This group doesn’t seem to be as motivated as previous ones, so I thought if I dangled this carrot in front of them, they might work a little harder.
The weekend is the perfect time to experiment with new features, so I gathered the interns this morning at The House on the Hill and asked them to pitch me their ideas.
For a bunch of college kids who claim they want to grow up to work in the entertainment business, they didn’t come across as being very creative.
In fact, the only idea that was at all usable came from the really quiet one who always mumbles her name, so I still don’t actually know what it is. She suggested another contest.
Of course, since these interns pride themselves on only being half prepared on their best day, that was all I was able to get out of them.
The rules are simple: Finish what the interns started, and come up with a contest I can use on the blog.
I will pick my favorite contest suggestion, and then I will use that as the second new contest of the year.
Are you following all this, Modern Philosophers? The big winner will see his or her contest used on this blog as yet another contest.
You’ll get the credit for the idea, and see your name in bold letters on the blog. I will also shame the interns every day, pointing out to them how you, the big winner, was able to finish the blog idea pitch that they could not.
So who’s ready to wow me with contest ideas? If you really impress me, I’ll see what I can do about getting you credits at your local college for internship time served.
Knock my socks off, Modern Philosophers. Show these interns how it’s done…
