Pacing Change At Allison’s Book Bag
Posted August 12, 2013on:
Summer’s almost over, school’s about to start, and I’m feeling the crunch of time. In addition, some readers have shared with me that they’re finding it difficult to keep up with all my posts. With these two needs in mind, I’ve started thinking about some changes at Allison’s Book Bag.
When I first launched Allison’s Book Bag, I posted a review a week. Within six months, I rediscovered the delight of research and started adding author interviews and biographical information. This led to me posting a few times a week, a reasonable pace which I kept for the first two years and garnered me a modest average of forty hits per day. Just as importantly, I received lots of compliments.
What it didn’t garner me, however, were regular comments. My husband, whom you might remember inspired this blog, suggested I mix things up. And so I have with news posts, opinion posts, quick reviews, and most recently participation in MEMES. The result is now I post two times a day except on Sundays. The practice has led to many more comments, about the same about hits, and more tiredness on my part.
With the intention of finding a little more balance, I’m cutting back to the below schedule. You’ll notice from it that there are still two days when I might post twice. That’s because I’m addicted to the Snapshot and Six-Word Memes, and so they’re probably here to stay.
- Monday: News & Views OR Interview with Picture Book Author
- Tuesday: Current Read OR Picture Book Review
- Wednesday: Wish List OR Book Teaser
- Thursday: Booking OR Author Teaser
