It’s been a more sparse week than usual, so I wanted to apologize for that, but I have news and some upcoming things happening!
In an attempt for variety and exposure, a couple new items will be added to the posts. I’ve been wondering how to do this for a little while and I think I know what I want to do now. One of the regular posts will be a follower/followed spotlight, for those blogs that are writing based, and some that aren’t. Which, another reason for this, is to vary up what I put on this blog, and to give more than just advice and prompts.
I want to be a font of knowledge, but I got worried that I was being too narrow and limiting myself by only writing posts of what I encounter and not taking from the already wide world of information that’s before me. That comes in the form of other, more successful bloggers (in many senses), and their own experiences, so I would start doing some reblogging as well, which I have always been very apprehensive about. It feels sort of like a cop out, but it is genuinely about expanding the blog.
So, actually reblogging things, and giving a showcase of blogs that I follow or of those that follow me! Also likely that I’ll start posting on Fridays again. Pending how busy the week is for me.
I am enjoying not having to write 1700+ words every day, though, and being able to take a short break from heavy duty writing feels good. I did manage to hit 50k on the 26th, but kept writing, albeit slowly and not as much, until the 30th. Like I said in an earlier post, I rewarded my struggle and efforts on the last day with a massive chocolate cupcake that was way too decadent and rich but so delicious.
I will probably never have one of those again because holy crap that’s unhealthy, but I was glad to indulge. Pictures were taken to document its enormity, even! I’ll put those up soon because cupcake. As soon as I learn how to resize them…
As always, if you have questions, comments or suggestions, they’re all welcome! Thank you for your patience with me this week!
