Change is in the air.
I’ve bought a domain name. Played with the design of the site a bit.
Now, in yet another effort to make this site a bit more interactive, I’ve added ratings to each posts. Now, when you’re done reading a post, if you don’t want to take the time to write a comment, you can let me know how you feel by rating the post from one to five stars. This works anonymously — I can’t see who rated what.
Why have I done this? After three months of writing, I seem to be settling into a groove here. The writing I’m doing falls into a few broad categories:
- personal essay
- stuff with a literary bent
- food writing
- news analysis / commentary
Of course, these categories aren’t mutually exclusive. Often I’m weaving a few of them together, as I did in this post. You get the idea.
I’d like to give you guys more of what you’d like to see here in the weeks ahead. But I can’t really tell what you, my regular readers, enjoy. So I’d like to know.
And post ratings are one way that can help. If you really hate something I wrote, don’t just ignore it. Rate it!
I don’t promise to change much of anything based on the feedback of the anonymous masses, but I’ll listen.
