Announcement: New “Ask the Readers” Series Revealed

Bring It Announcement: New Ask the Readers Series Revealed

Alright my lovely bloggapals and gals…

First, I wanna’ thank all of you who took the time to suggest some kick-ass names for my new “Ask the Readers” type series in my call for help last week. There’s more about the way it’ll play out in that post.

There were so many witty suggestions that it made me want to start 4 series instead of one – just so that I can use them all lol.

I had originally planned to have a nice looking poll for you today so you could vote on one of 4 names. Seriously…I did! Ask the “Female Thinking” brain lady on PollDaddy lol.

You see, I’ve often mentioned how indecisive I am and that when given a large choice of great looking things, I want them all!

Ha! You should see me shop for shoes and shit lol!

But then, something happened…something that rarely ever happens. I was able to make a decision and pick one by myself :D. [Applause is in order here please.]

So, without further ado and blah blah…

Bring IT!

Will be the name of my new weekly series.


Cause it’s a call to action and it’s short. Plus the more I thought about it, the more it grew on me.

Oh, and it has nothing to do with that frickin’ cheerleading movie! But feel free to bring your cheer sticks and pom poms if you want to.

When should YOU Bring IT!?

Every Wednesday!

Unless if I run out of ideas, which hopefully I won’t, because I’ve got a few lined up already for the next month or so.

I’ll also be counting on YOU to throw out some questions you’d like to see answered by me, my readers and our blogosphere of friends.

But Ingrid, why didn’t you pick “The Nitty-Gritty” (with T’s)?

Although I LOVE this idea (many of you did too) and it further reinforces my brand, I am Griddy with D’s and not Gritty with T’s – and didn’t want those to start being mixed up. Plus it’s a bit long, since I’ll probably be including the question of the week in the title as well.

But don’t be surprised to hear me (cause I actually talk/mumble when I type) welcome you with a “let’s get down to the nitty-gritty” – or to see it  included inside the post somewhere.

Thank you Many of You.

“Grid-Iron” was good Griddy, plus people call you “Grid” – so why not that one?

Well folks…I loved that one too – the sound of it and it’s meanings. But alas…it wasn’t a call to action.

No worries though. I’ll find a way to occasionally plug it in somewhere – somehow.

Thank you Jamey and Alex.

But what about the “Grid XChange”?

Again…I like that one a lot too. It rings great, has a part of my name in it and implies an exchange of views and ideas.

It also sounds like I’m a currency converter or Forex trader and I’d love to be both and throw money at you for your 2 cents – but alas…I won’t be. My last name is Abboud and not Onassis.

I’ll figure out a way to use that one though.

Thank you Angie.

Well, It looks like I’ve found a way to potentially use all of them after all hehe.

So that’s that…

Thanks again for all your inputs – you know I would use them all if I could ;).

Have a great week and see you here next Wednesday for the first round of Bring IT!

  • Brankica U

    Great choice, Ingrid, and I love the file attached I believe to James’s comment. Can’t wait to see the first “issue” lol.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hola Sharp Shooter :)

      I’m glad you approve and I will certainly be looking forward to hearing what you have to share!

      I just saw Jamey’s little video – I’m on my way over to him now haha.

      Have a great evening.

  • Anonymous

    Bring. IT. On! Love it and can’t wait to bring it…
    Best, Erica

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Well Erica – after reading your kick-ass comments over on my GP at Spin Sucks and elsewhere – you know I’ll be expecting nothing less that for you to Bring IT! and then some ;).

      Thanks so much for the support.

  • James D. Burrell II

    First off, It’s already been broughten.
    Secondly, you’re indecisive when shopping for fertilizer?
    Lastly, I’ll always bring it, but I’ll always know in my heart that I’m bringing it to the Nitty-Gridiron.
    Fourth (like PS since I already said “Lastly” (See above”)) I can’t wait.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hahaha Jamey

      I knew if someone had to get me with that it would be you or maybe even Howie lol.
      Damn – you nailed me on the fertilizer. I realized I opened myself up to that one after I published but was hoping no one would catch it Ha! I should have known Mr. Burrell :).

      Loved the video – it’s so you hehe. And yes, it’s been broughten indeed!
      But I’m hoping you’ll Bring IT! again next Wednesday. Can’t wait to hear your views!

      Have a great night Jamey.
      And thanks for the rockin’ clip – even if they are cheerleaders lol

      • James D. Burrell II

        Girl, don’t make me bust out my pom-poms and do a cheer for you. Perhaps that should be my ‘motivational video’ I do instead of doing the polar bear swim if I reach 100 FB fans by February. Hmm… or not.

        Oh, and I’m a man who knows his shit… ha. That didn’t sound very good at all, but it’s been written, so I’m not taking it back.

        Lastly, my opinions? This could be scary…;) (what just happened…again, can’t take it back)

        • Ingrid Abboud

          Jamey – what’s all this polar bear swim talk if you reach 100 FB Fans?!

          Of course you should dress up in a cheerleading outfit with a pom pom in each hand. Sheeshhh. Not even negotiable!

          Now get ready to cheer you heart out.
          PS – start practicing the pyramid stand (ask you roommate to spot for you lol)
