Topics Topics Topics

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.


  1. You aren't really saying much. The point of a blog is to say stuff, not talk about talking about stuff.

    And really, linking to your own blog ON your blog? Isn't that a bit much?

    (13 days... tick tock)

  2. I am saying my thoughts on what I've viewed so far, as you said yourself:
    "Or lessons you glean from situations are always refreshing to read. If you can be different then everyone else and offer a new perspective we never saw before- then people will be interested."
    These were all lessons and visions of seeing what people said about my first post.

    And as I said in the post...I love doing the shameless self-promotion...

    And yeah...if I do a post a day, that number may be getting closer and closer, really fast.

  3. Interesting.

    Yes but that's like saying to someone who is in your house, "Check out my beautiful house, come to my house." Kind of defeats the purpose.

    :) Can't say I'll miss you when you're gone.

  4. Fine fine, I'll keep the shameless self-promotions to a bare minimum from now on.

    Aww, that's so sweet, I wouldn't miss you either :)

  5. You can drop your name and your blog on other people's blogs. That's what I did when I first started out. You spam blogs with a ton of comments so they have no choice but to notice you. And you say 'hey come check out my blog.'

    :) You don't have to miss me cuz I'm not going anywhere.

  6. fine fine....either way, I need to spend the next 16 hours thinking up a new topic...because according to some *ahem*, this one wasn't good enough.

  7. :) Did I say that? I just think it's like sitting down at a meeting with no agenda and saying "Okay guys what should we talk about at this meeting today?" It's like a per-post-post. So it doesn't really count.

    Talk about puppies. Or rain. Or Canada. Always a good topic of interest.


Please comment. The minds wonder what you're thinking...
