Let Your Voice Be Heard

I've started this blog because I wanted a place to put my poems. I'd been e-mailing them to people (quite against their will I'm sure), and felt like it would be better to have a central place where those who were interested could come and read them on their own. This was both a great idea and a terrible one: great because I wasn't bugging people as much, terrible because no one came to read (to be fair I have picked up and lost readers over the years, so at any given moment there were maybe two people I knew who checked the blog). A time went on, my interests have evolved somewhat, and I have begun to incorporate many new elements into this blog. At times it feels successful, while at other times it doesn't. Thus, I have decided to try something new; I am going to ask for my two readers to respond and give me their feedback on what they do and don't like.

I will ask you to rate the topics by how much you enjoy reading them. The scale we will use is 1-5 with 5 meaning you love the posts that relate to that topic and 1 meaning that you don't even bother to read them.

The five main topics are (and I am excluding the random ones that just spring up on occasion):

1. Poems/poetry
2. Soccer
3. Movies
4. Books
5. Music

So, in the comments section, feel free to rank them on that 1-5 scale and we'll see if we can't get a better feel for where this blog should be headed. Thank you.

Here are my 1-5 ratings (1 being that I never read it and 5 being that I read it and smiled, laughed, cried, visited a link you posted, or made someone else read it)

1. Poems/poetry (5)
2. Soccer (1)
3. Movies (4)
4. Books (5)
5. Music (5)

Haha. Hope that's helpful! In general, I quite enjoy every posting. I don't always watch the videos, and I don't always visit the links--but I do enjoy the posts.

Personally I think 1 should represent the best, not the worst, therefore my scale will be different than Steven's, with 1 being what I like the best and 5 being what I like the least (but let's face it John, if you write it, it's always likeable).

1. Books
2. Music
3. Movies
4. Poems
5. Soccer

I'm sorry about Soccer being last. I like it but I just don't know enough about it to follow most of your posts.

Also, I'm number three.

Don't stop writing about soccer because of the low scores. You like to write about soccer, so you go girl!
