So after a few weeks of being a lazy blogger, I’ve been thinking about how to change things up a bit. My struggle with blogging has always been how to make it relevant to readers.
Let’s face it: no one really cares what I think or do about a given issue.
I mean, my family cares (I hope), but the world at large? Not so much.
I’m not an expert on anything.
I raised kids. I kept the home. And there are plenty of others already blogging on those topics with far more impressive credentials than mine.
After talking with my agent last week (–will I ever get tired of saying that? I don’t think so–) I’ve decided to retool the blog a bit, to make it more reflective of the series I’m currently working on.
The Harts Leap books are set in a resort town just outside of Yosemite. This is an area I’m well acquainted with. There is a quilt shop there that has a fairly prominent role in the first book. I’ve done some quilting. There is also a hoarder. I don’t really know anything about this topic that would make me an expert, but I can do some research.
So, my tentative plan for the blog is:
Monday Musings: My personal thoughts
Book Talk Tuesday: Book reviews as before
Wednesday Wanderings: Thoughts on travel, particularly around Yosemite
Thursday: Occasional Author Spotlights and Cover Reveals, as before
Food Talk Friday: Recipes and Restaurants, as before
That’s my plan! And those are my thoughts for my first Monday Musings. Thanks for stopping by.
Is there anything in particular you’d be interested in hearing about? I’d love for some reader feedback!
