My new Posting Schedule

It’s time for me to get back to basics with this site. The idea behind it was always to help other people by sharing the knowledge that I’d gained. Over the last two years (yup, it’s been two years since I started this) I’ve learnt a lot of things about a lot of things, and I’ve shared a lot of that information with you all.

Now that I’m working full time again though, there are fewer slots of time that I can use for blogging, so I’m going to have to be more focused about what I write. Since I released Standardista Table Sorting my time has become an even scarcer resource than previously, as I’m having to reply to a lot more emails asking for help that are coming my way. What this all boils down to is that from now on I’m going to be posting twice per week - once on saturday, once on wednesday. Occasionally, if you’re incredibly lucky, you might even get a bonus post snuck in some other day of the week too.

Even though this is about the amount I’ve been posting already, I feel that by actually having a posting schedule the site will receive a boost in the quality and consistency of its posts. By sticking to a schedule I’ll be able to write posts ahead of time, rather than writing and then immediately posting. I’ll also be able to schedule more time to devote to the development of Standardista Table Sorting, which I know will please a lot of people. I’ll also be able to schedule more time to write new in-depth articles.

But what I want to know is, why are you here? If you’ve subscribed to the RSS feed, what made you do it? What could I do to make work better for you? What sort of things that I write do you actually like to read?

    Hi Neil,

    I found your site via Standardista Table Sorting and found that your range of entries interested me. I like the tone of your writing in general. I’m less interested in your reviews than the rest, for what it’s worth. A publishing schedule is a great idea. I tried it on my site for a while and it worked really well. I lapsed, but the theory was sound.

    Thanks Jemima, I’m glad I’m doing something right to keep reading the site. I’m really hoping I’m going to be able to keep things going with the posting schedule. It should be possible - I’ve just got to keep pushing with it.
