Change in Publishing Frequency
(No, this is not an April Fool’s post!)
Public Service Announcement:
Starting this month, I’m reducing my weekly blog posts from seven to four – in general, I plan to post on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, though the weekday posts might move around a little due to circumstances, or increase for special occasions (for instance, if I have photographs from a conference).
Sundays will still be poetry days for the near future, and I’ll be continuing with World War One poetry for a while.
I enjoy coming up with blog posts, so writing the posts isn’t a problem; but I am frankly curious if the frequency change will affect this blog’s traffic.
And for your further enjoyment, Issue 1.2 of the Journal of Popular Romance Studies is now online, featuring an interview with Joanna Russ!
About Victoria Janssen

Posting a test comment since I lost my previous one.
I see this one, not the previous.
So, Victoria, I tried 2-3 times and gave up. Trying again today.
I went the same way at the beginning of the year. Last year, I had a goal of writing five days a week, and it got so hard that after a while I was averaging only one a week. So this week, I went down to three blogs (M, W, F) a week and also batching up: writing in advance on the weekends. I’ve been able to sustain it, so that’s good.
How’s your new plan coming along?
Hmm, I hope my host isn’t having issues…if anyone else wasn’t able to comment, then they didn’t email me, so I have no way of knowing. Thanks for being persistent.
The new plan is going well so far, though it hasn’t been for very long. I’ve always been one to write ahead of time and pre-post, sometimes as much as a month in advance; the only change now is that I feel like I have more leisure to think about the posts, since I’m doing three and not five.
At the same time, I’m fighting off weird guilt that when I post something promo-related, that I’m “wasting” a day. Which is silly since this blog is supposed to be about me and what I think, and when I have some promo I’m thinking about it, and anyway it’s a courtesy to let people know I have something come out. (And maybe some of them will read it!) So I need to get over that.
I’m still pondering if I want to shift my topics a bit to make them more directed, but I don’t think I will, since I am not a very directed person; I want the freedom to write about what I feel like writing about.
