Fall Preview and Revised Social Media Strategy

This post is to let you know what to expect from Sourcerer over the next couple of months. The next month is the busiest time of the year for me offline, and I can already tell  our views are going to take a hit this month. That’s not unexpected. If you’ll recall, I predicted a month ago that we’d have a down month in July or August. It’s been a phenomenal summer, but fall is upon me even though the weather hasn’t changed yet.selfportrait1

Since I don’t have time to blog all-out for the next month, I’m going to focus on reorganizing my social media (which I’ve already started doing) and on keeping up with other bloggers. That means one post per day, except on weeks when I have too many contributions to keep it to one a day. It also means I won’t be doing many long-form written posts of my own here.

I’m engaged to blog about the new season of Doctor Who for Part Time Monster, I am in the process of rebooting my own blog, Just Gene’O, and I want to do some posting for Quaint Jeremys Thoughts. I’ve always considered myself the administrator of this blog rather than the owner. I’m willing to allow it to stand or fall based on the quality of the contributions we’re able to publish. At minimum, though, I’ll make sure it’s updated with photoblogs, music videos, and open threads while I’m reorganizing. Basically, I’ll keep it flowing until everyone has time to contribute again.

A quick status update on the features you’re accustomed to seeing here:

Feminist Friday — I don’t know that I’ll be ready to start it back up this week. The consensus of the people I collaborate closely with on this feature seems to be that I need to do a review/restart post at the Monster before we begin the next round. I’m in agreement, but I have to find the time to review the last six weeks of discussions and write the post. That’s unlikely to happen by Friday. These discussions will be back, though, and in the meantime, I’ll promote Feminist Friday posts for other bloggers if I’m given enough lead time to do it.

Sunday/Monday Blogging Posts — On hold for two or three weeks. This one will also come back because it’s the most popular thing aside from photoblogging, that I, personally, do. I enjoy writing specifically for bloggers and I love it when people tell me the info in those posts was helpful. Long-term, it’s not going anywhere.

Weekend Coffee Posts — Rather than doing these exclusively on Saturdays, I’ll do them on the day that makes the most sense. On some weeks, that could mean Monday mornings Eventually, they’ll  move back to Just Gene’O.

Photoblogging — I’ll be doing quite a bit of it here over the next couple weeks, but as soon as it’s feasible, I’m cutting Sourcerer back to one photos a week and doing most of my photoblogging at Just Gene’O, Part Time Monster, and Quaint Jeremy’s Thoughts.

If you’re collaborating with me or following on several social media networks, you want to read the rest of this, but have a great week, whether you read the rest or not 🙂 It’s been a fabulous summer, and I appreciate all the stop-bys, likes, comments, and links. thanks
