Lately, I have been thinking about the future of my blog.

While I began blogging here as a hobby and a past time, I think I would like it to be more than that. Or maybe I won’t. I keep going back and forth a lot, and would love to see/hear more about how it would work.

I am a freelance writer and a digital marketer, but I don’t think my site reflects that at all. I just want to see this site going somewhere. As you can see, I am being absolutely unclear on that.

If anyone here or anyone you know has made the jump from a book blog/site to something else, please let me. I would love to have a chat.

What I read this week

With all that is happening around Israel-Palestine chaos, I wanted to understand more. And that’s why I jumped at the opportunity to join the read-a-long for Against the Loveless World by Susan Abulhawa.

It follows the life of a Palestine refugee who searches for a better life in the Middle East. I am about half way into and I am enjoying it immensely. I will be back with a review soon.

What I watched this week

I am re-watching some episodes of Mom starring Anna Faris. And also watching Invincible on Prime – another super hero animation, which I am loving so far.

On my blog

    The last six months or so, I’ve been pivoting my content into an overall strategy to hopefully earn an income. It’s slow going but that’s what I wanted, and a lot of trial and error.

    I’m loving my blog more now than I did the last year. I love making the posts and will keep doing it like this I think. I’m reading such great books because of it lately.
    I am trying to do more on Twitter and Instagram as well.. since I seem to get the most visitors from there.
    Good luck with figuring out where you’ll want your blog to go. 😉

    I’m slowly changing mine to have content for lifestyle, fashion, recipes. I’m also including services for copywriting, proofreading, translation of documents/books, among other things. The blog will be primarily focused on books, but I want to include other aspects that interest me.

    I think about my blogging all the time. I really only do it for fun and for books and cats. It’s just a hobby for me. I’m sure whatever you decide will be right for you.

    I don’t know if I necessarily changed my blog too much, but I did start as a book blogger only, and now I include posts about my life, etc. I changed the platform and the name. When I had my son, I switched things up a bit. I think you should do what makes you happy! 🙂

    Good luck with your blog! I’ve been thinking about the future of mine too. I would love to leave Blogger and get someone to redesign the site, but that will be a lot of work and money. I don’t know if my hobby is worth the investment.

      I totally get that. I did a lot of soul searching before I made that jump.

    I really, really only blog for fun and to talk books. I don’t actually do any other digital work and school sometimes drain my energy and creativity so much that I hardly get time to blog. But I think it might be frustrating if you are more into graphics and technology. I do hope you will find some clear answers!

    Have a good week and happy reading!

    My week was good but tiring thank you – so pleased we have the school’s half-term break now to rest up ready for the last push to the summer. As for my blog, I have never really thought of doing anything more with it to be honest, but I wish you all the best it whatever you choose to do from or with it yourself. Take care and happy reading in the coming week. 🙂

    I’ve been thinking about it too. I want to talk about gaming stuff sometimes, I posted a restaurant review recently, just branch out a little. I do think it an be frustrating when you do freelance work or other interests but the blog doesn’t really reflect it. I hope you have success with whatever changes you make!
