Poll #1663182 What interests you?

I don't make resolutions, and if I did they wouldn't be tied to New Years anyway, but I do enjoy the impetus to look back, peer forward, and reflect. And one conclusion I've reached is that I really do need to speak up more, write down more, and just generally make that extra effort of outreach. So, my question to LiveJournal readers is, what topics are you most interested in, what would you like to see me post about?

I neglected to let you know (sorry!) that the two books arrived here safely, and are still in their envelope to protect them from dogs. The delivery person had tried to already do as much damage as possible [holds it up dripping dirt from where it landed].

Very strong caveat on the "once per day" choice -- if that's workable for you. It probably won't be for a uniform diet of thoughtful chewy essays, but more hyper-local details are always interesting.

Unless the hyper-local details concern what your damn cats are up to.

You must be thinking of someone else.

While we do have cats (three), they are rarely the source of any story worth telling. I think I had Scalzi in mind with the option of photos.

I'd enjoy seeing more posts from you, but clicked "whenever is better than never" as the closest answer to "at whatever frequency is comfortable for you." Though once an hour is probably overkill.

#s 2 and 3 (first list) are not disjoint sets . . .
and I do not need any more pictures of cats.

True, although I find I *still* frame my worldview of the marketplace with the old (1930 - 1990) system, then add in all the changes.

Perhaps the exercise of spelling out what I saw then, what I see now, and how I think things may change in times to come, will help me integrate more.

I had already forgotten that I had asked about cat pictures when Bill commented. They are just not that big a part of my life - but so clearly major to others!
