So I just realized it’s almost halfway through May, which means I leave for Ireland in… two weeks? Three weeks? Yeah, something like that. I don’t know exactly. I’m bad at math. Anyway, my point is that it’s probably time to begin thinking about my posting schedule over the summer.
I’d really like to do my whole post-every-day-in-June-for-Pride-month thing that I’ve done the past two years. I have a bunch of ideas – book reviews, lists of one kind or another, personal posts, et cetera – but I want your input on this. Almost all of it is stuff that’s been floating around in my thoughts for a while now, so it wouldn’t be hard to write up a ton of posts for scheduling in advance. (There’s no way I would try to wing it and somehow find time to sit down and write a post each day while I’m abroad.)
I also want to make sure I write about Ireland while I’m there. I head home on July 15th (or thereabouts, can’t remember exactly when my flight is), so I’d have time after Pride month to cram in a bunch of posts. I’m hoping to keep a journal (either on paper or in a Word doc) during my time there, so it should be fairly easy to recall stuff that went on early in the trip.
Or I could combine the two by posting a lot of GAY STUFF as well as thoughts about my study abroad experience.
Or I could go back to my original idea but add in a bunch of posts about specifically Irish gay stuff??? OH MAN I COULD TALK ABOUT MY GAY DAD OSCAR WILDE. Or Dublin Pride, which I plan to go to if at all possible.
People seem to have enjoyed my month-of-Pride-posts thing in the past, but I know a bunch of you have also expressed interest in and excitement for posts about Ireland. I’m not sure which one to prioritize – or rather, how much of each one to prioritize – and I need you to help me choose. I write what I like, but I want to make sure you like it too!
Let me know in the comments below! Thank you!
