What do my readers want to hear about?

I have been trying to find some niche in the blogger market that needs to be filled. Charles Smith of the Of Two Minds referred to me as a "polymath" in an email to me. (I had to look up the word. It means a person of great learning or "Renaissance Man." As in, see Leonardo Da Vinci.) It was quite a compliment, but I am probably more of a "jack of all trades and master of none" than a true expert in any given field. Except for the game of chess, of course -- where I really did become a National Master by USCF standards. But if I wanted to try to do a regular column about chess, I would create another blog (not that I won't at some point in the future).

So my question to you, my 24 regular readers (Karl, Teri, Charles and anyone else reading) what answers to life's great questions do you want answered? What news stories are you most following? What would you like me to write about?

Hmm, well I find financial stuff interesting. And I like the update on Oklahoma too. Still have cousins down there, so gotta keep up on the news.

As far as a niche, I've found that having lawyers talk about the legal system and the way that it really works is very interesting. My business law instructor was a lawyer and he had a different take on the system than an academic would have.

I don't really follow the news any more, so I can't help you there. We downsized to bare minimum as we could tell that we would not be able to hang onto the house if the job market tanked again. I'm not a Democrat any more, so it is interesting to read that side of the political spectrum. Don't know if this is a lot of help, but I do enjoy reading your blog.
