Back to the post I was congratulating myself about. I really shouldn't brag too much, since tonight's going to be quick and easy; in fact, most of the work is up to you guys! Since the People's Choice Awards are airing this evening, I thought I'd create my own little "Readers' Choice" poll.
Over the past few months of blogging, I've brainstormed all sorts of topics for future posts. Sometimes ideas come to me as I'm reading something for one of my classes that discusses environmental issues; sometimes, someone will ask me a question and I'll think, "Hey! I bet others are wondering the same thing." I've done my best to keep track of these ideas as they come. Even though I'm excited about all of them, I put a lot of time into each of my posts, so I want to make sure I'm covering topics that interest you, too!
Below is a list of potential post topics. Given 'em a look and then leave a comment or send me an e-mail at email@example.com to let me know what YOU want to read in 2013!
