I know it’s the end of August and nobody is paying attention to the Internet because we all just want to soak up the last bits of summer. However, if you have been paying attention, you may have noticed that things have been a little quiet on IAYB lately. Like the rest of you, I’ve been soaking up the last bits of summer.
I’ve also been thinking about some changes I’m going to make to the blog. I’ve been thinking of ways to sustain my energy for writing, and the time I devote to freelance/other projects.
For the past two years, I’ve been posting Monday to Friday, during daytime hours. This has been a good practice, and works while I freelance, but it takes a lot of energy and I have to produce posts quickly.
It’s time for a new strategy.
Instead of weekday posts, I’m going to publish one long-ish “op-ed”column style piece, which will hopefully read more like a magazine or newspaper column. I’ll continue to post little newsy blips throughout the week, when and if something good comes my way. I’ll still monitor the media for yoga news, interview good peeps and share cat yoga videos (because we all love them). But the blog will be anchored in this one weekly post, which will be posted every Monday morning.
For email subscribers: as of September 2, the weekly email will be sent out on Monday morning instead of Friday afternoon, with one “feature” post, and links to things from the previous week. This will be the start of your week and will give me the space to work and write over the weekend.
As I think about what I want to do with IAYB, it feels like the right time to ask what YOU want to see here. What do you love about IAYB, what keeps you coming back, what do you want to see more of?
So check out this survey and let me know what you think about IAYB!
