SUMMER VACATION, YO.
Pro: I don’t have to get up early
Con: There are children here. Loud children. I do not have quiet time to myself to write, read, or watch netflix while thinking “Huh I should write something” for another nine weeks.
This has not stopped me from forming big plans, including some blog projects. I’m trying some new things out in the near future. These include:
1. Wednesday links!
We’ll still have videos, but in a context of pointing you towards other people’s work instead of posting the finished product. I want to be respectful of everyone’s ownership of their work and make sure I’m, not violating copyright, because that would be bad and I would go to writer hell. In writer hell all you get to read is 50 Shades of Grey. Please don’t send me there. Plus I’ll be linking to articles that interested me during the week, and anything I’ve published over at smart Bitches, Trashy Books.
2. Tuesday interviews and guest posts HEY! Got something to say? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I regret that I can’t pay contributors because my blog is not monetized. However…
3. At some point this summer I have high hopes of carving out the time to switch to wordpress.org for hosting, which would allow me to run giveaways and post ads. I’ll also be adding affiliate links. Guest posters – if I make money, so do you. So let’s pull this thing together!
4. And let’s not forget that San Diego Comic Con is coming up! This year I have a kid in tow so my coverage will be a little different – more staring at cosplay and hanging out at booths, less waiting in line for panels. Last year left me both exhausted and energized – can’t wait to see what this year brings!
Be patient with me as I navigate kids, pets, and big plans. Hope your summer is full of beaches and books!
