It has come to my attention that there are people out there reading this site, some of you spending a good deal of time here. I appreciate that. Nevertheless, I often feel like I'm talking to myself (although I don't think that there is anything necessarily wrong with that). As I am currently at something of an impasse, I would appreciate any kind of feedback regarding the possible future direction(s) of this site. What is it this draws you here? What is it that bores you or makes you want to run away? Do any of you agree or diagree with anything that I'm saying? I spent a great deal of effort picking out the links on the right sidebar; does anybody find (any of) them as interesting as I do? My goals for this blog are ambitious (if only moderately so); I would like to reach out beyond whatever narrow social circles I would move in, constrained by earthly geometry and my own sloth. So if I could get such responses without direct solicitation, I won't have to bore any of you with posts like this one in the future. Thanks again.
