looking back on an unsuccessful week of blog change.

as its been a few days since I decided to change the way I blog, I thought it would be a good idea to look at how these changes have affected the blog…so far, not for the best. My views are right down, fewer likes and fewer comments. I could put this down to a few things:

  • The new content is simply uninteresting
  • Readers aren’t getting what they expect so aren’t interested
  • I’m simply no good at writing about my new topics yet
  • It may have just been an unlucky week…

Well, i’m not giving up just yet! I hold that the theme of this blog was never meant to become quite so biased to mainly poetry, with poetry only being one part of a much more diverse blog.

So i can keep up my target of a blog a day, i’ll have: poetry, other creative writing, art, music (mainly pointing out existing musicians, but if i ever get recording equipment, my own too) and more thoughts on general life and everything.

I’m putting down my decrease in views to not really knowing how to write a good post on anything but poetry yet, so hopefully through practice thoughtofvg will become a more interesting and exciting blog over the coming weeks, and not a slowly going downhill blog due to aimlessness.

only time will tell…

  1. don’t worry about it, my views vary and i often question my posts quality as well. i research better than i write analysis so … often i think i should be taking time to write my own. Is small trouble there, by time i get correct wording is old news lol 😛

  2. I have gone through some weeks where I did something different and people didn’t get it. But these things have to evolve. There is too much content out there. Other people doing things we could be doing. Originality is, by definition, unique to each of us, because it ORIGINATES from us. So do what you do. There are already people doing everything else. Better to have…
    Okay, who am I kidding? I ask people for suggestions on which way to go next all the time. But for a minute there I sounded almost like I knew what I was talking about.

    • Maybe thats how we end up knowing what we’re talking about-if you sound like you know what you are talking about, eventually you might truthfully know. Anyway, you were onto something with originality originating from us…

  3. Hang in there – we all have a low week now and then! I am finding that I don’t get around to all the blogs I like nearly often enough – there are just too many! Find ways to amp up your creativity and stay fresh, and keep at it!
