‘Scuse the mess! Mercy me, if I’d known you were going to stop by, I would have baked cookies and fixed my hair. But, we’re friends, so the chaos doesn’t matter, and I’m glad you’re here.
It’s October in the halls of MamaMick, and while others are sipping warm pumpkin concoctions, I’m obsessing over Fall cleaning and purging. Autumn is the perfect time of year to move furniture, ditch the junk, and clean out the cobwebs.
It’s time to declare
again that I’m getting my website in order. Like husbands, a healthy blog needs proper care, feeding, and directives. The mission is to increase my accountability, readability, and aesthetics. This space should feel so cozy, that you stay for supper and toast your toes in front of the fireplace during dessert.
Overall Structure and platform
First Fridays: Housekeeping Duties–monthly editorial calendar, events, and changes
Mondays: (starting in November) Guest Posts! More to come (muahahaha!)
Thursdays: My posts. Third Thursday will be “Throw Back” posts or photos
October Editorial Calendar (with proposed titles)
Monday, October 5: I Need You, I Want You, I Gotta Have You
Thursday, October 8: There is Superstition: Lucky Shirts, Rabbit’s Feet, and Optimal Viewing Angles
Thursday, October 15: Schtuff My Husband Says: Second Edition
Thursday, October 22: Throw-Back Thursday – Blog Link Party!
Thursday, October 29: Shiny Objects: Book Nerds
Best intentions and outlines are all fine and dandy unless, of course, this happens.
Disclaimer 1: I retain the right to fall off the beaten path, skip a day, change a post, change a tire, cry if I want to, and eat chocolate instead of write on any given day.
Disclaimer 2: I will not stress, cry, throw things, or get uptight if I miss my fake deadlines.
Disclaimer 3: This place will look like chaos at times. I’m looking for the prettiest, most functional theme, and I haven’t found it yet. Don’t be surprised if you see paint chips, polka-dots, or elephants. Anything is possible in this creative phase.
Finally: Thank you, ALWAYS, for reading and commenting. You know that you are the best part.
Your turn: What makes you read a new blog? What subjects grab your eye? Do you prefer funny or serious posts? How do you make time to stay current with your reading?Do you have a favorite blog design or theme?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Now, make yourself at home. Grab a cup of tea (or diet Mountain Dew) and keep me company while I tidy up around here. As you’ll soon see, I wouldn’t want to do it without you.
