What now?


You may have noticed that, for the first time since beginning this blog, I said that I’d put the blog on hiatus and stuck to it. This was partly due to Personal Matters throwing a wrench in my mojo, but it was also partly due to wanting to take some time to work out what I’d like to do with this blog.

What I’ve come up with is this: I want to blog more consistently. More predictably. No more abandoning this place for a week or two and then firing off three posts in a day! I’m going to schedule three posts every week. Not that three posts is necessarily all you’ll get, mind. But there’ll be at least three. And here’s what they’ll be:

Serious business is for Saturdays. This is where you’ll get my reasonably well-considered opinions on things. Pontificating on society and whatnot.

Mondays will be less serious- anecdotes, things I’ve cooked, places I’ve been. ‘Cause who wants something serious on a Monday? Not me.

Wednesdays? Wednesdays are for linkspams. Because I frickin’ love linkspams, and I firmly believe that people who do/write awesome things online should get all the sharing they can.

Aside from that, I just want to thank everyone for all the support and wishes in the past few weeks. It’s been a tough time- still is. As often happens at times like this, though, I’ve been incredibly touched and overwhelmed by the people around me. Both online and offline. I’m lucky to know you lot.

It’s good to be back!

  1. Welcome back! I’m happy you’ll be posting regularly and look forward to each of them as usual. I am also jealous of your scheduling skills, because I am the most disorganized person on the planet and could not follow a schedule to save my life.

    • Thank you!
      I’m a little wary of my own ability to schedule properly, to be honest. I write something and want to post it up straight away, right now! I’m working on having a little bit of patience with things, and trying to get posts up in advance. I figure that if I tell everyone that I’ll do it, that’ll shame me into actually getting it done. Most of the time, at least 😉

  2. Honestly? During busy times, scheduling posts saves my life. I mean, there is the impatience of wanting to see everything up right away, but that’s less than the pressure I feel when I haven’t posted something in multiple days.

    And it’s oh so nice when I come home on an extra busy day to see that, on the blog front at least, things are taken care of for the better part of the next week.

    • I’m gathering that already! Though I find it so weird right now that I have a week’s worth of posts scheduled and another week or two already written. And they’re not up yet! The idea that blogging isn’t all about last-minute frantic typing seems completely alien to me.
      I could probably just-about manage to get used to it, though.

  3. Glad to have you back Aoife. Now I won’t have to be all disappointed when I check my RSS feed and there’s no new posts from you, because I’ll always have Saturday, Monday and Wednesday to look forward to 🙂
