So, after my first post yesterday, I soon started to realize, that doing a first post, and starting a blog, was easy…its keeping it going that’s the hard part.
So in my conversations with a few people that read it, aka: the comments, I tried to get a feel for what people wanted to hear.
And what did I learn?
That no one can get along with each other, and everyone wants something different. Which I guess is what makes the internet so appealing. You get everything on here: From social networks to news sites; from information to uselessness; from Sesame Street for Adults, to Porn for Children (or is it the other way around? I never remember).
So I said then, I would discuss anything and everything that anyone wanted to read about, because if I didn’t, what would be the point of a Wondering Mind? (Shameless self-promotion, I know, but the name is only good if it’s used.)
One blogger, who we won’t name, but we will call ‘Altie’ (sorry, I don’t do anonymity on this site, except for myself J ), suggested wisely:
“When you put your mind to it, you suddenly start seeing things to write about. Interesting things that happen to you that day. And you find yourself thinking, ‘That was so funny/interesting/ridiculous that I just HAVE to share it on my blog.’”
And to that I say: Nope. As mentioned in my first post, which if you haven’t read by now, I highly suggest you do (as you can still see, I love the self-promotions), anonymity is key to a great blog in which you talk about others, religious observances/deviances from religion, and the likes, because if you get too specific on things you see or happen to you, your hidden identity start to fall apart. While it may be a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle, it is still able to get put together.
As for another users comment, who from here forth shall be known as ‘Sarah’, she said “Talk about dating! Girls are constantly talking about dating and we wanna hear it from the guys perspective.” Sarah, I’m sure it will come up in topics from time to time, because it’s one that is hard to stay away from. But if you have something specific that should be spoken about, or want to hear addressed, just say what it is, and I’ll promise to do a post on it.
And I offer that out to anyone else that reads this post, if you want me to talk about something, no matter what it is, just tell me the topic, and what it is specifically you have issues with/want to hear about it, and I’ll write a post about it.
And always remember, that if you go to a toga party, dressed as a goat, you might be dyslexic.
