How many of you out there have daily themes for your blog? How long have you been doing it? How do you keep from getting bored?
I know I am asking a lot of questions, but the first thing I thought about when I woke up this morning was that I am just not into the daily theme thing that I started once I got back to the Daily Hottentots. Trending Topic Thursday is especially hard for me because it just does not fit in. This blog relies heavily on motivational/inspirational things, music, and quotes, so a trending topics post close to the end of the week seemed very out-of-place.
Two of people’s favorite regular posts on this blog are Favorite Quote Friday and Silent Star Saturday, so those two will remain. The rest is up in the air at this point or will not continue. I have instead decided to go back to the monthly topics that I had on one of my old blogs. One can do a lot with monthly topics. If the topic is springtime, for instance, I can easily come up with at least 30 blog posts about that off the top of my head. There is a lot of flexibility when you are working with one broad topic. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same thing about daily themes. I feel forced into thinking of something good and my content has suffered because of it.
It may seem as if I am giving up too easily on the changes I made to this blog, considering I just started these new daily themes a couple of weeks ago, but when something just is not working for me, and I cannot figure out a way to keep myself from being bored with it, I kill the idea. It is not worth the trouble for me to continue with it.
And you have to remember, my babies, that this blog is relatively new. I started it in the middle of June and was on a forced hiatus from the internet for a while at the end of July. I am still trying to figure out what works and what sucks. I will figure it out eventually; I can guarantee you that!
Please do not hate me for switching things up on my readers once again! But sometimes you have to do what you have to do to keep going. And if you roll with me, you will have to get used to change because my mind is always working and looking for ways to improve even the tiniest of things.
So starting on Sunday, just pretend that the topic I have chosen to finish the month was what I have posted about all along, okay?
I will see you back here tomorrow for Favorite Quote Friday!
