So my blog looks different. Don't worry, it isn't going to stay like this. I'm slowly going to tweak it until it looks pretty. Well, prettier.

Aside from the obvious layout changes there will be some other changes to my blog. First I am going to start having images with most of my posts. But that is still sort of layout. I am going to start following a blog schedule. This will require me to post and will give my creative juices a "go point".

Week Wrap-Up (Personal/about me stuff)
Out and About Chicago (Copied after Travis Erwin's My Town Mondays)
Wednesday: Writing Tips & Lessons Learned (Something in the writing craft I wish to discuss)
Writing Updates (How much writing I have done in the past week)

Random postings, or nothingness, will occupy the other days.

Also, talking about Travis Erwin--his family recently suffered a terrible loss a few days ago when their house burnt down. While I only know him through following each other's blogs, he seems like a really great person. He and his wife have two kids and two dogs. Some other bloggers have started a site where you can help him out in this just-after-the-holidays-season, if you are interested (yes, his kids lost all their presents from Santa). My heart goes out to his family.

6 tidbits:

Just stopping by to say Hello since you left a comment on my blog. I love the title of your blog. I'll have to stop by and read more. I'm supposed to be editing my novel right now. :)

Oh hey, thanks so much for the welcome! Good luck with your novel. =) I might just have to keep this thing followed.

@Writer and @Lyrist-Thanks for popping by! :)

Cavan said...

I think I need to start something like this. My blogging consistency is....well, crap.

Travis Erwin said...

Thanks Lauren. This past week has been an ordeal but thanks to my many wonderful friends such as yourself it gets better everyday.

@Cavan--I think that the schedule will be great once I have internet connection, but I am in Mexico for a friend's wedding so it didn't pan out yet.

@travis-thanks for making it to my blog during all this turmoil in your life. I told my church's prayer circle about you, I hope you don't mind. They are all praying for you and your family.
