So a while back I wrote a fan post gauging interest in the series that would become my Factgrinders, and, I think that really worked out well.
So I'm going back to the well and asking readers about stuff I could write which they would read.
I'm still going to continue with technical breakdowns, judo chops, and anatomy of a wrestling move type stuff, and Factgrinders, and wrestling event coverage, but variety is the spice of life, so I'd like to mix things up.
I might still throw in an occasional tongue-in-cheek thing as the opportunity presents itself, but nothing consistent, because being consistently funny is just about the hardest thing out there.
I'm going to throw out a few ideas, and readers are more than welcome to call out stuff they'd like to read as well:
- Wrestling on film: reviews and discussions of amateur wrestling's appearances in movies/TV. This could be very funny, but I wouldn't have to try too hard. (also, no pseudonyms)
- I'm thinking about starting some sort of podcast on my own, but I'd like to do something unique and interesting, I'm not sure which way to take that one. I hate the way my voice sounds in recordings, but I also think I have interesting stuff to say.
- As I'm starting to take my writing more seriously, I'm trying to venture into less-wrestling-ey things which I could put on this site that play into my strength as a researcher, but once again I'm not sure how to pursue that. Or wrestling things which take on serious issues.
- I'm not going to do a ranking of the best MMA wrestlers in fighting, I've explained why before, but I MAY do a ranking of the greatest ever MMA wrestlers who were never wrestlers.
As always, thanks for being a wonderful commenting community. I never would have bothered starting to write (here or for the other places I have written for) were it not for the great feedback (usually positive) that I have received from the very beginning on this site.
