On My Mind, Question Of The Moment, & Inspired Creations

http://icanhascheezburger.com/2007/01/28/dude-4/
When I was thinking about the end of this month coming and getting my blog back to normal, I came up with a few ideas. Okay, I already had the ideas, but I came up with a different approach. Originally, I wanted to just do some random and bookish and fun posts. Now? I want to make them into mini personal memes. Not necessarily always weekly or monthly memes. More like, sometimes on certain days, but sometimes when the mood strikes me. I may change my mind about that later, for now, I want to be flexible and see where it takes me.

Below are the ideas I want to do. Read about them. I'd like to know what you think!


"On My Mind"

The idea behind "On My Mind" is just that--talking about what's currently on my mind, bookish or not. If I'm having an obsessive day (regarding Gossip Girl or Castle), I'll talk about my obsession. If I've discovered a new band or can't stop listening to a song, I'll share a video of it. If I've been thinking about a certain reading or writing issue, I'll talk about it. There are just those times when I want to go off on something I like or don't like and just write something completely off topic.


"Question Of The Moment"

I write a lot of articles about writing, blogging, and reading topics. I want to also do some mini segments, posing questions that are book/writing related, give a short answer, and open it up for my readers to answer. Sometimes I just sit around wondering what other book lovers and writers think, and this seems to be a little way to find out. Don't worry though--I'll still have my longer posts on different bookish topics.


"Inspired Creations"

Remember when I guest posted on Alison Can Read with Twilight Inspired Jewelry? I had so much fun putting that together that I want to make more of them. Etsy is completely full of all things handmade and inspired. I've got some possibilities in mind, book series related and otherwise. I love to look through all those things, and sometimes I get tempted enough to buy them. Maybe I'll even be inspired enough to make some things too.


So... what do you think? Do they sound fun to you?

  1. Is it bad that I tend to love all posts that aren't book related? I love book reviews but sometimes I want a change and personal memes are great for that. And if you want to have a general discussion about Gossip Girl along the way, well, who am I to argue?? But don't use your Hunger Games etsy stuff yet! I need it for next month! LOL

    1. Hahaha! Not a problem, Lan! I'm saving it for you. ;) I've got one on bookmarks all written up already. And YES, stuff that's not book related but something else I like related catches my eye all the time. And we can totally discuss Gossip Girl (and Dair v. Chair) anytime. ;)
