(6:00 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-changes?The initial run of Permission Mondays was a success, despite my insane introductory post. I feel confident to move forward with this as a new weekly feature, providing bookends to the work week.
Tuesday was originally chosen for the Hatred feature because it seemed to be evenly spaced out with the Friday Confessional. It seems to me that there is nothing intrinsically hateful about Tuesday, and that the addition of a new feature provides an opportunity to move the Tuesday Hatred to a traditionally more hateful day, namely Wednesday. In addition to being "hump day," Wednesday has rich overtones for all of our recovering Nazarene readers because of Wednesday night church. Plus I feel like participation in Claire's hatred yesterday was low, in large part because you were still so exhausted from asking permission -- in short, I cockblocked her.
In any case, if we moved Hatred to Wednesday, the end result would be a nice rhythm: get permission Monday, experience catharsis on Wednesday, and obtain absolution on Friday, then enjoy some jazz Friday evening. The other days of the week will be reserved for "actual content" -- even though, strictly speaking, The Weblog has so thoroughly realized the formal elements of blogging as no longer to need any content at all.
So what do you think? Move Hatred to Wednesday, or keep it on Tuesday? Make your voice heard!
