Berdo’s Blog’s 1st Anniversary!

November 13, 2010

As readers who have been following my blog knows, I started these postings about a year ago in November. Although I haven’t posted consistently, I believe that I blogged entertaining posts throughout the year. I must also admit that I am a very big procrastinator and I have read lots of material about time management, yet I don’t put any strategies into action. Now, I have been busy with lots of schoolwork in the month of October and the always awesome X– Halloween Countdown absorbed my attention, even if there were not any X-rated entertainment involved. Matt’s expertise on article writing (10 years plus) allows him to post five times a week, which is awesome.

Writing for “Berdo’s Blog” is fun but tough for me. I have been writing on and off for a year. Putting out an article is the biggest bitch. I think my grammar, writing voice, and even humor has improved in the last year, but writing did not get any easier for me. I’ll admit, I’m not a great writer but I’m trying. I believe anyone can get good at anything if they put in the time and effort, so I push on. (more…)

Cereal Mail-in Prize: Hamm Pig

September 16, 2010

For the five people who read this blog, they know that my last article was about cereal and cereal prizes. I used to send out for several different prizes as a child. It was an easy way to get new stuff without begging Mom and Dad to spend money. As I got older, I fell out of the habit of mailing in order forms for free junk. However, the opportunity to send out for something free came up and I took advantage of it.

I buy a lot of Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats for my son. He is a very picky eater so this cereal is a godsend because he loves the stuff. I thought this was weird because I did not care for this cereal when I was a child. They were too “wheaty” and not sugary enough. I must’ve looked like a cow eating it cause it was so grainy. In addition, the only flavor that was available for the Mini-Wheats was plain. Now, I have seen other flavors such as chocolate, strawberry, curry, blueberry, maple syrup, and cinnamon. If those flavors were around when I was a kid, I would have given this cereal second glance…and then look away and pick up my other super sugary cereals anyway.

Anyone who bought children’s cereal regularly everyone) knows that usually when a major motion picture for kids is released, there are movie-tied products that are promoted in cereals as well as other food items such as Happy Meals, cookies, cakes, and any other foods that give kids tits. This promotional idea is also used on this specific box. It’s Toy Story 3!
