Dusting off this blog....and a question for YOU!

Yeah, I know, I know. I've been a slacker at blogging the past six months. But I'm getting ready to dust this thing off, and relaunch The Swivet. I'm getting the itch to blog again, and sometimes Twitter's 140 characters aren't enough to have a genuine conversation.

So my question to you is:

What do you want to read about?

Talk to me, folks!

Elves. Mostly elves.

Katja Rinne said...

I'd prefer zombies. Neat real life stories would be cool as well. Combining both even better.

Matthew Cheney said...

Spam! And eggs! And spam!

Bratty said...

Human sexuality!

Redleg said...

Why choose? I say: zombified elves.

Miriam Forster said...

Kittens? And....um.... you know. Bookish things. I like books. :)

LilySea said...

Shucks, I want to hear everything you've learned about publishing over the course of your entire career.

That should narrow it down for you...

Jamie Wyman said...

Your mom!

Oy, I've reached that point of "tired" where I answer every question with "your mom". Ignore me.

Michelle said...

Oh, fine, I'll be the only serious one: What have you learned in each of the various positions you've held in publishing? Bookseller, agent, digital publishing, etc. And how each of those things has helped with later positions. Sort of like cumulative experience.

Or you could blog about rampaging unicorns. Goring elves while trampling zombies.

Nita said...

Stinkyboy, cats and pets in general. Also food, but not pet food. People food. Oh, and books. You seem to know a thing or two about that as well.

Swimming pools.

LeeAnna Holt said...

Why pick? Do everything! I'd read it no matter what.

Lori Verni-Fogarsi said...

My book! Specifically, why you love it so much!

Starving Author said...

I'm hoping you branch out into recipes. Or exposés of publishing industry giants. In the same post.

JenD said...

personally i could do with a pep talk.
i've missed your posts, and your guest bloggers. i just re-read brett sandusky's reality check about publishing and i do in fact feel better.

Magaly Guerrero said...

Zombified elfish kitties experiencing an existential crisis, which they are trying to hide by blogging about publishing trends, but fail miserably because all posts focus on how they no longer enjoy things they used to love.

Or pep talks, guest bloggers like Brett, and your legendary tips on how to do better while staying realistic, for like JenD, I miss those, too.

I'd be interested in whether you think the publishing industry has picked itself up and started to recover from the double whammy of the Great Recession and the aedvent of e-books.

Steampunk----- REALLY GOOD steampunk - the kind that is mixed in with real history, but has just enough of a twist to make you go hmmmmmmm...what if? The kind of steampunk that uses words of 3-4 syllables, and is not full of vampires and zombies....

I loved your blog post here http://theswivet.blogspot.com/2009/02/self-promotion-or-warning-being.html that discussed the history of self-promotion. Would love to see more posts like these
