Controlling A Hectic Schedule
As the offseason quickly approaches and the IndyCar season is slowing down, I’m finding my schedule becoming more hectic these days – now that I’ve actually been back in the real world of working adults for almost a month now. It is Thursday night about 11:15 as I have just now found a chance to sit down and type something. There was no new article this morning, and after an extremely busy day today I haven’t had time to think about what to write for tomorrow.
No, I’m not quitting the blog. But now that I am working longer hours and we are entering a time of the year that racing news is not at the forefront of everyone’s mind – I think it is a good time to set up an offseason schedule. Even though there is still one race left, it really seems as if we entered the offseason a few weeks ago since there has only been one race over the past five weekends.
With that being said, for the foreseeable future – that is to say until next spring; I think it is fair to me and the regular readers of this site to set a semi-regular schedule for articles to appear here. I feel confident in committing to three articles a week over the offseason. Monday, Wednesday and Friday will probably work best. Even in the heart of the season, the weekends get one third of the traffic that weekdays do. Mon-Wed-Fri seems to make the most sense. Everyone will know when to expect an article and when not to. Next weekend will be the exception, as there is the little matter of the championship being decided next Saturday. But beginning the week of Oct 12 – I plan to cut back to three articles a week
I really enjoy doing this blog, writing the articles and interacting with readers who e-mail me regularly. I want to continue throughout the coming winter and jump back in full-speed next spring, if possible. But the demands of my job are stacking up and I have many duties at home that occupy my time. I don’t want to throw stuff up there (like this) just to throw stuff up there when I haven’t had the time to put thought into it.
Please give me your feedback if you think three times a week is enough, too little or too much. I just think it’s fair to set out a schedule rather than post whenever I feel like it. I haven’t lost interest, only time – and I’m trying to do what’s right for everyone. Let me hear from you and as always – thanks for reading.
