I have been putting a lot of thought into creating a more definite schedule for posts so you know what to expect and when. While I haven’t determined specific days/weeks for which type of posts, I have decided on themes for different days of the week. And I bet you could figure some of these out! So, here is what I have come up with:
Mondays: Anything goes! So this could be a behind the scenes at The Craft Penguin, something about me, inspiration for items, etc. Basically, whatever I feel like sharing with you. 😉
Tuesdays: By now you can probably guess this one. Yup! See, I knew you could guess- Penguin Luv Linkups! This will be every single week. If something comes up and I can’t post a new one, I will try to let you know ahead of time through social media. And since the linkups come with plenty of explanation and we’ve had 2 already (and getting ready for a new one tomorrow), I will spare you the details. 🙂
Wednesdays: DIY or WIP Wednesdays- This could be me giving a tutorial, patterns, anything for you to do yourself or it could be me sharing about what I am working on. And since you pay such great attention to detail, you’ll remember I did one of these last week!
Thursdays: Dare to guess? Hey, right again! Thursday Thoughts! This is basically where I share whatever is on my mind. Kinda like a brain dump. If I’m thinking about it, I am going to write it. If you want an example, check back to the one I did on September 3.
Fridays: Small Biz Spotlight or Friday Featured Auction. Believe it or not, this is the only theme I haven’t already done something for, so they will require a tad more explanation than the others.
Once a month I will have a Small Biz Spotlight, highlighting another small business. I am going to try to keep this one consistently on the 3rd Friday of the month. So, that means this Friday will be our first Small Biz Spotlight! I’m super excited about it! If you want to apply to be featured, click on the Small Biz Spotlight Application tab at the very top of the page and fill out the form. I already have October lined up, but yours could be after that!
Featured Friday Auction will basically be like it sounds- an auction. But the auction will only be for a single item and one day, so you will need to be paying attention if you want to be in on it. (If I ever do more than 1 item, I will do more than one post to keep it easy.) What will happen is I will post an item that I am going to auction off. I will include a Start Bid (SB), Bid Increments (BI), and Buy it Now (BIN) option. To bid on the auction, you will simply leave a comment on the post with your bid. Unless someone chooses to use the BIN option, the highest bidder will win! Simple as that. I will explain it with more specific details when the time comes. I will likely do one next Friday to get it going.
Saturdays & Sundays: I don’t expect to be posting on the weekends. But if I do, it will likely be that something has come up, or I just can’t wait until Monday to say something.
So, now you know what to expect just by what day it is! And if you look back at our past posts, they all fall under these themes based on the day! (Yes, I did that purposely.) Pretty cool, huh?
I’d love to hear what you think! And if you ever have ideas for anything you’d like to see me post about, let me know!
