Two years

So, I've had this blog for two years since Monday. To me, it's hard to strike a balance between "too much information" and "too obscure;" lately I've only been writing when the material is better suited to blogging than the written page (I also dislike addressing my readers too often or asking people to leave comments, but in this case I make an exception). To take a page from CPM's book, I'd like to get some reader feedback: are there any particular topics you would like me to write about? I can write about stupid jokes I hear, literature I read, things I find online, or I could give bad poetry another shot (...nah). Anyway, in the absence of feedback you should expect the same sporadic quality from me that I've been giving you... for free!
Did you know that Boston Harbor Light station is the only lighthouse in America with a keeper? So much for my dream of becoming a lighthouse keeper (source).

I like everything on your blog! I don't think you're anywhere near the TMI line.

I think just writing what you feel the most passion about on any given day is the best.

My questions for you are, what kind of reader feedback would you like? Pat on the back? Sympathy? Suggestions to improve your life?

I think the best comments are those that acknowledge a shared feeling with the writer and provide insight on how to cope with that emotion? Or answers to questions that the post brought up. Sympathy is nice, but usually unhelpful.
