I need more balance in my life and especially in my blogging. Part of my base character that is associated with my Asperger’s traits is I tend to become obsessively focused on something and everything else just falls by the wayside. The day-to-day insanity coming from the Oval Office along with the now weekly mass killings is putting me over the edge. I have to force myself to greatly diminish my attention to these subjects.
To do that I am now going to try to broaden the scope of coverage here at RJsCorner. As you can see from the header above I plan on giving my attention to seven different areas, one day at a time. Another change is that I am bringing back my photo activity back to RJsCorner. After 3+ months of attempting to move it off to a dedicated site, it is clear that there just isn’t enough interest for it to stand alone.
Here are the topics for each day of the week:
Monday – Government/Politics
Monday is reserved for “Inside The Beltway” issues. You likely know where I come from on these issues.
Tuesday – This Land Is Your Land
This topic will primarily encompass a photo journal of my travels across America.
Wednesday – Having My Say
This one is a potpourri of topics that just don’t fit anywhere else but I have something to say about it. Some of that will include stories from my life, some about my lessons learned, and some just about things I have been thinking about or just plain bug me.
Thursday – American Heroes
The principal person in this category is Will Rogers. I already have an abundance of posts of Will’s quotes in the archives. Jefferson and other founding fathers will also be prominent here. Many current day people who inspire me in one area or another will also share this space.
Friday – Why?? (Question Everything)
I have lived with the “why” word all my life. Many seem to outgrow it after childhood but not me. Questioning Everything is at my core! I am just not one to accept “that is the way it is..” and this category will illustrate that. A big part of Friday posts will be busting long-established myths.
Saturday – Artsy/Creative/Surreal
This category is where my creativity and craziness is unleashed on you. 🙂
Sunday – God/Religion/Spiritual
After my rather intense spiritual studies of about a decade ago, I have come to have I have come to develop several different views on this broad subject matter.
I don’t necessarily plan on posting every day here but I will stick this agenda schedule for when I do post. I hope you like the new directions for RJsCorner. If you have any ideas for new topics and such let me know. I welcome any input you might want to provide and look forward to delving into my more complete view of the world with you.

I think you will enjoy this. It is a blogger on WordPress I follow. He does great photography.
Thanks, Mary for the link. Yes, I like it very much. Beautiful pictures and a unique approach to presenting them which I will likely try to emulate to a degree at my MyViewOfTheWorld.net site.
I went to this site…very nice pictures!
Looking forward to your new agenda even though I enjoy your blog as it is. Mary Ellen
I am humbled by your comments Mary Ellen. It’s nice to be liked 🙂
This new approach has been pinging off my brain all day and this post is becoming my “Leaves of Grass” in that it even if it was published it is not done. Whitman wrote his novel and published several very different editions throughout his life. I too, seem to never be satisfied with this post. Eventually, it will be “what I want”… (ha).
