Weekend Message – February 27, 2011

What a week it’s been!  I say that in a really, really good way.  I have to say I struggled with a couple of the posts this week, simply because I was trying to balance writing, work, and getting back into a routine at the gym.  I usually do my best writing early in the morning, and because I’m still fighting this chest cold (I’m winning the fight), getting up that early has been a challenge.

Thursday’s post was one that almost didn’t make it.  I was late getting it out, because I agonized over it all day.  I liked the message, but I wasn’t really sure of the direction the piece was taking, or if it had any direction at all.  A couple of times I almost scrapped it.  I’m so glad I didn’t.

For those of you who subscribed before Friday, you probably didn’t know this, but the good folks at WordPress liked that piece well enough to feature it in their Freshly Pressed list on the site’s homepage.  I’m deeply honored that they chose my blog as one of the day’s best, and I’m thankful for all the new readers who have come on board because of it.

For those of you who just joined us, I hope you’ll take some time to read a few of my previous posts.  It’ll give you a really good idea of who I am and what I’m trying to do with this.  And if you like what you see, please tell a few friends.  I’ve never been one to advertise.  I’d rather see the list grow because of satisfied readers passing along a recommendation than because of a well-executed marketing strategy.  It lets me know I’m writing pieces that mean something.

Along those lines, I’d like to pose a question to each of you.  I’ve written pieces that are inspirational, some that are more educational, some a little lighthearted, some a little preachy, and some that are funny just for the sake of being funny.  What do you like most?  What would you like to see more of?  This isn’t my blog, it’s our blog.  This is for you as much as it’s for me.  So let me know what you’d like to see.

This post is a little late coming out because I’ve spent most of the weekend answering reader comments and working on the new Health & Humor website.  More on that later.  But one thing I try to do is answer every email or comment, so please feel free to give me a yell.

For those of you who have been with me from the start, and those who just jumped on this train, thanks!  Without you folks, this just wouldn’t be any fun.  Therapeutic, maybe, but not much fun.  So from the bottom of my heart, thank you. 

Stay tuned!

    I’m going to complicate matters and say I like ones that are lightheartedly educational/inspirational. I grew up as the daughter of two pastors, so I’m good for “preachy” for the rest of my life (my luddite of a dad has a blog now, and gets far more hits than I do; oh, help). 😉 And “just funny” is always good!

  2. Oh, funny! Please, please, pleeeease! 🙂

    Thank you for asking this question, Dave. I like reading humor and greatly enjoy a good belly-laugh since my predominant nature tends to the serious, too serious in fact. But that is changing for me, finally, thankfully and I’ve vowed to focus on the playful and lighthearted view of life no matter what my circumstances. Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed, that’s how I found your blog.

    Well I’m new here so my vote doesn’t count, and I usually don’t really know what I want, (my wife tells what I like at a restaurant), so that’s two reasons to ignore me. But you have a natural bent for funny, and pretty well anything you say will have a humourous twist, so I’d say, let it all out and we’ll enjoy it.

  5. The Dreamer says:

    First of all, congratulation on getting freshly pressed! That’s brilliant news and you deserve it! 🙂
    I’ve enjoyed all your posts I have read so far, but I cannot pick one or two particular that I like best, as I love the element of surprise, so my vote is…. hit me with what you’ve got to say and I’ll be here!
    Your alert reader from across the pond! 🙂

    Whatever you write is great with me ! I guess i lean toward the lighthearted ,but I liked the inspiritional too. Keep writing !!

  7. egills says:

    As a newbie here I’d say I’m happy to read about whatever you feel like writing.. After all it is your blog 🙂
    ( And life’s far too short to be taken seriously all the time so when you’ve injected your take on things I’m bound to be chuckling anyway ).

  8. biologywilson says:

    Personally, sir, i think a good blog, like yours, should have all elements in one neat package.

  9. Hazel Macik says:

    Dave, You are the BEST! I like all your work so keep doing it the way you have been and that way there will be something for everyone. One topic all the time would get old fast. Keep up the writing since it is a God given talent.

    Hazel 🙂

    I like all those categories, but tend to remember lessons learned with a laugh. Keep up the good work.
