I was doing an inventory of of my blogs this morning to see which subject had prompted the most comments. The way I figure it the most commented on blog would equate to what people care about the most. It's a rough way to gauge the pulse of the world. And I say world because my site meter shows I have had visits from all over this planet.
Note:To my reader in New Zealand, drop me a note I would love to hear how my blog found you.

Give The City What They Want
This was about Macy's taking over the Chicago favorite Marshall Field's stores. I was in favor of sticking with tradition. The comments, mine included, were 6 to 4 in favor of Marshall Field's. As of this writing they are still Macy's and they have yet to get a penny from me.

NIU, I TOLD U SO
This was another blog about my thoughts on gun control. The comments were mixed with no clear answer what should be done. That is a pretty good representation of reality. Lots of talk, but little action to solve a big problem.
Number 1 blog, 21 comments.
When Idols Die or Just Get Old
This was my blog reviewing "Chicago Legend" Steve Dahl. Most of the comments leaned towards me being a boring jerk. Well, you can't argue with the numbers.
So, what have we learned by this?
- People care more about gun control than the return of Marshall Field's to Chicago.
- People care more about Steve Dahl than they do gun control.
- I need better ideas to write about.
