Happy Monday. Woo!
I haven’t done anything like this in a while, and I always think it’s a great time getting to know this community better, so today’s a super special fun time blog day!
Today I want you to ask me a question. Any question, really. Ask me about something that you don’t know about me. Or you can ask me for a piece of advice. I give great advice. This weekend, a reader asked my advice about her son’s college choices. For real. It was fun. It can be something like that, or you can ask me something less consequential, like the best way to cook a steak.
Here’s the catch. If you’re asking me something about myself, you have to answer the question about yourself. And if you ask me for a piece of advice, you have to give me a piece of advice on a topic of your choice. The usefulness of the advice I give you will be proportional to the usefulness of your advice. Got it?
Also, take a moment to notice the new features here on the blog. I’ve totally overhauled the navigation and sidebar. There’s a few related posts listed in the sidebar from the archives, for your amusement. You’ll see a place where the top commenters are posted. It’s tallied over the last five days, and you can see it only takes a few comments to get your name on the banner. I’ve been told that my blog really does drive traffic to readers’ blogs. So getting advertised on my blog very well may change your life for the better.
I’ve also made it easier than ever to contact me. The “Contact,” “Free Stuff,” and “Speaking” pages all have integrated message forms. No more copying and pasting email addresses. Yea!
If you don’t have a photo that pops up when you comment, head over to Gravatar to get set up. Gravatar is recognized by many commenting systems, so it’ll work on lots of different blogs, not just mine. And I love to have a face to put with a name.
Okay, let’s have some fun with the questions. Ready? Go.
