If You Had To Describe APW In An Elevator… by Meg Keene Ok. I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a long time, but was waiting for the right moment to do it. And this feels like the right moment, whhheeee! I’m starting to get busy figuring out what the next steps for APW. Some of those steps are things like wresting my soul back from bl-gger,* after the Rather Unfortunate Incident. Other steps are things like maybe getting some of APW on real live paper (I so prefer reading things in paper. Sometimes I rub the Sunday New York Times on my face and then lick it), and figuring out how to expand this conversation that we are ostensibly having about weddings into other things. That last step might be a little harder to take, but we live to dream. So. I was hoping you all might be willing to answer two questions for me in the comments, since I often find that with your outside-my-head view, you see the big picture of what’s going on around here a little better than me. Questions for your consideration: Why do you read this blog? If you had to sum up this blog in one sentence, what would that sentence be? I could do this over some closed-form survey, and I probably will throw a survey or two at you over the coming months. But I think this will benefit from your magnificent group brain. I’m really interested in hearing from loyal lurkers (yes, you can stay totally anonymous) because I find that you guys often read the site for surprising and thrilling reasons. Also, if you are NOT planning a wedding, could you especially answer these questions? Pretty please? And all you loyal lovely commenters must answer, of course of course of course (smootch). So really all I can say is please, please, please. It’s a big favor to me, but if it were possible for me to love you from the bottom of my little heart a little more, I would after you do this favor. But it probably isn’t possible. So there is that. *edited out in case they are WATCHING ME. They are so on notice. Meg Keene Founder & Editor-In-Chief Meg is the Founder and EIC of APW.
