A Thanks to You, and a Question

September 23, 2008 at 1:30pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Good morning, folks. I have to go to South Dakota today to ref a couple soccer games so I only have a couple minutes to write this. I just want to issue a genuine Thank You to all of you folks for coming back day after day. Some of you have been here for years, some of you just arrived, and a whole host of you don’t even live in Lincoln but you keep coming back because you’re interested in Lincoln for one reason or another. Whatever your reason for being here, I thank you for coming.

I want to give a particular thanks to those of you who leave comments. The vast majority of the readers of this blog don’t comment, and I have no problem with that. (Some bloggers get ticked at the “freeloaders” who never leave comments. That’s not why I’m here.) Among those of you that do, I’m very pleased how little policing I have to do. It is extremely rare for me to have to censor or delete an inappropriate comment. In addition, most comments left here are relatively high quality. Have you seen how the comments on journalstar.com can deteriorate? Bleh.

The diversity of the readership of this blog never ceases to impress me. I can say just about anything and some of you will agree with me, some will disagree, some will sit smack in the middle, and almost all will come back tomorrow to see what’s next. How cool is that?

That leads me to my question. Work is keeping me very busy these days so I’m thinking about having some guest bloggers chime in now and then. Are any of you interested in participating in something like that? Think about the sorts of topics you might write about, the kinds of things you would like to read about, and so on. It could be one post or an ongoing series. It might be a niche topic or general interest. It just needs to be somehow related to Lincoln. Interpret that requirement however you like.

Anybody up for it?

I’ve always had a morbid curiosity about starting my own blog. If you think there’s anything I could contribute, just let me know.

This place definitely has the highest quality of discussion that I’ve ever encountered on the internet.  We have a wide variety of opinion here and it peacefully coexists. ... for the most part.

I’m the same as Fletch ... I’ve toyed with starting my own blog.  In fact, it exists, but I’ve never made a single post on it.

I would definitely be willing to contribute.

I’d probably be willing to do that.
