Blogging Update


Ladies and Gentlemen,

My schedule is on a torture rack. And I’m the one guilty of putting it there. Remember my post last week about my old friend Boundaries? Well, I’ve invited him to the salt mine with me. I’ve invited him to read books to my children with me (you should hear his accent). And he wants me to go public with some news. It’s time for me to cinch the waistband of my blogging schedule. That’s right, perfect timing as we approach the Thanksgiving meal. Boundaries has kindly asked that I cut my posts back to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. After a knockdown drag out, I agreed.

Because we are roaming in my thoughts on this blog, I assure you I will continue to think on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please do not worry about that. There is no shortage of thoughts for this gal (We once had a pastor who called females of all ages gals. It cracked me up every time. I felt like I needed to be wearing a hoop skirt or listening to Jimmy Stewart talk about wanting to lasso the moon.)


On Mondays and Wednesdays we’ll walk around in the confines of my mind and if you’ve been reading/following All in a Day’s Thought for awhile, you know that means you’re in for some surprises. I’ll keep going with One Question Fridays. I’ve been highly fascinated reading your comments. I’m certain I learn by watching others grow.

Thanks for understanding as I begin to make concerted efforts to hoist my schedule off that antiquated smelly rack. I’m all for a good stretch, but honestly!

See you tomorrow for your question.

**Obviously I spoof when I mention my friend, “Boundaries”. The real inspiration and authority behind my decision is of course, my God.
***A special nod to friends and fellow bloggers who have been firm with boundaries, setting an example for me and who’ve encouraged me in this decision

  2. I didn't even realize you posted everyday? MWF is a great schedule and I also think it's the norm. :-)

  3. I've found working on a blog schedule nicely frees up more time for other writing as well. Always a good thing :)

  6. Not a bad idea. I was thinking of doing the same thing. We'll see, though.

  8. We certainly can't blame you! We'll just eagerly await your M,W,F posts. ;)

    Best with this new decision!

  9. Sounds like your not alone in this schedule. It seems we're all getting a little more serious about scheduling.

  10. I too am dealing with the blogging schedule as I find myself wanting to post not every day, but sometimes several times a day! When I'm not working on mine I'm out traveling around visiting everyone else's and looking for new ones to visit. The other day I found I had spent over 3 hours on blogs when I could have been writing. I'm trying to practice discipline and limit myself as well or I'll do nothing else but blog!!!

  11. I respect your decision! I've been enjoying M,W,F posts myself, though I do participate in the random unplug week here and there because it feels right (and there are weeks I can't wait for the break).

    So glad you're going to continue to think on Tuesdays and Thursdays :D I tend to try to turn off my brain on those days so at least someone out there is still on top of things!

    By the way, I love One Question Fridays so I'm glad you're keeping them!

  12. Wisdom speaks... and I should follow! I've noticed it's too much to post on a daily basis and accomplish goals set as well. Joining club as of next week! Thanks Wendy!

  13. Wendy, I'm happy to see that you and Boundaries came to an agreement. I admire you for realizing and respecting your limitationa and need for balance. I'll look forward to your MWF posts.

  14. I think many of us realize we have to set boundaries. Especially as writers! There is only so much time in a day!

  15. I think ole boundary might be on to something. I think I'm doing good to go for twice a week! :0 Your blog will be a good as ever and be anticipated even more, I suspect! Have a good one.

  16. I need to set some sort of schedule, too. I've been completely random with my posts.

  17. I love blogs that don't post everyday. Then I don't miss so many posts, because with the number of blogs I follow it takes me more than two days to check in on all of them.

    See you tomorrow!

  18. Good for you...will be praying for you as you allow Boundaries a room in the house called your mind! :)

    Much love,
    Bina

  19. Totally understand, girl! I think it's a good decision. Blogging can take up so much time!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Good for you! Half the time I can only read blogs one or two days a week anyway!

  21. Hey, Wendy! Good for you. Boundaries are a great thing. I hope that this brings you more time to rest--or write! Have a great weekend!
