Change Can Be Hard

Have you guys ever produced a website that posts new content 4 times a week?  You have?!  Do you have an assistant?  You don’t?!

Yeah, me neither…

To date, I have written 386 posts for this site since its inception 14 months ago (I’m including posts that are to-be-published in that number).  WHAT?!

Which brings me to this itty-bitty change of pace: I’m going to drop one of my posts per week, so that #1) I’m not just throwing anything on this page to fill the space and #2) to see if 3 posts per week works for me, but more importantly, works for you.

Awww, come on now.  Don’t be grumpy.

Change Can Be HardChange can be hard, but it can be good.

If I find that you guys hate this change, I’ll listen and adjust.  My main thought behind the change is that so much information can be overwhelming to the point that you may not want to come back because there are too many words/posts and who has time to read them?

I really, really, really want you to come back….COME BACK!

On the other hand, you may be an information hound and want MORE!  Keep writing ALL THE WORDS, OMT!

Either way, I’ll keep a close eye on things and we’ll play it day by day.  If it looks like you’re better with 4 posts per week, I’ll go back to that.  If it looks like you’re great with three, well, I’ll make the change permanent.

In the meantime, here’s the tentative schedule:

Monday: FOOD posts!

Wednesday: SHOPPING/PRODUCT posts!

Friday: DEEP THOUGHT/SILLINESS posts!

If you have something you’d like to add, please weigh in with a comment and let’s talk about it.  After all, this is your home away from home.  I want you to be comfortable and eager to come visit.

Now, turn that frown upside down and let’s see what comes of this change.

Smile, baby!

Wow....I'm impressed! I'm a once a week blogger, and thinking about going up to 2 posts! I love your sense of humor, and will be back to visit! I write a travel blog, and have recently been adding reviews of ships, helpful tips, and local sights. I would love for you to stop by and take a look! karanandmichael.blogspot.com/2013/11/how-do-you-fit-everything-into-one.html

I think it's a good idea!! I like the idea of planned posts and I need to get on a similar schedule to get myself back in the groove.

Your blog is fun and I always enjoy reading it, regardless of how many times you post a week!

Thanks, Ashley. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on the change. Having posts banked and ready to go allow me the time to tackle other bloggy issues (learning my new DSLR, housekeeping, etc), plus I because I never know when I'm going to out-of-pocket from the computer, it's peace of mind knowing that the site doesn't come to a stand still if I am called away.

"Your blog is fun and I always enjoy reading it..." BEST COMMENT OF THE MORNING! Thanks!

3 posts a week is still a great number. I was at 4 until a bump in the road regarding my health happened. Now I'm just at - whenever I feel up to it! And guess what? People still read my blog and they even keep coming back. Life happens, and life is what is most important. :)

True, three is a good number. I just wanted to know if anyone who reads here regularly had strong thoughts pro or con. Thanks for the comment...now get back to livin' that life!

I love everything I have read in your little piece of cyberspace. I understand the three a wk posting, that is what I am aiming for also. Sometimes I want to sneak something in on a Thursday but I am trying to reign that in and work a little bit more behind the scenes. I also am trying to write ahead but I have only been one day a head....which is good for me! I think it helps my writing so I can review it before I launch it in to the big lovely world. Thanks for sharing, I am interested to see what you learn from it.

Everything?! Thanky! I think you deserve a ribbon or something for that kind of lurv! It definitely is going to be an ongoing experiment of sorts. I will keep y'all posted and let you know if I decide to change 'er up again.

Three and four both sound perfectly lovely. I think consistency is key to keep readers coming back, but you have such a great community here that I think you're safe either way. I'm in awe of your 8 weeks of banked posts! I was feeling great being a day ahead. ;)

"...but you have such a great community here." This made my heart sing! Thank you for that. The 8-weeks of banked posts is mainly because I have family issues that may make it tough, from time to time, to write every day, or even for a few days in a row, so I felt it necessary for the site's posting consistency to be prepared. Thanks for weighing-in.
