I’m in an exceptionally good mood today, my babies. The weekend is almost here, the Ultimate Blog Challenge ends in less than a week (and I have posted EVERY day since July 1…go me!), and a lot of changes are coming to The Daily Hottentots starting this Sunday! I hope you like everything I have planned because I do write with you, the reader, in mind. Your input is important to me.
So what sort of changes can you expect here? Well, for one thing, I am getting rid of the weekly themes that I haven’t paid much attention to. Since it’s not working for me anymore, I have decided to switch to daily themes. Here is what the week is going to look like from now on—let me know what you think!
Something Random Sunday
Each Sunday is to the first random thing that pops into my head. And, trust me, I have a lot of weird, random thoughts.
Forget about hating Mondays, ladies and gentlemen. It’s a fabulous day! Each Monday I am going to bring you a post that I hope will inspire and motivate you.
The 6 Songs series is officially history. Replacing it is Tunesday Tuesday, a day that will highlight one song and explore the imagery or emotions it brings up, or the deeper meaning behind the lyrics.
Writing Prompt Wednesday
Each Wednesday I am going to choose a writing prompt from somewhere and build a post around it. The result could be a list, a short story, a poem, a letter I won’t send, etc. You never know what is going to happen on this day.
Trending Topic Thursday
Believe it or not, one of my big obsessions is keeping up with what’s trending on the web. BUT, I like to keep up with trends that are just now rising or have the potential to become hot topics. I tend to stay away from BS like the TomKat divorce. I also like local trends that might not make the national spotlight. So if you, dear reader, have a story that you think everyone should know about, please contact me.
Favorite Quote Friday
This is a series that you all know and hopefully love as much as I do. If you are new to The Daily Hottentots, Favorite Quote Friday is a weekly series that features one of my favorite quotes (I have thousands) and builds a whole blog post around it. The result is usually something that inspires you to act in one way or another.
Silent Star Saturday
Silent Star Saturday is my favorite day to post! And it seems to be a very popular series with my readers as well. Each week features an actor or actress who made it big in motion pictures during the silent era. Some of these stars had lucrative careers once sound film took over the business, some of them didn’t.
And that, ladies and gents, is the new weekly schedule. What do you think? I hope you like it. If you don’t, please I beg you to complain and tell me what you would like to see instead. My first thoughts are about my readers and what they want.
One more thing before I let you all go… The Daily Hottentots will be turning two months old on August 14, and I have decided to give it a facelift. meaning that it will be getting a new header, color scheme, and other things. I like the theme I have now (green is my favorite color), but I’m ready for a slight change. It won’t be anything too different, I promise you.
Thank you all for reading me and I hope to hear from you soon!
