the future of my blog
Being New Year and all, I’ve got thinking about the future of things, and naturally this blog as well.
Ever since I’ve started writing here in April 2011, I’ve been searching for the right niche for this webspace and made the conclusion that it is too early to make a decision on a narrow subject. The past 3 months were the result of various experiments and naturally, the posts were very diverse. I still haven’t made my mind up, whether I should do something about this.
I can’t say in one sentence what my blog is about, but I do have some things I want to do with it which are:
1. share information – probably within my field, because that’s where I have the most insight. I have tried writing some texts about music here, here and here, but this blog was more about me in my free time, where I can chat about life away from composition and other headaches, so this kind of posting defied the joy of my blog.
2. communication – I wanted to stop the Facebok-oriented manner of microblogging and write substantial texts expressing my thoughts in a more personal webspace. I think I have achieved this, although I still only have a handful of comments, so the communication is still rather one-way. I guess I need to get more blog traffic first to achieve this.
3. express personal thoughts and opinions – This correlates to 2. but slightly different in that I wanted a space which is entirely my own. Sometimes I start being extremely honest about things and regret having posted it altogether.
4. share interesting pictures – which is fairly recent. I love looking at blogs consisting of only pictures and wished to do that myself. I have done a few attempts here and here last December, but I also have perky pictures I’ve taken myself now and then, which don’t have much context anywhere in my daily life. I decided to create a Tumblr log to store them. (A what?!) This will be updated daily, hopefully for a long time! Brr..
I guess things will go on as it did until now, and the identity of the blog will inevitably portray myself as a person with diverse interests and unpredictable direction of thought process!?
