I am a little disappointed in my boys right now – despite my energetic attempts they don’t want to dress up as soil scientist for Halloween. (we can debate the issue of dressing up later but I don’t think I am going to hell for letting my kids dress up and walk around the block then go to the church to hand out candy to the community) Seriously, boys come on – don’t you want to be like Dad – they respond “no that’s not cool we want to be a tiger and bird”…ahhh fatherhood.
In a recent blog a friend gave me some advice on increasing my readership. The advice included sticking with one theme or finding your niche and running with it…now that could be a problem. You see I am random at times, no two days are the same. There are times when I want to share life, opinions, family, the boys, work and running. I understand that not everyone cares about phosphorus absorption in biochar therefore I do refrain from blogging about my research – you’re welcome.
If you read my blog tell me what you think my voice is?

personally i like the “randomness”. if you recall, i also stated that exact reason was probably why my blog wouldn’t ever be wildly popular. (the exception to that rule would be if you become famous by some other means and then people want to know about you because you’re famous)
but certainly you can increase your readership (beyond just me and your mom) with the random topics, because i’m sure you have more friends than just me and your mom. 🙂
otherwise though, i do like to hear about family/life stuff, or your perspective/wisdom on ministry stuff.

I suspect that it would greatly increase your hits if you did post about biochar research. I only found you because of a Google alert for a reference to biochar. Speak up.
