Blogging thoughts

I have been thinking about my blog a lot lately, then while I was catching up on blog reading I came across this post from Sian about planning your posts. It immediately caught my attention and I started thinking more about the content of my blog.

I am worried that my blog is becoming boring, As I am a SAHM at the moment (without a car I may add!) I don't really get up to much other than looking after children and of course my crafts. I don't have any really exciting stories to share as I don't really go anywhere, so with that in mind I have decided to change the way that I post. This isn't set in stone as I may decide it is too much hard work, Lol!

I have devised a blogging schedule, I am going to start with a few days then build it up if it is working ok. So here goes:

MONDAYS will now be Scrapbooking/Papercraft day, I will share current projects or ideas of things I am going to make. This will also help with my memory of what I want to make when I can no longer remember!!!!

TUESDAYS I am going to leave for the moment, I do have an idea though!

WEDNESDAYS are also going to be left for the moment.

THURSDAYS will be knitting related.

FRIDAYS will be dedicated to Project 365, That way I may actually get a bit more up to date!

SATURDAYS will now be for 'Photo of the week', I'm quite excited about this one and I hope I actually get some good piccys to share!

SUNDAYS will remain 'Getting to know you Sundays' where I answer the questions set every Sunday on THIS BLOG.

I will still do random posts here and there with things that spring up and I am going to blog through Learn Something New Everyday rather than save up a weeks worth of pages for the Monday.

.....And as it is Monday today, I had better kick-start the schedule. I have managed to complete June's Document 2010!!!! Go me!

Well, I think that's about it for the moment. Let me know what you think, is there a particular day that you will be paying attention to?

I don't find your posts boring, seeing your crafty bits....and how the kids are your knitting especially. I always read your posts...even when I don't have time to comment.Look forward to the 'new look'.

I agree with Jacky, nothing boring about your blog Rachel! But sometimes it's nice to just shake things up a bit so I do understand why you are restructuring things. Looking forward to seeing your new scheduled posts!

wow, it's lovely that I got you thinking (great photo for that!) - please never think your blog is boring though :) With your great mix of projects and stories about those lovely kids? Never!

Your schedule sounds great - I keep to posting on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays because if I didn't I'd forever be saying "Oh, I'll leave it til tomorrow" . Once you get going I'll be interested to hear which days are the most popular - I was wondering what days other bloggers had the most visitors because I read about someone saying Saturdays were great for them; and Sat is actually my slowest day.

Keep on blogging!

I am never bored by your blog Rachel, I love clicking over here :-) Your projects are gorgeous (witness the one you've shared today!) and your children are so cute, and I like everyday snippets of life. So I'll be interested in each and every one of the days you have planned lol! xx
