What should I do?

You know when you're talking on the phone about stuff you're interested in, and the person on the other end of the phone just sits there silently and doesn't respond to anything you say? So you go on assuming they must just be intently hanging on every word like some co-dependent lap dog. Then you realize they aren't even there anymore, they've just put the phone down figuring that at some point you'll get it and hang up.

Yeah...it's starting to feel that way here.

So here's my questions to you and they require a response. If you don't have a blogspot ID just comment anonymously and sign your name. If you can't leave a comment e-mail me to let me know it's broken.

OK so the questions:

1. What is your name
2. How often do you read this specific blog?
3. What is your favorite thing about this? Not me, what is it that I talk about or do or say that you like most about the blog?
4. What suggestions would you give to make it better? Should I add in segments or topics? Have a regular schedule of issues and bits like a show or something? Am I entertaining in any way whatsoever?

OK No. 4 was like four questions but you get the idea. I've been using this as just a journal for so long but I'd like to turn this into something a bit more entertaining and easy reading for those who're interested in what's been going on in my life. I write this for you guys. If I didn't, I might as well just write in a diary at home or something. This is my way of keeping everyone I care about updated on my life because as many of you know, I'm really bad at keeping in touch. Some of you I saw this morning and some of you I haven't seen in years and everyone in between.
Anyways...write in. Let me know you're out there. Let me know that I'm not just talking to myself here. Give me some reason to keep doing this and maybe some idea on how it can be better (less boring or whatever).

Just started, so I've read the last 2.

Dunno, haven't been reading long enough to decide. (sorry)

4. What suggestions would you give to make it better? Should I add in segments or topics? Have a regular schedule of issues and bits like a show or something? Am I entertaining in any way whatsoever?

ummmm, that's a mouthful. I'm not much for caring what I read. I read to keep up with what's going on in yor life whether I laugh or not.

You know who this is, dammit!--AJ Cowlings

2. How often do you read this specific blog?

Somewhere between two and four times a week.

3. What is your favorite thing about this? Not me, what is it that I talk about or do or say that you like most about the blog?

Just keeping me up to date on your life since we don't get to hang out together (especially bad lately with my family sitaution).

4. What suggestions would you give to make it better? Should I add in segments or topics? Have a regular schedule of issues and bits like a show or something? Am I entertaining in any way whatsoever?

I find you entertaining! I dunno, the "bits" I do on my site just sort of grew organically out of my lusting for celebrities and keeping people up to date on my life and once they got accepted I just kept doing them. It's YOUR blog. Do it like you like. And don't force.

This is the only place where you publish your thoughts that you don't share with me. OH BTW Thanks for the Gift. We will watch it together tomorrow night or maybe on my B-Day

Wow, your family actually reads your blog. Count yourself fortunate!

I discovered you on that lame "mormonquestion" blog. I enjoyed your input. You gave much more educated answers than my own guesses at some of those questions.

(Anti-Mormons need to gather together in a lake and drown. Sorry, did that sound coarse? Not very Christ-like of me to say something like that, buy hey, I'm still progressing.)

I agree with your sentiments in the opening paragraph. I've been looking for a tactful way to implore readers to "speak up if you're reading!" But all I could think of were rude ways like, "If you don't comment, I'm deleting this damn thing so you can no longer be a voyeur into my life!" But that wouldn't be helping anyone would it?

So I was tempted to just graze on by your blog like I do many others, but I stopped to take a moment to say,

"I enjoy your writing. Keep it up."
