If we were having coffee, you’d find me in my pajamas, curled up on the couch with Little Jedi, Tank, and likely Sam, too. Yes, we have an extra-large couch—we looked for a couch that would allow room for the three of us (Tank came later) to snuggle together, and we found a big, totally purple, totally comfy couch. It’s not bright purple, nor is it quite eggplant, but it’s definitely purple. And comfy.
It’s been another busy week around here, and I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather. Everything seems to have hit fast-forward since Little Jedi and Sam went back to school/the office respectively, with many things competing for our attention in the evenings. The days are getting noticeably shorter, too; I do better in the sunshine. My work week isn’t quite over, either—I’m working a photography job this evening, so I’m using the morning and afternoon for pajamas and lazing about.
Tomorrow I expect to be thoroughly exhausted. We’re photographing a circus-esque, vaudeville-esque show on the 10th anniversary of Katrina, and we’re sure to be working past midnight. And so Sunday will mostly be a day of catching up on sleep and blogging ahead for the week.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’ve finally finished the blog revisions that I’ve been doing (at least for the foreseeable future!) and am working on revising my social media strategies and planning for an extra-special October here at Part-Time Monster. I’ve been cooking up some fun and games with fellow bloggers. I’m so excited about this project!
I’ve managed, somehow, to stumble through managing the social media accounts without any kind of manager—until the last few weeks. I’m now managing pages for two other accounts aside from Part-Time Monster on several sites. I did a bit of research and decided to start using Buffer, and it’s working really well for what I need.
I’m still figuring out how to make the most use of its features, but my life just got way easier. The Buffer queue is A Handy Thing—it allows me to schedule updates for all sorts of social media accounts. I certainly don’t want Buffer to take over the way I send updates completely, but I think it’s possible to maintain steady activity with it, especially for the business pages I run, and still be spontaneous. So far, it’s working.
I’d also tell you that on Monster Monday you’ll find Urszula here, and she’s got a really fascinating monster to talk about. Regular features will run on Tuesday and Wednesday; also on Wednesday, you can catch me on Sourcerer talking about the Sex Criminals, a comic book series in which the main characters discover they can stop time when they orgasm. (Yes, you read that right, and no, you don’t want to miss talking about this one!) On Friday, there’ll be a feminist post.
For now, I’m off to have coffee with some of you before heading out for an evening of work. Link up your coffee posts below, hop around the linky, and don’t forget to use the #weekendcoffeeshare tag on Facebook and Twitter!
