Local fetes! I love the quirkiness of little village or town gatherings, everywhere has there own traditions and eccentricities, would be so fun to read and see all the pics!

I'm so nosey, I like reading day in the life of.... doesn't matter what it is, as long as there is juicy detail I love it!

I'd love to read a blog with the inner musings of a stupidly rich banker, footballer or tax avoider... although I suspect it'd make incredibly depressing reading.

Maybe a multi millionaire? To see if it really is as fantastic to be uber loaded or in reality is it not as good as we all imagine it to be. Many aspire to make our millions but would it then throw up insecurities, doubting friendships, trust and guilt. Humm I think I might have just lost my incentive to carry on working today??

I love everyday blogs,trials n tribulations of a mum so I know not just me that sometimes has bad days! Less likely is the blog of the perfect mummy - unless its all a work of fiction smile

I like to read about geeky science things, being a Science Geek mum. Trouble is, if you search for science and mum, you get sites about mothers teaching small children about science or the science of childrearing. I want the fun geeky stuff for scientists who also happen to be juggling childcare too. And are female. And live in the UK. (Acknowledges there's a GeekMum in Australia.)

I would love to blog from inside Keanu Reeves' brain, giving a running commentary of activity. There would be a lot going on - but not much in the way of firing synapses. Just surfing, some Matrix-style moves and a lot of Californication. It would be very funny, I hope. Daft and full of mischief.

Time-travel... definitely time-travel smile

GetKnitted Mon 02-Jul-12 10:51:05

If time-travel is a problem... domestic history would do...

I'd love a blog exploring different women's lives in different countries which could run for a year say and just document everything, getting children ready, food, school run, work etc. If you made the woman's age the same (don't know if MNHQ would have average ages of us - 35? it would be extremely interesting (to me anwyay!) x

A blog written by someone from the UK trying to break into Hollywood - preferably a screenwriter, as they'd probably write better than an actor would;-) It should be gossipy, too, and have plenty of musings on two subjects I love: food and fashion:-)

JoanneMallon Mon 02-Jul-12 11:34:43

I wish Nora Ephron had blogged. THAT would be worth reading.

Other than that, I just like reading blogs by good, preferably funny writers. A good writer can make anything seem interesting so the subject matter is less important.

I'd like to read another nanny who blogs much more frequently than I do, it's always nice to see other nanny's and their views on work.

hippoCritt Mon 02-Jul-12 12:28:40

Taxidermy - in the hope I could understand the appeal. News programme last week featured a young person who stuffs the animals then dresses them up, still struggling to understand why.

hz Mon 02-Jul-12 16:03:58

Re Nora Ephron - she did actually blog, see the HuffingtonPost!

DillyTante Mon 02-Jul-12 23:18:10

I'd love to read a blog discussing the will-they-won't-they relationship of Mulder and Scully <über geek>

I'd like to read a blog that mixes fiction and non fiction - so 'went to the supermarket and was served at the deli counter by a very rude kitten' - to create a completely barking but insightful analysis of everyday life. I make up daft stories like this for DS1 and they go down a storm.

Stitchthis Tue 03-Jul-12 07:24:08

The other, more realistic and I suspect addictive one would be a Good Taste/Class blog in the style of Jilly Coopers classic and the recent Grayson Perry tv series. You could have fun with that and start some fierce debate.

And finally how about an AIBU blog? Sort of grumpy old mumsnetter type of thing?

Stitchthis Tue 03-Jul-12 07:25:55

heres the link to the JC book. Read!!!!

A space blog but one that is fun to read and accessible to anyone interested in stargazing and planets without being too sciencey. Sometimes there are amazing things to spot out there without having to understand the complicated names and science of it all.

I would love to read a blog from a 5-6 year olds point of view. Some of the things my daughter comes out with 'I don't like stinky teddies', 'Is chicken eggs just like a nice chicken poop'. I bet there would be something fabulous and hilarious every day.

SonyaCisco Tue 03-Jul-12 12:06:44

I would love to read a blog by the Mad Hatter- tales of wonderland. All tea parties and nonsense rhymes I shouldn't wonder.

Or one by Miss Marple. Endless tales of mystery, murder and tea with vicars.

Or one by Johnny Rotten from the Sex Pistols because I enjoy his eccentric Ramblings.

I would like to read a blog about the true inner feelings of the staff at the Disney theme parks - the ones who play the characters.

It could be entitled 'The misery behind the magic'.

And have a logo showing the Cinderella impersonator having a sneaky fag round the back of her castle.

or Mickey Mouse giving the bird to a gaggle of visitors as they walk away from him.

or Chip headbutting Dale so hard that the vet has to be summoned.

It'd be very popular, and be online happily ever after, as Disney are not in the slightest bit litigious.
