DISCUSSION: Changes I’ve Made/Making

Behind the scenes, I have been busily organising and changing certain things about the blog. I decided to do this after attending a blog talk that Carly Bennett from Writing from the Tub did at my local library when I came to the realisation that, really, I didn’t need to be doing as much as I did. 
I used to post everyday and it started to become strenuous. So I’ve now decided to create a schedule and at the moment it looks like this:
Monday- Review
Wednesday- Discussion
Friday- Review/Discussion/Interview
Saturday- Embracing My Inner Geek (This might not be posted every week but I will be posting it on a Saturday from now on).
Sunday- Letterbox Love
This is subject to change and there will be times when I may post more or less, especially with some monthly features that change every month. 
I’ve also decided not to Tweet as much because I really had become addicted and it also means that I can spend more time reading than on my phone! Although I still go on Twitter, I’m not as active and I’m finding that I’m not losing pageviews either, which I was a little worried about.
I’ve started labelling my posts which is something that I tried to do before but forgot about and it’s much easier to now find posts.

I’m sure there are a lot more changes that I’m in the process of making but I really can’t think at the moment! If there’s anything that you’d like to see on Queen of Contemporary then I’d love it if you could comment below or you could send me an email, which you can find on the contact page.

    Hi,
    I have also been making some changes and i’ve been trying to manage my blog a bit differently, simpler and more efficiently lately. Looking forward to seeing your great posts 😀

    Aw I’m so glad some of the info was useful! I love your blog and think these changes will leave you more time to read, which we all know is the priority 🙂 x

    Sometimes, as they say, less is more. If you are constantly thinking about the next blog post, it could get a little overwhelming. Blogging is something that can be taken seriously, and I mean the best blogs have some forward thinking, but if you’re stressing out or not having fun with blogging anymore, that’s not the original point of it. Blogging is a hobby – not a job.
    I’ll be looking forward to these posts, I’ll always be reading if you post once a week or every day.

    These changes sound good to me! I’ve started having more of a routine to my blog as well so I’m never panicking about what I have to post on a certain day. I think sometimes we forget to think of ourselves when blogging! I hope you enjoy spending some more time reading and good luck with cutting down on Twitter (I’m the same – always looking at my ipod every 5 seconds when I could be reading!).

    What an intelligent idea! I’m all over the place with reviews, and posting so many times a week. Maybe I’ll sort out a timetable, too. Can’t wait to read some more of your posts! 😀

    Looks good! Blogging’s definitely more fun when you’re not forcing yourself to post every day. Also, good luck trying not to be as addicted to twitter! We’ll still carry on chatting, right?

    Great thinking, Lucy 🙂 There’s nothing worse than stressing yourself out and losing the love of blogging. Either way, we’ll all still be here to read your posts no matter how many or few there are!

    It’s really good to be organised and find what works for you. I pos reviews Mon-Wed-Fri and STS on Sundays, sometimes if I am super busy one week, I will post only 2 reviews instead, so it’s good to be flexible 🙂
