Two polls...

1)  Am considering quitting my day job and become a writer.    Good move, or bad move?
           What other Idol topics would you like to see covered?  What other non-Idol topics interest you?

2)  Am considering putting up audio only of my audition pieces.  How do y'all feel about that?  You've shared so much with me, I really want to share more with you!


  1. Maria, the link that follows is blogspots directions for adding a poll to your blog. I think it would be a good idea for you. I'm glad you're writing more. Now I'll tackle your recap post.


  2. Thanks Johnny! I will try to see if I can figure it out :)

  3. Have enjoyed reading the blog, but as someone who is trained to be and has tried to be a professional writer full-time, I would advise against it. Monetizing a blog is particularly difficult, and unless you have a degree in journalism or a similar study and pertinent experience, being hired as a full-time writer is no easy task! Also, I know you write your posts off-hand, but many of them have spelling, grammar and usage mistakes. I would correct those issues (including in this post - 'become' should be a gerund) before using your blog as a portfolio of writing work.

    Blog as a hobby, but not as a profession. Most of the writers I know, myself included, have "day jobs" and write when we can, for free or for very little money. Good luck!
