What are you looking for in a blog?

I'm just wondering, because if I am going to dedicate more time to this blog, I need to know what the people who come here want. So please copy and paste this into a comment, deleting the things you don't want to see and leaving the things you do. I'd really appreciate it, and you can even do it anonymously if you want. Thanks again!

I think a little bit of everything is okay. I noticed you haven't added or taken away any blogs in a long time. Alot of the blogs are obsolete unfortunately and there are some new ones to follow. When i was first diagnosed-this part of your blog connected me to other bloggers
:http://www.mela-know-more.org/,http://defyingmelanoma.com/,http://www.andycaress.com/,http://www.smelanoma.com/

These are just a few good ones to add maybe-thanks

Thanks so much for your comments. I have to admit that I use this blog as a way to keep up with my peeps, too, and I really do try to honor everyone who asks me to add them to my blog roll. Obviously, though, it's been a while since I went through and cleaned out blogs that are no longer cancer related or ones that haven't been updated in forever. Anyway, I did a little cleaning today. Hope this is better! Thanks again for your comments!

I have enjoyed what you've done so far. The only thing on your list that really would disinterest me was the beauty product giveaway, but I'm probably in a minority on that...

*cancer insights/experiences -

My boyfriend has melanoma and I look for your insights and experiences to help me "get in his head" in a way. Your writing opens the door to discussions that we have, or try to have. As a support person I feel lost in this journey. I'm always inspired by your wisdom. Thanks!

I was diagnosed in 2007, when I had a 4 month old baby girl at home - at least 3.5MM? deep (they didn't get the whole thing in a biopsy), at high risk for reoccurence, ulcerated, etc, etc. It was so terrifying, and I felt so grateful to read your posts and realize that so much of what I was going through, I wasn't alone. I am sitting here tonight, the whole family gone to sleep - working full time, full time school, thinking I have forgotten the precious lesson cancer taught - the one about friends and family being more important than any of this **BS**. Your Yoga post was incredibly timely, as are so many of your posts. I hope you see this - it is a whole month out - I am remiss in visiting this site lately - your posts are somewhat of a "counseling" session for me - so perhaps that is a good thing. Thank you for having the courage to face this and continue to update - on your good days, and even more so - on your bad ones. So - long story short - I personnaly don't care what you post - it is just great to hear from you :-).
