Blog Schedule

January 26, 2019

Greetings! Those of you who have followed this blog, for various reasons, may have seen the post I did in March 2018 when I edited my regular schedule for the postings on various days of the week. You may also have noticed that my daily posting fell apart this past year due to the irregularities of my life and health. On March 1, 2108 I announced the start of my Sabbatical. With the beginning of 2019 I have determined that sabbatical to be over and as of tomorrow will be starting a new and slightly revised blog schedule.

One change is that on Mondays I will no longer be writing about fitness, but health, which can mean fitness, but touch a lot of other subjects, mostly personal but also linking to whatever level of health I choose to make it.

But the biggest change is going to be on Tuesdays. The day is going to be a review of items of interest I found in blogs and other places on the internet over the past week.

  • Sunday: Great Hymns of the Faith — I am working my way through the hymn book of my childhood. I put up the text, and record and mp3 of me playing and singing (sometimes with other family members) the hymn.
  • Monday: Health — Discussion of health and fitness topics related to my own personal journey or observations I make about health issues around me.
  • Tuesday: The Swift Précis – Bits of Blogs and Items of Note from the Internet.
  • Wednesday: Great Hymns of the Faith — Another installment of the series I mentioned on Sunday
  • Thursday: A Look Ahead. –– A list of interesting events going on and coming up that I know of and may be involved in.
  • Friday: A Blast of the Past — Putting up pictures from the family photo albums, with reflections on them and my file.
  • Saturday: Reflections — The open mic day to comment on any topic I choose to, from any field. A combination editorial/essay/apologietics piece.

(March 3, 2018)

So here is the schedule, flexible as it is:

  • Sunday: Great Hymns of the Faith — I am working my way through the hymn book of my childhood. I put up the text, and record and mp3 of me playing and singing (sometimes with other family members) the hymn.
  • Monday: Fitness Update — Discussion of my own fitness journey and goals through the year, with related fitness and personal reflections
  • Tuesday: Sabbatical update — Review and reflection of the activities of my Sabbatical.
  • Wednesday: Great Hymns of the Faith — Another installment of the series I mentioned on Sunday
  • Thursday: A Look Ahead. –– A list of interesting events going on and coming up that I know of and may be involved in.
  • Friday: A Blast of the Past — Putting up pictures from the family photo albums, with reflections on them and my file.
  • Saturday: Open Mic — The one day to write about anything. Perhaps the Sunday Paper Feature Page of the blog, only on Saturday.

Back in 2016 I mentioned WorldCon would be coming to town, and I would preempt the above schedule for a special series on the convention.  The schedule is always open to such interruptions for special features in the future.

As you can tell, I like doing series of posts with multiple entries, whether special features, or the regular ones shown above.  Hopefully you all enjoy the developing structure.

Greetings! For those of you who have followed this blog, for various reasons, you may have noticed the start of a regular pattern to my blog posts. I have been on a journey of regular blogging, which I feel includes having some structure in what I blog about. Just blogging whatever comes to mind on any day is dangerous: not that I might say something dangerous, but that regular life sometimes makes the  mind so numb or tired that it comes up with little coherent or interesting to say.

But if I have a planned topic, the ideas structure themselves (most of the time) around it and I can write something you hopefully find interesting.

So here is the schedule, flexible as it is:

  • Sunday: Great Hymns of the Faith — I am working my way through the hymn book of my childhood. I put up the text, and record and mp3 of me playing and singing (sometimes with other family members) the hymn.
  • Monday: Fitness Update — discussion of my own fitness journey and goals through the year, with related fitness and personal reflections
  • Tuesday: Open Mic (for me, not other people, though that would be an idea …)
  • Wednesday: Great Hymns of the Faith — Another installment of the series I mentioned on Sunday
  • Thursday: Open Mic
  • Friday: A Blast of the Past — Putting up pictures from the family photo albums, with reflections on them and my file.
  • Saturday: Open Mic

I’ve got ideas for another series to fill the Thursday slot for the summer.  When Worlds of Fun opens up I’ll probably start a weekly feature on the goings-on at the park. I did periodir pieces on the all-season dining plan last year, and will probably use the weekly feature to expand on that.

Also this summer (2016) WorldCon is meeting in Kansas City, and I will be going. It will be my first time attending a Con, so I plan to do some sort of series blogging about the experience, as well as more news-focused items on what was there itself. I might also do some lead-up pieces on the Hugos, as well as aftermath observations.

As you can tell, I like doing series of posts with multiple entries, whether special features, or the regular ones shown above.  Hopefully you all enjoy the developing structure.
