The answer is great. Traffic is increasing all the time and Tearfree’s influence is such that after Paula praised her shoes, this online store completely sold out of them. If things keep going as they are, Tearfree will be able to leave the world of academia and blog full time, all thanks to her loyal readers.
Readers have also been frank about informing Tearfree what they like and dislike about this blog. They’ve told her what they want to see covered and Tearfree has collated the results.
1. Softwood Lumber Blogging
This hot topic was the overwhelmingly number one choice. Nothing else came close. Readers told Tearfree: “You are the most fabulous softwood lumber blogger ever,“ “No one does softwood lumber blogging like you do,” and “You straddle this border dispute like a trade professional!” Tearfree has heard you and she promises more softwood lumber blogging than ever.
2. Jack Bauer and 24 Blogging
Tearfree is far from the only Jack Bauer fan around but readers value her unique perspective on putting Jack’s philosophy to work in daily life. Tearfree is committed to giving you as much Jack Bauer as she possibly can.
3. James Blunt Blogging
A bizarre write-in since Tearfree has never blogged about this singer before. Perhaps it’s because he has the same initials as Jack Bauer, or maybe it’s because before he became a soulful crooner, he used to be a captain in the British Army, but, while Tearfree understands the appeal, she regrets that her musical knowledge is limited and she cannot commit to regular James Blunt blogging at this point.
4. Koolaid Mummy Blogging
You want more although you are divided on how mean Tearfree should be. Some readers want Tearfree to go for the jugular and target the A-list Mummy bloggers while others want more gentle commentary.
5. You Know Who blogging
Readers said they want as much as they can get of our Most Awesome Rockstar Mummy Blogger award winner. Tearfree is committed to providing frequent links to both the satirizer and the satirizee.
6. Common Sense Parenting Blogging
Readers want tips on how to pull together an emergency science project in five hours as well as common sense advice on how to shut up the screaming brats at the next restaurant table when you’ve left your own kids at home so you can enjoy a child-free night out.
7. Current Events Blogging
Busy mothers requested updates on the day’s burning issues be it troops in Afghanistan, Quebec politics or global warming.
8. Shoe Blogging
Readers and Paula want to be kept up to date on Tearfree’s shoe collection.
9. Comments, comments, comments
Readers love the comments section most of all. They want to hear from Jacy, Alison, ninegrambrain, littlepinkcar, Granny, Randy, Simon, Paula, Ryan and even anonymous. Tearfree encourages everyone to post. She is committed to protecting your anonymity and pseudonymity unless you issue death threats.
Tearfree will be back on Tuesday after the long weekend and will celebrate her three week blogging anniversary by presenting a detailed mission statement.
Enjoy your Victoria Day, Fête de Dollard, or plain old regular weekend. And see you all next week.
