With Election Day now behind us, there are a couple of announcements I want to make about my upcoming blog schedule, as we head into the holidays:
- I will not publish posts on the following Mondays over the next few months: November 11 (Veterans Day), November 25 (Monday before Thanksgiving), December 23 (Monday before Christmas), December 30 (Monday before New Year’s Day), January 20 (Martin Luther King Jr. Day), and February 17 (Presidents Day). These breaks from publishing have given me much-needed breaks in past years, especially around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.
- That being said, during this stretch around Christmas/New Year’s, I will publish a blog wrap-up for this calendar year. Last year, I experimented with publishing a series of social media posts that highlighted my most read post, my most liked post, the post that received the most comments, etc. However, doing this became challenging for me to keep up with during a time when I was hoping to take it easy. Instead, I will try to publish a single blog post that makes note of some (if not many) of the same highlights (as well as some highlights I didn’t mention in my social media posts last year, such as the blogging awards I received), and this will come in the form of a blog wrap-up for the calendar year. I’m tentatively thinking of publishing this post the day after Christmas, but this is very much subject to change depending on how the holidays are for me. It’s the first time I’m trying this, so I’ll welcome the feedback when/after the post is published!
That’s it for now. Happy reading, and I hope everyone is having a good fall (or spring, if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere)!

That’s a great way to wrap up the year and give yourself a bit of a break at the same time. I may have to consider something similar, for I currently spend 12 or more hours every day, 7 days a week, on my blog, and I just cannot do that and also participate in the holidays with shopping, baking, wrapping, decorating, etc. Thanks for the idea!

I don’t have nearly as much time to spend on my blog–when I add work/travel to and from work, eating, chores, chatting with friends, sleeping, etc., I only have an hour or two to dedicate to blogging, at most, each day, with some more time on weekends. The holidays will be crazy though, so going at a slower pace with my blog at that time makes sense. I’m glad I gave you an idea!

Ahhhh … if I worked, I wouldn’t have either, but I retired in 2008, so my time is pretty much my own. Still, I do have family and a home … and, of course, the Feral Five! 😉
