With the start of Sierra's Autumn also comes a decision that I spent an inordinate amount of time making. I've decided to reduce my five-times-a-week blogging schedule. I love blogging so much and I love writing so much, but there are definitely days where blogging takes too much time and then I have nothing left over for stories. Also, I think there are days where my posts are hit or miss with you guys.
But things, they change. You can directly blame Anne Allen for tipping the scale in favor of this decision, who posted a beautiful and thoughtful post about "slow blogging" (think slow cooking). And then Roni at Fiction Groupie did it yesterday. And last week, Kristen Lippert-Martin talked about submarining. And Meghan Ward and I were talking about reducing my blogging frequency and it being fine. And it all just seemed to make sense, not the least because all these super smart, classy ladies were basically telling me to.
So, with that, my new blogging schedule will be:
- Wednesday words
- Friday Google Reader Roundup
