Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

So I thought I would do something a little different with this one. Hopefully it will work out... I haven't tried this kind of thing since I moved my blog and I'm not sure how well it will go. Fingers Crossed!!!!!

I am going to take each word and give you a video for it!! Fun??? 

Bread -


Eye Candy -


Fountain -


Renegade - 


Summer - 


In Wordpress I knew how to give the video. Not sure if this will give you the actual video or just a link... I guess I'll find out when you do! 

Hope you had fun!!!


  1. The first three link to the same video, but I loved it anyway, lol!

    1. Well, snot!! Eye Candy was supposed to be Right Said Fred "I'm Too Sexy". I can't remember what Fountain was supposed to be.

  2. I LOVE "If". Haven't heard it in years (and years). What a fun and innovative way to approach Use Your Words!!!

  3. Bread / If - I think I know that song by Lobo? Were they partners?
    Eye Candy and Fountain have the same link as "Bread"
    Renegade - I have never heard that song even though I like Styx! We performed a dance in 4th grade to the music of "Boat on the River"
    (Cruel) Summer - one of my favorite summer hits from when I was young, I mean, REALLY young!

    Thank you for this musical post, great idea!

    1. Thank you so much!!!!
      LOL! I can't remember how old I was when Cruel Summer came out.. Maybe 10??

  4. I see links but no video and no photos. Blogger is tricky when it comes to videos.

    1. Thanks! I meant to come in and change the bad links but got too busy! LOL

  5. A musical menagerie! Fantastic. There's a way to add video in Blogger. At the top of the page, next to where you add the pictures, there's a little cut-scene board... just add the address/link there and the video should show up on the blog.

  6. What a fun idea!! Next time I am stumped I may have to use you as inspiration!!

    1. Thank you!! I knew I needed to do it in a hurry in case I wasn't available later on. That was the fastest thing I could think of! LOL

  7. Thank you for the entertainment!! Love seeing what thoughts certain words bring to the minds of others!!

  8. What a cool idea!!!!! I may have to use this one day (and I'll be linking to you for credit for sure!!!!)


I <3 comments!! Thank you so much for taking the time! :)
