Enough about me. What do YOU want to know about me?
I think I've reached an impasse.
I have writer's block.
Actually, I don't quite have writer's block, as I've started at least three blog entries over the past few days, but I can't seem to complete any of them. I'm not convinced that they are going to be interesting or witty enough. So I'll sit on them a while longer.
It is pretty pressured - trying to write a blog at least once a week. In order to keep up your fan base - to make sure they they don't forget about you - you need to produce. And it helps to produce interesting tidbits that people can tell their friends about... "oh, well I've heard that in Tanzania they...."
Since March 31st, 2006 I've produced 54 blog entries - if you include this one. Back last year, I would have never imagined that I could have been this productive. But the truth is I've enjoyed writing for you and for me. It helps me process what I'm experiencing, keeps you up-to-date with my thinking and activities, and even gives me brief glimpses of fame (of the one minute variety).
But now I'm reaching out to you. I'd like to know what you'd like to hear next. Is there some aspect of living in Tanzania, working in the developing world, raising a pair of three year-olds, managing a crazy household staff and even nuttier workplace that you'd like to know more about? Is there another angle you'd like to see me cover?
By writing back to me, I'll also be able to know who out there is listening. I know there are a lot of you who are silent. Most of you only respond directly to my e-mail, rather than via comments on Blogger. That's fine. Just let me know you are there and what you want.
I'll make you a deal. You request it, I'll write it. I'll try to make it interesting enough for everyone to enjoy. And I'll give you credit for the topic.
Thank you in advance! You are awesome.
And as an extra treat... here is a photo of Jaden and Rowan on their 3rd birthday, January 8.
