After transferring all of my blog content to XO Sarah, I spent some time updating photos and categories. I went through probably 75 percent of my content, deleted a lot of stuff, and unexpectedly ended up with a really clear picture of what I want my blog to be.
When I look back I want to see more photos me and friends/family doing stuff and less posts with random photos from the internet. I’ll be ditching product round-ups and image heavy tutorials and focusing more on writing longer, more thoughtful (and helpful!) pieces with descriptive titles. And from my early years of blogging, no more mindless posts about nothing just for the sake of posting. (there were so many of those >_<)
Having the past six years of my life heavily documented is pretty awesome, but since most of my posts are now blogging and business-related I think it’s time for me to get back to writing in a journal on a regular basis.
If you’ve hit a blogging rut I highly recommend checking out your blogging past to help you envision the future. If you were to turn your blog into a book, which types of posts would make the cut and which would be headed for the trash?
