What do you think?

So, does this blog work?  Does it not work?

I created a Tumblr as an alternative to this blog, in hopes that it might be more traveled.

I want lots of people to vote, because the more people that vote, the more fun this whole thing is.

What am I doing wrong ? What could I be doing better?

Sparks

UPDATE!

Hello!  I was talking with @ShesAllWrite about this blog, and we both were thinking that Tumblr might be a more appropriate venue for this kind of thing.  I am going to try it out there and see if I can get some traction.  If you have already voted here, would you mind voting on the Tumblr page as well, and share it with your followers?  Thanks for any help.
