'Mel on reading' is a little feature I created as part of my Fairytale news. It's my way to show my thoughts on topics that go from pet peeves in reading to my favorite things in books.
As we speak, I have 18 concept posts on my blog and 12 on my Windows Live Writer program. The concept posts on my blog are good to go. The only thing I have to change is the title and I add a little text and catchwords to the ‘Search description’ box. I don't like to schedule, because I want to be in control and I like to pick my posts randomly.
The concept posts on Windows Live Writer are different. When I’m not satisfied with a post, I keep it and adjust it until I’m happy – then I send it as concept to my blog. This prevents me from having a chaos on my blog with half finished and good-to-go posts. Sometimes I only have a title and some random questions, just to make sure I don’t forget about my ideas and the point I want to make. This post was one of them. I named it ‘Fairytale News XX. concept posts’ and I had these questions with answers typed down:
-How many? (What is your ideal number of concept posts?) –> X and 8.
-When do you write them? –> Whenever I feel like it.-Where do you keep them? –> Blog and Windows Live Writer.
So, now on to you. How many concept posts do you have and is this your ideal number? How do you manage them?
