Over the last week, I've done a much higher percentage of personal posts than reviews, and the response has been unmistakable. More people read when I'm musing and talking about comics-related stuff than doing straight-up reviews. I'm not sure this will change overall--I really like reviewing comics and graphic novels--but I do think it's a good idea to up my percentage of posts that are things other than reviews.
Trouble is, I sometimes have a difficult time coming up with topics for these posts. Seriously. I can get into a discussion with friends about whether or not Batman will die in the upcoming film, and then blog a post about that topic, but I often have a difficult time just dreaming up subjects in a vacuum.
So with that in mind, I went and did the (arguably not-so) brilliant thing: I created lists of things to talk about at near points down the road. I've started with favorites:
- graphic novels
- comic books
