It hasn’t been a roaring success, but LBMango on LiveJournal has a twist on the questions meme that I like:
Everyone has things they blog about.
Everyone has things they don’t blog about.
Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don’t blog about, but you’d like to hear about, and I’ll write a post about it.
It may not work here, either, but what the hell. Let’s shake things up a bit– if nothing else, it’ll give me the chance to practice glib and non-responsive answers to difficult questions, in case I ever lose my mind and run for office.
(I blog about a wide enough range of things that it may be somewhat difficult to identify what, exactly, I don’t blog about. If you’ve been reading for a while, though, you’ve probably got some idea, or you can figure out a few candidate areas from comparing me to my colleagues here at ScienceBlogs.
(I should also note that the fact that I blog under my own name puts some constraints on the kind of questions I can answer. You can ask “What do you really think of [some specific colleague]?” but it’s not going to get a serious response. I may or may not be able to make not answering that amusing, or I may just tell you to piss off.)
