My blog where I suck up to the readers and solicit your feedback

I like my blog, I enjoy working on it and, under the right circumstances, ideas flow like blood from a shaving nick. But the real world generally imposes its ugly mug with things like work deadlines, and so my blog stales (I wondered about using "stale" as a verb, so I looked it up, and prefer definition #7  www.definitions.net/definition/stale). 

And then I saw this comic (which is covered by the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License) and have to agree that the readers of a blog are the most important characteristic of a successful blog (who are, in the case of this blog, I must say, are very intelligent, well-read, handsome and look like they have been working out).

 

Good content updated often (see first paragraph) is essential, but what is written, often and well, also needs to appeal to the readers.

So, dear readers, here is your call to action: tell me what YOU want to see discussed in my NEXT blog. Use the following numbered suggestions with Easy-Click(TM) feedback/email links:

1) Write next blog based on Google Hot Searches (USA) selected by rolling 4 dice. If you select this option, sometime between July 30 and August 1 I will go to www.google.com/trends/hottrends armed with four regulation dice. After shaking these four dice and getting a number between 4 and 24, I will subtract 4 and the search number matching the result will be the theme/topic/seed for my next blog. 

2) Write next blog based on my daughter's suggestion. If you select this option, sometime between July 30 and August 1 I will ask my 10-year-old daughter what subject to write about. I will use the following language, "Think carefully before you answer because it's really important. What topic do you want your father to write about in his next blog post." After the answer is given, I will ask a variant of "Is that your final answer" and after that I can only ask for clarifications, not lobby for a change of mind. 

3) Write next blog based on the most popular suggested topic. If you select this option, I will take the most popular suggested topic (where I have the liberty of paraphrasing slightly similar suggestions to narrow the choices) and write my next blog around this topic.

So it's up to you. Multiple votes must indicate which is to be the "final" vote or the first received from an address will be used. The more votes the more interesting this will be. And you can expect a future blog describing this whole experience, which (since this is Cypress) will very likely include an analysis of numbers.

Happy work-week 30!
