Fri Dad is back after an unannounced weekend off. No worries, simply a change in schedule forced me to alter plans.
I normally take the time to post out parent related discussions. I've always felt that as a parenting blog, I should never stray too far from the subject. I'm well aware Laura can post non parent related topics, but I felt obligated to be stringent, maybe it's the way I was raised.
However, I'm writing today to propose a potential make over of the Fri Dad post.
I've been in thought about Fri Dad for the past few days thinking about how tough it is for me to stick to topics and experiences. What I have noticed is that I enjoy chipping in with bits and bobs that can sometimes go on a tangent.
This gave me a bit of an idea of how to deal with this. I propose a change in format where I essentially break down my post in to 4 to 6 subjects. The subjects can include, personal updates, good ideas, funny incidents and even topical subjects (whatever you read about). Think of it as a guest column just like the Sun, but it's no one famous or controversial, it's just me.
This way I can cut out any guff (though as a writer, a simple edit would make more sense) and cater for as much as I can considering that it's a weekly post.
So now I open it up to you. What do you think? Is Fri Dad in need of a makeover or since it ain't broke, don't fix it?
I've had little chance to interact with you all after discovering when I go missing I'm asked after.
You can simply contact me via Twitter on your opinions...or even if you want to chat with me, I'm @SJCastle_. I look forward to hearing from you and I promise to try my best to give your blogs a look in return.
That's it for Fri Dad, the verdict will be made next week. Have a great weekend.
