A few months ago, I decided to invest more in the hungriest reader to (1) brush up on my writing skills; (2) keep my mind sharp while I was on vacation; and (3) learn a little bit of marketing. Over the past four months, I came up with a reasonable schedule for my posts: Wednesdays for Short Bites, Thursdays for Novel Reactions, and Sundays for Curious Travels (and others). I had no work obligations then, so it was fairly easy for me to keep up with my self-imposed schedule.
Today I am two weeks into my new job, and so far, so good. I have been learning a lot, and, mission accomplished: reading books kept me sharp and (the nonfiction ones) prepared me for my new job. Managing the hungriest reader has also been a great way for me to keep share my interests, reading and traveling, so instead of shutting this down, I’ve decided it’s time to readjust to my new lifestyle.
TL;DR, here’s my new posting schedule:
- Short Bites: First and Third Wednesdays
- Novel Reactions: Every Thursday (until further notice)
- Curious Travels (and others): Second and Fourth Sundays
If this doesn’t work out, I’ll readjust again. Better to start now than have everything crashing down later. (I’m pretty much stretching the lean startup mindset and applying it into managing my blog, no big deal.)
