I thought I would do something different. A while ago I decided to change the direction of my blog from what it was. When I first started blogging, I was doing a lot of tags and memes, and while they are great for gaining followers, I wasn’t happy that other than my monthly wrap-ups, my blog was nothing but tags and memes. So today I wanted to discuss things that are rarely seen and completely absent from my blog.
Tags- the only tags still visible on my blog are ones that I did when I decided to change the focus of my blog from random content to more bookish content. Any tags that I have been tagged in recently will not be done. They take up way too much time that I would rather spend crafting more original content.
Awards- I don’t do these either, they like tags just take up too much time that I would rather spend crafting my short story and discussion posts.
Blog tours- I know these are popular with a lot of bloggers, and they are great for promoting more unknown books, I haven’t found any yet that have really caught my eye.
Double posts- The only double posts on my blog are ones that I previously posted. I’m not the biggest fan of posting twice on the same day. I try to be really smart about how I plan my posts out, especially towards the end of the year.
Lifestyle posts- I am not a lifestyle person or a lifestyle blogger, I never have been, it’s not for me. I did a few posts when my blog didn’t have a structured focus, but they have been absent for quite some time. Unless I can incorporate books into a lifestyle post, you won’t be seeing any.
Memes- I have significantly cut down on a number of memes that I have been posting on my blog in favor of more original content. Occasionally I will still be posting Top 5 Wednesday, but that is it for memes.
I know that this might seem like a negative post, but I want my readers to know what to expect in terms of content on my blog.
