Blogmetic Surgery....

So, since the medical community won’t allow me to use cosmetic surgery as a weight loss tool… *le sigh* I’m going to attempt to get my fix by performing a little “blogmetic” surgery on my blog. (no worries, little bloggy – it will be painless, I promise!)

So, I’m switching things up! And I do hope you all stick around and LOVE my changes! Here’s the new line-up:

Mood-munchies and Mood-music Mondays: Writers have things that help them through their writing processes and food and music seem to be among them - Elana J.’s obsession with bacon, Shannon Whitney Messenger’s character play lists, for example. I know music inspires certain scenes in my novels and who couldn’t use a break from their MS once in awhile to enjoy some good grub? So – on Mondays I plan to highlight music and food/recipes.

Totally Random/Traveling Tuesdays - This one’s a free-for-all! My prerogative to post anything I want, or nothing at all, OR something to do with travel. Maybe interviews with fellow bloggers. Maybe a snippet of my wip. Maybe this, maybe that – you’ll never know unless you stop by…

Writerly Wednesdays – ALL about all things Writing Related: Processes, contests, inspirations, prompts, great writing websites, conferences, etc. In which I hope to be helpful… :)

This-is-Me Thursdays – this will be my day to dish on what’s going on in my life, or to gush about other things I love – like all the many television shows I’ve watched over the years, or books I’ve read, or movies I’ve seen, or a particularly great GNO with my besties. Basically, it’s all about ME! (feel free to skip Thursdays entirely...)

Find-the-Story Fridays – This is a feature I already do and I really love it and I ESPECIALLY love when my followers play along! I post a picture that I’ve taken – a person, place, or thing - and ask you to find the story behind it.

Saturdays and Sundays = OFF/Blogcation.

So, that’s it! What do you think? Give it a week and you’ll let me know? :)  I plan to start with the new post schedule on Tuesday, Feb. 1st, as I’ll be participating and posting for “Market My Words” Pay it Forward contest on Monday, the 31st.

So, my bloggy friends. I hope you hang in there with me and enjoy the new things I’ll bring you. If it takes some convincing, well...I’m not above schmoozing, so I’ll also say that - “You da bomb!” “You’re frawesome!” “You ROCK!” “You’re the best invention since sliced bread!”
Seriously, wouldn’t be here without all of you. So, thanks!

Changing things up is fun! I admire your ability to be so scheduled. My blog is like random day every day!

A schedule always helps! Mine's a bit more random, but I always know when I'm posting. And this will really help for the A to Z Challenge.

That sounds like a great and varied schedule! Will look forward to reading it all. I'm into "easy" on my blog--I only post once a week, on Wednesdays. LOL

'tis interesting how bloggers use weekends for blogcation :) but I still have more than 1,000 visits every Saturday and Sunday :)

Looks like a good plan to keep you on track for doing the A to Z Challenge. I started blogging on a schedule (albeit sometimes a loose one) early in my blogging career and it really helps me to think of topics.

Good luck with it!
