Edi's Lighthouse Chatter: Council of War

Hello, I'm the keeper of the minutes or as most people call me Kotm. What does it mean this council of war?
Did you watch the first episodes of the TV series Heroes? It doesn't matter if you don't know it. Most important you need to know is, that there has been a story arc called Save the cheerleader, save the world.
For this post we - Kotm, Bona, Fide and Bona Fide - took over the body and brain of ediFanoB. This is our council of war where we will discuss just one matter: Save ediFanoB, save Edi's Book Lighthouse.
I know that sounds pathetic but it isn't. If you follow this part time blog regularly you will have noticed that in the past two weeks ediFanoB announced reviews and the postponed them. We know the true reasons for it.
BUT as readers we also know that people like reliability and regularity. We are afraid that ediFanoB will going down the drain with his blog expectations. We don't want it. We love the blog, we love to post, we love to read and we love ediFanoB.
Therefore we held our council of war. We don't want to bore you with the details of discussions.
Our decisions:

- We remove the box Next Post from the right column.We think it is more serious to show no information instead of wong information. In future we will announce our posts via Twitter and Facebook.

- ediFanoB's main task will be Edi's Weekend Wave and due to reliability and regularity it will be posted every Saturday (except holiday and Armageddon)

- Other posts, especially reviews, will be done by us (Kotm, Bona, Fide and Bona Fide) That means reviews will look slightly different from now on

- We no more longer promise fixed dates for reviews

- Bring back the joy and fun of blogging to ediFanoB

Today we have the perfect weather for reading in our region: RAIN
Before return control to ediFanoB (don't worry there is always a subtle control in our hands)
we like to tell you something about the reading progress in May 2010:

Before we hand back the control to ediFanoB let me ask you just one question?

Any plans for summer 2010?

What do you think about a holiday in Dubai including a visit of the world's largest aquarium?


See you soon back on Edi's Book Lighthouse

Sincerely yours,
KotM

Take some time to sort things out. We will be here, so no worries. :) I can understand how life can pressure on you and it is best to kep your schedule in secret so that it seems that you are not missing deadlines.

Harry,

thank you for your kind words. I know you understand my situation very well from your own experience.

I must say I fell a lot better after this post.

Harry Markov said...

Yes, because of my experience I can say that you need to step down and be happy with whatever productivity, you can muster.
