The Rabyd Skald – New Year and Blog Changes

Happy Moon’s Day.

As I come into the new year I just need to make some blogging and writing announcements and offer up some thanks to my readers.  It should be noted that my last post I passed a milestone of 100 posts on this blog and this is 101.

Firstly with the new year you are going to see some changes in the pages at the top of the blog.  Mostly this is a practical change as after three months the pages are getting a little crowded with posts so I need to start breaking things down by two month intervals each with their own page which will be sub page under the main headings. I am going to make sure more links are available for navigation purposes.

There are also going to be new pages reflecting some new post types. I already started the page for Crossing Bifrost my new series on Norse Mythology.   I will also be starting a new fictional page for sort stories and poems under a new heading of some sort. That will make its debut in January sometime.

My daily writing schedule this coming year will hopefully look something like this.

Blogging: (every day) 

  1. Page the previous days posts.
  2. Edit today’s post.
  3. Write tomorrow’s post.
  4. Write blog fiction for a half hour

Writing: ( 4/ days a week) 

  1. Edit previous writing
  2. Put 1000 words on paper.

I thought about this a lot and I don’t find this overly ambitious considering a lot of things that used to take up my time like school and ministry are no longer present. I must consider being a writer as a possible career or side career and this is as good a time as any to do so.

Thank You and Happy New Year:

I want to thank all my readers for this year. If you hung around the whole thing you know I went through three blogs, a thousand personal crises and tremendous stressful change. If you hung around and were supportive though all that, I give you my most sincere thanks. Thank You and mostly thank you for reading no matter who you are.  It’s what writers live for – to be read.

Finally, Best wishes for the New Year. May 2019 be your best year yet.
