What I want to see....

* Any tool/widget/site that helps transform a blog's readership from anonymous numbers and IP addresses, into real people with real faces and real lives.

* More great blog series like Tune in Saturdays, Blogger Stories and Buzz Friday.

* Seth allow comments.

* Kathy Sierra start blogging again.

* PR firms stop emailing bloggers asking us to interview writers for magazines so that we can post about their latest article. Instead, I want to see those magazines reach out to bloggers to use them as sources so they can create BETTER articles.

* Every reader of this blog to get as much from what I write here as I get from you.

* Music companies allow bloggers to put a widget on their blog or Facebook page that allows them to play ANY MP3, and SELL that MP3, with the blogger getting a percentage of the sale. If I go to a friend's blog and like the song they are playing, I should be able to buy it right there, and my friend should get a cut of the sale. Terry? Erin?

* AdAge actually do something with the Power150.

* More readers realize that the comments they leave here are usually more interesting than the post they are commenting on.

* A marketing/social media conference with Laura Ries, David Armano, Mike Wagner, Jackie Huba, Joseph Jaffe, Ann Handley, Jordan Behan, CK, Josh Hallett and Karl Long as speakers/panelists.

* Every blogger be as good at creating value and a sense of community in one post as Arun does here.

* More bloggers that are willing to let it all hang out.

* Every reader of The Viral Garden that doesn't have a blog, start one today.

I want to see cats and dogs living together. Why can't we all just get along? ;-)

I want to see a blog rating method that works based on real links not just a link hidden behind a word or games where we try to see how many blogs we can get to link to us for no other purpose than linking to us.

Until then, guess I need to find a game. tomorrow is Saturday and I have not played one of those games in a month. My Technorati rating is stagnant at 323. :)

So you want every reader of your blog to become a blogger?

What if every single person in the world had a blog?

Which should I suscribe to - every single one?

I've only suscribed to a managable amount of blogs and I sometimes still got problems to read the most relevant ones.

Shouldn't only people that really have something to say start a blog?

IMHO yes.

a sappy wish, but make it I must: I'd like to see my momma, even just one more day.

lol.

I for one hope that at least one of your desires does NOT come to fruition. I don't think I can take any more "letting it all hang out" ;)

But who decides who has something to say? My point is I want everyone to have a voice, or at least a chance to find their own voice. I would rather have someone not blog because they tried it and didn't like it, than because they think it's a waste of their time. I waited till 2005 to start blogging because I assumed up till then that it was a waste of my time. One of the bigger mistakes I've made in the last few years.
