So I like Tuesdays.

Tuesdays are currently the first day of my weekend, my Saturday. I generally don’t try to get much done on Tuesdays, apart from planning what I’m going to get done on Wednesday, which, let’s face it, often doesn’t wind up getting done at all. Today, for example, I’ve done a lot of cleaning and laundry (productive, but sort of stress relieving and restful in its own way) and a bit of knitting and dog loving and now I’m thinking about blogging. As in, what do I want to do with this blog? How do I be better at paying attention to the blog? How do I make this a regular part of my day?

I think the answer is structure. I follow a lot, I mean, a LOT of blogs, and most of the ones I like best are just a little bit predictable. I’d like to be the sort of girl who blogs something five days a week (ohhh, ambition), and I’d like to have the sort of blog that follows a pattern of sorts. Here’s what I’m thinking:

Mondays will be the day for other people’s words. I’d like to use Mondays to link to other articles I think are interesting, or post other people’s poetry, or invite friends to write something. Plus I won’t have to think much on Monday. Not that Mondays are all that difficult for me, but still.

Tuesdays, I want to post things I like. More specifically, cheap things I like. Many of the fashion and lifestyle blogs I follow are constantly telling me that I can achieve happiness by purchasing $300 dresses and $45 mascara and $1500 pairs of shoes. No offense, fashion blogging masses – I adore you, but let’s face it. Buying those shoes will not make me happier in the long run. Buying those shoes will make me poor. So, on Tuesdays, I’m going to present you with one silly, superficial, short term way you, yes you, can buy a little happiness for $5 or less. The perfect price for a temporary retail high. 🙂

Wednesdays I’ll try to write a good God observation for the week, as has been my usual routine so far.

Thursdays will be poetry days. Mostly to force me to write.

And Fridays I get to do whatever the heck I want. Cause that’s what Fridays are for. Knitting, or linking, or rambling, or lists, or fun things to do in PDX… Friday is choose my own adventure day.

What do you think? I’m going to give it a shot, anyhow… we’ll see how well we do.

    >Yes please post 5 days a week. I think this is a wise decision to entertain us all. So very giving of you 🙂

    >I agree with Tamara's opinion, and with you on system. Systems are the only way I ever move from ambition to action. Can't wait!
