A Response to Your Response

So, you remember that post where I asked you to let me know what you'd like to see more of on here? Here's the feedback I got:

You'd like to read more about:

     Me - why I am the way I am and stories from my life and the people in it. Funny or embarrassing
     moments were specifically requested. I've got so many of those, I'm not really sure where to start...

     What God's doing in my life.

     Opinions/thoughts on books, movies, culture, etc.

And 'I love everything you write. Just keep on.' (Thanks! That was nice to know)!

Thank you for the feedback. Stay tuned for new posts coming soon, and if you have any ideas, feel free to let me know.
