Planning and Consistency

Do you like consistency?  I like consistency.  No, not as in texture, although that's a good thing too.  I mean a pattern, a regular schedule, something predictable.  Sometimes it's fun to stray from the pattern, but it's comfortable to keep to it.

I've been thinking about this for a little while, and I want to establish a pattern of sorts in my posts.  I like alliteration too, and I like sharing in others' good ideas, so this won't be entirely original, but I'm going to be posting on a (fairly) specific topic each day of the week.  Several of these correspond to themed link-ups that I like joining, but I won't do that every day.
Here's the plan:

Marriage Mondays (with The Alabaster Jar, and others)--posts having to do with my husband, our relationship, and/or my role as a wife

Titus 2 Tuesdays (with Far Above Rubies, Time-Warp Wife, and others)--posts having to do with Godly womanhood
Into the Word Wednesdays (with Upward Not Inward, and others)--posts having to do with Scripture and our walk with Christ
Thankful Thursdays (with black tag diaries and others)--posts having to do with how God is awesome, and how thankful I am for who he is and what he does
Foodie Fridays--posts having to do with my experimenting and eating

I recently posted a poll on my Facebook page asking for feedback on what kind of posts my readers are interested in.  The most people asked that I write about marriage and homemaking.  Other topics--like Godly womanhood, cooking, and frugal living--fall under those.  I'll try to focus on those topics in particular, especially since they're the ones I have the most knowledge about.  If you haven't taken the poll yet, hop over to my Facebook page and do so, and click "Like" while you're there!

Finally, I'm excited to announce that I will be participating in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge this year!  I heard about this massive blogging party a few months ago, and it's been simmering in the back of my mind a bit since then.  The premise is simple: every day in April, except Sundays, your blogging topic must start with a letter of the alphabet--A on April 1st, B on the 2nd, and so on.  Hundreds of bloggers participate in this, so I'm excited to get to know a lot of other people!  I don't intend that this will interfere with my weekly topic schedule.  In fact, I'm looking forward to finding topics that coincide with both things.  These next two months will be brainstorming and planning for that!

If you'd like to participate in the A to Z Challenge, just read all the instructions, follow the hosts' blogs, and sign up!

What kind of posts would you like to see the most on Living in the Light?  I want to write what YOU want to read, so talk to me!

  1. My life tends to be chaos, but I do like consistency in my blogging. Your plan sounds good.

    You'll enjoy participating in the A to Z Challenge. This will be my third year and first as a co-host.


I love reading your thoughts and opinions!
