thinking some thoughts...

I've been thinking about the format of this blog for the last month or so since I switched to blogger and gave my posts a set structure.  While having a plan for the week has gotten me writing on a daily basis and consistently seeking out new content, I've come to the conclusion that it's not sustainable.  I really enjoy writing the grammar guide and the book reviews; those are two things I get and I'm good at.  But I feel like the "found" category and the "ventures into the blogosphere" aren't totally working for me.

Sometimes I want to write all about a new blog I've found, but other times, I'd rather post the really interesting DIY I found on Design*Sponge, even though you've probably already seen it, too.  So my heart isn't in it like it used to be when I wrote this blog as a dialogue for myself--a journal of my interests, I guess--instead of a website for which I was trying to gain a readership (which makes me laugh now--I am nowhere near interesting enough for that!).

In truth, though, the primary reason I think I'll be loosening my self-imposed schedule is simply that my life is going to get a little busier pretty soon.  Once we move, I'll be actively seeking a job, living within minutes of friends and family (actually, living with family for a few months), and probably taking two foreign language courses in preparation for graduate school.  I'll write, sure, but doing so every day might get challenging, and I want to specifically take time to unplug myself from the computer, or write fewer but more thoughtful and informative posts.

Is anything much going to change here?  I don't know.  I might keep to the schedule occasionally, but today I'm deviating.  I'll share a little something with you later, though!

I'm tired and my allergies arrived in all their springtime glory last night, so I'm saving my post for tomorrow.  If you are one of my few readers and came back, sorry that there's nothing more today.  But wouldn't you prefer a slightly more intelligent and interesting post anyway?  I thought so.  Have a good night.

I've considered having set things I do every day of the week, but I know it wouldn't work for me. One of the reasons I love blogging is because I can say exactly what I want to say, when I want to say it. And honestly, it's worked for me. People want to listen. Just be yourself and be honest -- that's the most important thing.
