This blog has been running for a good three months now, and I’ve really enjoyed and truly do appreciate how wonderful everyone has been toward my new open, no-niche, style of blogging. I’ve loved the welcoming community and the wonderful engagement I’ve had on this blog, and now I’d like to add something to it. I still have a lot of content I want to slowly put onto this blog, namely more about mental health, video and board game reviews and probably a lot of nostalgia and other stuff too. I want this blog to be a bit of me on the internet, but there’s something missing right now which I’d like to start adding.
For those of you who have read my about page, you’ll know that this isn’t my first time as a blogger. I used to do niche blogging, mainly on books but also some creative stuff too. Because of this a bunch of book reviews, poetry and a few other things which I’m extremely proud of are still locked away on my old blogs. They are no longer visible to the public, but some of my previous content is stuff which I still want to share with everyone, especially some great books that have excited and moved me over the years. So, to fix this dilemma in my head, I thought I could bring some of my old content to you here, in the form of occasional extra posts.
For most of you this ‘old’ content will be new anyway. The books I want to talk about aren’t older than two or three years old, most of them are newer, but these books took me time to read, many of them really moved me, and I’d love to share them with you. Doing so will let you see just how many wonderful books there are out there still, and I’d like to think that sharing the reviews might in some way brighten up someone’s day, as would sharing some poetry or other things. None of the posts I’d share are very old and they are posts that I spent hours writing, things that I am proud of putting together, but I’d like to give them a permanent home – here. The only thing I can’t move over easily are photos. So my old book reviews will be lacking photos, but I’ve invented a new header image to go with these reviews – I hope you like it! 😀
I hope you won’t mind this new move? I want to try to move over all my content from my old blogs onto this one and I figure that one or two posts a week would help move most of it over the next year, starting this week 🙂 Because I want to keep my current content going strong, I was thinking about adding this new content at the weekend, at least for the next few weeks. If I can’t keep up at weekends then I’ll fit in the odd post among my new stuff. This doesn’t mean that I will stop posting new stuff – my mind’s so full of things to post that I just can’t stop! 😛 – but at least a post a week will help move my stuff over, and hopefully entertain you too 🙂 New content will be posted with a message at the top stating when it first appeared online…I figure it’s the best way to avoid any odd people suggesting that I stole the reviews/posts 🙂
What do you think of this new plan? Would you mind a few posts from older blogs appearing here? What do you think about me posting more than 5 times a week? Let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂
