Help me help you! (Addendum)


In my eagerness to get the last poll out, I forgot to add a time-of-day option. This isn’t as important as knowing when you all prefer to see new posts, but it’s helpful when it comes to scheduling them.

Thank you, readers!


Help me help you!

In what is probably a vain (in every sense of the word) attempt to increase readership, I decided to throw a quick poll out into the universe. The more responses, the better! Comments are also heartily welcomed and appreciated.

You can also reach me via email through this nifty form!

As always, I look forward to hearing from you. One of the things I love most about the blogosphere (and, previously, the columnsphere) is the opportunity to interact with my readers. (That’s your cue to reach out and hit me up!)

I created a page with some information and guidelines on contacting me/submitting things for publication on the blog; you can access it here.

It’s feedback time, chiiiiildren!



I’ve published twenty-odd posts and have apparently picked up enough steam to receive a few spam comments, much to my delight and amusement. Now, I’d like to hear from all of you! What should I write about/post more of on this blog? I’ll keep doing what I’m doing, of course, but I feel like I could use some direction at this point. Also, who doesn’t love to share their opinion on the Intarwebz? I’ve enabled custom answers for this poll as well, and you can always leave comments with suggestions.

I’d like to do a few more vlogs, but I feel like I’m super-awkward on camera and only have the webcam that came with the laptop; therefore, whatever I produce isn’t likely to be very high-quality, and I want to provide you guys with high-quality stuff whenever possible.

I’m not opposed to writing a few fluffy posts here and there to lighten the mood, or even do a picspam every once in a while, because I know the content here can get pretty dark/dreary. On the other hand, I don’t want to stray too far from the original intent of this blog–to share what it’s like to live with major depressive disorder and PTSD, as well as what the therapy process has been like for me so far. I’ll probably also throw up a post with some stats about MDD and PTSD sometime in the very near future, because mental illness is a lot more common than people think. I believe that putting myself out there to add another “face” to the illness is important for diminishing the stigma, but hard facts are also helpful when framing mental illness in a larger context.

But instead of rambling at you about my future plans, let’s get on with the poll!
