I’m attempting an experiment here. I’ve been using Tumblr to “blog” off and on for some time now and have not really used this site much. But as I have gone through an existential crisis over at Collected Miscellany I started thinking about what I really want to do with the domains I pay for.
I kicked around the idea of just giving up, which I might still do ;-)
But I decided that the best next step was to focus the content. I have flirted with general blogging over at CM occasionally but never really committed to it (surprising, I know). But I think that is the wrong approach. I think if CM has an value (and lets be blunt, the traffic is all but gone) it is in book reviews and author interviews not as a tumblr/blog. I’m going to try and clean that site up and use it just to post book reviews. I also hope to work on writing more focused and valuable reviews as part of that process (fingers crossed).
So. I decided that if I want a place to save quotes, links and opinions, that place is here at my eponymous home. I imported my Tumblr posts and set up this domain as a blog.
Do blogs still work? Does anyone really care what I think? Will I stick with this approach long enough to find out? Who knows. Stay tuned…
