First of all, I am bound and determined to finish all my ABC posts (which were only supposed to last the month of September), participate in my Sunday group reads, blog my Classics Circuit post on the 23rd, AND participate in READATHON on the 22nd of this month. I’m so bad about starting themed blogger stuff and then dropping off. I really, really miss my regular blogging.
Expect some changes soon in November. I think I’m going to go to a daily format or some sort of loose schedule. Then maybe I can post ahead in those pocket of time I squirrel away for blogging instead of spending my time wondering what the heck to write about.
What I’d like from you all (my few brave readers) is a little bit of feedback. If you wouldn’t mind, leave me a comment about what you’d like to see on Fig and Thistle or shoot me an email at amanda.l.addison(at)gmail(dot)com. Comment or email by 26 October 2011 and you’ll be entered to win a gift box from moi. Of course, I haven’t determined what exactly will go in said box. Let’s just say it will contain something bookish, something coffeeish, and something handmade. Please, U.S. folks only (sorry, I’m so poor). I will draw a winner via random generator on the 26th!
To get your ideas churning in the ole gray matter, here’s a list of ideas:
What subjects do you like most and would like to see with regularity? What do you hate?
- Book reviews, library loots, and random reading stuff
- Knitting and embroidery
- Personal / life stuff
- Mommy stuff
- Professional stuff — aka library stuff, particularly about Interlibrary Loan and Resource Sharing
- Memes and blogger events
- Challenges (books, weight loss, knitting, etc…)
- Pintrest boards, items I love, product reviews
- Blogs and links of interest
- Health and weight loss
- Clothes, thrifting, decorating
- Movie reviews
- More pictures
- ANY OTHER IDEAS???
Now time for the disclaimer: I really want feedback, but in the end this blog is a representation of ME. This means it will never fit into a niche: books/mom stuff/baking….. I can’t just write about one element in my life.
My recent lack of blogging is because I have TOO MUCH to talk about. I feel stuck and overwhelmed by all I want to share. I think having a set theme or loose structure will help me focus all these ideas and words and plans busting outta my brain.
Alright folks, share the love.
