blog improvements

when I'm looking for new blogs to follow, I do sort of a quick scroll through the first page of their most recent entries, and if I like what I see, I follow them.

the thing is, it got me thinking about my own blog. does it have direction? do my entries interest my readers? do I post often enough? will people who scroll through my blog subscribe to my posts?

yeah, a lot of the answers were 'no.' this year, I would like to improve this blog. I would like to take more photos, make more regular entries, and make my posts more focused on particular topics. there are a lot of good posts out there by other bloggers about how to begin to do this; I just have to find them.

I have already given my blog a little facelift, and I've been posting more regularly on my photo blog, thanks to Chantelle's photo-a-day challenges, so I'm at least headed in the right direction. right?

  1. I do this, too! Sometimes you can just get a few entries in or see what all the pictures are and I'm often either: I love this! or...This is not going to happen. A lot of times if I'm unsure of if I'm going to like something long-term, I bookmark it and keep coming back to check in and see how I feel about it over time. Some of my faves have been found this way.
    I know what you mean about blog improvements. I love your blog, but I always find myself wishing you posted more. *Sorry. I know I have to improve on mine - sharing more pictures is a big problem for me. Let me know if you come across any good suggestions or photo challenges or anything. Not to be a nerd, but maybe (if you wanted) we could work together on something like that.
