Amy has given me the keys to her blog while she takes her little hiatus. I thought I should start out with a list of what kinds of things (good and bad) you are likely to see from me over the next few weeks.
Most of my posts will be about books that Amy is not likely to read any time soon. While a large part of what I read comes from Amy's recommendations, I also love a couple of genres that Amy is less interested in, specifically science fiction/fantasy and war history. Branching out!
Don't expect a lot of in depth analysis. I read most of these books some time ago and might not remember much more than that I liked them.
It sounds like a lot of work to get relevant images to accompany posts. I don't like a lot of work. You'll be lucky to get a six month old picture of me in a lawn chair with a nerdy shirt.
I should let you know that I'm more stream of consciousness than Amy with less patience for proofreading. So I mite even have sum more grammar errors then her.
I'm planning to post some original poetry written specifically for this blog. We're talking World Premier! It might not be much more than a Haiku, but you'll want to stay tuned for that.
Amy is very structured and consistent. I am not so much. The spacing of my posts will likely be less predictable, even if I keep posting the entire time Amy is planning to be gone, which is not a sure thing.
I literally haven't checked my email since July, and I make no promises to respond to blog comments.
With all that said, I think this is going to be a fun exercise for everyone. At the very least, we will all come out of this with more appreciation for the work Amy puts into having thoughtful, meaningful articles.
We'll talk soon.
