Bill Leslie's Carolina Conversations

Tar Heel Topics

Posted April 26, 2011

After taking a respite from Carolina Conversations I'd like to re-energize the blog. Could I enlist your help?

What topics would you like us to cover in the coming weeks and months? What topics would you like us to avoid?

Here are some ideas. Do you like any of these and if so which ones?

(1) Historical snapshots - red letter days in NC history
(2) Best vacation spots
(3) Best new restaurants
(4) NC baseball towns - minor league magic
(5) Funny nicknames
(6) Pet peeves
(7) Things that make you feel guilty
(8) Best summer camps
(9) Best B&Bs
(10) Best breakfast in NC
(11) Best coffee in NC
(12) Favorite place to take a picture
(13) Best barbecue
(14) Best steak house
(15) Best vegetarian cuisine
(16) Best burger place
(17) Best performing arts center
(18) Best state park
(19) Best hiking trail
(20) Best beach

    My head still shaking side to side! I need to quit talking!

    How about something like: if you were hired by the state tourism board to come up with a slogan or campaign for why people should visit or move to North Carolina, what would you say?

    I was hoping you'd finish the profiles of the ten oldest towns that you started way back. As a historian I found them fascinating.

    Another interesting topic would be to ask "why do you like calling North Carolina home"?

    Those are my picks for future blogs!

    I like 4, 11 and 14 but they would all get interesting responses.

  • LMRA Apr 26, 2011

    I like them all too!

    How about where do the blog readers live? If you're from out of state, where did you live in NC? Where would you move back to? If you live in NC, would you like to live in a different part of the state and why? What's your favorite season in NC? If you were trying to convince someone to move to NC, what are the most important 3 things about the state you would tell them?

    You forgot one, Bill.
