What are some of your favorite columns in your favorite blogs?
I love when blogs or youtube channels have regular or semi regular series. I love to see what Chloe is finding in her $25 thrift challenge, or find some weekend reads from Fairdare.
With my own blog, I love the idea of having some of the same kinds of posts each week, month or year. In 2016, I started looking back and seeing what of these posts I used regularly and making a list. This is for my own memory, mostly, but you may want to take a look back, too!
Month in Review - A review of each month and my favorite instagrams for that month.
Monthly Plant Update - A review of all the plants I've observed for each month.
On My Mind On Friday Morning - A few things I've noticed around the internet, and life, recorded on Friday morning.
Something New - Something new I've learned or done.
Off Season - Notes on places I've seen, been, or explored and why I like them better in the off season.
Book Reviews - What I've been reading, showcased on quilts.
Art and Nature... - Art and nature go together. I like to write about it here.
Zoo at Home, Zoo Abroad - We love to visit animals, zoos, aquariums, etc... when we can.
Shelfie - Just pics of my home.
Bullet Journal - I've been keeping a BuJo for several years now, and I like to check in about once a month.
Mad Cat Capsule - In 2017, I started keeping a capsule wardrobe, follow my progress here. (added this year)
Zero Waste - 2017 also marked the start of my zero waste, plastic free journey. I post thoughts, ideas, recipes, and goals.
Something Nice - Don't you love it when nice stuff happens?
There have been a few categories that I started posting this year:
Habit Shift - Here I talk about the habits I love and those I want to make.
.Tattoo Story - To remember my tattoos and why I got them, I record it here.
What I Eat in a Day - I love to eat, love to know what people are eating, love to share!
Recipes - I want to include more recipes, specifically zero waste recipes, here.
Definitions - Some terms that I and other bloggers use might be new to you. Here’s where you can learn more.
Youtube - I really want to try and incorporate videos into my blogging.
And there are some that I did post in during the year, but have fallen by the wayside. Mostly these have to do with sewing and quilting.
New Block - I try to learn new blocks each month and share them.
Finishes - This column doesn't get much love, but I'm always hoping to have a finish each month.
WIP / Wrinkly Old WIPs - WIPs are for photos of what I'm working on, with few words. Wrinkly Old WIPs is for rekindling interest in old projects.
I would love to have one of each of these posts every month and in some columns cases, more than once a month. I really enjoy looking back to see how the posts in my blog have grown. Does anyone out there have a favorite column at Mad Cat Quilts? What would you like to see more of?
I rarely use tags in my post, but I’m thinking of trying it. Please let me know any advice you might have as to the benefits of tags! Leave your comments below!
