Possible Posts

I haven't run out of things to say, (Just ask Mama Bear) but from time to time, I come up with ideas that would be too long for one post, and might make a series of posts. For example, when I was planning this year's curriculum, I didn't have time to blog, but thought I might blog later about some of the things we're using. Or this: Occasionally I've come up with shortcuts to keeping the house, dishes, laundry, and children clean. Some of them even work. I've thought of posting some of them here. What do you think? When I come up with these ideas, should I launch into a series? Put up a post or two and see if anyone's interested in hearing more? Post a list of series topics and ask what you'd like to hear about? Just post a snippet when the mood strikes? I'm actually asking for people's opinions before I make up my mind. How often does that happen?

I would be interested - my best friend has a 7 year old who is not quite autistic, but has a great deal of trouble with communication verbally. I read most everything you write (some I miss due to a hectic schedule). While I don't quite agree with everything - I enjoy reading it. Between us, my best friend and I, we are raising 10 children - so I'm always searching for ways to help us reach B. If you still read my blog - you've seen her there. Her new baby brother has Downs Syndrome.

We (best friend does not have internet) are interested in anything that helps us homeschool B. How to cope with her bad days. Keeping our sanity ... I'm fine with series.

Any of these seem like good options; let the feedback from readers prompt you which way to go from there. I tend to be more of a "when the mood strikes" person.

Then again, take my comments with a grain of salt, they're based only on how I might like to see the topics presented, nothing more. Balance what you think we'd like to read in what format against your need to write and how it feels natural for you to present things. If you want to launch into a full fledged article or series, by all means go for it. This is after all your blog.
