Asking For More **EDITED**

The polls mentioned below are tweaked now so that you can select multiple answers. Mrs. G has begged us all to take them again. Thanks!

Apparently I'm not afraid to just keep asking and asking for stuff. I promise to give back. I will write content at some point. Still sick, didn't think I'd stay at home today but the early morning hours sent a signal that I should do just that.

Now I'm up again and I'm asking you to wander over to the Colony and take some polls if you will (the top 2 entries have polls). The site is just over half a year old and Mrs. G would like to learn a little more about who's reading, what they like now and what they'd like to see in the future. (Thanks Jules for ringing in already in the polls and the comments, you are officially a champ.) I will warn you that some poll questions request multiple answers but the poll software doesn't yet allow for multiple answers. I'm not sure if that's possible to correct or when it will happen but in the mean time just follow your conscience or your bliss or the north star, some information is better than none, right?

Off to sip my ginger ale. Go wash your hands before you go to another site, I don't want you giving this to anyone else.


  1. i'm on it! feel better my sister.

  2. I'm hoping Mrs. G isn't scared of a little controversy and pulls the plug on the G-Spot. You can't please everyone but I really feel the discussions you initiate are important and hope they continue! Hang in there.

  3. I don't know if Mrs. G was scared by the whole deal but I have to say it knocked me for a loop. It's not that I didn't think something would come of it (nor is it that I use that sort of language with abandon - but you know that because you've been reading me for a long time) it's just that I didn't know that so MUCH would come of it and go on for so darn long.

    What I can say with surety is that Mrs. G makes her decisions from an informed place. She is working toward making the Colony self-sustaining financially, rather than supported by her, so she's going to have to make editorial decisions to maintain viability for that goal. If the G-spot is going to jeopardize that goal I wouldn't for a moment disagree with her choice to cut it. I don't know, though, if that will be necessary, we'll just have to wait and see.

    In the mean time I am fucking riveted by the polls and the comments on them. I'm learning a whole stinking lot about the Colonists and I love it.

  4. Hey Kizz - I'm also a WC reader (and talking to Mrs. G about possibly writing on working women issues) and I too hope that you don't take the comments to heart. The greatest thing about the WC is the range of writing and you can go (or not go) into rooms as it works best for you as an individual. There should be room for every woman at the colony. Keep writing.

  5. Wenderina, thanks for coming over here to throw your support behind the column. It's hard not to take them to heart but I can remind myself that if I take the bad stuff personally I have to take the good stuff personally, too. I haven't let it stop me...yet, just taking it one day at a time at this point. Looking forward to reading you!
