Happy Saturday, everyone. I've got a million important yet totally boring things I have to do today, so I'm going to skip writing a long article. However, I have a few that I've been working on for next week that should be pretty good.
Right now I kinda write the blog on blind faith. I don't really know exactly what people expect from the site - I just try to balance between useful advice, funny stories, and a bit of what's going on in my life at the moment. My goal is for this to be the site you check every day, having no idea what you might be reading about next, but knowing that it will be interesting. But I'm curious - is there anything you'd like to see different around here? Is there a topic you wish I'd write about? Do you want more of any one type of post? Less? Is there anything about the site that's really annoying (yeah, yeah... I put at Home button at the top)? If you have any suggestions, I'd really love to hear them either in the comments here or by e-mail.
The blog is becoming more and more successful in terms of traffic. I average about 3000 visitors per day if you include the huge spikes from the more popular stories. It seems like we have a good portion of the people who comment on the blog, which is what I personally think makes it really interesting. I'm really grateful for every person who reads and/or replies in the comments here. I read every comment, and I'm flattered that people take the time to post them.
I mentioned the idea a few times in the past, and people seemed to like the idea of having forums here. I do too, so here they are.
The forums should make things a lot more interactive around these parts. You can ask for advice, post your own stories and tips, or just chat with all the other cool BTYB readers. With your help, I'm going to make it into the only forum on the internet dedicated to living an awesome life.
I'll be checking the forum several times a day, and probably posting every day too. Stories that are too short (or that I'm too short on time for) will also go there. So help me get some momentum by registering for an account and posting something interesting!
