everything is changing! Please comment.
So I owe a heartfelt thanks to the many of you who read and commented here in the last few weeks as I've processed my pre-move. Your words have encouraged me tremendously. I suppose after sharing my angst of the last few weeks, I'm probably owing you an update, something along the lines of 'first discoveries upon moving to London' or something like that. But it would be a pretty boring post, as the last three days have been doing little other than sleeping and catching up with old friends. I'm sure I'll have a bloggable reaction to London soon and then I'll be happy to share it.
But today, I wanted to ask your opinion, your help. Today's post is about asking for your advice. I know I don't have millions of readers, but I am sure some of you are reading this on your RSS feed, happily lurking and never commenting. I know who you are... well, some of you... and will be sad if you don't comment today. Please, today, I'd really really like your comment if you would... (picture me right now with a puppy-faced tear dropping from one eye as I write this in the faint hope that I still have at least one or two friends who will take the 2 minutes to comment on my blog)
Now that I've ended my Egypt assignment, I feel like I've crossed into a new phase of life. OK, I don't really feel like that, but I feel like I should feel like that. A lot about my life is going to change in the coming months, although I don't really know what or how.
What I do know is that it's time to start being a bit more intentional about blogging. Right now, I write whatever I write here and give it little to no strategic thought.
But as a part of my new life, it is now time to revamp the blog. Or start a new blog. Or replace this blog. Or all of the above. I want my blog to be a bit more focused, to fill a niche. Maybe I'll keep this blog as-is and add on another topical blog. Maybe I'll switch over entirely.
I need your wisdom here... What do you want to hear from me? What would make this blog interesting and relevant to your world? What bloggy niche do you think I might fill? Are there any features my blog should include? And if you come up with a title for that niche and I choose it, I'll probably owe you a prize.
