Topics for Blog: Bring em' On!

From time to time, I have asked readers to send me ideas (here, or via email) for blog topics. Five years in and 700 blog posts past my start here, I do get stale from time to time. So, drop me an email, a tweet, or a response here.

Give me a good challenge. I will try to be up to the ask.
