Hello? Hello? Is anyone there?

Sunday, December 22, 2013
Hi everybody.

There's been, well, radio silence on the blog for the past week and I owe you an explanation. Basically it's this: I've been reconsidering what I want to do on The Page Sage.

When I first started my blogging schedule (Reviews Monday, Top Ten Tuesday, Bookish Buys Friday, IMM Sunday), it was to ensure that I posted regularly. And it has definitely worked (well, up until recently), and I'm glad I established the schedule, but now... Now it's more of a hindrance than a help.

Picture this: It's a Sunday night and I have an hour of free time. Perfect chance for that discussion post I've been meaning to write...oh, but tomorrow is Monday, which means I need a review. The discussion post is pushed aside until a later date, and keeps getting pushed aside, and keeps getting pushed aside, and so on.

Reviews are great and all, but they're pretty cut-and-dry. I want to be able to be more creative and, most importantly, have more fun on here.

So you know what? To heck with the schedule! I am revamping The Page Sage and writing more of the posts I want to write.

To clarify:

Will I still be posting regularly?

Yes, just not on preplanned days that don't work with my "real life" schedule.

Does this mean there will never again be a book review on The Page Sage?

Of course not! I'll still be reviewing books, but I won't be forcing myself to- basically, I'll sporadically review (exceptions will be review copies that need to be reviewed by a certain date).

What about Top Ten Tuesday?

I won't be participating regularly. Maybe I will if there's a topic that really catches my fancy, but I've become a little tired of this meme.

So what will be posted?

Discussion posts, Author Adoration posts, random posts, reviews. Hopefully more creative posts!

What do you think of these changes?

  1. I think it's a great idea! A few thoughts:
    1) Would the literary equivalent of "radio silence" be "blank pages?"
    2) Maybe you'd consider cutting Top Ten Tuesday down to Top Two Tuesday....it would save time.
    3) Top 10 Tuesday would be so much cooler if one of the topics was "Top 10 Animals You Wish You Could Morph Into"
    4) Did you know that R.L. Stine's pen name was "Jovial Bob Stine"? Now you do!
    5) You gotta admire the Boxcar Children. They went straight from living in a boxcar to a mansion, skipping all the other cars on the train. The Locomotive Kids would have been a cool name.

  2. Whatever you need to do is fine. It's your blog; do what works for you and makes you happy. :)

  3. I totally think you should do whatever's best for YOU! That's the thing about blogging, it's so adaptable to whatever is going on in your life. I totally get what you mean about Top Ten Tuesday, I think I'm not going to participate weekly either. But still...*hugs*
