I’m not entirely inspired today, but I would like to ask my 68+ readers/followers a question.
Normally, I make sure to post at least twice a week. I have my Featured Posts, in which I talk about Famous Sayings. And on Wednesdays (like today), I take part in Kristi J. Simpson’s Write Anything Wednesday.
Now, Here’s My Question
Readers, should I include a guaranteed third post a week?
The idea I have is to have a week-ending post that would take into account various current events. I would do up to 20 articles a week, while providing links to my sources. There would be:
- 10 items from around the world
- Five national articles
- A few local articles
- One weird news item
- A viewer’s choice article
For the last one, I would have to figure out an apparatus to collect that information. Either I would have to set up an email for that or utilize social media.
Why I’m Thinking of Doing This
I’m not a news network and there are plenty of news outlets out there. And there may be other blogs that do this type of thing. But I would be doing this mostly for me and any who’s interested. And if I get the hang of things, I can put my own spin on this type of post.
There are of course benefits for me if I do this. Not only would this keep me on task, but it would help me write more and get up my reading speed.
I think my readers could benefit, although I know many are well-read. For one thing, there could be an added benefit of getting more reader involvement for those who find it difficult to comment on others’ post.
What do you think? I would love to get some feedback on this.

I like the idea of wierd news items, but that’s just me. Do whatever makes YOU happy and feel good about your blog. Your readers will read no matter if you simply write zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
In my case, I would prefer more objective fact seeking, rather than opinion analysis.
I would definitely go the object fact route. Another question is which sources I would use. There are sources with conservative and liberal slants. I might put up a list later for people to peruse.
