Since this is a holiday (in America), I wanted to say Happy Fourth of July!
I also wanted to (quickly) give a head’s up on how this week’s blog posts were written. I did the majority of them on this weekend. It takes me about a hour (1 hour) to write a typical blog post. This includes drafting the piece, finding the image and sourcing it, adding in the categories and tags, and copying my “Signature Line” from my older posts to make sure the information is accurate (I update them when I have a specific change I need to make, but I don’t go back and update older posts — usually, although sometimes I do, especially for popular posts like the Marvel-related one).
So, 5 blog posts = 5 hours of work. You’d think I’d write them better if I did one a day, but that’s not the way it works. I actually do best when I write them all over the weekend (2-3 a day) and set them (“schedule” them on WordPress) to go live daily. Most weeks that the blog has 4-5 entries per week are ones where I’ve “pre-written” them ahead of time. The weeks where they are 2-3 are generally ones where I write them daily. That’s just the way my brain works.
Now that I’ve rambled on for longer than I intended, I will say adieu, or since this is the most American of American Holidays, I’ll close with the quintessential American closing of: goodbye y’all.
