paid WELL, never infringed upon the look of your blog, and were always for products and causes you endorse. Blogging could become your full time profession. You could hire someone to wash the laundry and clean the floor. You could speak proudly of your high paid career in electronic communications. You could quit your day job and spend all day posting and commenting. Changing the world through your words. And wouldn't that be a much better world, not to mention blogosphere?

This ad was paid for by Maypole for BlogPresident. All statistics in this ad were collected by the independent consulting team of May Day, Inc.

This has been a Monday Mission. Your Mission (besides voting for me, of course!) is to write a post in the style of a political ad. If you choose to accept this mission leave a link to your post in the widget below. Get out and rock the Monday Mission.



And it's that time again - a new month of missions before us:
4/7 April Showers - We've all been to baby and bridal showers. What else deserves a shower? Who would you honor? Who would you invite? What kind of activities would it entail? Write a post as an invite or party plan for your own kind of April Shower.
4/14 Bridal Breakdown. You've read the newspaper briefs about weddings. "The bride wore a floor length satin gown...." Write a post about anything you'd like in that same style.
4/21 Want Ad
4/28 House listing

LaskiGal said...

You read my "Bloginsomnia" post--you know I'm voting for you . . .

flutter said...

I would SO vote for you

jen said...

dude, i'd campaign for you any day.

JCK said...

You'd be #1 in my book. And are. Man, this was brilliant. And should be read by woman bloggers everywhere!

Family Adventure said...

You've convinced me and have my vote forever more :)

Hey Teach! said...

You have my vote. My weak attempt at this week's Monday Mission has been posted.

Kyla said...

I'm voting for you. For sure.

And I have to stop my HUSBAND from outing my blog several times a week. He's not the optimal secret keeper.

Melissa said...

You rock my vote! Go PM!


Only three loads of laundry that urgently need washing? You are far more efficient than I am then. Just another reason to vote for you!

Rima said...

Awesome. Could we get paid per comment, too? :)

Mary Beth said...

You definitely have my vote. Why is it those few (and I really do mean few) stolen moments during the day are when the boss is walking behind you? It's like watching rated R videos as a teenager - we knew when my mother would come into the room - as soon as the sex started! I've added my link for my ad - who will win, I wonder?

Kathryn said...

Oh yeah. You've got my vote!

Victoria said...

Clearly you are a shoe-in!

imbeingheldhostage said...

Would you consider running for the US President position instead? Please.

This challenge was beyond my drained brain activity, but I am so looking forward to April. Thanks for a fun read today!

NotSoSage said...

You've got my vote! Um...and maybe if I slipped you a portion of my income you could "take care" of those nasty trolls, too?

Mary G said...

How about six weeks of unironed laundry?
I am designing your lapel button and the campaign hat.
Love it.
Love the April missions.
I'm up.

Jennifer said...

It's you by a landslide! Let the real change begin!

:)

Mad said...

Do you sell snake oil as well?

niobe said...

I don't know how many times I *almost* slip up and mention my blog. Glad to know it's not just me.

Christine said...

this. is. AWESOME!!

I've just started blogging and already I find my house is a wreck, my kids don't have clean undies (not really), I'm writing blogs constantly in my head, I'm laughing over imaginary comments (someday they'll be real - I hope) and just when I swear off blogging for the day, I sweat, shake and then dive for the keyboard. Freaken computer!

susiej said...

I LOVE this!!! Especially about the floors.

nomotherearth said...

Gosh, I wish you WERE BlogPresident.
