Tell me what to write

firefoxscreensnapz0021I’m trying out a service called Skribit.  It’s this thing where readers can tell me what they want me to write about, and then other readers can vote those suggestions up or down (Digg-style).

They call it a "cure for writer’s block" but that doesn’t do it justice imho. My problem is the opposite of writer’s block. I can write stuff all day long, but I have no idea if it’s the stuff our customers actually want to hear about. Some customers contact me directly with questions. Our customer svc team gives me topics too.

But Skribit is finally a way for me to see how many other readers are interested in that topic. Suggest a topic for me to write about
