Typical Publishing Schedule
For many years I thought of this blog as a weekly magazine containing regular articles and features. By the end of the week, the magazine is complete, thus the next edition starts building on Monday. By the end of May 2015, I wanted more time to visit other blogs, and the best way to do it was eliminate two regular posts (marked by the strike-through).
Monday – Monday Morning Entertainment – Light, short posts recapping the weekend, a look at the week ahead, and a video to start the week with a chuckle. (256 posts are in the archives)
Monday/Tuesday – Open topic/feature
Wednesday – On Satire Bits – A mid-week dose of satirical headlines for some laughs. (134 posts in the archives)
Wednesday/Thursday – Open topic/feature/Musical Act
Friday – Opinions in the Shorts – Short commentaries about politics and other topics, satirical headlines, a list of interesting reads, announcements, and music to send readers into the weekend.
- Explore Series – A short post featuring a person, place, or thing, which includes a featured video.
- Saturday Morning Cartoons – Features a cartoon character from the Golden Age of Cartoons because that’s what I saw in my youth.
Special Musicals – A musical featuring music around a theme. Once a musical starts, acts typically occur every two weeks. I announce the act’s theme in Opinions in the Shorts (Friday), and normal curtain time for the actual act is Wednesday, 9:30 pm (Eastern US).
I’m in the Eastern Time Zone (USA). Because of the global nature of blogs, new posts typically appear at 9:30 pm/21:30 (Eastern US) the night before the date listed below. For example, Opinions in the Shorts publishes at 9:30 pm (Eastern) Thursday night, but I consider it a Friday post. Saturday Morning Cartoons and Explore are exceptions with normal publishing between midnight and 2 AM (Eastern US) so other parts of the world can have it for their Saturday.
