Will You Help Me?

For as long as I can remember I've always wanted to write in some form or fashion.  And for the last several years I've really wanted to write professionally.  It's not a goal that I can pursue full-force right now, but I've found a few ways (like this blog) to work slowly toward that goal.

Right now I'm planning to overhaul this blog and make it more professional oriented and better connected to the writing/publishing possibilities.  The very first thing I would like to do is focus the content and potentially rename the blog.  I write about whatever I feel like most of the time and it is certainly random at best.  Here is where you can help me, if you're willing.  I've created a little poll to see which area might be more interesting to readers.  So, if you have 10 seconds, would you take this little poll? :)

I'm definitely looking for all kinds of feedback, so if you have suggestions or critiques, feel free to leave a comment or email me.

I'm not a writer or professional blogger by any means, but I think I would like feedback with a vote if I did a poll. My 2 cents: I suggested all of it because: 1. You can write about whatever you want until you can put your finger on what you're most passionate about. 2. Most of the topics are related to each other in one way or another, so you'd still draw in about the same type of reader no matter which of those topics you went with I think. (and that way you could draw people into other similar topics they might not normally be interested in) 3. You have more options if you're having writers block on a particular subject. (I get that with pictures sometimes.)

I know I read some blogs only because of their style of writing, rather than what they're actually talking about. Then there are some where I might be interested in the subject, but I know I'll just be bored reading it so I skip it... So I just say that to say that I like your style, and think I would read what you have to say regardless of the subject. :)

Hope this helps! I'm excited to see what you do with the blog!

P.S. I think my comment might have been longer than your actual post.
