I've been blogging here for over a year now, and I'm desperately curious as to what you guys think of this little corner of the internet. I'm with Gretchen Rubin on the merits of gold stars, and I would love your feedback! I've created polls to find out your opinions on a few questions I'm wondering about. (If you're lurking in Google Reader I think you'll have to click through to my actual site; please come visit!) Feel free to leave a comment and let me know if there's anything else on your mind. Once you take the polls, I'll have access to the results but I won't know who YOU are--so leave a comment letting me know you took it (an a way to get in touch with you if I don't know you personally), and you'll be entered in a giveaway as a token of my thanks! The polls will close on Tuesday September 4, so you can spend your Labor Day fruitfully sharing your mind here.

For my first ever giveaway, I'll be sending one lucky reader a copy of the amazing book Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall, Denver Moore, and Lynn Vincent. This book made me laugh, cry, and think differently about my interactions with people I meet, and I would love to share it with you. I'll use a random number generator to figure out who gets the prize.

So now, without further ado, the polls!

Thanks for contributing your two cents! As I look to the future of this blog and getting more involved in certain blogging communities, it definitely matters to me what my readers like and where they want me to go. If you're selected as the winner I'll be in touch soon!
