Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today, I'm dazzling you all with a new blog schedule. This is more so you know what to expect from the blog in the upcoming months. Which days you may want to mark to pay my little corner of the blogosphere a visit will be easier to determine. What? You love all the posts? Well, you rock! But for those others, who come here for something specific, I'm giving you a new map to help you navigate. I'm also planning a huge re-org of the information here so you don't have to wade through things you don't need to find what you're looking for. Grab a cup of coffee, get comfy, and let's get going!
First, let's hit that new schedule!
Monday - Every other Monday, you'll get an author interview. For those off weeks in between, I'm gonna start listing the highlighted author's books. So, that's something to look forward to!
Tuesday - Digital stuff. Whether this is news, a new app to make your life easier, or something cool I found while perusing the web, I'll share that on Tuesdays.
Wednesday - Book Review Wednesday! Every Wednesday, I'll post a new book review.
Thursday - This will be a day for a writing tip. Whether a grammar lesson, editing tip, writing tip, or a nifty book you should check out about writing, you can plan to get awesome information on Thursdays.
Friday - Viva la weekend! Seriously, the first Friday of the month will have an official utopYA Con post. For the remaining Fridays, I'll be giving you a snippet and link to the other official bloggers' posts. This will be re-worked after the 2015 con.
Now, on to the re-org of information.
I'm sure you're all familiar with my categorized link list. Well, because of the volume of tips and tricks posts I do, it's becoming an unwieldy beast. No one wants to hunt through tons of endless links (even if they are defined) to find what tip they're looking for. So, I'm endeavoring to split that page into a couple more, sorting the posts so they're easier for you to find. Those informational hubs will be updated as I write posts instead of twice a year (like it's done now). You'll also find a new book reviews page so you can see those with the click of a mouse.
Keep your eyes open for those changes. I'll announce them when they happen. All this goes hand-in-hand with my plans for the blog over the coming year. You'll see things streamlined, simplified, and clutter (I hate clutter) removed. I'm trying for something more like the photo above, with everything in a neat little box. *grin*
As I change things around, let me know how you like the new layout. I hope it works better for you, and makes this beast of a blog easier to navigate.
Here's to a new year and simplification!
Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!
