I don’t make new year resolutions. Every time I have done so in the past, they have failed miserably. Even when I just say something innocent, like “I will get round to that next year”, before I know it, that year has passed, and I didn’t do whatever it was.
2019 will be my seventh year of blogging, with the anniversary in the summer. Over the past few weeks, I am pleased to report my highest consistent daily views ever, with lots of very welcome comments on posts too. With that in mind, I am not planning any huge changes in the way I present this blog, or the content I post about.
As always, posts about Ollie remain popular, and my fiction pieces have a small but loyal following too. Adding photos to any post gives it an immediate boost, and although my series on songs and music are dear to my heart, they undoubtedly attract the least interest. That’s understandable. Musical taste is very personal. Blogging tips and opinions are by far the most popular subject. As I say repeatedly here, bloggers do love to read about blogging.
Two weeks into this new year, I have decided that change is not necessary. As Wellington said of the French Army at Waterloo, I will “Keep on coming on, in the same old way”.
If you are happy for my blog to stay the same, there’s no need to comment. If you have the opposite opinion, and would dearly love to see less of some things, and more of others, let me know. And if there’s something you really dislike, feel free to tell me that too.
I won’t promise to do anything about it, but I would be very interested to know.
