Happy Tewe’s Day, Everybody!
Just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that I’m in the process of getting this blog back on track. I apologize for being absent a good deal of the time lately, but I’m almost caught up again. At least my life feels more like the usual harried rushing around and putting out fires than the totally out of control mess it’s been for at least six months. It’s definitely time for me to wrangle all these distractions and problems into something a bit more doable Or at least a bit more enjoyable!
One of the first things I want to do is get back to some of the regular features here on The Write Stuff that have fallen through the cracks as life went sideways. Yeah, it’s still at least somewhat sideways, but I think I’m going to be able to accomplish more than I have recently.
To start with, I want to bring back #ShareAReviewDay Tuesdays. Only better. I’ll think of a new name soon. Probably. But I want to open Tuesdays up for guest bloggers, with or without reviews. If you have anything you’d like to share here on The Write Stuff, be it a super new review, an upcoming release, a promo, or the like, Tuesdays will be the best day to do so. (This doesn’t mean that you can never visit on another day. Just that Tuesdays will be set aside for guests and their news.) I’m even planning on putting together some fun interviews for guest bloggers who might just be looking for a way to let others know more about them. Stay tuned for more on that.
I think #FirstLineFridays will go to a twice a month feature. Not ready to retire it yet, because there are so many wonderful opening lines for us to enjoy and learn from.
Thursdays are still good for #ThorsDaySmiles when I have something good to share with you, but I’m also thinking of indulging myself on Thursday afternoons. This might be a post on favorite topics of mine, like Florida wildlife and habitats, an update on my current WIP, or whatever else strikes my fancy.
Of course, I will continue to share posts from other blogs, too, especially those from my friends at Story Empire, weekly roundup posts from Smorgasbord, and any others I think will make an interesting or amusing reblog. And I have an idea for something brand new for Sundays, though I’m not ready to reveal that yet. 🙂
In general, my goal is to get back to a more active, entertaining, and useful blog. It might not happen all at once, as I still have a backlog of things to take care of. But it will happen!
Now, with that in mind, if you have something you’d like to share on the new Tuesday feature, please feel free to email me. (Contact info and Blog Rules in the header above). I’m looking at starting this feature back up in September, as I have a couple of other things going for the remainder of this month.
I hope this all sounds good to you, and that you’ll enjoy the old features returning and the revised or brand new ones, as well. Let me know your thoughts below, and feel free to email me any time with ideas, suggestions, or things you’d like to share.
