I want to try a new thing on the weekends, but first, I need to know how many people actually check this blog on the weekends. (My stats page shows that readership goes down somewhat on the weekends, so I’m not sure if I should blog on those days or give it a rest.) So part 1 of this post is a little poll:
If there is enough interest, I’d like to pose a discussion question each weekend. I’ve been getting great comments from readers, both in the comments section of the blog and also through private email. I wonder if we could expand the discussion to create more of a forum?
The main criterion for participating would be that you need to write your answers as a comment that others can read rather than emailing me privately. I understand that many folks don’t want to provide Blogger with their personal information, and you don’t have to. You can click “Anonymous.” But there is an even better way. If you click “Other,” you’ll have the opportunity to type in any screen name that you want without having to enter any other info about yourself. That way, others can respond to your comment by name.
So here goes: I’ve received some terrific comments from people about actions that they have taken. The question is, besides making changes in your personal life, tell us about an action that you have taken in the world (no matter how large or small) to spread awareness of a plastic issue, and what results have you seen from that action?
I look forward to hearing from you this weekend. And if you’re not reading this until Monday, feel free to chime in. We can all learn from each other.
