The Autodidact in the Attic is written by V. L. Craven and focuses on the darker in books, film and art, with the occasional foray into science, technology, and critical thinking.
As well as being a blog, TAitA is a digital commonplace book –a collection of notes, quotes, and images I enjoy.
I’m currently working on a novel so all posts are periodically, except film and books reviews, which should be weekly.
Monday: [Once or twice a month] Review of a website, post about related links, or an interview with an interesting & creative person.
Tuesday: [Weekly] Film, television or documentary review
Wednesday: [Periodically] Essay typically about something macabre. Guest posts also go up on Wednesdays.
Thursday: [Weekly] A single image, images with a common theme, or collection of artwork by a single artist.
Friday: [Weekly] Reading Review–novel, non-fiction, short stories, comics, periodicals, cereal boxes. If it can be read, it can be reviewed.
Saturday: [Weekly] Media, typically animation or short film. Sometimes music videos.
Sunday: [Occasionally] Technology Post. Generally app or game reviews.

It would not be well that all men should read the pages that are to follow;
a few only may savour their bitter fruit without danger.
