On a Side Note #4: The Schedule

As you might have noticed did I manage to write – lo and behold – one measly post in Mai.
I had planned more than that.
I wanted to finish another What’cha Watching Wednesday, I wanted to continue my travel log from 2014, I wanted to continue the Fanfiction stuff, that’s been waiting since December and many more things.
But I didn’t do any of it.
Instead I went to couple of things, binge watched a couple of series and was basically not in the mood to write anything.
Since I ended The Weekend Guess my motivation to write something regularly dropped immensely (I haven’t even gotten around to add the other question-collections…).
I can’t even figure out what I would like to do on a regular – weekly ? – basis.
It should be something that takes as little time as the guess, but is just as entertaining/interesting.

What to do?

I can’t make a weekly song-suggestion as I partly did that in the first segment of the Guess and DarkFairy is doing a great job at that already.
I don’t really want to answer questions on a weekly basis like the Montagsfrage (Monday Question) or the Gemeinsam Lesen (Reading Together). Both are great opportunities to think about stuff you usually wouldn’t think about, but they’re also difficult as you kind of have to come up with something to stay in the loop.
With the Reading Together there is also the problem that you have to be reading something to be able to properly participate and even if I got a more or less regular reading habit again, this feels forced sometimes, especially as I’m only able to write the post properly in the evening after work.
Besides Monday and Tuesday are days where my motivation to do something useful after work are even worse than usual. But maybe I’ll still restart doing the Reading Together at least, who knows…
I’m currently considering to start a new segment for the weekend, where I talk about the many series I’ve watched (Series Satunday), but that would not fit the bill of an easy weekly post – and I would probably run out of series and motivation quite soon – like I did with the WWW.
Which in turn I thought about trying to do bi-monthly or monthly, depending on how much I watched, as it is quite some work to put down all my thoughts.
I don’t know if anyone would be interested in „Found on the Internet“ post, where I talk about stuff I came across.
I’m not even sure I’d like doing that.
I probably would rather share it through Twitter and Facebook than blog about it.
I’d also like to continue introducing people to Webcomics I’ve read or the language stuff I started way back and I think that might be more interesting than the „random stuff from the Internet“-thing.
There is also a lot of stuff, I still want to talk about that I haven’t gotten around to write about. So it seems like a proper schedule for all the longer stuff is in order.

So, this is the plan

Every second Wednesday there will be a post:
One week a WWW, one week a Webcomic (Webcomic Wednesday, so to speak).
Starting: Next week with a WWW (not sure yet, if I give you the complete one or a split version, of what I currently have)
Every other Monday there will be a post about a Concert or Festival I’ve been at – the Music Monday, even if some will still be called In Concert/At the Festival.
This way I hopefully get on track with my logs about them and maybe even talk about a few interesting long players (again).
Every other Tuesday or Thursday there will be either a post about my travellings – the Travelling T-Day – that’ll cover random stuff from the On the Road category, as well as actual travel logs or a Translation T-Day, covering the Lost in Translation stuff, I still want to talk about.
Maybe I’ll really go for the Series Satunday as well, but I’ll see how the stuff above will turn out before I make a final decision here – though the LiT stuff would fit here as well.
There is also another idea for the weekend that I’ll present you on Sunday (there’ll also be another Your Picture – A Story over at DF.PP Entertainment by the way).
I really hope I can somehow pull this off. It’s so frustrating that I can’t manage to keep up a decent schedule, so I felt it was necessary to give myself a kick in the butt to change this.

What do you think?

Does any of this sound interesting/boring?
What would you like to see more of?
Let me know! 🙂

Happy New Year

I hope you all had a good start into the new year. 🙂
This year will be full of changes for me.
In March I will stop being a student (at least I hope so) and get a real contract with my company.
This’ll finally give me more time for some of my projects.
Amongst other things I would like to start reading more again. I miss it, but I was mostly too tired of looking at stuff to take out one of my many unread books.
I also want to write down some more of my stories. Proper fiction mostly, but I also want to finish Crossing Over and try out some new Crossovers.
And I think about refreshing my Russian and instrument skills.
Though I think, figuring out where I want to go from here will be the most difficult thing next year.
A few changes for this Blog will be made as well and I also still have things to write from last year.
Like the reviews for the Wave Gothik Treffen (WGT), Wacken and M’era Luna, as well as for the Die Ärzte concert and the HellNights I attended. And my report for my journey through Germany.
Apart from that I’ll try to get some kind of schedule for this Blog.
My idea so far is to post once every week. Each post will be for a certain general topic, like: Movies/Series; Books/Manga/Comics, Music/Concerts/Festivals and Thoughts. I’m not so sure about the actual order, though.
I already have drafts for the six posts from last year, several different series, some thoughts and one for the Books category, but they are mostly far from being finished.
Additionally to that new reviews will be added, as I will be attending the Metalfest Loreley again, but also the Out&Loud festival and the tickets for concerts of Van Canto and Schandmaul are already bought.
My journey this year might be a little shorter or even non-existent as a former fellow student and I are trying to figure out a trip to London.
And who knows what I will come up with throughout the year.
I also created a Tumblr site during the last hours of 2013: Random Poison
Not sure how and if I’ll use it, but at least I am able to follow some people more easily this way and am able to promote my post a bit more. 😉
Today I’ll leave you with a quite short post, as I don’t want to spoil too much of what will be written here.
I wish you all the best for this new year and hope you manage to do all the things you aspire to do.
