Bookworm will be back and blogging tomorrow or Wednesday. Yea!!! They didn’t have a judge for me today, but they swear they’ll have one for me tomorrow and so I’ll be in trial. So, I thought I’d ask for some advice to welcome Bookworm back. Personally, I think she runs a terrific blog, and those of you who visit regularly must find something of value here. But what can she do to make this blog a better place to visit?
Personally, as you can guess by the nature of my posts, I’d love to find a way to get more political discussion going. But, discussion is best when it is an exchange of conflicting ideas. When we were regularly getting streams of 100+ comments it was because we had at least five active commenters who were well left of center. Made for exciting comment streams. But most of those have drifted off over time. What can we do to attract more folks who disagree with Bookworm and me — folks like Helen, who can disagree with us constructively and, I hope, whom we can disagree with constructively as well?
What else can Bookworm do to make this a better place? Her posts are much more diverse than mine and this is her home (I’m just keeping the place going while she’s vacationing). But what do you particularly like and dislike about the variety of posts she does? What would you like to see more of? Less of?
I probably won’t have time to blog much for a while, but I’ve enjoyed our little discussions. Thanks to all the commenters who have made things so interesting while Bookie has been gone. I look forward to doing this again next time she’s on vacation.
