Hard to believe that we’re reaching the end of 2015 and Baby Smith is almost here.
I’ve been hard at work getting as much in order as I can before my life is about to turn upside down! Going without regular sleep has never been a forte of mine, so I have a feeling it’s going to be a bit of a struggle for me. As such, I’ve been prepping meals, cleaning the house, getting final pieces of work in order, oh and buying a house. Yeah, that’s taken up a bit of time.
And the blog!
I haven’t forgotten about the blog, not at all, I’ve more just been trying to figure out what it will look like for the foreseeable future. It’s a tricky one. The posts that seem to have resonated the most lately have been my pregnancy updates, so I imagine that you’ll want to keep hearing about Baby Smith for a while yet. We’ve been traveling less this year, what with shingles and the baby bump a-growing, so I’m starting to run out of fresh material. I’ve also been sleeping SO MUCH lately, that I haven’t got a ton of writing-related material to share with you.
Essentially, I don’t want to post for the sake of posting. I’d rather you be reading well-thought through, quality posts, not just something I threw together at the last minute to meet my 3 times a week blogging schedule. It serves neither you nor I.
As such, I’m definitely planning to pull back on the number of posts for a while. Maximum twice a week, but perhaps only one. I have a few pre-scheduled so that I can take some time to chill out with Baby Smith when he or she arrives. My hope is that come April/May 2016 I’ll be back to the 3x/week schedule, as 2016 has a lot of excitement in store. I’ll be spending almost a month in the UK, so will have plenty to write about from a travel perspective. I’ll have also attended many cool Alberta Romance Writers’ Association workshops, so I’ll have much more to share on the writing front.
Basically, I think I’ll have to be pretty flexible with posts from now until April. In the meantime, I hope to bring you good quality posts.
If there are topics that you’re interested in hearing about (think writing/reading, travel, pregnancy and/or newborn related), leave a note in the comments and I’ll try and write about it!
Wishing you all a great holiday season and a Happy New Year! Please keep connecting with me, commenting on posts and letting me know what you’d like to ready about.
