Every few days I have a look at the stats from the blog and I’ve found it astounding to see how it has grown. How many hundreds of you, from all around the world visit this space, every single day – is both exciting and daunting for me all at once. For those of you that “know” me through the internet, it’s safe to say you know that I’m all about being honest not only about my own life but also about how I feel about this big wild world that we live in. I love pretty things but sometimes life is just damn ugly… and that’s OK too… cos as much as we are all beautiful we are all a bit ugly too.
With 2013 already rolling on and all of the wonderful responses I have had both privately and publicly to our Guest Post series… I’ve been thinking a lot about YOU. All of you. Some of you who email me regularly from far off lands, I think about daily… and you, the readers, as a collective I think about just as often if not more.
So here is the chance for you to have a say in what we discuss, what we research and what we just lay it all out there in this space, too much information or not… in 2013. I’d love to know what YOU want to read more of. The sorts of posts you are interested in seeing and what I can do to get you all a bit more actively involved. I’ve had lots of emails over the past few weeks with people asking for more food posts (I’m working on it, I’m just really terrible at remembering to write down/photograph the things I cook for Bo and myself… it’s never really been my forte), more political posts, more parenting choices posts… and then so many emails from women who have experienced marriage breakdowns or who are right-at-this-very-moment experiencing just what I am… the loss of love. So there will be more (perhaps broader?) on that too, of course. Because it’s real and right-now.
Inked has so many readers but not so many brave enough to fill in that little comment box and give your opinion back. I’d love to become a bit more of a community here at Inked… where we all share, with each other, our woes and our triumphs and our quirky differences. Let’s face it, we are in desperately in need of a bit more community, aren’t we? God knows I am.
With Inked fast approaching its one year anniversary it’s time for it to take the next step into blog-land and it can’t do it without you.
So go on, I dare you, fill in the comment box… let me know what’s important to you this year. Let me know what sort of topics you’d like broached… what you feel like there should be more of (or less of)… because as much as this space is Mine, it’s Yours too.
