OK. So, yet again I’ve not posted to here in an age.
This is the point where I try to come up with new ideas to force myself to post more often. My last attempt was the deal with that cheap toy camera and the posts based on pictures taken with it (cf. the last few posts). I enjoyed this, but it is difficult to take decent photographs with the thing – I would take 20 snaps in a day hoping to get one or two that I could use and end up with nothing. I would do the same the next day, and so on. Eventually the batteries ran out.
A trend I have noticed on other blogs is to alternate between a various types of post each day. So on a Friday, say, you always put a list of interesting links that you’ve come across during the week, on a Tuesday you have a longer article, etc. The idea is to make sure that you have some sort of content most days of the week.
I think I would like to give this sort of thing a try. I’m sure I will eventually hit upon a method that enables me to keep a regularly updated blog. I must now figure out the various post-types I could pick and choose from.
Some types of posts are:
- My picture driven post, a la the previous effort.
- “Thoughts I have had recently” – a small paragraph about each of a few things I’ve been thinking about recently.
- “In the news” – my reactions to a few news items.
- “Other blogs” – links to interesting posts from other blogs.
I will add to this list over the next few days and then, next week, try and start things off.
Oh, I still post to my poetry blog sometimes.
