Tomorrow is this blog’s anniversary. I’ve been blogging for two years.
Two years! WOOHOO! I have to admit I’m proud of myself for keeping it going this long.
I didn’t have any concrete plans when I started my blog. I still don’t. It is what it is, and it will be what it is or what it becomes.
And it’s becoming something different.
You may or may not have noticed a certain structure to my blog posts. When I chose the name You learn something new every day for this blog, I intended to post the lessons learnt. I did not want to stray from this; just one post per day, of the lesson I’d learnt the day prior.
I’ve done that for two years (well, except for that whole one post per day thing). And while it was good to start with a structural rule of sorts, I think it’s run its course. So I’ve decided to change how I blog.
Now I’ll blog about whatever floats my blogging boat. Stories, moments, questions, things I’ve seen, things I’ve heard. News. Opinions. General wonderings. And yes, no doubt I’ll still post the occasional lesson learnt.
It’s that simple. It wasn’t going to be – I was going to rename this blog. ‘Rebrand’ it. New look, new approach, new topics, new labels, new ‘about me’, new tabs, new everything.
It was going to be fabulous. Of course. I was going to launch it all on the blog’s anniversary, all in one move. My loyal readers (hi mum!) were going to swoon, then rise unanimously in a virtual standing ovation. Confetti and balloons were going to fall from the ceiling. (I would have had to put them there myself, but still, it would have been thrilling.)
But no. All of that planning was distracting me from just doing it. So I’m just doing it. New blog style.
So what am I going to blog about? I have NO idea. I, like you, will just have to wait and see what comes.
Do you blog? Has your blogging style evolved since you started?
