Waste My Time

I love Drop 7. I have Angry Birds. My new obsession is Tiny Wings. What iPhone games do you love? (And for bonus points, what have they taught you about game design?)

Roll Call

Yesterday’s post demonstrates there are things that I don’t know. For example: May has thirty one days. I’d clearly intended yesterday’s post for the last day of the month. Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning and discovered that it wasn’t June 1st.

Today’s post is about another thing I don’t know: Who most of you are. There are a small handful of frequent commenters here, so I mostly know who they are. My experience tells me that there are a lot more lurkers than that. (My logs tell me the same thing.)

So let’s see if we can correct at least part of my ignorance. Who are you? How did you discover this blog? What’s your favorite desert? Answer in the comments below, or you are forever banished from this blog.

Two Down, Ten to Go

Just as I did at the end of January, I’m asking for reader feedback on the last month of blogging. What are your favorite posts from the past twenty-eight days? Your least favorite? What you like or dislike about them? Are there any patterns?

One Month Done

The first part of my twelve-step blogging program is complete: I posted every day in January. Looking back, I have some thoughts about it. I’ll share them soon; first I’d like to get yours. What are your favorite posts from the past thirty-one days? Your least favorite? Why? Are there any patterns?
