As many of you know, those who follow the blog’s facebook page anyway, I’ve been under the weather for a while now. SHINGLES of all things! Aaack! Double Aaack in fact. But I find myself coming back to health just as we’ve passed the two-year anniversary mark for the blog. And with this new sense of blooming health, I’m thinking about some changes.
First, you’ll notice there are suddenly no weekend posts. I just needed to create a less hectic writing schedule for myself, truth be told. But in addition to this, Adam and I have just discussed a major change that I’m pretty excited about. None of you really know this but, up until now, Adam (the techno brains behind the blog) has been responsible for publishing the posts once I’ve written and scheduled them. Very soon I’LL BE DOING THAT! I’m learning how right now. What this means is that I can publish anything I want any time I want. In fact I can put up two or three posts a day if I want. Wow!
So I’m thinking creatively about this new-found freedom—this new tool—and I’m considering letting the blog become more immediate—more timely—more topical. Dear reader, Grace Kane, you’ve always been thrown off by the idea that many of my posts are published long after the fact. This could change that! I’m sure I’ll still have some posts building up in my queue. That just keeps the pressure to write at a more comfortable hum. But I’m THINKING of creating space for the blog to become more like the facebook page. I’m playing with the idea of posting a new photo and a quote on THE BLOG each day! I’ll keep the facebook page, of course, but I’d really like to get the degree of interaction we’ve developed there happening on the blog as well.
This will likely take awhile to be realized, and I honestly don’t know exactly how it will all shake out. But I’m excited to give the blog some breather room and open it to some interesting change. I dearly hope that some of you facebook followers will start using the blog as you do facebook. Let’s see what vital and alive new form we can create together, shall we?
Here’s to a whole new way in this brand new anniversary year!
Love to you all,
