Hi everyone. I’ve been doing some thinking about what I want to blog about next year. This year, I’ve posted a lot about our reading selections, and also whatever grabbed my attention or pissed me off, mostly under the category of religious rants. Next year, I want to be more focused, so here’s what I’m planning:
1) I’ll continue to write about our monthly reading selections and to point out books that might be interesting to skepchicks. I want to write more in-depth book reviews, especially in those cases where I’m not able to interview the author.
2) I’m going to post periodic accounts of my adventures writing a memoir about my transition from born-again Christian to atheist. I’ve been working on this book between everything else this year, and next year I want to give it more focused attention. I may post some short excerpts from the work-in-progress. These posts will focus on the experiences of “How I became a Skepchick.”
That’s it. I’m going to try not to let the internet suck up so much of my time in 2008. I have my doubts as to whether I’ll be successful, but I’m going to try to check my email only once or twice a day, and read blogs only once a day. I want to be less of a scatter brain next year, and have more cohesive chunks of time to spend on my writing.
What this means is that I’ll probably be writing less frequent, but more substantial posts.
That’s what I’d like to write, but I’m interested in what you would prefer to read. No promises, but I would like your input. I made a little poll to make it quick to respond. If you want to give more detailed input, use the comments.
P.S. For those who don’t pay attention to the author line, this is Donna (writerdd) speaking, not Rebecca. And this poll only applies to what I will write, not what the other contributors to Skepchick will write.
