I recently renewed my domain name for this site, so that means my blogiversary is coming up. Honestly, I wasn’t sure the blog would make it to this blogiversary. For the past year or so, I’ve increasingly been thinking that I should stop blogging. Not many people read this blog anyway (though the few who do are pretty fabulous) and blogging just isn’t what it used to be.

I also sometimes wish I had chosen a different name for this blog. (Though what else I would have chosen, I don’t know.) Sometimes I feel like the current name doesn’t really describe what it is anymore—or what I want it to be. Yes, I know I could change the name, but that’s a pain. I’d have to come up with a new domain name, put in a redirect for the old domain so I don’t lose all of my traffic (not that there’s that much anyway!) and readers, and who knows what else. So I probably won’t change this blog’s name, but who knows.

Anyway, I think my proper blogiversary is in March (I wrote two posts for a new blog in January 2011 and saved them on this blog, but I didn’t properly start blogging with this domain name until early March 2011). If I do have any blogiversary celebrations, March will be the time. But don’t count on anything, because I’m feeling decidedly unenthusiastic about this.

  1. Congrats! Yeah, blogging wasn’t what it was. I certainly have stopped for the most part, and so have a lot of bloggers whose work I used to read. The few that still blog seem to mostly use the contents as part of their business strategy of some sort.

    1. I don’t usually enjoy blogs when they’re part of a business strategy. That’s a really succinct way of putting it and is basically the reason I stopped reading Joanna Penn’s The Creative Penn blog. It used to be about writing, but as of late, I feel like she’s more using it as part of her business strategy, as you put it.

  2. I do hope you continue. I very much enjoy your blog, though I well understand the feeling that hardly anyone is reading it. Nevertheless, there aren’t many blogs out there that cover the topics you write about, and what you write about, I do enjoy reading! Cheers!

    1. Thanks so much, Decker! That really means a lot to me. I was in a bit of a malaise when I wrote that post. I’m feeling a lot more cheerful now, so the blogging will continue. 🙂
