Blog Dreams

July 29, 2011 at 12:41 am Leave a comment

This evening I’m sitting at the Cambridge Public Library, researching and planning for my next move in blog-land. My head is full-up of lessons learned from WordPress Wordcamp, and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. There seem to be so many decisions to make:

  • Start a new blog or try to continue using Librarytour (I’m leaning towards a new blog, especially since I bought a domain)?
  • Use a free WordPress blog, or stretch my wings and skills by paying to have a site hosted?
  • Which theme to use?  What elements do I want to feature?
  • What to do about the fact that my digital camera broke and I’m grounded for a while in terms of access to new photos (of my own making)?
  • Will people like or be interested in my new blog?  Do I want them to be?!
  • Is it wise to devote my time to developing an professional/thoughtful online presence instead of working on the third draft of my middle-grade novel?

Last, and perhaps loudest in my head/heart, is the wish to just be in it already!  If there’s one thing that makes me uncomfortable (rest assured, there are many things), it’s being new.
