This is an apology and promise of sorts. You know, the old, “I’m sorry I’ve done such a bad job and I promise to do better…And I mean I’ll do better than just doing better…differently.”
Hm, shall I explain?
Well, I obviously haven’t been a very good blogger as of late and that has bothered me. Once upon a time I was a regular blogger with a blog that covered lots of different topics under the heading of “my own little universe.” It worked while I was in that stage of my life, but life changes and ever since then I’ve let proper blogging fall to the wayside. For a while now this has just been a strange spot of hodgepodge ideas that hit me and for that I’m a truly sorry.
You deserve better, and frankly I feel a focus lacking blog that is only randomly updated is kind of like a mutilated zombie wondering without a soul. (How’d you like that word picture ;)
My solution? One: A posting schedule. Two: A strict topic.
Here’s the idea. Each week of the month I’ll highlight a different book from a different genre, sometimes classic, sometimes contemporary, always the best of the best.
1st week of the month:
Mystery and Mayhem- All things mystery/suspense.
2nd week of the month:
Romance and Reason – All forms of romance novels, from Chicklit to Historical.
3rd week of the month:
No-Nonsense-Nonfiction – Spiritual, historical, biography and whatever else falls under nonfiction.
4th week of the month:
Catchalls- The everything else category, from general to young adult to those darn books that defy genre.
Last week/remain days of the month:
Book Ends: General discussion of a topic or trend in the book market of the moment.
You may or may not find my topic of choice original, but I’ve been a bibliophile all my life so there’s really no point in trying to change me. Seriously, I met my kindergarten teacher after 20 years and she remembered me because I was obsessed with a particular book series. There’s no hope for me.
Anyway, I am hoping this regiment makes my blogging better by in large and I love talking about books with people. But even if no one reads my posts, I’ll just personally feel better in having a coherent blog with a little life.
…I know zombies are popular right now, but I really hate them.
