Serving Up a Fourth Year

The perfect food truck doesn’t exis–
Well, I’ll be damned.

Hard to believe, but this is Year Four of Iacon East. I started this blog back in July of 2015; where does the time go?

Supposedly, most blogs don’t last more than six months. That’s about the time when the novelty wears off, most people realize that this is actually a form of work, and simply quit. They either can’t find things to write about or they can’t keep things fresh. So there goes that blog, shoved off into a dusty corner of the internet, simply to be forgotten.

I’ve made an effort to avoid this trap.

Things have changed over the past year: I have scheduled, regular postings on certain days of the week. It makes planning things out a lot easier for me. Sure, I have a few days that are open, so I can make random posts, but the routine stuff? It makes things easier, much easier.

Technically, I had a routine on Blogger; at least once a week there was a post, even if it was simply a photograph. Not much of a routine, but one nonetheless.

I do miss the Friday Photoblog. I really ought to consider bringing it back. It was fun posting pictures of interesting things and places. Sadly, I’m not sure if it’s a good idea; I don’t travel like I did several years ago. Most of the photos came from BotCon and BotCon is no more. But I digress.

However, having a weekly routine for the blog has been helpful; I don’t have to scramble around at the last second, wondering what I should write. There’s also days that are open, so if I want to post something different–be it a rant, review, or something else entirely–I’m free to do exactly that. I have my routine with enough flexibility to keep it fresh. It works.

Of course, this may change as well. A year is a long time. But one thing will never change: there will be kitten videos. Because this is the internet, a series of tubes that functions because of cats. Just trust me on that one. 😉

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
