Who are you? What are you looking for here?

Earlier this year, I mused about what I've learned from writing this blog after hitting the five-year mark. Lesson 10 was that if you miss the chance to find out about your readers, you miss the chance to understand not only them, but your blog.

And while this blog is here to share news, updates and advice about communications and social media, from my perspective as a consultant, I've learned that readers come here for all sorts of reasons. The more I know about them, the more I know why I'm here.

You're also among my best sources. I'm fortunate that so many readers send me links, questions and updates; examples of what they're working on; ideas about what they're thinking about. Over time, all my tipsters have helped build this blog into a real workaday resource.

So let's do this: Who are you? What are you looking for here? What are you finding that helps you, and what would you like to see more (or less) of?  All that aside, what questions do you have about communications and social media--especially when it comes to making sure you don't get caught unprepared?  I expect we'll all learn a lot about each other from the answers you share.

I asked this question on The Eloquent Woman, my blog on women and public speaking, and many of the readers who responded used the opportunity to ask questions they had about speaking--so I hope you'll do the same and ask questions here, if you have them.  If you do, I'm likely to turn them into blog posts to answer your questions, so have at it.

I'm looking forward to your responses, and I appreciate having you here.

Check out don't get caught on Facebook, where I'm floating ideas and discussing them before they appear on the blog.  It's shaping up as a great networking community for communicators.
