I think that’s the first time I’ve used the word ‘tentative’ in a blog post. I use it in daily life, but I don’t recall ever typing it before. My hands wanted to type tentacle, which I don’t understand, because I don’t use that word frequently either. Anyway, I keep reading about the virutes of a schedule for blog posts – it’s easier to maintain a blog that way, and your readers know what to expect from you when you have a schedule. Sooo, I’ve decided on a tentative schedule, which I solemnly swear I will do my best to stick to.
I’ll be posting at least twice a week, and possibly three times. Obviously, the focus of this blog is writing/reading/publishing/everything I’m doing or not doing to get my writing out into the stratosphere. I’m planning on a Writing Wednesday post, where each Wednesday I’ll either share something I’ve written (like an excerpt from my work in progress, a poem I’ve written, etc.), or something I’ve learned about writing, fantastic advice I’ve recently heard/read, and so on. Next up, I have plans for a Shoutout Sunday. (Which may possibly sometimes appear as Shoutout Saturday when football season returns and every ounce of my energy and attention returns to the Green Bay Packers. Where it belongs.) In these posts, I’ll share the best things I’ve read all week regarding writing, reading, self-publishing, agents, query letters, book reviews, etc. I read SO many fantastic articles each week that inspire and motivate me, so why not give them some love? And finally, we’ll have Off-Topic Tuesday, in which I give myself freedom to ramble about anything not writing or reading. I actually have a LOT of other interests – running and health, gluten-free eating, Disney, sports, video games, travel, cats, some tv, and tons more – so once a week, I request your permission to go there. That’s right: go there.
So there you have it, wonderful people: a blog post schedule I’ve come up with that I cross my fingers, toes, and teeth that I can stick to. I’ll try my best. I may occasionally post on the other days if something awesome (or awful?) comes up, but there will be two-three days a week when you can count on me to be here, talking my head off. See you soon!
