Blog Prep For 2019

2019 is right around the corner. I have no idea where 2018 went… I don’t even know where December is going. I can’t believe we’re just about halfway through the month. It’s crazy.

December has always been a month of reflection and prep for me. Looking back of all that I’ve accomplished this year and looking ahead to see how I can improve and keep going in the following year. There’s a lot I plan to do in 2019, so this month hasn’t been any different from past Decembers.

I’ve been brainstorming and getting things prepped for 2019 since September/October. I don’t know why, but I always get in the mood to look ahead to the new year around that time. Maybe that’s why things go so fast. I rush it without meaning to.

Anyway…

2019 will be big!

My blog posts and the type of content I publish will be slightly different next year. Nothing too drastic, but more “personal” and “real,” if you will. I’ll also be doing something a little different with the guest posts that I host on the blog as well.

I’m thinking of new marketing ideas for the blog along with other things (you know, like my book).

There will also be three new… things? Features? Whatever you want to call them. I’m still working on them and have no idea when they’ll start, but I’m hoping all of them will happen in 2019. One will be on the blog, one is for the blog but on something else, and the other is unrelated to the blog.

So, there are those three things along side regular blogging and writing. I’ve gotten a decent head start on things though, so hopefully soon!

With that said, there’s still a lot of prep work I need to do for the month of December. It’s not easy with the holidays, but I’m excited and hope you guys will enjoy the many things to come!

I Need Your Input – 2019

So… 2019 is right around the corner. How in the world did that happen?

New Features

So many new things will be coming in 2019 and I can’t wait to share them with you all, but… today is not that day.

There was no reason for me to include this section into the post.

I Need Your Input

I’m going to be doing things a little differently on the blog in 2019. The daily schedule will remain the same – I’ll still post short stories, writing prompts, and book reviews as well as guest posts, interviews, and the like.

However, I usually have a monthly “theme” that goes along with the blog. For example, last January I talked a lot about character development. Sometimes I talk about editing or the mystery genre (hence Mystery Month in May).

This has been a lot and if I’m going to be honest, I’m kind of running out of ideas.

I still plan on doing monthly themes but not all the posts will be about the specific. I’m going to do my life and personal posts and more updates on my own writing and such.

With that said, I want to know what you want to know.

  • Are there any topics you want to learn about? (Creative writing, blogging, reading, etc.)
  • Is there anything you want to know about me and my work?
  • Are there specific blog posts you have in mind? (Not necessarily a vague category such as “creative writing.”)

I enjoy doing the research and learning alongside you guys. I have my own ideas but I want to know what you guys want to see on the blog.

This doesn’t have to strictly be writing or anything either. I plan to add more life-style-type blog posts. Honestly, I think that will be a blog post in itself and I’ll explain why I’ve decided to do that. (Though that post won’t come until January.)

Let Me Know In The Comments!

I really want to hear your input! I value your opinions and am trying to make this space bigger and better. I’m looking forward to 2019!
