Good Morning everyone! I hope we're all greeting a decent morning without serious issues, although I see that isn't the case for everyone out there.
Weather has not been kind lately, eh? (As I gaze upon streets not plowed in 2 days)...
I bring this topic for serious discussion and a serious look at things. I hope everyone can take it that way because I think it needs to be hashed out
a bit and things plopped on the table of consideration for all to see and read together.
What Topics do you WANT to see Threads about?
It may seem a silly question..but I assure you it's not. As one of ATS's committed writers and contributors, I'm no expert here but I think I have
a good sense for what the challenges are on our (writer) side of things.
When I start my day for instance, for the longest time, I've tried to get 2-3 stories posted with meaningful commentary during the morning and then,
perhaps more over the afternoon or evening ..depending on news cycle and how many stories looked worthy of the effort to share.
An odd thing has come to happen tho...and this is where I/we/ATS Writers need YOU ..and YOUR HELP!
Like many, I have hundreds of bookmarks in just my News/Events folder alone. Each of them represents a WHOLE new range of topics, every day. Most, a
few times a day in updates. In another folder, I have a good number dealing with odd, weird, funny or just plain whacky stories from Onion comedy to
stuff that SHOULD be Onion but really did happen.
Now, I check a fair # of these every day and I have made that my daily routine for a few years now. The issue and question? What to share?? The Odd
thing has been a drop in activity or feedback in knowing what topics are appreciated and wanted for more stuff ..and what just kinda fall flat and
plop like a turd on a marble floor.
So how about it, fellow readers? Can you take a moment and seriously consider this issue to help a bunny out? Maybe...help a few dozen other writers
out here too? Perhaps..even help yourselves out by helping to choose the material you most want to read about?
I can't speak to anyone else and their reporting/writing/research styles. I can, however, say I'll refer back to this thread if it gets a decent
response ..and check from time to time on what people say they DO want to see for topics and subjects. None of us write for no one to read it or to
think it sucks ...if only there were better ways to know what the audience most wants?
Thanks for those who took the time to read this through ... I hope writer and reader alike may give thought and help improve this community we all
know and love so much.
