I was wondering what you all thought of the length and content of my columns. I know I often go long and possibly boring and I am wondering if you would prefer short columns over the longer more detailed ones.

I just looked at my latest one posted yesterday and wow....it's a lot to take in all at once. Would you prefer one column on just maybe...injuries....one on maybe...firings and hirings...and one on general stuff?

Or maybe one WWE and one TNA and Indy column as opposed to mixing the news together (This last column is all WWE but I often mix all important news from the promotions in one column). Now with ECW coming along, should I also have an ECW column?

Or do you not mind the longer columns and would rather have more news and not small chunks every now and then?

I do this for you guys and really want your suggestions and feedback so please jump in and tell me what you like and don't like and suggest any changes to my columns.

I listen to all and I will change my style if you guys would prefer it done another way.

I don't want you to miss anything but I also do not want to bore people with a really long column. I also have space limits and need to know what it is that you come to the site for...Is it news? Opinions? Rumors (You won't get many)... or all three?

Discuss. It will help me greatly.

Thanks! <img src="/images/graemlins/queen.gif" alt="" />

I think that everything is fine the way it is. I read everything that is wrote and don't have a need to get 3 or 4 separate columns when I am going to read them all in the first place. I think it comes down to what you want to write about what news you have at the time. If something happens an hour or so after you have already have posted the column, sure I would want to read that right away, but over all, it's whatever works best for you.

First off I LOVE you column's. I like shorter ones that come in more often then one large one and a week between or so.

However Any is better then none and I love your insight's into the industry and that I finally have someone that knows and loves wrestling to read!

I like them the way they are. I prefer the big columns, because that way you can get all the news at once - if something doesn't interest you, you just skip over it, rather then having to trawl through a bunch of smaller columns.

And keep all the promotions together. The TNA ones would often be teeny compared to WWE, so there's not much point separating them.

Ditto the above.

We don't want you to burn out and leave us back in the wrestling wilderness. So, please just do what you're capable of doing and don't push yourself more than you have too. If you give us more, sure we'll love it, but do you really need the extra pressure? I think you'll find we're all very happy with the way things are just now.

Thanks Patty

I love the long columns and sometimes when you say at the end of them that you are sorry you rambled on again, I'm thinking that wasn't long enough.

The columns are very informative and it doesn't seem like you are reading drivel and wishing for it to end. It kind of sucks when you get to the end and think its over? Thats it? It was only 5 pages today. Man she must be slipping. lol.

Love the long columns, Queen. Keep 'em coming.

I just wrote another and went over the suggested word limit. I just can't DO 700-900 word columns!

I also don't want to do so many that people get mad when they get the newsletters telling them another column is posted.

Maybe I should send a newsletter weekly with all the links to columns I wrote that week if I wrote more than one?

That way, no one gets too many newsletters and yet they can go and see everything I wrote. but the idea behind the breaking news newsletters if that is it is...breaking news and I would hate to wait a week to send a newsletter telling people I posted a timely breaking news story six days ago.

Must ponder...feedback required...brain overload.

Your columns are brilliant. You always tell us what's what, and aren't afraid to say what you think. I don't mind long or short, as they are always interesting either way.Keep 'em coming!
