New Blog Structure: An Experiment
So, as I wrote here a while ago, I have wanted more rhythm and consistency in my life. I have made a few steps towards creating rhythm and routine in my life, but it is still a struggle for me. So, I decided that I would maybe bring a little regular rhythm to my blog writing. I want to try a little experiment out for the next 2 or 3 weeks or so and see how it goes. I would like to try having a topic that I have to write on each day… I’m not sure if I’ll like it or not, so, like I said, this will be an experiment and I may give myself the freedom to scrap it all together if I don’t like it. But, here’s what I’m thinking a week might start looking like here at Coffee Klatch
Admiration Mondays – Each Monday I want to write about one person in my life that I admire and respect. I think it’s important that we tell the people in our lives how much we care about them and love them and that we take time to admire the beauty in each of them. God has given me some amazing friends and family and I want to take the time to publicly admire them.
Tuesdays Prayers – This will be a day to post prayers and conversations with God, whether they be my own prayers and conversations or the prayers of others that have touched my heart.
Wednesday Reviews – On Wednesdays I’ll review something – maybe a book I read, or a movie I saw, or a restaurant I went to, or a game I played. It’ll be a time for sharing with all of you about things that I’ve tried out or done and what my reactions where to those things.
Theology Thursdays – This day will be devoted to writing theology type things – so anything having to do with the study of God. It will be the time to write about things I believe about God and also questions I have about God.
Free Fridays – Friday’s will be a free day where I can write about anything I want or can take a break and not write at all.
Linky Saturdays – This will be a day to link to blogs, articles, videos, etc that I found interesting that week. A way of sharing what is going on in the larger web community.
Church Sundays – I’ll take Sunday’s to write about my thoughts on church and my own experiences with church.
Ok, that’s it. So, what do you think? I’m open to suggestions and changing this list a little. In fact it is likely that I will change it and likely that even if I don’t change it I won’t stick with it – I have a really hard time sticking with routines, but I know that they are really good and helpful for me. So, I’m gonna start this on Monday and try it out for a little bit. We’ll see how it goes. I know that I will also probably have other things I want to write about and I will definitely give myself the freedom to write other things in addition to these topics, but I want to start with this structure and then see what happens from there.
