This is the QE daily schedule. A world without a schedule…is chaos (at least it is for me).
Monday: Book blurb day or a new post. I’ve read more than thirty books on writing since I started this page. Every now and then I toss together a collage and write a blurb about a book. (My “reads” category contains examples.) It’s not really a review, but an insight about the content of the book. Again, this is my way of offering you all the resources I can and populating the page with useful content.
Tuesday/Sunday: Off days. I wanted a couple days of the week to spend my allotted blogging time reading other blogs and commenting. If I post every day, I simply don’t have enough time to reply to comments and reach out beyond my own page.
As I will start the publishing process early next year, I want to make Wednesday a day to also share news about what’s going on with me professionally (woes, successes, conventions I’m attending, etc). I’m also working with some amazing authors as an editor. I want to spotlight them here as well, when possible.
Thursday: A new and glorious post.
Feature Friday. This is one my favorite additions to my page. I will continue taking a day each week to highlight other bloggers who are generating insightful content. If you are sitting there reading this and thinking, “Hey! He’s talking about me.” Contact me and I will add you to my reblog list. I am fortunate to have great readership here at QE, and if my success can propel others it’s a small way for me to give back.
I have also decided to allow for reader contributions on Fridays. This was a suggestion made to me by P.A. Kramer. The more I thought about it, the more I loved the concept. This is a great way for bloggers to take advantage of my readership and get some eyes on both their content and their blog pages. Again, my goal has always been to bring like-minded people together.
I will only post submissions that are centered around some aspect of writing. Ideally, the content should be around 700-1000 words in length. If images are included, they must be non-copyrighted images (I can generate images if needed). Contact me if you have a proposal.
Saturday: Re-post day. Recycling previous posts will help people new to the site or to WordPress connect with my older content. It also helps me. It allows me to continuously edit, improve, and add links to my archived material. I learn a lot from my discussions with all of you, my work as an editor, and my labors as a writer. I want to be sure my past posts reflect newfound knowledge and continue to be relevant.
