My Summer Of Blogging Lightly

 √  I did things differently on The Spectacled Bean this summer.    

  • I only posted to this blog once a week.
  • I talked about things in a general way.  Rarely personal.  Everything light.
  • I shared more photos than I have in the past.

But doing the foregoing turned out to be more difficult than I’d anticipated.  What I did not take into consideration was that I’m in the habit of always being on the lookout for something to talk about here on The Spectacled Bean.  I’ve been doing this a long time, you know?  So it felt kind of weird to not tell you the details about what was going on around here.   

√  Be that as it may, here are my conclusions about my ~ It’s Summertime ~ idea:

  • I like posting on Tuesday.
  • I enjoy doing a few lightweight posts, but not all the time.
  • I miss writing in the moment about the crazy situations that make up much of my life.
  • I feel like my writing skills atrophy when I restrict myself to short & infrequent posts.
  • I don’t mind adding photos to my posts… which means that I need to take more photos. 

√  And on that note, I officially declare this summer experiment in blogging to be over.  I plan on returning to my 2 or 3 times per week posting schedule.  Because this is an old-school style personal journal type of blog I have no idea what I’ll be talking about next,  but I hope that you’ll check back daily from time-to-time to see what flapdoodle & twaddle vitally compelling & important topic I’m dithering on about discussing here at The Spectacled Bean.  You know you want to.

Quirky. Funny. Curious. With a twist of attitude. And the ability to write about it.

  1. I hope for more flapdoodle! Just ’cause I think it’s a funny word. Flapdoodle! And I always enjoy seeing photos. (Well, maybe not *always*. I mean, sometimes there are things that are better left to the imagination. And sometimes there things that really aren’t worth a photo. But generally, I do enjoy seeing photos. And I have enjoyed *your* photos.)

  2. I enjoy reading your thoughts whether they are light weight or more serious – you have a unique perspective. I’m looking forward to reading more of them.

    1. Thank you Zazzy. You’re not the first person to say that my perspective is [well] unique… although you may have said it in the most polite way ever!

  3. I LIVE for crazy posts!!They are so interesting. I write them just about every time I blog. Of course, I do have crazy things going on in my life which adds to the nuttiness of my blog. ;) I adore photos too.

    1. Margaret, what a delightful endorsement of crazy blogging. It seems like there should be a distinct category for those of us who are random + sincere. If there can be Mommy Bloggers & Political Bloggers & Lifestyle Bloggers, then why not Nutty Bloggers?

  4. More dithering! Variety is the mice of strife! If it ain’t fun bloggin’ why you sloggin’?
    We’ve enjoyed summer lite, now on with the go!
    Oh, it that wonderful piggy guy a bloggy atrophy award? If not, why not?

      1. IF it’s OK, I’d like to save that “Award” image as for future Atrophy Posts – you know when it’s just not going to get done/ traveling. I’ll credit you as the creator – and send you a note? I don’t know this whole post struck me as very funny – especially that pix.

  5. I, for one, will look forward to reading more of your posts. I think we all blog for different reasons, and it’s nice when other people like (or at least appreciate) our crazy lives!

    1. Cheri, thanks for the encouragement. I agree with you that everyone keeps a blog for his or her own reasons & I think that the longer you blog the more your reasons change. Or at least mine have. I care much less about expressing myself now & much more about having fun with it.
