Blog Update

I haven’t messed with this for a while, so I figured it was about time I updated this. It’s a pretty big change. First, the theme is different. This might change yet again, as I haven’t decided if I like it or not.

Second, I got rid of the “schedule” since we all know that I just don’t have one right now.

Third, I messed with the categories. I want to do more posts on food and parenting, which is to say, any posts on food or parenting. I’d also like to write more on writing, but that didn’t fit my “f” theme I had going on the menu bar. I dunno, that might be a little too cute. That might go away.

Only thing I haven’t done? Written a blog post. I guess that means I should do that at some point…

File this under: “things I thought were simple but aren’t”

So, I was doing really well at blogging regularly – once or twice a week – and I thought to myself, “hey, I really want to be spending time writing novels. Why don’t I do that instead?” The plan was as follows:

  1. Stop blogging
  2. Use the gained time to write fiction
  3. Finish a book!
  4. Conquer world!

With this in mind, I boldly began my plan. Unfortunately, this is what actually happened:

  1. Stop blogging
  2. Stop writing altogether
  3. …yeah, that’s about it

All that to say, I’m going to try to get back on a schedule of writing, which includes blogging mainly because I feel a lot more guilty if I don’t post something than if I don’t write on a novel that no one sees but me. Go go gadget shame…

We will now resume our regularly scheduled, Most Thursdays, Some Tuesdays programming.

Schedule Change Again

Well, my experiment with posting twice a week has come to an end, and I’ve decided not to continue. The purpose of this blog is to get me writing again, and it’s certainly done that, but now I need to focus more on what I really want to write – fiction books.

So, as of now, one of the days I used to write a blog post in I’ll instead devote to fiction writing. I’m still a long ways off from my goal of writing every day, but this is helping, so that’s good. Life as Geek will now return to it’s regular, “most Thursdays, some Tuesdays” schedule. So ok, sometimes twice a week, but usually not.

Thanks for reading. 🙂

Because I don’t have enough to do…

…I’m now going to attempt to blog more.

I started this to try and get myself writing on a regular basis, and decided that I would start by trying to post at least once a week (Thursdays) for a month. I have now officially done that (and a little more).

So, my next step in my grand plan to take ov-write more is to increase my blog posts to twice a week. From now on, at least for a month anyway, I’ll be posting Tuesdays and Thursdays. Still no regular schedule as to categories though, as I don’t want to restrict myself so much that I stop doing this.

Wish me luck! (and yes – this post counts, ha )

Category RSS Feeds

…are up.

Click on any category link on the left, and you’ll see on the right the link for that feed. Now you don’t have to hear about all my blathering! Just the blathering you care about! Or something.

Working on three different posts right now, not sure what’s actually going to make it up on Thursday. Will be a post, though, if I can help it.

Updated Site!

Hey all, I changed the site around a bit to make it easier to read. (I liked the black but it was hard on the eyes for longer posts.) I’m going to tweak the site a bit more in the next few days, probably put the categories back on top and such, so if you have any suggestions/comments about the look let me know.

Also, the site should look really nice now on any mobile device, especially an iPhone (as that’s what I had to test it on!). I’m really pleased with how that turned out!

Planning on a more regular posting schedule right now of every Thursday, with the goal of making it be Tuesdays and Thursdays once I get into a routine here. No topic schedule, though I do plan to eventually put up a category specific rss feed on here so you won’t need to hear about stuff you don’t care about on here. 🙂

Decided I really needed a place to put all my blogging together, hopefully in a vaguely interesting way.  I’m planning on possibly turning a few of these feeds into podcasts at some point, but no time table on that yet, so breath holding=probably not a good idea.

Welcome!  Seems this is up and working.  Next step: content.
