Friday Five: Weekly Blog Features

Today I am taking a page from Running is Funny (and many other blogs out there), and hopefully this will become my 3rd weekly feature. I'm still wrestling with how I want this to go, but I will either pick a theme every Friday and post 5 things that match that theme, or I'll just post 5 random things that happened that week or come to mind that day =P I guess random is a theme ;)

Today's theme is weekly blog features. In an attempt to blog more regularly, I am implementing some recurring blog features. I'm trying these out for now and we'll see if I stick with them. I could use your help for more ideas since I may run out of material for some, or grow tire of it, and need to replace it eventually.
  1. Monday Brain Exchange -- I plan to play along every week with the topic/question posted at Finishing is Winning.
  2. Wednesday One Green Thing -- This is my newest feature and one that will not likely last because I'll run out of things to post about. I guess I'll just need to find new was to save our environment :) I may just start going through green guides on the web (e.g. Green Guide or Planet Green)  and post about which I'm doing and try those that I'm not.
  3. Friday Five -- You are here! =)
  4. Sunday Week Recap (needs a clever name) -- I've tried this before and it ever only lasted for a week or two, but I am going to give it another try now that I will be doing 3 sports regularly. This will also help make writing the monthly recaps easier.
  5. Random - I'll also regularly post about the following as they occur: race reports, monthly recaps (including progress on yearly goals), 101 things progress, yearly recaps, gear reviews, and much more! 
So reading this, you'd think I'll be posting 5 days a week. Ha! I'll try, but it's entirely possible I'll skip one or more of these features on any given week due to lack of time or creativity :) But if I shoot for 5, I should be able to get in at least 3.

    I used to try to do a lot of weekly posts, but then I got all flustered with it and narrowed it down to only 2 a week (three things tuesday and a Sunday week in review) until I felt ready to add a third again, which you already know is the Monday Brain Exchange.

    Just do what feels right for you!

    That's a good point. I'll see how this goes and scale back if needed. I blogged for 30 days in February and was a bit burnt out after that but ready to get back to it now :)
