Tennis Ball on Frosted Lawn

Feedback is either that really shrill, paralyizing noise you hear when some innocent peep gets blown up beyond all recognition and thrown back in your face or the process by which future output becomes easier because you recycle successful past output to maintain quality and momentum. 

Since it’s the start of the year and the blog is about to enter its terrible twos, I’d like some feedback from you. There has to be some reason, topic, or quality of the blog that made you want to subscribe to the feed or by e-mail and I’d like to know what that is. 
Perhaps it’s a topic I cover regularly or rarely (look through the big list of “Theatres of War” to the right if you need to refresh your memory), or a style of post (the rants, the analysis essays, the “everyone else is just wrong and here’s why” exposés, the “here’s something old and cool you should read,”) or the personal stuff about me and my dogs.
The reason you ask for feedback is that it’s really hard to figuring these things out yourself. I (almost) always eat my own cooking, enjoy my own company and find myself increadibly charming and whitty! I don’t even mind my own farts. My success rate with critics isn’t nearly as convincing. 
So you can tell me to “eat shit“–an interesting form of feedback loop where the product of the anus is put back in the mouth, usually caused by boredom, territoriality, or some missing ingredient in the diet–or  “good boy” [click, treat] to get me to repeat behaviors you like. If there’s something missing you’d like to see more of or something there you’d like less of, here’s your chance.
Leave me a comment or shoot me an e-mail. You can do it!
