Time To Shake Things Up

I blog, therefore I am.

And I blog a lot, therefore I am a lot.

But am I too much?

I think so.

As of next week, My Own Private Idaho is going to scale down a bit, and become a M/W/F only blog.  Three times a week seems like a good number to me, and it will let me work on other projects:

- A lot of other bloggers are asking me to write guest posts.  This will free up some time where I can actually do it, instead of flaking out on commitments.

- I'm working on a book.  Yes, a book.  You were warned...

- A fellow marketing blogger gave me a neat little idea for a side-job and I want to pursue that a little bit, to see if it pans out.

- And, of course, I have a day job.

Don't worry, I'll still bring you the funny on a regular basis.  Every now and then I'll deviate from the M/W/F schedule and throw in an extra post or two, but I think this will be good for all of us.

It'll give a chance for Q to keep up with me.

Jewels will think I'm considerate now.  :)

And maybe I'll stress a little less when it's 11pm and I haven't thought of anything funny to say...

For some short and sweet laughs, feel free to follow me on twitter.  I say stupid shit on there all day, and it will keep Tuesdays, Thursdays and the Weekends bearable for you.

On that note, see you Monday!  I'll be doing a fun giveaway, and a post Lady E will be proud of!
Please Share it! :)

I am always proud of you. And now I might be able to keep up too! Yay!

Good idea. Not because we don't all love your posts but absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that shit. I had to cut back a long time ago and it was the best thing I've ever done.

I'm excited for all your new projects! Sounds like a very exciting time to be you.

Blogging too much? Meh. Just write when you have something to say even if it's on a day when you've already posted, just put the story in the fridge for a dry day...

G said...

ooo a book...I look forward to that

Pish Posh said...

I'm scaling back too :) Fair enough! That's only 3 days a week plus twitter I'm able to stick my foot in my mouth and get all aggro in my comments now...

Adsila said...

I can totally relate. I have lots going on too. Glad you will still be giving us your unique perspective on life in Idaho.

Dude, I had no idea how you blogged basically every day and maintained your day job. So this is confirmation that you are, in-fact human. Which means I don't have to go all John Connor on you and destroy you to prevent the robot uprising.

As long as this isn't a steady slope of slowing down, I'm okay with this... I guess the real world has to come first sometimes.

Youngman Brown said...

I try to do MWF and still find it quite difficult to keep up. I have no idea how you did it every day for so long!

The Reckmonster said...

I've scaled back...to like once a month. But it's not because I was blogging too much. It's because I am lazy. BAHAHA!

God bless you man. I used to post on a regular basis and 3 Times a week is more than enough. I'm trying to regain my stamina again.

Mooner Johnson said...

Brandini. You are a selfish bastard and uncaring about the rest of us. Obviously all this attention has made you too fat for your big boy pants and you have turned into an asshole.

After all that we have done for you. Shame on you, pet food boy. Next thing we'll hear is that you support Herr Mitt Rommel for President.

Fuck you.

BTW, maybe now you'll actually do the guest host dealie you promised me.

Thank, Q said...

I'm surprised I'm not getting to this in July! Dude, there's light at the end of the tunnel! I only have one of your blog posts left to read! Thanks for thinking of me and Jewels!

'Tis quite hard to keep up a daily blog and keep involved in other things, isn't it? I try and go daily, but find sometimes I struggle, so I kind of aim for 4-5 posts a week and smile! Keep up the work as it works for you, eh?
