Algorithms aren’t always reliable.

TikTok usually shows me exactly what I want to see. Medium gets it right about half the time. Facebook showed me an ad featuring Cheez-Its on a woman’s feet after I mentioned buying cheese crackers for my son, so the Zuckster’s team needs to get it together.

See, I wasn’t kidding. I buy Cheez-Its for my son so he can snack on them after school, not so I can throw them on my feet. If I ever cover my feet with snacks, I’m using the generic crackers from Dollar Tree. I’m on a budget.

Anyway, algorithms do their own thing sometimes, which means I can’t always find content that interests me. I have a variety of interests, but I especially love reading about health, mental health, food, parenting, cats, meditation, spirituality/religion, and self improvement (yeah, yeah, I know — that’s a controversial topic here).

I also love personal essays and memoirs. I enjoy learning more about others, and I’m interested in your experiences.

Fiction is okay, but I’m more of a nonfiction fan. I don’t know why. I’ve been like this for as long as I can remember, and I’m not mad about it.

That doesn’t mean you can’t link me to your fiction book or a made-up story you wrote on Medium. I might still like it. I borrow the occasional thriller from my local library and enjoy reading books with my kids.

Actually, now that I think about it, my youngest two kiddos prefer nonfiction as well. That might be my fault. My oldest reads a mix of books, including poetry.

Now that you know a bit about me, I’d love to learn more about you. Share links to your favorite work in the comments below so I can check it out when I get a chance. You can share your own work or someone else’s stuff — or a mix of both if you prefer.

Link me to a book you’re selling. Send me some of your favorite Medium articles. Share a personal essay you wrote. I want to support my fellow writers.
