The Ministry of Silly Blogs would not be here today without the solid foundation of research into the realm of Silliness that was performed by that well-respected and venerable institution, The Ministry of Silly Walks.

In other Official Ministry News, our NaBloPoMo group now has 8 Official Members. Welcome Silliness Afficionados! More information on the formidable history of the Ministry of Silly Blogs is available from this encyclopedic resource.

Soon to come: job listings for available Official Ministry positions, an Official Ministry Blogroll, and a Discussion of Official Ministry-approved topics of Silliness.


Here are some Official Ministry Seals and Official Ministry Badges as well as an Official Ministry Face with Googly Eyes.

Feel free to use these on your own blogs, with a link back to either the Official Website of the Ministry of Silly Blogs, or the NaBloPoMo Ministry of Silly Blogs Group Homepage. You are welcome to scale or alter them. You are also welcome to design new Ministry Bling, or make requests (such as for color changes).

The Official NaBloPoMo group has been created for the Ministry of Silly Blogs.

What’s with this blog?

October 20, 2007

What have you done?
I done went and created a new blog. Largely because it’s so damn easy to do so.

Why have you done this?
The Ministry of Silly Blogs was created as a venue for bloggers particpating in National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), which entails committing to posting to a blog every day for the month of November. The official NaBloPoMo site allows users to create and join various groups. There are lots of groups so far. Some based on locality, others based on common blogging goals or personal interests. I felt the lack of a group for bloggers who are prone to silliness.

Who can join?
The official NaBloPoMo group (which doesn’t actually exist yet, but should any minute now) can be joined by anyone who has signed on to NaBloPoMo. In particular, you may want to consider joining if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • You write posts that, at least on occasion, could be described as silly
  • You appreciate reading posts, at least on occasion, could be described as silly
  • You enjoy a good snicker, chuckle, chortle, cackle, giggle, guffaw and/or the occasional belly laugh
  • You have been known to write things that make someone laugh (even if that someone is yourself)
  • You have been called goofy, loopy, batty, cracked, boffo, funny and/or (the most coveted) silly.
  • Even if you’re not participating in NaBloPoMo this year, you can still participate in blogging silliness. If you post a silly post in the month of November, just leave a link to it in the comments to this post.

    What will become of me if I join?
    At this time, the Ministry is accepting applications for a variety of official Silly positions: Second Assistant Minister of Silliness, Semi-Permanent Under-secretary, Chief Silliness Advisor, Under-secretary to the Third Assistant Minister of Silly Blogginess. If you would like to propose an alternate position title, please do so.

    What’s in it for me?
    If you write a Post of Silliness, or find a Post of Silliness, you can submit a link to be included in regular Official Ministry of Silly Blog updates. (Pending Official Ministry Staff Approval.)

    How do I submit a post?
    Leave it in the comments, below. Or in the comments of any current Ministry post.
