Write This Blog

So, if you had the opportunity to come up with a new blog that would be featured on Philly.com and in the Philadelphia Inquirer, what would it be about?

What issues would it mine, what neighborhoods would it mind?

What is missing?

Are you satisfied with random playlists and fight songs. I'm not.

With the new year, it's resolution time, and one of mine is to make this blog work better, more like it used to be. I don't mean Back to the Future -- I don't think I'm doing full-time Blinq any time soon, but something more dynamic.

Lots of folks here have ideas what the blog could spend its energy on, but I want to hear from those who keep clicking here, hoping to find a light on, an idea percolating, some essential and surprising links.

So, again --  if you had the opportunity to come up with a new blog that would be featured on Philly.com and in the Philadelphia Inquirer, what would it be about?

Leave a comment, drop an email at blinq@phillynews.com. I'm seeking the wisdom of the crowd.
