Tag Archives: improving a blog

What´s wrong with this blog? Five things to improve now.

I started this experimental blog about 4 months ago and it is time for an evaluation. Well rather than  focus on the negative , the errors ,  I prefer to look at it from a proactive perspective , what could be improved?

  1. Post regularly.   Have set days for posts and follow through. If you fall off on this people lose interest. ( On a trial basis I will set the days  Friday and Sunday, because I think more people read blogs on the weekend. I will pre-write them and set them to be posted automatically.)
  2. Set up categories in a logical, organized way. For example, I now have 3 very similar categories with only a few posts in each of them, environmental, vegetable garden and permaculture. This needs to be rethought and streamlined
  3. FOCUS.  Right now this blog is all over the place….. mediocre pictures of nature, poems I like, stories about people,  gardening , etc… too scattered. Not surprising because this  is how my mind works , I am interested in many things. But I have to either find a way to present this better , or narrow the focus of this blog.
  4. Tag correctly. In this area I have to do a bit of research to find key search words. Not really ready to do this yet because there are other improvements that take priority over this.
  5. Overcome procrastination ( aka become disciplined) . I have lots of ideas of things to write about, but I don´t always get around to sitting down and posting, and sometimes for no good reason.

I am enjoying the process of the newbie blog, even though I am far from satisfied with the present state of it.  But no problem,  I am learning and there is no pressure involved.
