Mind Sieve and More!

Okay. I need to blog more. Problem is I'm BORING! I lead a somewhat orderly and mundane life. So what to do?

Well, after much thought, I think I've finally come up with a thing or two I can do on a regular basis thus creating a steady flow of posts. Better yet, it might even be interesting and whatnot! Even helpful! *gasp*

I'll continue doing the movie reviews, as we normally see one every week. Maybe throw in some TV reviews as well. Will probably do con reports on those weekends I'm not able to go to the movies due to being at a con. Will also add Mind Sieve posts and Picture Kaleidoscope posts! (Those two I am hoping to make regular features.)

For the Mind Sieve posts I'll list links and small descriptions for cool content and blog posts I've run across and RT'd on Twitter. This will give me a chance to better share these things since Twitter is so very NOW and blogs don't roll away as fast.

For the Picture Kaleidoscope I'll share whatever weird phone pics I took for the week but also present the cool stuff people have Tweeted or shown on Facebook that I've run across. Hopefully I will trip over enough material to keep all of us happy. And it's always nice to link back and forth anyway. The more the merrier! (Now if I could only figure out when the best days to post these things regularly would be...)

Well, let's get this party started shall we?

*drum roll please*
