A little while back, I asked for feedback on what you guys liked about the blog, whether I should add more of something, or leave things as is. I ended up keeping things as they were, although the requests for more astronomy and geek culture posts did come up.
Well, I have been in a bit of a pickle. Writing for The Bold Mom, as well as what I have posted here, has made me realize that I want to share more of my work. Now that I’m busier in my personal life, I’ve had to decide just what I really want to focus on.
This has led me to make a change (sort of) to this blog. It’s purpose was always to give you a break in your day. I don’t want to change that. I also don’t want to drop posts that don’t relate to writing. So, in order to be more organized, I have categorized my posts.
Writing Wednesdays will be all about writing. While it will typically be my own work, there will be times where I may share a writing post, a book that I’m reading, or anything else related to the written word. In short, writing on a regular basis for another site, just isn’t enough for me anymore. I feel confident enough to want to share more of my poems and short stories.
Fusion Fridays will cover the other topics that I have done for this blog, namely geek culture, astronomy and family. Again, it will range from articles that I find to reblogs.
I have updated my About Me to reflect these changes.
I hope that organizing myself this way, will not only help me stay on top of my writing priorities, but also allow you guys to decide which post day you want to focus on. I hope that those of you who prefer my non-writing posts don’t feel jilted by my decision. Blogging is always about sharing, but it is a balance between posting what your readers want, and what interests you.
I have also changed my front page. I want to give the opportunity to show some of the amazing people who follow me, in hopes that it will encourage readers to click on their sites and take a look. I have a very eclectic group here. Writers, astronomy buffs, those who focus on mental health, beauty tips, parenting, photography and art, etc.
It’s pretty darn cool. 🙂
As always, let me know what you think. I have now included easy links to my other social media sites. At this time, I haven’t included Pinterest. If I start to spend more time on that site I will add it, but right now, it hasn’t been a priority.
Thanks guys for everything and stay tuned for Friday’ post! I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing yet. 😉
