ILMK 3rd birthday check-in
ILMK recently celebrated its third birthday, and I thought I’d check in with you on how it’s going.
This isn’t the first time I’ve polled you, and it does help me think about what to do. I still need to write it the way I write it, but knowing what you like does help me focus. In addition to quality, entertainment, information, and yes, quantity matters to me, I really value diversity. I want to make sure that all of the Kindle store subscribers feel like they are getting their ninety-nine cents a month’s worth, and I figure one way to do that is to keep switching things up. If you aren’t crazy about something I do one day, hopefully you like something in the next couple of posts.
I’d appreciate your feedback on these, but as always, feel free to comment as well. If you’d like your comments kept private, please let me know in the beginning of each one.
Update: one of my regular readers and commenters, Roger Knights, suggested that I point which of these allow for multiple answers. Generally, in computers, circles will indicate only one choice, and squares will indicate multiple choices allowed.
This goes back to when some car radios had big round knobs for the preset buttons. You couldn’t push in two buttons and listen to two stations…so those circles are also called “radio buttons”.
Squares are intended to emulate the checkboxes on a paper form.
That’s pretty standard in computers, although not everybody follows the convention.
Thanks again for taking the time to answer these! I don’t want to ask too many questions, or I find that the responses drop off. If you’d rather just make a comment, or you want to address something I haven’t asked, feel free.
