How to improve this blog?

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

I have been thinking recently about ways in which to improve this blog: more original thoughts, less content, change the background, change the name and url to better describe it, have more structure, e.g. days with certain expectations and/or themes over a period of weeks.
What do you think? How could I make this better, more helpful to you as a reader, why is it you read this? All thoughts much appreciated.

I may have more to say that this at a later date (!) but for now I just want to say that it's your blog Chris and you need to keep it in a way that suits you best. One of the joys for me about reading other people's blogs is how very different they all are. I love reading yours because it has some of the most random information in it! There's the useful stuff and the funny stuff and it's all great. I hope you're not thinking it's not spiritual enough are you..........we are allowed to be different and express ourselves in different ways you know ;-}
See ya soon.
How's your wrist/hand?

I would say that your blog is fine that way it is! The only change that I could think of (and I'm being nit-picky here!), is that sometimes you don't post for a few days, then there is a flurry of 5-10 posts in the space of a few hours. Maybe posting little and often would be better? I realise this will be down to finding a few hours spare is a rarity!

I think it is around a couple of things for me: looking at the statistics it isn't read much, basically you guys, big Dave and a few others; secondly, I don't ever go particularly deep - it is a lot of linking to stuff from others, not many original thoughts or experiences, but I guess I am wary of how much you can blog about what happens in my job without it either sounding really boring and/or writing stuff that should probably just stay in a private journal.

Who knows, any more thoughts are much appreciated.

Well I read you blog and thoroughly enjoy what you write! I dont think you need to go particularly deep to make a blog good. The links you include are really useful and have given me loads to think about or use in my work, especially with the youth - they are things I wouldn't have found otherwise. Your blog is really different and I love reading it!

Ask yourself the question - why do I blog? The answer should tell you what to blog. To me, it never really mattered who read mine (which is probably why I now write a private one!)I was writing more for myself, some write more for others.
Personally, I now check in here once a week, reading what strikes me as interesting.
