Today is Monday, the first day of the working week. It is also the first day of June and, here in Australia, the official first day of winter.
It is almost like a new year. While most people restrict their attempts at resolutions to a new calendar year on the first of January, there are plenty of other opportunities to turn over a new leaf if you choose to look for them. However, the midst of an ongoing global pandemic may not be the best time to consider starting afresh. Or, perhaps it is.
I am thinking of ruling a line under the past few months and moving forward.
For almost 3 weeks I have added a blog post every day. I have never made daily posts for an extended period previously and I have been writing this blog for over 9 years now. It has been an experiment on several levels. Could I maintain this level of engagement consistently now that I am retired? Does self-isolation (mostly) make it easier to write blog posts every day? Do I want to lock myself into writing every day? Will I always have appropriate new content every day? Are readers looking for new content every day? Could I intersperse blog posts every 2-3 days with Instagram posts on a specific Organised Castle Instagram account?
Dear readers, I am really keen to hear your thoughts on the frequency, length, content and photos of my blog posts. Also, do you go back and look at older material or click on the related links I sometimes provide? I look forward to your honest thoughts and opinions.
Meanwhile, I am about to prepare the vegetables for dinner. We are having one of our favourite cool weather meals – roast vegetables and gravy which I will serve with some green beans from the garden.
While the oven is on, I will also make a Lemon Delicious and some more Cheese Scones to store in the freezer. These are great for serving with a bowl of piping hot soup.
