Another month has flown by. Well, at least for me. This month, my blog posts slowed down a little because I started another job, which requires me to travel 4 hours in total each day. It may not make sense why I would take such a job that consumes basically my entire day and is 5 days a week, but it’s a temporary job that will last until October. And the assignment is ideal, which has always been a struggle for me when it comes to finding work.
So with that said, that is why my posts have been far and few in the last 2 weeks. I will make it my plan to post at least 2x a week for the summer, possibly posting on Mondays and Saturdays.
Another thing that did not come to pass this month was releasing my poetry book. On my April monthly update, I announced that I would be releasing a poetry book for sale in May. Getting a little ahead of myself, I did not anticipate the time I would need to get proofs, get them on selling platforms, and even develop a marketing plan. So upon realizing that, I knew I would need more time before actually posting them for sale. I now plan to release the book sometime in the summer.
At this point, I am sort of at a crossroads on where I want to go or how I want to market this poetry book. I definitely will create the books, but I’m also thinking about sharing some of the poetry on my blog. There are 7 of them that have been released before which I revised that I will most likely share, but I was thinking about releasing excerpts or portions of my favorite poems (as quotes) on my blog. Would that be a good idea?
