I've been kind of MIA lately. The holidays kicked in and with all the additional activities, events, and such, blogging (among other things) went to the back burner.
That doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about being here. I just haven't had the time.
For the new year, I'm hoping to establish somewhat of a blogging schedule of general topics. Plus I'm hoping to finally push my husband into having his own vlogging segment.
So far, here's my what I'm thinking about for a schedule.
Mondays- Adrian reviews a children's board game.
Boardgames are my husband's
hobby love life passion, and I think it might be good for him to use all that research and knowledge (not to mention money) for good. If I can convince him, I'd like him to do vlog (video blog, for those not in the know) reviewing a kid's boardgame. It may be one that you've known for years or it might be one you've never heard of, but he'll give you the ins and outs, good and bad. I've provided him with all he needs (a new Flip and TONS of boardgames) so hopefully I can persuade him to get started.
Tuesdays- Something local.
As you probably know, I also blog over at Triangle Mamas. Thing is, I've been pretty silent over there despite having a passion for all things local. Therefore, I'm hoping to force myself to write more locally pertinent posts.
Wednesdays- Children's Book Review
I love picture books and almost everyone I know regularly asks me for book recommendations to send their Amazon order into the free shipping range. I thought it might be nice to do a regular posting along those lines. I mean, there's got to be something great in that stack of 50+ picture books we get from the library every other week.
Thursdays- Children's activity/art project/craft
One of my other passions is teaching. I've written quite a few posts with activities for the little ones and occasionally I add lesson plans. These posts tend to get a pretty positive response and they also tend to be ones I'm pretty proud of. I'm thinking maybe I should try to make them more regular. It might even help me to feel like less of a lazy mom.
Fridays- Gratuitous Linus blogging
You know because the grandparents like it.
Saturdays- Menu and/or Recipe Sharing
If I have to cook, I might as well get a little extra out of it. Plus, I tend to make some pretty yummy -and sometimes healthy- foods.
So what do you think? Y'all are the ones that have to read it, so I definitely want your input.
Anything you enjoy reading that I left out?
Any of the topics above that bore you to death?
