Many of you left thoughtful and inspiring comments, including encouraging bloggers participate in challenges like the A-Z and weekly WP Photo Challenge. So I have contrived a schedule for my blog, which I started as an experiment, that I THINK I can keep. I combined several categories that seemed to go together. I like to blog every day, and I think this schedule gives me the flexibility post daily.
|Mondays||Ask Marsha Lee: Advice on Retirement, Blogging, Photography and ?|
|Tuesdays||Reviews: Books, Movies, Restaurants, Hotels (Mostly Books)|
|Wednesdays||Challenge Me: Wordless Or Wordy, but Always a Picture|
|Thursdays||Marsha and Manny’s Adventures Near and Far|
|Fridays||Remembering the Sordid Past: Mine and Other Folks|
|Weekends||Everything Relaxing Including Visiting Blogging Friends|
I’ll be writing Monday’s posts on weekends, but I’ll need you to ask me questions. Some of the advice I give may be from my stash of experience, and I have a ton of it, and other things may take me a while to research and I’ll come back to those questions. You can ask questions in several ways.
- Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Facebook me: Click the button in the footer on the left.
- Leave a comment on any post using the key word, “Advice“. somewhere in your comment.
I will get back to you, if not in a post, at least in an email.
For my posts on Tuesdays, I’ll also need your opinions about what you’d like to have reviewed from what I’ve read, of course. You can also suggest great books, but I read about 700 words a minute, and that’s when I don’t fall asleep doing it! Alastair had a great way to review books on Tuesdays called Teaser Tuesdays, and I may try that once in a while, too. I may even review someone’s blog on Tuesday. I was surprised that few people liked that idea. 😦
When I am not traveling or working on CCSS matters, I blog about 4-6 hours a day at a minimum. I am be slower than some, dithering and adjusting pictures and words, but OH WELL, I’m retired! The rest of the time I spend reading and dribbling stories, remarks, and likes on your blogs, and reading the blogs you recommend to me.
