Once upon a time, not so very long ago in August I used to do a little thing every Wednesday, something more fun that a bra full of fun sized Mars Bars and fun bags – What?Wednesday! So yeah you’ve never heard of it, I get it, here’s the deal…
“Here’s how it goes , take a post-it note or small square of paper and on it draw or write anything you like – a doodle, joke, statement, poem – anything -happy, sad, funny, grumpy whatever your mood. At the bottom of this ‘note’ write your blogs web address and/or twitter name.
Next step is equally as fun – pop the note somewhere – anywhere ! On a tree in the park, on the toilet door at a service station , on holiday in another country, bus,festival, library,supermarket shelf …the possibilities are endless ! Now take a photo of your note in its new ‘home’.
The following Wednesday post up the photo and if you like an explanation as to where you left it and why and if anyone has ended up getting hold of you to say they have seen it !
I just love the idea of someone randomly spotting a note left somewhere and their reaction – ‘What ?!’ , hence ‘What? Wednesday’. And you never know someone somewhere may end up reading and enjoying your blog because of it !
You don’t have to do it every week, but there are so many funny ways of doing it that it can’t help but raise a smile…unleash your inner-monkey.”
In it’s time it’s inspired Chatty Babys ducks to travel to the Trevi Fountain, Actually Mummy to write a note on a Tena Lady pad and stick it to a supermarket shelf and My Life, My Son, My Way stick a post it note to a sleeping man in a theatre.
Next week, Wednesday 18th IT’S BACK! Bigger and better with new found gusto and energy as I team with Red Ted Art to bring you a whole new #W?W which you’ll be able to do with your kids.
It’ll be fun, it’ll be cool and there really is nothing not to love about it!
Here’s my little gallery of some past #W?Ws of mine to whet your appetite…
