In reviewing the blog for this past year, I have noticed that my blogging subjects, outside of the immediate news tends to the haphazard. I will often mix law, campaign/politics, education, and other matters in a big jumble, often on the same day. I have also lost track of the Weekly Listen, not providing as much information on what music I am listening to at the time. Most people don't really care but, I do and perhaps other people do as well.
But while the blog may lack organization, I don't have the money right now to move off the Blogger platform to get my own domain name or have categories of postings. I also realize that I post a great deal about the news of the day, things that capture my attention and that I don't want to ignore. Those posts are going to continue.
I also want to undertake a particular effort, one that is much more personal in nature on this blog. I will explain the Photo-A-Day Project in another post.
So now that it has taken this long, here are my three resolutions for Going to the Mat in 2006:
- To publish substantive posts (500-1000 words) on the following subjects on the following days and limit off-topic posts to news pointers and short, 1 paragraph reactions:
- Mondays--Campaign Finance/Election Law
- Tuesdays--School News/Education Policy
- Wednesdays--Campaigns and Elections
- Thursdays--Legal Developments outside of Election Law
- Fridays--Anything Goes
- Saturdays--Music/Book Reviews
- Sundays--Week In Review--What I think of as the big story of the week
- To undertake the Photo-A-Day Project--a daily posting of a photo I have taken, preferably in the last 24 hours
- To publish a review (complete with an interview, if possible) of a blog I like every week
Although it is not the new year yet, I hope to begin implementing these resolutions now.
