Having a Little More Fun on the Street

by Mallary Tenore Tarpley

A friend from Poynter today said the list of books I included a few posts back was good, but serious. Every once in a while, I should include a book for the fun of it, he said. The book he suggested is called, “The Yiddish Policemen’s Union,” a mystery novel with lyrical writing. He ended his e-mail to me by saying, “Have fun.”

So that got me thinking … maybe I need to have more fun with this blog. The past month or so has been an experiment. I started this blog and have enjoyed regularly writing and getting feedback from others, but I want to make sure “Word on the Street” is as enjoyable for readers as it has been for me. I tried seeing which posts readers liked best: The post about Martha, the crazy pool lady, and the one about emoticons seemed to generate the most comments.
So, let me know. What would you like to see more of on this blog? Videos, more photos, a broader range of story topics, shorter posts? Give me some ideas!
