To My Readers: Appreciations and Questions

Have I said that I appreciate all my readers lately? Probably not. But I do. I appreciate you folks quite a bit, because without you, WISB would just be another one of those blogs that nobody ever reads. There are well over one hundred of you reading, which doesn't sound like much, but is a lot to me. I don't know who all of you are (some of you comment; most of you don't), but regardless, each and every one of you is important.

With that in mind (call it *sskissery if you will), I'd like to put a shout out to all of you reading to come in and leave a comment (or email me--I really appreciate emails from readers) based on the following:

What are some topics you'd be interested in me discussing? By this, I don't necessarily mean specific subjects, such as what's going on with the whole RaceFail09 thing or random things about science fiction, but more specifically to things you'd be interested in hearing my opinion about. Think of this as a sort of semi-Q&A thing. You ask me a question, I respond in a blog post. The reality is, that while I do blog about a lot of SF/F/Writing related subjects, I undoubtedly miss subjects you'd be interested in me discussing. Not too long ago I wrote about how to write reviews, which was prompted by an email from a reader, and I'd like to turn that into a tradition, if possible. I'd like to interact with as many of you as possible in a more direct way, where applicable. The one thing I really enjoy about blogging is interacting with you guys.

So, if you have a question about writing, science fiction, fantasy, or, heck, even something unrelated to any of those, feel free to fire it my way! You can leave it as a comment, send it via email, or both.

  1. Good question. When someone puts up an opinion piece elsewhere, you can always chime in with your own opinion on your blog, with a trackback. It will probably attract the attention of the original blogger, getting a bit of cross-blog dialog going.

    I'd avoid criticizing someone in such a public venue, though. I've seen it done elsewhere, and it doesn't reflect well on the one doing the criticizing.

  2. As I read your book reviews and other posts, I thought of a topic to consider as you follow the news also:

    How do current social events shape readers preferences?

    Keep up the great writing!

  3. Tia: What the heck is in your comment in reference to? I'm confused because it has nothing to do with this particular past as far as I can see :S. Is it in reference to my post the other day about Internet personae? Clarify, please, cause I'm lost and I want to say something useful in return, but I don't know what to say.

    TruGenius: Now that is a good question. I'll ponder that for a while.
