The Stuff We Haven’t Blogged Yet

Two years ago, observing the fact that the ZDs seem to struggle a bit with finishing posts, I put up a screenshot of our post queue. Since then, I fear the situation has only gotten worse. We currently have 795 drafts which have yet to see the light of day. So just for fun, here is a scarily long list of titles you would see were you to poke your head into the ZD queue.

“…then will I make weak things become strong…”
“Everyone I Love Has Left”
“God Wouldn’t Do That”
“Hanging out” worked for me
“I was never taught that!”
“The Old Testament God is Mean”

    Blogging and Time Zones
    Defacing Public Books
    Fear, Love, Passion: A Few Thoughts on Reading
    Feminist Anger: a Double-Bind
    Fun with Numbers: Family Size in the Ensign

    The Hypocrisy of Graduate School
    Was Mary a Virgin? Does It Matter?
    What’s Wrong With the Inoculation Debates

  2. I have to admit I started reading them through the B’s then realized how LONG the list actually is. Wow. I might come back here for inspiration when I’m out of ideas for my Exponent posts.

    This one did catch my eye as I was skimming.

    Men’s Stunning Incapacity for Abstract Thought

    Is this Ziff’s post or what?

  3. This list is just so tantalizing! Clearly, the ZD crew needs to quit their day jobs and get to work finishing these posts.

    Or, are perhaps you’re running across a problem I have–sometimes, I start a blog post only to find that my title is, by far, the best part of the piece. Sigh…

  4. Ladies,

    My wish list:

    A Response to Elder Oaks on Feminism
    *Absolute Consecration and Setting Limits with the Church
    Bored for the Lord
    Can You Will Yourself to Love People?
    Declarative Statements and Authority
    Fun with Numbers: Family Size in the Ensign
    GAs’ love-hate relationship with letters
    How Presiding Works in My Marriage
    I suffered; you should have to too
    Is It Better to Have People in Callings They’re Good At?
    Moral Earnestness and Prissy Morality
    More Thoughts on Reason, Revelation, and Prophetic Authority
    Reasoning and Emotional Appeals
    Socializing in Church
    The Scholar and the Beauty Queen at Education Week
    What Factors Lead to Difficult Temple Experiences?
    What’s the Difference Between Scaling Back Expectations and Losing Faith?
    Why I Struggle With Missionary Work

    I eagerly await.

  5. Have you considered making these posts fair game to your readership to see if any of them want to write a guest post?

    I second that!!!!!!!

  6. I vote for:

    Why Did the Chicken Patriarch Cross the Road?
    Why don’t we give up the “we’re Christians” argument?
    Why I Love the Old Testament
    Why Men Are Better Than Women

    Honestly, I vote for a lot of others, but I’m in a hurry and I don’t have time to hop around that list, copying and pasting them.

  7. My votes:

    Those Who Leave the Bloggernacle, But Can’t Leave It Alone
    Would you just please leave?
    Women, Blacks, and Original Sin
    Why don’t we give up the “we’re Christians” argument?
    The Church Hurt Me More Than It Hurt You
    God’s Embodied and Gendered; A Male God Can’t Experientially Understand Female Embodiment

    I also second/third the title poachage idea.

  8. I think the poaching, err, borrowing, err creatively acquiring topics is a great idea. After all, we’re clearly not getting to them as quickly as we’d like to. In fact, if Lynnette were more devious, I might suspect that she made up this entire list just to encourage others to stop by and decide to blog on the topics she finds interesting. Nice work, Lynnette! 🙂

    Jessawhy, the title “Men’s Stunning Incapacity for Abstract Thought” is unfortunately not mine. I suspect Eve is writing it.

    Emily, perhaps we should collaborate. I sometimes have fairly interesting things (I think anyway) to blog about, but my titles are so boring that even I can hardly bear to click on them.

  9. I am curious if blogging ever leads to burnout for the ZD authors. Being so giving of your time, thoughts, and lives must wear you down every once in a while.

  10. Okay, this list definitely whets my appetite.

    My hope-to-see-soon-wish-list:

    Are Church programs goods, betters, or bests??
    Are commandments any easier to nail down than doctrine?
    Bloggers who know
    Bored for the Lord
    How Presiding Works in My Marriage
    Models of Revelation, and the Possibility of Change
    Mormons and Evolution
    Questions About LDS Christology
    Random Things I’ve Learned from Blogging
    The Role of General Authorities
    Those Who Leave the Bloggernacle, But Can’t Leave It Alone
    Unconditional Love (especially if this refers to Elder Nelson’s comments)

  11. I suppose you could just take some of the ones where the title is a question and just use that as the entire post and see where the comments go. Like “how many children?” that one is fairly self explanatory.

    I had an idea for one though.
    “Is the reason that we don’t pray to our heavenly mother because there is more than one of them because God is a polygamist?”
