I don’t know if you knew this, but I have a blogging schedule.
Mondays I talk about writing. Wednesdays I write about reading. Thursdays and Fridays alternate between talking about reading, villains, and blogging. Today I am supposed to talk about blogging, but I don’t want to.
To be fair, I usually don’t. Most Fridays when I am supposed to talk about blogging, I use a tag to create some semblance of talking about blogging. It’s social, anyway—I like that bit. With tags you can call someone out for interacting with you and then interact with others. It keeps me social and active in my blogging community.
But “blogging” isn’t the umbrella title I want to use for what I do these days. I don’t write about how to be a blogger, and I don’t want to. Are you looking to increase your followers? Well, don’t look at me. Do you want to know how to format your blog? You don’t want to enlist my help. Are you trying to find a better way to connect with your audience? Nice try—run along and Google it, okay? Point is, the mechanics of blogging isn’t my main focus here.
I don’t know what I want to replace “blogging days” with, though. I like the format I have set up. It works for me. But what do I put here? Should I have another day of discussion? Should Wednesdays be reserved for books and Fridays for television? Should I make it a day to focus on being social? Would someone be interested in updates on my college experience? Or maybe I could choose a particular lens to focus on during those days. That’s an option, too.
It’s something I’ll have to think about. I could leave things the way they are, but that would be of no help to anyone. Also, by sharing my own feelings right now, perhaps you will have pertinent responses relating to your interest in the subjects I speak about and would like to see more of. Though if we’re sharing feelings, I want to be honest. There’s a spider trapped in the light fixture in the bathroom and it’s been there for like, a whole day, but I’m too chicken to get it down and kill it because its silhouette is big. I did just kill a bigger spider, though. Man, it’s legspan was like an inch and a half across! Yuck.
Anyway, the point is that maybe something will change around here soon, and we’ll do something else on Fridays like these. But not today. I did a tag on Wednesday. I am many things, but I’m not the kind of person who posts two tags in a week.
