We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you an update on the state of my blogging schedule, and also to set up for my upcoming blog anniversary.
First order of business: I’ve decided to retire character interviews. I haven’t written one in months, I wasn’t enjoying them much even before that and didn’t feel like they were really delivering anything special, so I’m setting them aside for now. They might pop up again now and then, but third Wednesdays are just normal writing posts now.
Next up: I’m in the process of figuring out a new direction for my content. I don’t anticipate that anything will change drastically, but my blogging started to get stale a while back (to me, anyway) and I’m still in the process of determining what sorts of topics I really want to talk about. The posts I’ve written in the past few weeks have been more in the direction I want to go, so hopefully I’ll just continue coming up with ideas like those that I’m interested in and find important and feel like I really have something notable to say on.
Among other things, I’m considering officially retiring my newsletter. I haven’t been able to use it to add a lot of value to my readers, and I think my energy would better serve you all elsewhere. I may bring it back later if I’m able to learn more about email lists and how to make them work, but for now I think it’s better for me to focus on my blog and social media accounts.
Should I go through with the retirement of my newsletter, I might open the resource library to the public but set it up as a store that operates on a donation system (the reader decides the price they want to pay for a download). That way I can still value my work but my downloads are readily available to those who want them.
But now on to the fun stuff! My blogiversary is coming up in just a couple of weeks, and I’ll be doing a Q&A! Drop your questions in the comments and I’ll answer them in my big blogiversary post. They can be on anything (within reason). I have some other cool stuff planned, too, but you’ll have to wait and see that on the actual anniversary. ;)
Thanks for sticking around to the end of this post! Here’s a dragon. 🐉
