My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Poll: Do you read the Potpourri?

So I have a poll over to the right.  It's a question about the weekly feature I've done since W.A.W. started where I put up a bunch of links I've found.  If you're not sure what the Potpourri even is, you can go down to the Reliquary and check, but it probably means you should check the "don't read" box.  :-)

I'd really love as much feedback as possible because I'm finally dealing with enough readers that I can START to shape the blog based on feedback.  (Not much sense doing that when the readership is 15, but now that it's closer to triple digits, it might actually help.)

Bonus points for putting some kind of reason in the comments.  I'd love to know WHY I'm missing (and how to fix it) if I am, rather than just THAT I am.


  1. It's not you, it's me. . . I've only been reading the blog for a relatively short time. The problem for me is I haven't really zoned in on what the schedule is for the blog. In my head, it's something that Facebook let's me know exists, so I read it when convenient rather than scheduling it like my other important site visits (aintitcool, penny-arcade, zero punctuation). In general, I really like what you are doing here and have found your analysis of various topics to be top notch. I just need to find out what the groove is, and then insert myself into it.

    1. Thanks. Honestly one of the things I've been wondering about is if a schedule is useful at all. People only seem to click if and when I cross post to other social media. But given what you're saying, I'm probably going to stick to my efforts to keep doing what I'm doing in a timely manner, so that people who aren't my friends can have something to get "into the groove" of.

  2. I'm interested in stuff that's going on with you, and some of your writing insights, but for the most part, I'm information overloaded pretty much all of the time, so I try to avoid collections of links so I don't end up down the internet hole.

  3. TBH, I read about half the posts you make, but rarely the potpourri ones.
