Zero Hour: Your New Blogging Schedule

It's the last day of the A to Z thing (finally), which means that starting tomorrow, the blog will begin its new schedule.  I'm going to do more like my very first blog, which had three posts a week.  Only instead of doing Monday-Wednesday-Friday, I'm going to just lump them in the middle of the week:  Tuesday-Thursday because no one seems all that interested in Friday posts and hey, most of us are probably not all that alert on Mondays anyway.  I'm bringing back the clever (or not) names too!

So here's the schedule:

  • Two-fer Tuesdays:  to keep promoting the book, I'm going to use a random-number generator to pick a page from it (and a paragraph) and then pick out two sentences to post.  If it goes on long enough you might be able to assemble the whole story!
  • Wild Card Wednesday*: A rotating mix of posts, details below.
  • The Thursday Review:  Dedicated to book and/or movie reviews.
*Wild Card Wednesdays explained:  I was actually thinking of rotating different themes, a different one each Wednesday.  So it'd be something like this:
  1. First Wednesday:  Insecure Writer's Support Group thingy.
  2. Second Wednesday:  Superhero trivia:  random facts about superheroes with fabulous prizes at stake.
  3. Third Wednesday:  Everyday Heroes:  a blurb taken from a newspaper or something about real people doing good in their communities [Contact Me if you want to nominate someone!]
  4. Fourth Wednesday:  Practical Superheroism:  a tongue-in-cheek guide to becoming a superhero (don't try this at home!)
  5. Fifth Wednesday (May, August, October):  Something random.
And there you go.  You should know that me being me, all but the Thursday entries are already written.  I wrote the first Thursday one but I'm not sure what else I should review.  I want to try and review newer stuff people might be interested in because sadly most people don't care as much as I do about '80s GI JOE episodes or Deep Space Nine or anything like that.  Losers.  I was thinking I should get a subscription to a comic book or two; that would help fill some gaps and go with the blog's theme, right?  I wonder if I can get that on my Kindle?

If you want to do a guest post, Mondays and Fridays are open, so just let me know when you'd want to do it.  Go to the Contact Me page if you want to set something up.  Or leave a comment if that's easier.

Tomorrow being Tuesday will be the first two-fer post!

  1. I would love to do a guest post! But let's be realistic. I can't even update my own blog on a regular basis.

    New sched looks nice...

  2. Your schedule looks so much more complete than mine. I particularly love the idea of the Two-fer Tuesdays.

  3. Two-fer Tuesdays! Free books! Plus it's kind of a puzzle, like an updated version of "Choose Your Own Adventures" or "Magnetic Poetry." I think you've hit on something here: The Make Your Own Book. Once again, I'm in awe of your genius.

    I think I volunteered to do a guest post this Friday. Does it have to be ABOUT something? Maybe I'll do a poem. Let me know on Twitter.

  5. I may adjust my blog schedule. I haven't decided if I want to do that yet though.

  6. Strange, but I find Mondays to be my most active day. Thursdays and Saturdays are the quietest. But I'll follow your blog no matter when you post it, cause I'm a fan!

  7. I'm planning on slowing my schedule way down too. I just can't remember what I was going to do. Glad you have a plan
