Back in August I started on a journey of becoming a stay-at-home mom to school-aged children after being in the workforce for years. I didn't really have any plans or specific goals in mind when I started this blog. But that was just the point, wasn't it? I love the fact that I do not have any cold hard rules. I can literally do "this" anyway I want.
After all, I started this blog as a way to not only express myself but also to connect with other people who have similar interests and life stories. What I've discovered (self-discovery is good, right?) is that I not only rekindled my love of reading over the last 18 months or so, but also my passion for sharing books with others. That was the main reason I started writing book reviews as part of my blog in the first place. If one person reads a book they otherwise would not have because of one of my reviews, I have succeeded.
The book reviews I have written so far seem to get a fair amount of attention. I was ecstatic to learn that the world of readers isn't dead. So, I'm thinking about creating a second blog just for my book reviews. Those of you in the blogging community know what a major decision it is to start ONE blog, let alone having two to keep up with. However, I am certainly writing more book reviews than I anticipated - which means, "Yay for me, I'm getting the time to read!" In fact, I've already created a separate page on my original blog just for my reviews (Book and Movie Reviews) to help readers find them more easily. Perhaps separating the two blogs altogether will keep posts more organized and blogs more subject specific.
So.......what do you think? Split into two blogs or stay with the one? Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. And, as always, thanks for reading and thanks for your part in my journey.
P.S. You know when you pick up a stray cat - and then you name it - there's no turning back, right? You WILL be taking the cat home with you for good. Well, I'm already brainstorming names for the new blog.
I too have thought about opening up a new blog. I use to have two but I just felt like one was not getting enough of my time. Good luck on your journey and I think you should try something at least once, so good luck.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Deedra. You are absolutely right about one, perhaps, then not getting enough time. That is probably my biggest concern!Delete
I say stick to one, but if you do plan on increasing book reviews two would make sense. I am sure it would give you more organization to your thoughts, so as an organizer I am all for that. Best of luck with it, and let me know where it is so I can keep up with all of your amazing reads, please!ReplyDelete
Yes, if I do decide to split, I'll be sure to let everyone know. I figured even if I added 2-3 book reviews a month to a new blog that might be enough. I'll keep thinking.Delete
whatever you decide it would be the right decision GOOD LUCK.ReplyDelete
