I have to admit, I’m having a hard time with today’s April Platform Challenge; creating an editorial calendar for this blog. Ack! Planning? Doesn’t that defeat the whole purpose of having a blog in the first place? You have a thought up here and … bleeeah! … it pops up on the internet; all formatted and shiny! All of which explains the frequency and consistency of my efforts to date. That’s a nice way of saying scattered and infrequent. Oh sure, I get on the occasional tear and crank out 10 or 20 posts in a row and then …
So, I go and open the spreadsheet, put in Sunday through Saturday headers in the top line and … nothing. I got nothing. Hmmm. Perhaps a little forethought. And the light comes on! The purpose of today’s challenge … thinking or at least planning ahead. I need topics!
After a couple of minutes jotting down ideas I came to the conclusion that I have more topics than time. Some of them are going to have a great deal of frequency (Tech/Geek/Nerd); others, no so much (Classic Gaming). Oh, and writing. Writing, of course. That should figure in big time!
Since I’m running behind on the challenge, I’m setting my goal for May 14th to kick off the new schedule. Look for posts two to three times a week (depending on my Flash Fiction generation from Jeff and Chuck’s prompts). I’m also planning to hatch my wicked plot to take of the world with A Method to The Madness: A Guide To The Super Evil.
It’s going to be busy. Or, at least more organized.
