Tell Me Something I Don’t Know
March 10, 2009 73 Comments
It’s about that time. No, not that time, but the time where I listen to your feedback and ponder possible changes. Many of you are good about giving me honest criticism, and I greatly appreciate that. Valued reader “u suck a$$” recently gave me something to chew on with these rather insightful words: “GO DIE IN A FIRE U DUMB ASS CUM DUMPSTER N*GGER TITS N*GGER TITS BITCH WHORE FUCK HOLE I CAN HAZ 50 OH WAIT I DO.” Even if you can’t provide a high quality assessment as detailed as that, your opinions are still beneficial to me. Today I’d like to cover two things, one I am curious about and one that has been suggested to me more than a few times. First I’ll tell you why I’m asking then you can either give me your feedback via a comment or a simple click in the polls located at the end of the article. If you’re one of those annoying overachiever types, feel free to do both.
Topic #1: Redundancy between Bungie.net, hbo, and HMB
Often times I choose to pass on content that I feel is worthy simply because it has already been covered on Bungie.net and halo.bungie.org. I tend to assume anybody who reads Hawty McBloggy also reads at least one of those sites simply because content is Halo-focused and I am the smallest site of the three. So first I am going to ask you about your reading habits to let me know if I am not carrying stories I should be or as confirmation my decisions about this subject matter in particular have been correct.
Topic #2: To Twitter or not Twitter, that is the question
One of the more common requests I receive involves Twitter. I tried it for a one week period and found it too similar to what I already do. Plus, I have diarrhea of the mouth where their character limit is not conducive to how much verbal vomit I feel the need to spew. Apparently I’m big on making assumptions because I also have been going with the thought that if someone Twitters, they probably use a feed reader and I already have two active feeds so Twitter is not necessary on top of that.
So now it’s poll time. Thanks in advance for any opinions and/or constructive criticism you have to offer.
