The Bear wants to tune a blog that is useful to his readers. You may remembered there w's a poll about the Bear's "voice," or persona.
Now there's a poll about whether you would like to see a more cuddly Bear with fewer topical pieces on controversial subjects, or a roaring, smiting Isaiah Bear who can tear 42 bad children on a single sortie.
When this blog first began, the Bear was keeping up with current events, but writing about Catholic gift shops and the like. Is it the Bear's imagination, or have things simply gotten crazier in the last year?
The temptation is to split the baby and vote both. And if you enjoy a mix, that's fine. It is never going to be just one or the other. It is probably more helpful for the Bear's purposes that, if you have a strong preference for one or the other, you tick that box.
There are millions of Catholic blogs covering the daily outrages. The Bear does not know what makes this blog a better source for that news than any other. There is only one real Bear, though.
Let the people speak.
