I’ve mused a little bit on how I might continue my blog into 2011. I may have intended this blog-a-day thing to persist for longer than a year when I started it up, but I think I’ll be a little happier if I don’t force myself to keep updating at that rate. I do still expect to have things to talk about, but it’ll probably end up being a few times a week as opposed to once a day. As I was pondering how to get myself on a reasonable blogging plan today, I realized that I might be able to leverage themes into the solution I need – “sub-blogs” for each theme, or sublogs for short. (That makes them subordinate world wide web logs, I guess? A lot of definition packed into a few letters!)
There are three separate themes I thought about today, each of which could become a reasonable, regular part of a total blogging effort. The first was a project diary, kind of like what Alexis has done with her blog recently, to keep track of my thoughts, feelings and plans on a particular project, like a new website or a game. The second was a memorable quotes/lyrics repository, in the manner of Rachel’s wonderful blog – you may have noticed I have a random lyric I enjoy near the bottom-side of this page, and I could use the blog space to talk a little bit about the source, the quote, or why I like it. The third was newly created alcohol beverages – I happened to make myself a Black Sand Sunrise this evening, for example – that I could list the instructions for and then do a little review. Such a sublog could also do new recipes for food dishes. And these are just three possibilities!
Clearly, there’s a lot I still want to talk about as we roll into 2011. I just need to make sure I put myself into the right mindset and make it easy to do it the way I want.
Oh, and btw, Merry Christmas!
