Thanks for your patience this past week. I didn’t post much of anything because of all the last-minute wedding planning. If only more vendors offered elite status — but perhaps that’s not the kind of business where you want repeat customers.
Now that I’m back, it’s time for the second of four contests to thank all my readers for sticking around these past couple years. The first contest asked for general ideas about what resources on this blog you found most useful. Now I want to know what kind of role you’d like Megan to have. Some bloggers don’t mention their family at all. Some involve them a great deal. I usually just make casual references if she happened to be along for the ride, but I have also made the odd attempt to get her to write some of her own pieces. Usually I don’t succeed because she’s so busy.
Megan has brought up the topic on her own this time. Since she isn’t planning a wedding and she is almost done with her architecture licensing exams, she would like to write something for the blog on a semi-regular basis, if only to make sure I have more time to spend with her.
Is there something that you think Megan would be good at discussing? Maybe she could play to her formal training and talk about architectural attractions in different cities. Or she could emphasize our differences and give a less frequent traveler’s perspective on what I do (she only flies about 20,000 miles a year and hates the idea of churning cards). Maybe there’s no good topic, and you prefer that I keep things the way I have them. Or something else entirely.
Leave your suggestion in the comments before Thursday at 8:59 PM Pacific Time (she goes to bed early). I’ll have Megan read them all and pick the one she likes the most. The winner will get a $100 Amazon gift card and a copy of Chris Guillebeau’s book The $100 Startup.
