New Sitzblog Publishing Schedule

Relax, Sitzman ABC’s publishing schedule will not be this complicated. (Image Credit)
OK, so this is how it’s (hopefully!) going to be. I noticed that I have a lot of ideas for this blog, but I never seem to have enough time to write all the posts I want to write. It seemed that I had two options:
1. Forget about the blog; do other things like play video games and run around outside in the grass with the cats.
2. Systematically dedicate more time to making this blog better, so that it gets more readers and eventually maybe even makes a bit of income through Google ads and/or donations.
I’ve decided on #2 for now, at least (the cats can come inside and find me if they want to play). I said “dedicate more time” to this blog, but that’s an abstract concept. So, I decided I needed a fixed blogging schedule in order to push and motivate me. I decided on three posts a week:
Monday: Let’s call this “Mistake Monday,” which I occasionally did in the past. On Mondays, I’ll write about a Common Error or some other “difficult” language area. 
Wednesday: I’ll call this “Word Wednesday.” I’ll write a False Friend post, or something else related to vocabulary (like loanwords, for example).
Friday: This will be “Fun Friday.” I’ll write about entertaining and/or interesting websites, apps, blogs, games, or other things that will hopefully appeal to many readers. Yes, I realize that even if I try to make something “fun,” it will be difficult to get people to read on Fridays, but they’ll have the whole weekend to read it!
Most posts will be related to English, but I may occasionally talk about other languages. I’ll also occasionally write extra posts on other days if something interesting comes up.
So, now I’d like to ask you to do three things:
1. Try to help by reading and even contributing to this blog, if possible. You can always leave a comment or send me an email if you have a question you’d like me to address, or if you have any suggestions for False Friends or Common Errors.
2. Help by mentioning the blog to people you know who might be learning foreign languages –especially English learners, but everyone is welcome!
3. Consider contributing a “guest” blog post of your own (email me if you have an idea, and I’d be happy to feature your language-related blog post and give you the credit). If you aren’t able to contribute that way but still want to help, consider donating to Sitzman ABC (there’s a yellow button in the right column that says “Donate”). You can easily donate any amount through PayPal, and your contribution can help keep the machines running at the Sitzman ABC factory!
Hopefully this will be a big step in the right direction for this blog, but of course I won’t be able to do it without my readers. So as usual, I want to say a big THANKS to all of you for reading the blog. You are literally the reason I do this! Have a great week!
