Guess what? That also applies to the blog. Yep. LITTOF has lacked structure. I've been posting when I feel like I have something to say, rather than sticking to a structure and just writing what is there for me in that moment. I've always worked better on a deadline. So here we go.
At the minimum, there will be new LITTOF posts on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays.
MONDAYS will be open-ended. I will be writing about whatever is there for me/us. Like always.
WEDNESDAYS will be regular posts from my mom, the Realtor. We're not sure what we'll be calling her guest blogs. Perhaps simply "Mom the Realtor." Mom will be writing from her perspective as a Mom and as a Realtor. As a mom/Realtor who watched her daughter lose her house. As a Realtor for 30 some years who is constantly re-inventing herself. So... here's where we need some input.
WHAT would you like to hear from my mom? What kind of questions do you have for her? Either post them in the comment section or please e-mail them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
FRIDAYS will be dedicated to links and stories around the web related to LOVE & FORECLOSURE... pretty broad topics, actually. It's an effort to share my research and stories/websites/blogs I find interesting.
So that's the minimum. I'm committed to continuing to write as honestly as I have been about our situation. We continue to be on a roller coaster ride. Thankfully there is now a light at the end of the tunnel. The island. And... that is a happy ending.
Which leads me to the final note. "A Foreclosure with a Happy Ending" is a story that Dennis Rodkin from Chicago Magazine's "Deal Estate" blog has written about us. It's up on their site today. You can see it here.
Okay. Please let us know what you'd like to hear from my mom in her new weekly guest posts. And as always, send me your questions/thoughts/suggestions.
How have you found freedom in structure?
