Monday Status Update – Week 10

will_alan_site_10The limerick project is continuing with #tweet week. This week will focus on the trending topics of the day and see how this impacts traffic and other analytics. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64.

Last week saw the launch of a new series of poems; the Amanda, written in iambic tetrameter. One of these days I’m actually going to figure out just what the hell that is. I also posted the Lynda Carter essay, one #toplessTuesday tanka graphic poem, a Friday limerick recap, and of course the Monday status update.

So this is the current content pattern; Monday Status Update, Topless Tuesday Tanka, Wednesday “Something I Find Sexy” essay, and at least one poem on Thursday, looks like it will help to keep me on track.

As always, chime in with your comments and thank you for following along!

Monday Status Update

will_alan_site_10Well its Monday and I’m doing the Monday status update. Lately, that counts as an achievement. This is the fifth week of the new year, and the first week of February. The limerick project is continuing with #tweet week. Each day’s limerick will be based on a trending hash tag from that morning. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64.

Last week saw two new Diana Series poems. I’ve been focused on this series because I’m thinking about releasing a volume of Diana pieces through Smashwords. I think it might be the perfect vehicle for experimenting in self e-book publishing. I will of course take notes and hopefully report on this in an essay or two.

This week I’ll post and other Diana and put together an essay on some technical aspect of the craft. I really do need to get back to the craft of writing. January was, as I’ve said before, a rather unproductive month. I will strive not to let February follow in its footsteps.

 

Limericks Week 4 – #tweet

Its #blonde week! here on my limericks pinterest page.

I post these little gems on my twitter feed… its all pretty simple and it has been helping me get myself in a creative mood in the morning. It beats trolling Facebook news feeds which had been my ‘morning with coffee’ routine. These are the pics for 1/25 through 1/30 (Mon – Fri, the pics for Saturday and Sunday are pinterest only)

You can check out all of the limericks on my pinterest page – http://www.pinterest.com/willalan64/limericks/

Monday – Status Update

will_alan_site_10Happy 2015!

This is the first week of the new year. I am kicking off #newyears week, an irreverent look at the upcoming Holiday. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64.

I’ve been making a list and checking it twice. I’ll continue putting out poetry, especially the sexy haiku. I’ll be creating a separate menu selection for the essays and posting them as subordinate pages after posting them as posts in the general feed. As the football season winds down this month… expect more cheerleader limericks, and top ten lists.

This week will be a time of crafting the blog for the upcoming year. I’ll be going over the site’s analytics this week and see what you the audience wants more of. Stories, poems, essays, pictures, I’ll be reviewing the whole year. I think that it will provide grist for another essay.

Monday – Status Update – Wait Till Next Year

Autumn Status Update

Its week 50 of 52, we are in the final fortnight of this year! As far as the #limericks project goes, things are on course. I am kicking off #sexyelf week, an irreverent look at the upcoming Christmas season. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64. I’ve set a goal of doubling my twitter followers through this project. I’m also looking now at setting ‘engagement’ goals through the analytics.

This week the top ten will be celebrating the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, a seasonal ‘must see TV’ of CBS Tuesday night. Our essay this week will feature will feature Miss Taylor Swift and a little used practice to correct her behavior. After that, on thursday, another poetic series may be created but that is still in the works.

These next two weeks will be a time of crafting to blog for the upcoming year. I’ll be going over the site’s analytics and see what you the audience wants more of. Stories, poems, essays, pictures, I’ll be reviewing the whole year. I think that it will provide grist for another essay.

Monday – Status Update – Site Stats Spike

Autumn Status Update

Its week 48 of 52, four weeks left in this year! As far as the #limericks project goes, things are on course. I am kicking off #thanksgiving week, an irreverent look at the upcoming orgy of food, then shopping. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64. I’ve set a goal of doubling my twitter followers through this project. I’m also looking now at setting ‘engagement’ goals through the analytics.

This week the top ten will be celebrating thanksgiving as well, and Wednesday another essay will be posted so watch for a nice picture of Scarlett Johansson.

I’m still working on a title for the new project. I’m thinking “Objects in the Rear-view Window”, or ” The Past Approaches with Stealth”. I have to think of something catchy other than “Do Me My Friend’s Daddy” lol.

Also.. watch for it on Smashwords… I am in the process of putting the Caitlin story together and formatting it for distribution.

As for last week, the site stats took a real spike on Friday following the release of the Diana series poem. I think the traffic spike was due to a formatting change on the tweet announcing the posting on the blog. I will be putting together another poem, perhaps a Julia sonnet and formatting the tweet with similar hash-tags and so if I can replicate the traffic.

Monday – Status Update

Autumn Status Update

Its week 45 of 52, (less than seven weeks left in this year!) and its #blondes week on the limericks project. This week’s limericks will all be focused on sexy blondes but its the images that I’m focused on. There appears to be an anomaly with the twitter analytics and I’m using the limerick’s images to investigate it further. I’m sure I’ll be posting the results of that investigation here. So stay tuned for that. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64.

Last week was not productive one here at the Will Alan blog;  I put together another ‘‘Tuesday Top Ten’ item, my list of the Top Ten Halloween costumes, and I posted the Friday limerick roundup. I didn’t post any poems or essays, and I did not release another episode of the weekly serial. I really do need to take a good hard look at that piece and see what I can do to lengthen it, and make it more relevant to erotic fiction and just make it a better story. I’m thinking that if I make the segments larger and more ‘encapsulated’, I will be able to maintain a focus on quality.

In the meantime (blah blah blah blah-blah):
