Three Days a Week

After thinking about it for a while, and noticing other bloggers doing the same, I’ve decided to adopt a more relaxed schedule of blogging. It’s time for me to realize that my life doesn’t fit the intense schedule of writing every day. Or at least publishing every day. Nor does my traffic justify or require putting that pressure in myself. (Speaking of which, does anyone still read this thing?)

And, let’s face it, the kind of writing I do and the stuff I write about doesn’t lend itself to that cycle. It’s time for me to let go of that, and all I’ve attached to it, and just focus on the kind if writing I want to do.

So, effective immediately, I’m adopting a schedule of posting on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I’ll still post digest posts, because I’m still reading every day. I might also post “asides” on my “off” days.

Hopefully, the result will be better writing on my part, less frustration, and a better balance between writing and the rest of my life.


  1. OK. (Why, yes, I do still read this and occasionally link.) I’ll move you to the not-every-day blogroll section. When I get to it.

    I expect in a couple of years, I’ll do the same. Meanwhile, I’m just garrulous.

  2. I’m still reading you too – and I’m defintely with you on the relaxed posting schedule. I found myself stressing out far too much a few weeks ago, trying to come up with decent original material, and trying to hard to please an audience, if indeed I have one of those, rather than just pleasing myself. So yeah, stepping back can be a good thing.

  3. Yup, I read it through my Thunderbird mail program, with a bunch of Paralegal blogs.
