trying to develop a blog schedule  

I want to do a thing. I want to develop a blog schedule, so like on Tuesdays or whatever I post a Recent Reads, and on Fridays it’s Picoreviews, and so there’s a Kitsnaps day and a Writing Topics day and a I don’t even know what else day. A Recommended Reads, which would be different from Recent Reads. Stuff like that.

This is a thing I want to do. Plus other random stuff that comes up too, and the boring “now i’m writing and all i can talk about is writing!” posts (okay, i don’t actually think they’re boring :)).

I’d love to have my act together enough to do more political kinds of posts too, or at least regular climate change stuff or something, although that seems a little ambitious. Well, not necessarily the climate change stuff, I follow a lot of that reasonably carefully and could do write-ups about what I’m seeing easily enough. But other stuff.

Most of the trick to this clever plan is getting ahead of myself so I’m not scrambling daily to get something posted. It’s distinctly possible I’ll never get that far, but it’s a nice thought. Something to aspire to, like. :)

Anyway, I’ve just had a look at some of my lists of blog topics that people have indicated interest in in the past, but this would also be an excellent time for people to volunteer what they might wanna read about! :)

I don't have the brainz today to be creative, but I will say Yes! these plans sound lovely.

Maybe write a bunch of those posts when you have the time and queue them?

Yeah. Most of the things are things I do anyway, but not predictably, so the clever thing would be to figure out what day I want to do what on and start working on getting stuff queued.

The only problem with queuing is that once I write something I want to post it right away! O.O :)

Haha, I have that problem on Tumblr, too.

But if you get your schedule set up, when you queue it, you can tell yourself you're (sorta) posting it! You're queueing it! It will post when it's scheduled for! Hooray! \o/

The only problem with this cunning plan is that I'm currently not done with any TV, books, or movies! I suppose I could start with a writing post. Writing Wednesdays? :)

For a while there, I hosted something on dragon_age called 'WIP Wednesdays'. I like the alliteration. :)

Sadly, neither Recent Reads nor Picoreviews can possibly fit into that kind of lovely alliterative space. :)

This sounds a little bit like planning writing that could get in the way of Writing?

I vote for writing topics. Those always help me keep my writer's brain functioning.

Other stuff is cool too, of course.
