If we were having coffee, I’d be more relaxed than you’ve seen me in weeks. I was up by 6 am today for the first Saturday in over a month. The spring semester is finally done and little people school doesn’t end for a couple of weeks. That means I have a brief window of time to get ahead with some writing and catch up with a few friends.
I’d tell you Shawn over at Down Home Thoughts is taking a survey about values for a book he is writing. He asked me to help him spread the word back during the A to Z madness, and I’m just getting around to it. Here’s the survey; I took it myself a few minutes ago.
And I’d tell you I HOPE I am about to turn the corner on the social media organization madness. I’ve just about got Facebook sorted out after months of experimenting, and I plan to get back to Twitter and spend a lot of time looking at blogs and sharing them this weekend.
The summer run of Feminist Fridays are scheduled, and my first three Sandman posts for Comparative Geeks are completely finished. Now I am thinking about when to re-start my Tolkien series at Part Time Monster and try to push it to a conclusion. That series has been good for us, and it’s nice to have draft material of that quality and length to keep working on. But it’s been a time-consuming, never-ending task.
I’m ready to be done writing literary essays on the blogs. They take too long and don’t play well enough for the time and effort that go into them. That doesn’t mean I plan to stop writing about Tolkien, nor contributing to Part Time Monster. I’m just convinced that the way to keep growing, at this point, is to go shorter and lighter with the blog posts.
That’s about all I’d have to say today. There are a lot of people with new things in the works, both for the blogosphere and other social media. But I’ll leave those for another day, and hopefully catch up with you sometime this weekend.
Don’t forget to add your post link to the linky list at Part Time Monster and share it with #WeekendCoffeeShare on Twitter.
