Request for reader input

Hello all you fellow blog consumers out there!

I'd like to take a minute of your time and explain something I'm doing, and see if you'd be able to help.

As you probably know, a "Blog" is short hand for "web log". Basically, it's a sort-of diary of whatever topic comes to mind. But many blogs are not “diaries” in the traditional sense – they can become sources for certain types of information. In fact, a lot of the information that you see in a typical magazine or newspaper is also published in a blog (it’s what’s allowed me to drop my Houston Chronicle subscription – I just subscribe to a few of their equivalent blogs for free!).

In my opinion, blogs can and will serve a good use from here on in. They are a solid way of getting and confirming information apart from the mainstream media. There are literally millions of blogs out there- what you subscribe to (see bloglines.com as an example of how to subscribe to blogs) is a matter of what you choose to want to pay attention to.

Just like the other millions, I’m just one guy with one blog. But I’m attempting to make a “high quality” blog.

That’s where you come in.

You guys know me. You know what information I can provide, and you know what information you need and want. So … what info do you want that you think I can provide? (Within reason - I'm probably not the guy to tell you about Bolivian snails.)

Please comment to this blog entry & let me know what I can develop in the blog.

Thanks,

- Bob
