This post officially marks the beginning of my sixth year of blogging. Two days ago (11 Jan 2016) was the fifth anniversary of the publication of my very first post and, thereby, the launching of the blog. Over the years I've posted ninety-seven Confessions, twenty Nu-Views, fifteen Retro-Views, and nearly one hundred fifty (!) reviews of new episodes, DVDs, and audio adventures (with a couple of books thrown in for good measure). I've also written a smattering of miscellaneous posts describing my experiences at conventions and such.
For the past five years, I have posted at least once a week, every Wednesday and then some. I've made something like three hundred entries on Confessions of a Neowhovian, and I don't have any plans to stop. However, as I stated at the beginning of my not-tongue-in-cheek-enough April Fool's post last year, that has become wearing. Unless I'm writing a review or a Nu-View, the seeds that turn into posts are ever harder to come by.
In order not to burn myself out completely, then, I've decided to make some changes to my blogging practices that I hope will keep both me and you, my readers, engaged. Specifically, I'm going to change the frequency of my posts to allow myself more time both to devise interesting topics and to focus on my other (fiction) writing projects.
The new structure I have in mind involves a semi-monthly posting schedule. Now, instead of every Wednesday, there will be new material on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month. On fourth Wednesdays there will be a review of an audio adventure; second Wednesdays will have a Confession or other category post. Obviously, exceptions will crop up. For example, February will also include the usual spate of Gallifrey One notes. I'll also do weekly episode reviews whenever Series Ten finally goes out (which signs currently suggest will be 2017).
