Reader choice: What do you want to know?

question_markReviewing the past year’s posts I realized I have been sharing a lot of information about me and the things I have been learning as I work through my own transitions. I think that’s fairly normal because one of the ways we learn is by teaching the material to someone else.

The two potential problems that may arise as a result are that you, as the readers, might not have any use for what I am putting out and you might be looking for information that I haven’t yet posted. No one has criticized any of my posts or topics – I think you are all too polite to do that – but the decisions have been mostly one-sided.

I am looking ahead to November and December posting schedules. November is National Novel Writing Month and December has all the end of the year holiday celebrations. These two months have a lot of activity competition so I like to know and have the probable topics outlined in advance.

This is a chance for readers to let me know if there’s a topic that relates to making a life transition that you would like to see a post about. It does not have to be a completely new topic; it could be a tangent to or an extension of a previous post.

I also have several topics that I have been holding for a while that may be of interest as well, and feel free to mention any of these; such as:

- the mid-life first apartment

- choosing and hiring an accountant, or attorney, or estate planner

- finding and talking to a car mechanic and other service providers

- living as a newly single adult

So what would you like to know more about as you move forward in your journey toward a successful transition to the rest of your life? Between now and the end of the month, let me know if there is a particular topic or subject you’ve been hoping to see. Post your topic or query interest in the comments or send them in an email by Oct 31 for this round.

I'd really like to hear about your NaNoWriMo progress as you make your way through it, assuming that you are participating this year. I think it's such a great event!

Oh, you want something hard; like the real and scary me. NaNoWriMo will be interesting since I will have to upload from a public computer.
