Remember when I said I was going to sit down and put some thought into what this blog was going look like in 2017? Well I did! 😀
It was accidental organization… I had to do something while I was waiting for the paint to dry on my small army of Fat Animal Magnets. (Christmas gifts, I can haz!)
So, looking over 2015 and 2016, my posts boiled down to a few things:
- How-to/Informational posts
- Status/Planning posts
I plan on continuing to post these sorts of things, so I figured I should base the new posting schedule around that. I really want to focus in on getting new stories and new artwork done, so I was trying to push those things to the forefront. However I also have a lot of older Artwork and Writing that needs posting to fill in the gaps in the galleries and archives.
That made the one-post-a-day a little complicated, so I figured I would need three timeslots to sort them all out! 🙂
- (9am) – New Content
- (2pm) – Old Content
- (9pm) – Status Reports
Thus if I have something to post I automatically know what time it will be posted… but what day? I did a mock-up schedule that you can see in the image above, but the more I looked at it the more it I’m not sure how well it will work.
I tend to work in waves for New Content, sometimes it’s mostly Art and sometimes mostly Writing. So setting aside days I can only use for one or the other just means there will be a lot of empty slots in the calendar. So I think the 9am posts will be ‘as I get them finished’ instead of a set schedule. (Obviously the Saturday Story Prompts will stay put! 😉 )
The Old Content and the Status Reports are easy enough to fit into a schedule, so hmm… *pokes calendar*
January will be my test month and I’ll review the progress come February and then adjust as needed.
