I know I go on about this all the time, but I’m not entirely happy with my blog as it is. There are various reasons for this, but the main one is that I don’t think that my voice comes through in what I write. I feel somehow at a distance from what I post, and I don’t want it that way! I want people to read my posts and feel like they are getting to know me just a little bit. I also want to have a thought and be able to write about it, without thinking about how it fits in with what I usually post.
So, to begin with, my posts will be titled differently. I liked the whole ‘Jane loves…’ pattern, but it was quite restrictive. I will still be employing them as and when I see fit, but from now on, titles will be plucked from the air. Tuesday Treat will be sticking around though!
Secondly, I’m thinking about a new title for the blog. As I think I’ve mentioned before, I would prefer for it to match up with my URL and have something to do with ‘Cupid’s Bow’, but I’m struggling to come up with anything! I’ve decided to run another poll, to see what you guys think!
The problem with the word ‘Cupid’ is that any word with which I pair it ends up sounding like I am running a dating website! My other idea was to rename the blog something else that is, again, unrelated to the URL, but something better than ‘Lady Writer’. What do you think?
I also want a new layout and a whole new look. I can just about work that out myself (although of course it will be very basic!), and as soon as I’ve decided on a new name, I’ll be sorting it out!
And lastly, as I mentioned, the content of the blog will be changing slightly. I rarely post ‘Links’ round-ups any more, but I really wanted to try and get away from a regular round-up anyway. I’ll continue to draw your attention to anything I find particularly interesting, and I might bring in an end-of-the-week roundup of anything I think you should be looking at. I’ll also continue to do a weekly television round-up (I missed this week, sorry!), though the name of that post will possibly change. I also used to love doing my ‘Weekend Wrap-Up’, but sometimes it’s hard to find ten images to share with you! I was also aware that I was sharing images with you that I didn’t have permission to share, so I nipped that in the bud. I always source any images I use, but when they are artwork by people and I haven’t asked permission, I shouldn’t be doing it, and I don’t any more. So, I might try and do a ‘Weekend Wrap-Up’ that involves my own photos, but we’ll see. Stay tuned for that one! I’m also considering reviews of certain things, whether they are products, days out, books or films. I enter a lot of competitions, and I win a fair few, so I’m thinking about reviewing things I receive as prizes. Again, though, I haven’t quite decided on this yet, it’s something that I may do on a separate blog, to keep this one free for everything else.
So, stay tuned. I hope you notice the changes, and that they are to your liking! Please let me know what you think about all this, my readers are an elite group of people but I love it that anyone reads what I have to say, and I especially love it when you comment to tell me what you think!
