Here We Go Again: ‘Jammin’ In July’ 2017

Hola readers,

This month I’ve decided to bring back a series that I started on my blog two years ago, known as ‘Jammin’ In July’.

This means that throughout the month of July I’ll be attempting to post twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, ending with (hopefully) 9 uploads. As I’ve said before, Summer is always a busy time on the music scene, so I thought it’d be fitting to bring back this series – and I really enjoyed it last year.

I’ve loosely planned the posts already, however, depending on what crops up throughout the month things may be subject to change. I’ve tried to include a mix of reviews, articles and chatty blogs so hopefully there’s something for everyone 🙂 . You can check out the full list below.

(As the posts go live I’ll add the hyperlinks so you can just click on each entry to see it.)

Jammin’ In July: The End (+ Fail?!)

Hi everyone,

It’s the last day of the month, which means that the time has come to wave goodbye to ‘Jammin’ In July’ also. I know that this series hasn’t gone exactly as planned in terms of regular posts and there are a few different reasons for that – from a week-long case of writer’s block to being without internet for four days during the first few weeks, as well as my other freelancing commitments becoming more intense.

I felt as though I’d planned out my time well, but it just seemed like one thing after another kept cropping up and as a result I haven’t posted twice a week, each week, as I’d planned to do. Though looking at the bigger picture, I only missed three out of the eight posts I’d planned, and threw in an extra post on the VMAs nominations, so when you look at it like that maybe it’s okay? 🙂

Either way, I’ll still be posting the three that I missed, and more, as I have so many new reviews to write about some amazing artists, which I’m super excited to share with you. Going forward, I’m still aiming to post 1 – 2 reviews a week throughout the month of August, which will enable me to make a good dent in my ‘blogs to do’ list.

So, even though ‘Jammin’ In July’ was kind of a fail, I hope that you’ve enjoyed the posts that did make it into the series and stay tuned for the ones coming up!

Welcome to: Jammin’ In July!

Hello again,

If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, then you may remember that I did a monthly thread called ‘Journaling in January’ at the beginning of the year. If you’re new here, or you just can’t remember back that far, I attempted to post a blog every weekday in January – managing three out of four weeks overall.

Posting everyday was a lot more intense than I first expected, or was ready for, but I did get a lot done having more of a sense of routine, naturally. Over the past few months I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of posting once a week; in the past I’ve set myself targets of 2-3 a week, but 1  is totally manageable in the event that anything crops up unexpectedly. So, to that end, I thought I’d do something a little similar for the month of July, hence the title of this post.

I didn’t want to commit myself to posting everyday again, as, as said, I felt that was a bit too much. So, throughout the month of July I’ll be posting two blogs a week: one on a Monday, and one on a Thursday. I feel that having the extra time will mean I won’t have to rush posting, and I’ll also have more of a window to share each post without it coming across as spammy.

I’m also being super organised and have got the majority of the posts planned out already, including: album reviews, discussion type posts and book reviews. (See the full list below, I’ll add in hyperlinks as each post goes live.)

So, I guess there’s nothing more to say except, welcome to ‘Jammin’ In July’ and I hope you enjoy it. I’ll be back on Monday with a review of Ed Sheeran’s newest album ‘X’… See you there?
