Blog Update

Since I've been on my blog now for a few years, I am really itching to overhaul it. To change the name, format, everything. Any advice?

I feel like I've outgrown what I can do with this particular set-up, and I want to make so many changes that I think it will be easier to start from scratch. I also want to focus on my writing like I haven't done before--I enjoy blogging but I think I would like to concentrate on it a little bit more. And in order to do that I think I need to find a nitch, but my interests are so varied it might be difficult for me to stick to any particular topic exclusively.

So I'd like to ask from my readers, what sort of updates should I make? What sort of topics are the most interesting and most relevant? From those who know me, what would it be best for me to write about? So far most of my posts tend to be miscellaneous musings, notes from lectures, classes, and seminars, and personal experiences.

Thanks in advance for all the tips!

As far as blogging goes, you should consider moving to Wordpress. They have much better templates and lots of great add-ons. I've been blogging for about 3 years now and Wordpress is by far the best platform out there.

You've voiced a similar desire before. If it ain't broke...

I have thought about taking another template and just posting it on blogspot, since I'm familiar with it. I've also asked my husband if he'd consider writing me a template. He's so busy though, I'm afraid to ask again.

And on it being "broke" well... in my opinion it kind of is, since it's not handling everything I want, or not as efficiently as I think it could be.

I love almost everything you write. I would be disappointed if you changed everything. So my advice: Leave as is, but write more, engage more and don't be afraid to be controversial.
