I'm listening. Really.
One of the things that has become clear to me over the last few months is that what you want from this blog and what I want from this blog are, by and large, the same things, and in order for me to be able to give you more of what you want, I need to figure out smarter ways of sharing things with you.
It's important to take inventory of what you're doing, because it's possible to get so caught up in the day to day flow of things that you are letting your blog run you rather than you running your blog. I got called out the other day for running a story about "Twilight," and you guys are right... that's not something I'm interested in. I was a little amazed at how Stephenie Meyer is milking her franchise in a way that Rowling seems to be resisting so far, and that's why I ran it, but you don't come here for "Twilight" news. At least I hope not, because if you do, you have taken a very, very wrong turn somewhere.
Original content seems to be an increasingly rare beast online, and it's the stuff that you guys seem to respond to the most. When you can read the same story on forty sites in a day, that story has no real value. But when you can only read something here, then it gives you a reason to visit this site instead of those forty others. Seems like common sense, but in a competitive market, it's easy to lose sight of that idea.
