Thoughts: Adding more structure to the blog

Waffle-150x142Happy weekend all! This is really me trying to verbalise an idea, so bare with me, and at the end I’d love to hear your thoughts, as without you, my dear readers, there’d be no point in me being here. Anyway, inspired by Karen from Lovely Girlie Bits saying she needed to plan some posts, I got thinking about how I could add more structure to the blog by planning out and structuring my posts more. That’s why I was thinking of something along the lines of the following:

  • Manicure Monday: An excuse to work through the 95 and counting bottles of nail polish I own, showcasing 1 a week.
  • Tried Tuesday: I’m pretty sure we have drawerfuls of products we’ve half forgotten about. That’s why on Tuesdays I want to pull something out, try it, and hopefully rediscover a love for it.
  • Waffle Wednesday: A chance for me to rant on about something. A news piece, something I’ve seen, or any random thing that’s caught my eye.
  • Tested Thursday: A bit more serious than Tried Tuesday. On Thursdays I’d see if a product actually lives up to its claims. I’d put it to the test.
  • Face Friday: A reason to appear on my own blog more often, and hopefully I’ll be able to get 1 face a week that I’d actually be happy to display. Failing that you’d end up with a picture of me with a brown bag on my head.
  • Something Else Saturday: Not quite waffling about anything, this is most likely going to be about a tv show, film, book, piece of music, piece of cake, or something else that I want to showcase.
  • Day Off Sunday: Nothing for you today. What do you think I am? A blog-posting robot? I need a day off once a week, okay!

I’ll also be doing additional posts on things that I feel can’t wait for the right day, or on Blog Challenges such as the Best of Beauty.

Now, as I said, this is more my thoughts at the moment, but I’d love to hear what you have to say. What do you think of the idea? Are there any particular topics you’d change? Please do speak up and let me know in the comments.


No brain cells were irreparably damaged from thinking up this post, but it was a close call

UPDATE: Judging by the positive comments, I’ll trial my idea for a couple of weeks and see if it works out for me. Watch this space.

  • I love the idea of having specific days for specific themes, especially Mani Monday! I tried it for a little while with my Saturday Night Song/Thursday Diary/Wednesday Baby things but i kept forgetting to blog and then I’d get an idea that I wanted to post about NOW and it wouldn’t be the “right” day so I just let the whole lot go to pot and waffle away now when I get the urge or the time! I’m all about the lists and structure, just wish I could keep it up. If you can do it without putting pressure on yourself I say go for it! Love the Waffle Wednesday idea :)

    • One thing I don’t want to lose is the spontaneity but at the same time, to blog every day I want to have some idea of what to have ready for each day, then I can always add extra posts as I feel like it :-)

  • Great idea, I could do with a bit more structure myself!

    • I’m probably going to trial it for a couple of weeks to see how it goes! It just means I know what has to be done each week.

  • Love this idea! Looking forward to checking in now and having plenty of reading material :) I really need to get some structure going for my own blog!

Go on, talk to me. I don't bite!
