Just in case I manage to start blogging more, or perhaps in hopes that some focus will help me to do so:

I didn't help, I clicked almost everything.

One thing I'd specifically like to see is what you've learned so far writing comic books.
Kari Sperringla_marquise_de_ on January 5th, 2012 09:04 am (UTC)
Having ticked Other (alongside other things) in both lists, my suggestion to both is to write about things that are engaging you.

Fortunately, everything I've listed is something I'm interested in writing about, should I get my act together. Even, or perhaps particularly, YOU CANNOT STOP THE TICKY! :)

I ticked them all. I love your writing style (even when doing film/tv reviews). "Other" would be family.
kitmizkit on January 5th, 2012 02:07 pm (UTC)
Family is one thing I don't talk about that much on my blog, because I figure while I signed on for this odd semi-public lifestyle, they didn't. :)

I ticked a few things, but I second la_marquise_de_ - it has to be interesting to you as well otherwise it's just a chore! :-)

Happy New Year!

Merry =^..^=

Like Kate, I needed a 'Yes' box. :)

I started voting and realized I was ticking every box. Then I realized what I'd sort of known from the start:

The correct answer is "Whatever you feel like writing about." It's your blog. I'm generally interested in what you have to say on a variety of topics, but if you post something I'm not so interested in, I can easily skip/skim.

Sorry that doesn't help you focus, but looking at the comments above, it seems I'm not alone.

Other, leave in comments: I would love to hear about brilliant Young Indiana's accomplishments and escapades.
