I need feedback! Below are a few questions and I would LOVE some responses…be as verbose or concise as you like. What I end up doing here is dependant upon your answers! (yes, I know this is late…sorry)
Soul Eater update: I’m going to be following the ‘Late Night’ subbed version of the show. So yes, episode 02 has been released in regular version RAW, I’ve watched it and it was hawt. As much as I want to blog it, I’m waiting until Thursday/Friday when the LN version comes out and gets subbed. Feel free to go elsewhere for quick and easy Soul Eater information, but I can guarantee that you won’t regret sticking with me for the ride…I’ve got a lot planned.
Anyway, on to the questions:
- I expected to pick up 3-4 shows this season, but so far I’ve only got Soul Eater and Nabari no Ou (and I’m co-blogging Nabari with Extrange, so it only counts as a half). I’m willing to do one of two things: a) pick up one other show that isn’t already being blogged (and blog it extensively), or b) do a “Friday Ramble” style post where I briefly cover 2-4 random shows every week. Which would you prefer to see? For either option, please list 2-3 shows you’d like to see get attention.
- Extrange and I really hate doing summaries…I’ve got that all covered and worked out as far as Soul Eater goes, but I really don’t want to steal those ideas and apply them to Nabari. So Nabari fans, what would you like to see in our posts? If you say summary, we’ll stab you…no joke.
- This one’s just for me: how important are images to you in a post? Do you like/need a million pics? Do you prefer large pics with captions, the 6-images per picture deal, or thumbnails that you can enlarge?
- And last, I don’t blog to hear my own voice. I write in the hopes that something I said will spark a discussion amongst readers or at least motivate them enough that they’ll post a giant comment or a ‘that sucked’ or ‘that rocked’. How do you feel about posts where reader participation is a central component? Would you rather have slabs of content that you can read and digest, or content that is more of a frame/motivator to get readers to flesh out the content with discussion?
I know that looks huge, but the questions themselves are fairly simple. For those of you who read and leave, this is the one time that I would really love for you to go the extra mile and let me know how you feel/what you want. I honestly don’t want to waste my time either putting out content that is boring or generic, or trying to cook up creative ideas when you don’t even want them. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
