What Appeals To You?
I've been thinking about what I want my blog to be... and experience has helped refine my thoughts. Your comments have often told me what works and what doesn't, what appeals to you (e.g., intelligent fashion) and what doesn't (e.g., foolish outfits; anything about the Supreme Court).
I don't want my blog to be egocentric. I don't want solipsism to rule. It's easy to be self-centered online, but that isn't how I am in person and not how I want my blog to be.
I'd like my posts to appeal to you. To give you something, provide content with value.
So, what would you like to see? What do you want to talk about?
There's lots on the table. With little prompting, I'm eager to start conversation about social issues, to explore ideas of gender, to chat about cooking and to dissect films -- but before doing any of that, I want to know what you want. If it's fashion you prefer, do you like posts about current trends? To look at pictures of pretty models? Or to watch me express my style as a tyro?
Different people have different preferences and I don't assume all of you are alike in your interests. So feel free to mention your particular preference and I'll try to serve your needs.
And, yes, that picture above is me!
