Some Announcements

Hi, everyone,

Today, for the first time in about two months, we have an announcements post! There are two pretty substantial updates to the blog, and I wanted to share them with you all.

First off, I’ve added an email subscription to my blog! At the end of every post now, right before the buttons that allow you to like or comment, there’s a line of text that reads “click here to get alerts when I post!” If you click on that link you’ll be taken to another page that’ll ask you to enter your email address. Once you enter whichever email address you'd prefer to get alerts on, you’ll get an email update whenever I post new content.

The second announcement is a bit of a sad one for me (although some of you may find it something of a relief). For the past few months I’ve been posting to this blog twice a week, once on Tuesday and once on Friday. However, during that time I’ve noticed that I haven’t been able to do as much of my other writing. The amount of thought and time focused into this blog has left me with less of a chance to work on my short stories or slam poetry. Because of this, I’ve decided to post less frequently moving forward. From now on I’ll be posting to this blog once a week, on either Thursday of Friday between 7 and 8 PM. I’ll still be posting this Friday, but after that I’ll switch over to my new once-a-week schedule.

That being said, I think the blog and my website are both in a good place right now.  I’m happy with the posts I’ve been publishing, both in terms of quality and subject matter. I’m also excited to spend some more time working on my other writing, and I'm hoping to finish a short story and a slam poem in the next few weeks. If you have any suggestions or ideas on how to improve the blog or the website don’t hesitate to let me know, either in the comments or via email.

With excitement and optimism,

Alex
