During the month of April I participated in the #AtoZchallenge for bloggers in which each blogger picked a theme and then blogged every day except Sundays following the alphabet. I have done this before but this year I had a lot more fun, met some great new bloggers and writers, and got a lot of new visitors to my blog.
I started blogging back in 2005—I don't even remember what I planned to blog about back then. Since then I've written over 2,000 blog posts, have had 750,000 visitors, and have enjoyed it for the most part. Over the past year I cut back my blogging to once a week but this past month has convinced me I need to blog more so I've come up with a plan. Let's see if this is workable.
On Sundays I will write my usual blog post for #SundayBlogShare. This will be about writing, book marketing, or any of the strange and unusual things and places I am always thinking about. In other words, pretty much what I've always done.
Tuesdays will now be #AuthorLove or #ArtistLove days. I will invite author and artist friends to share excerpts from their books or examples of their art, complete with links, pictures and anything else they want to share.
Thursdays are going to be #DomesticGoddess posts. My computer is FULL of recipes, knitting patterns, sewing ideas, etc. All stuff that I collect because I love it. So on Thursdays I'll be sharing my collection and hope people will enjoy them.
Saturdays will be #ImaginaryFriends day. This was my theme for the A to Z Challenge and I got such good feedback that I want to continue sharing snippets from my imaginary friends. Since the Marienstadt books alone have over 100 characters, I think I can do this for a long time.
I think I can schedule a weeks worth of posts in a few hours so it should not be too time consuming. I'm kind of excited about this because I have several new knitting projects to share, lots and lots of recipes, no shortage of author and artist friends, and plenty of interests. This week Skye Alexander is sharing an excerpt from her best-selling book, Mermaids: The Myths, Legends, and Lore. I have a delicious recipe for coconut pie. You'll get to meet Marienstadt's mayor, Gibby Stauffer. And next Sunday I want to tell you about my recent discoveries in family history, thanks to Ancestry.com.
So, as always, thanks for reading and for taking part in this adventure called life!!!
