With the return of the NFL season I’ve been reading Peter King’s MMQB articles and I admire the amount of insight, analysis and opinions shared in a single monolithic post. Patrick Klepek’s Worth Playing posts are of a similar nature but I don’t read them at all.
And that’s my conundrum.
I wonder what’s more appealing for whomever stumbles across these posts. Would they be better served with giant posts or will they be better of scrolling through whatever catch of the day I manage to jot down?
My Sunday Checkpoint pieces aren’t necessarily the same as MMQB or Worth Playing because those posts are about sharing whatever is occupying my thoughts over the past week or weekend.
If I were to change my posting regiment, I was thinking about cutting Mondays out and just leave:
- Tuesdays – Because news tend to spill out on this day.
- Wednesdays – Dedicated for whatever review or impressions piece I have cooking
- Thursdays – For whatever else happened throughout the week
- Sundays – Checkpoints.
The aim of eliminating Mondays is to give me a day or so to digest and develop better posts. Hell, I may even eliminate Thursdays and just capture whatever I find interesting into a Tuesday post. I’m trying to move away from just posting things that would be perfectly fine on Twitter or a Tumblr page.
Of course I can post whatever I want whenever I want but I like to formulate some kind of schedule to keep some order. I doubt I’ll receive any timely feedback for any of this but that’s alright. I just wanted to paint a word picture for myself.
