Things Coming Up On the Couch!

I’m working hard on the ProBlogger challenge. Next week I begin the challenge again with movie bloggers. I’ll fill you in on that next week. Right now, I’m loving all the new Blogs I’ve found at SITS. So much so, that it’s even given me an idea for a new feature for the couch! Today’s challenge talks about editorial content and setting up the ideas for your posts in advance.

I’ve tried some regular features here in the past. 365 Seinfeld didn’t go over so well, but every Tuesday I still do Song of the Week. It’s all trial and error right? Well, I’ve been thinking of a couple of new features.

As previously mentioned, I’ve found so many great blogs in the last few weeks that I thought a new feature could be “Sunday Chatting with A Blogger.” My mission with this blog from the beginning has been to turn you on to great things, blogs included. I want to give it a bit more of a personal touch though and instead of links, (which are awesome, don’t get me wrong) an actual conversation with the blog author I’m highlighting. I was thinking this would be a nice laid-back Sunday feature.

I’m also considering a Saturday Skype Roundup. I’m considering coming to you via video each Saturday, directly from my couch! I can talk about recent events in the entertainment world and maybe vent a little! This of course requires me learn how to record, edit and post with Skype. Since my technical abilities sort of suck, this one may take me awhile!

So what do you think? Do these new features sound interesting? Do you think they enhance my niche? I’d love your feedback. Happy Friday by the way!

Colleen,
I'm visiting from SITS 31DBBB. I want you to know I think it's fabulous that you are constantly reinventing your blog. It's a fantastic way to keep the readers coming. I'm a new fan

Stopping by from 31DBBB- I love the idea of an "interview" with fellow bloggers! Very homey and chatty. Personal. Love it.

Hey! I'm here from 31DBBB too. I love your "chatting with a blogger" idea! I don't think I would have the time or patience to try adding Skype - more power to ya! You go girl! (ok - maybe I need to cut down on sugar....)

Both ideas are fantastic -- I like the idea that we'll see you actually on your couch! It'll make the whole blog feel more intimate.

Hi! I saw your comment on BF, SITS and came by to read your post....my first visit here. :> I have limited experience with Skype, but I'm sure you could figure it out.....blogging has led me to learning to do all kinds of things that I never thought I would know how to do! :> And interviewing other bloggers sounds like a fantastic addition to your blog.......I know its something I do on my couch. lol I'm glad I stopped by! :>
