From this week I have decided to make a couple of changes to this blog and I thought now would be a good time to tell you about them.
As this blog develops it seems to take on at least a little bit of structure here and there.
If I had something of a rant to get off my chest it tended to be on Tuesdays (I have no idea why I picked Tuesday for this) but I have decided to move this to Monday for no other reason that I can call this feature “Monday Moaning” – yes I do like my rather lame puns I am afraid.
One thing I like about the idea of “Monday Moaning” is that if I can get the negative stuff out of the way at the start of the week then I can concentrate on more positive, productive things for the rest of the week.
Actually for me I tend to think of Sunday as the start of my working week as it allows me to tie up some loose ends from the previous week and make some useful preparations for the rest of the week ahead. For example if I have forgotten to reply to someone’s blog comment during the week then Sundays are when I tend to catch up on this task.
However I don’t tend to blog on Sundays because I feel that there must be at least one day in the week when you can be sure you will not be subjected to my inane ramblings.
Wednesdays are ‘Words Wednesdays” where I like to introduce new and unusual words into the mix and now on Fridays I want to introduce a newsletter feature which will be more of a series of thoughts rather than one single blog post.
The imaginatively titled “Friday Newsletter” will be the name of this new feature.
The reason for the newsletter approach is that over the past few months I found myself with something to say, but having already written a blog post that day, no way of saying it.
Often it is more of a “by the way this has happened” or a “have you heard about this” item rather than something deserving of a whole blog post on its own.
So I thought I would wrap these up in a Friday Newsletter and see how it goes.
Please let me know what you think of the changes and if you have any other suggestions for me then I would also love to hear from you.
