Last month, I published a post about Jamaican Patois. The response was overwhelming. Naturally, there was an increase in trolls, but more importantly, I connected with a lot of great people I might never have reached otherwise.
Since then, I’ve received a lot of commendations on older posts, special requests for new ones, and recommendations for topics readers would love to hear my thoughts on.
This isn’t a new phenomenon.
I once built an entire website because my college friends kept asking me for advice on how I aced school. Earlier this year, I wrote a 5-piece short story series after receiving a special request from a reader.
Last month, I went hiking in New Hampshire based on a recommendation from a WordPress reader. I then vlogged about all 8 trails I did, because my Junior Editor has long suggested I try it. And this month, I’ll be checking in with you guys on my NaNoWriMo progress, also by special request from a reader.
I won’t be building any new websites to dedicate to a topic, or taking any more trips this month, but I would love to hear more from you guys about topics you want to see me explore on my blog.
Maybe you read a post I wrote, and walked away with questions I could answer via a followup. Maybe you’ve seen something in the news lately, and wondered what my stance is, based on social justice posts I’ve written in the past. Or maybe you’re just wondering what kind of advice I might give about an issue we both share.
Whatever your reason, feel free to drop your suggestions in the comments below or shoot me an email, instead.
I’m all ears!
