Thoughts --- New Posting Schedule for Sharing!

2014 Update:
This is a good post to read, as it shows you the variety of things I post about.  I post by subject area or by topic and anywhere from 2 to 6 times a week, but not on specific days any more. See the links in my sidebar. Enjoy!

Thoughts --- New Posting Schedule for Sharing!

I am starting a new posting schedule.  For a year, I posted regularly at least 4 to 5 days a week.  I still will be posting 4 to 5 days a week, but I will be posting on certain topics, but not on set days. That works better for me!
Getting Up Close to My Quilting will be at least once a week and occasionally 2 to 3 times a week. I take photos of quilting designs everyday. Then I think I can't post it til the next week Monday, but then there is a cooler one... Well, not any more. When I quilt the quilts and take the photos, I am going to share them!


Hodgepodge Patchwork Tuesday will probably be around Tuesday.  I call it:  "Anything Quilting Post" - a tutorial, a share about a quilted item, and even some quilting challenges.  


I love posting Hodgepodge Patchwork Tuesday!


Wordless Wednesday will be around Wednesday and will of course be wordless.
Gabby and Toby
Since August, it has featured primarily my dog, Gabby and my Mom's dog, Toby as it was a way for me to share photos of them with my Mom, friends, and family.  That way they could all see sweet little Toby. Toby was attacked by two large dogs this summer and was in the hospital for five weeks. My husband and I are caring for him now and he has blended very well into our home. 
When I first started Wordless Wednesday posts it was a way of sharing a few more photos of quilting designs, a cool flower, or something that was visually pleasing to me.
Wordless Wednesday will be more quilting designs, flowers, and a few photos of my dogs, mixed in.


Thoughts Posts used to be called Thursday's Thoughts and the last time I posted an actual "Thoughts Post" was in October.  It is not that I don't have thoughts, I just seem to be sharing them in the other posts and didn't find a need to share an individual post just for thoughts.  So this will be an occasional post.
An example was the "I See Quilts Everywhere..." Look at all those colors.  Wouldn't they make a pretty quilt?
That is what started Lunch Looks Like a Quilt to Me Blog.


FAQ's Posts used to be on Friday's from April thru' August last year.  Again, I seem to be sharing the questions and answers in my other posts -- so no real need for an individual post for questions.  If you click here or on FAQ's Posts you can read some of the things I wrote about. It is a mixture of quilting business questions and personal questions.  Like do I cook? It was one of the questions answered in that post from May 2011. 
And these questions were answered in June: What do I do in my evenings?  and Why do I write a blog? 


Last fall, when I was at a quilting retreat, I posted several posts called: My Minutes for Me Adventures.  It was about all the quilting projects I was going to complete during the 4 day retreat. I posted about the progress on each one.  Here are a few of them.
I have been to two retreats, since then and just posted about the items under different titles.  I am going to another 4 day quilting retreat in the middle of April and I will again share my Adventures.


A Quilter with a Green Thumb are the posts I share about the plants and flowers in my home and my container garden.

I love when you share your posts on the Minutes for Me Linky Party!
First, I tried a weekly party and then a monthly party.  I may go back to the weekly party. How about just a weekly link up, but with no weekly features? I link up to many sewing and quilting linky parties, but they don't do any weekly features and that is perfectly fine. Any thoughts?  I love your input.


Are you doing May for Me Celebration with us?


In conclusion... I love sharing, but from now on I am going to share about all of these quilting topics, but not on specific days.  I enjoy blogging. Sometimes stuff in my life gets in the way of sharing a post at a certain time or day.  Now with my new posting schedule, I will share whenever I want to share with no time restraints.

That makes me smile.
Remember to take time to play - at least 5 minutes everyday!

I get lost with schedules - such a go with the flow person. And I really must admit that this month has not allowed ME time - well the clearing/cleaning out, but I'm not sharing that in photos!

I kind of like a schedule but it doesn't work so well. And I am the world's worst about linky parties. I'm always so short on time to take time. I have to find a better time to blog.

I woud never have been able to cope with pecific posts on specific days, I feel I'm doing well to remember what day it is, and to get a chance to sew or post!!! I love the trees in the top photo!

Oh gosh. I'm too much of a bubble head to be as organized as you describe. If I have something to say, I just blurt it out. I might explode otherwise, and then who's gonna clean up THAT mess?

I post every day, difficult sometimes but with a dog in the house it is a lot easier! But with the connection I made to your blog every post of you lights up as an example of real good machine quilting! Enjoy all you do, is my recommendation! Greetings
