Expanding Blogging Horizons
I started blogging about 7 years ago, writing about crafting, especially my other hobby of cross stitch and trying to get into quilting and other hand embroidery. That fell by the wayside a few years ago as I spent more time reading and building up this book blog. I still like to think that I’d be able to balance both sets of blogs and pay almost equal attention to them. I dont see a point where I will go into podcasting or vlogging – I feel I dont have the face or the voice for it! . I spend enough time in front of the computer as it is – I’m still trying to streamline the amount of time I spend so I can go off and do the interesting things to allow me something good to blog about!
Occasionally I do wonder whether I should get my own domain, or some of the upgrades offered by wordpress, but at the moment I’m struggling to justify to my mind the cost versus the smallish level of traffic (and lack of revenue) coming from either blog.
It was a while ago that I realised that my posts were, perhaps, a little light, bland or repetitive and that perhaps short reviews weren’t all that was required. Therefore I am making an effort to expand out what I post here – things like spreading out into ArmchairBEA, taking part in other non-review-related posts, and remembering that ultimately I am trying to be a better reviewer.
