Fall Housekeeping

I’ve been trying to write (i.e., blog) every day, but since the fall tv season has begun, I’ve been spending all my time at SciFi Chick(s).  (And I’m still behind!)  More importantly, I’ve been trying to read more blogs, especially those dedicated to writing.

Along the way, I’m trying to clean up both here and at SciFi Chick(s).  (This being a continuation of the Overholt Overhaul.)  I’m sorting through my categories and tags (now that I kind of understand how tags work), weeding out the duplicates and developing some consistency.  At first it was crazy daunting, but I’ve come up with a manageable approach by doing a little bit each day.

I’ve also updated my links, taking out the dead links and adding some new ones that I really like, including a whole section on writing.

The one new non-writing blog is one I found yesterday called Fresh from the… (oven and television).  I thought about putting it  under “Awesome Stuff,” but that category’s mainly for help with WordPress.  What I love about Fresh From The… is the way it’s organized.  It’s divided into two main topics (baking and television) in a way I’ve never seen before; plus the top menu and the rest of the sidebar are interesting and easy to follow.  And the writing is delightfully clever, with a dry humor that’s right up my alley

Kudos to Jen,  the author!  Man, I wish my mind worked like that.

Yes, it’s another blog

After three posts about DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk and wanting to write more, I decided to dust off the ol’ SciFi Chicks blog.  I figure it’s a more fitting place to discuss television shows of a scifi/fantasy/horror nature than here, where the subject gets mixed in with all sorts of other crap stuff.

What better way to stretch my writing muscles than to actually write something?  And since I have a few posts about sci fi shows running through my head (while a big long post sits in my draft box here), I’ll be heading over there shortly.  Hope to see you there!

The Overholt Overhaul

I’m thinking this blog needs an overhaul.  The categories have gotten a bit out of control.  Not to mention the tags, which are so cluttered I don’t even show them.  And I know there’s probably plenty of dead links.

WordPress.com has changed so much since I began blogging here, and being the social media-phobe that I am, I don’t take full advantage of all the goodies offered.  But perhaps it’s time to change all that.

I’m soon going to have lots more time on my hands.  Retirement is looming (as in NEXT WEEK!) and one of my goals is to do more blogging.  I’m not sure what the overhaul will entail.  Hopefully it’ll include much more activity from me, both in posting, responding and visiting other sites.

Let’s just hope I don’t get sidetracked with trying to find the perfect theme.  😀
