Hello, everyone! I’ll keep this post brief because A) I am tired and should go to bed soon, and B) there are only a few things I want to tell you today anyway! This is a housekeeping sort of post with some questions and thingies about the future of my blog…
SO. FIRST OF ALL. I need your input on my college posts so far! I waited until the first few weeks of the school year were over because I wanted to see how well both the blog and I adjusted, but now it’s time to ask you some questions!
- Am I posting too much/not enough about college?
- Am I posting too much/not enough about the rest of my life?
- Are there any college-related topics that you wish I would post about?
- Are there any life-in-general topics that you wish I would post about?
Also, I would like to post some of the essays I’ve written for various classes – which classes are you most interested in reading about? I mean… history? Writing? All of them? (You can find a list of my fall classes here.)
I wrote a bunch of posts over the weekend, but I haven’t scheduled them yet because… I want to know what YOU think! Like, I feel as if I haven’t talked about books that much lately, except occasionally in the form of top ten lists, BUT I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S YOU WANT TO READ ABOUT. Should I do more college posts? Posts about the photographs I’ve taken since I arrived? Posts about music? TELL ME AND I SHALL SCHEDULE IT ACCORDINGLY.
It would really help me if you left even a very brief comment with your thoughts, because I want to make my blog appealing to its readers! ALSO, I’M JUST A VERY INSECURE WRITER. I feel like college is a big change and an important step towards the rest of my life, buuuut I also don’t want to bore you with endless posts! I NEED TO FIGURE OUT WHAT SORT OF BALANCE IS BEST. I need as many people as possible to help me with that!
The second thing I want to say is… in just a few days, I’ll let you know whether or not collaborative reviews of Doctor Who series nine will be a THING on Musings From Neville’s Navel this fall! I’m not even sure if I can watch yet because… well, it’s a long story, but my brother uses a proxy server when we watch the episodes at home, but I guess Iowa (or just specifically my university? IDK?) has stricter laws about that, and I don’t want to get in trouble.
SO. If I cannot use a proxy, then I’ll wait until Thanksgiving break and binge-watch the episodes, and probably write mini reviews on my own. If I can use a proxy, however, then I’ll definitely do collab reviews with you guys! (Although they’ll probably be much, MUCH shorter than they were last fall because I don’t have as much free time now!) Also, if I can watch Doctor Who starting this month, then I will post a sign-up/schedule/thingy so you can choose which episode(s) you want to review!
(FYI, there seem to be a lot of two-part episodes this series – I think at least three? Last year there was only one, so finding a person who could review both wasn’t as much of a problem, but I just want to let you know – in case I can do the collab reviews – that I would prefer to have the same person review both parts with me. Because continuity and stuff like that.)
Well… that’s all I have for you today! NOW I SHOULD REALLY GET SOME SLEEP. EVEN THOUGH IT’S ONLY 9:30. BECAUSE I DIDN’T GO TO BED UNTIL 2:30 LAST NIGHT/THIS MORNING. (It’s a long story, but I guess we won a football game against Iowa State yesterday? And people were loudly celebrating even in the early hours of the morning? And they were possibly high? COLLEGE IS WILD.)
