It's not change that troubles me so much as uncertainty. I like to have a plan. I'm open to changing the plan but I still feel better if I've got one. I know enough about life to realize that an openness to possibilities can lead one in interesting directions.
Such was the case for The Armchair Squid in Year 6. Last August, I expected to carry on more or less as I had before: two monthly bloghops - one for books, one for movies; a weekly family adventures post on Sundays; finish up Star Trek's original series on Wednesdays, then move on to other things and book reviews as appropriate. The bloghops are doing well but everything else went out the window over time, though for welcome reasons. Fortunately, I have friends with good ideas. Once Maurice Mitchell hinted that he'd join me for an exploration of Trek's animated series, I jumped at the chance. A few months later, Andrew Leon suggested a similar project for Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Those two adventures took precedent over previous plans. So it goes.
Now, as Year 7 gets underway, I have a plan for The Squid going forward. But as always, I am open to changing the plan. I hope you'll join me.
here, sign up here and post your review on Friday, September 11th.
here and post this Friday.
All other Fridays will be devoted to generic Family Adventures post. As in the past, travel, movies and food are likely to dominate.
That's the basic plan. Miscellaneous posts for bloghop signups and book reviews will crop up from time to time as well. I'll still touch on music when appropriate.
I am continually encouraged and inspired by the many friends I have made in the blogosphere. I am eternally grateful to those of you who take the time to read and comment upon my humble posts. I look forward to joining all of you for further adventures in Year 7 of The Squid.
