I’d like your input on something

Post image for I’d like your input on something

Of everything that’s happened since I launched Raptitude, what I’m most proud of is that I’ve attracted a such an intelligent and discerning audience. That flatters me to no end and assures me I’m doing something right.

I feel extremely lucky to be able to bounce ideas off a large group of particularly thoughtful people. I’d like to hear your thoughts about something.

I’ve been approached by major publisher asking if I’d thought about doing a book.

Something may or may not come of this, but I’ll be writing a book sooner or later anyway. Thematically, there are lots of places to go with it. Essentially Raptitude is about human evolution through personal evolution, but that includes a lot: living in modern society, contending with the human condition, courting habit change, honing quality-of-life skills, fluff-free spirituality, self-reliance, self-examination, practicing sanity in its various forms, and even making cookies.

So I have three questions for you. I’d appreciate your answer to any or all of them, as well as any other comments you might have.

1) Would you read a Raptitude book?

2) What is Raptitude about, to you?

3) What would you like to see in a book?

Even if you don’t normally comment — and I know the vast majority of readers don’t — I’d like to hear what you have to say about this.

Thank you. You guys are the best.

I just stumbled onto your site literally today, and am just bowled over by it. The posting about four words first caught my attention. You are obviously much younger than I am–and much wiser! I look forward to perusing the Archives. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot, get inspired to ponder life more deeply than I usually do.

One of the many pithy sayings of the late folksinger, Utah Phillips (one of my main culture heroes) was: Technology has replaced reflection. I think those four words say a whole lot about our current society. But you are using blog technology to help and inspire your audience to reflect and ponder. That’s a wonderful thing! Thank you!

As to the questions you posed in this post, I’m way too new to this blog to give definitive answers, except that I really am a book-oriented person and a printed version of your thoughts would be a great thing to have, and to give to friends. As for what a book might contain, I echo some of the thoughts from other commenters. If there are some kinds of ruminations that haven’t made it into your blog for one reason or another, maybe they’d fit better in print???

Again, thank you for what you’re doing!
