I have about three to six blog post ideas a day. I don’t know if this is low, average, insanely high, or reveals a touch of narcissism? They come to me at random moments; weeding a flower bed, not paying attention during a committee meeting, or scraping some type of mysterious goo off kids’ playroom floor. I take the decent ideas and place them in my wordpress draft pile, aka “topic purgatory.” I’ve been trying to find a moment to write something semi-literate on one of these, yet purgatory is just getting more crowded.
I started the blog to create a collection of ideas and develop my writing a bit more. If I was grading myself I could get at least a 50% if I had published the list of topics! I’d rather not offer up all of the reasons I’ve been a tad lame at my posting pattern. I have not mastered the teaching-doctoral student-administrator-wife-mom thing. Blogging, with laundry, has taken a back seat. The good news is my husband is fine with doing laundry. He’s not so keen on taking the blogging.
I really want to write because it helps me think through all that clutter of ideas and thoughts I read via twitter, other blogs, journals, and conversations. So I thought, why not poll any interested souls on some of the topics you think are worthy of more blog coverage? I don’t really have an expectation that I will have huge numbers of replies, but I do appreciate the feedback.
Below is a poll with a list of topics plucked off the purgatory list. Please chime in, or add your own idea.
