It’s been a few months now since I started the Magical Childhood blog and I’m wondering a few things.
For one, I wonder if anybody ever reads it! :) I get a few comments but Live Journal works very hard at keeping me from putting up a counter (I apparently need to put one in a "layer" and it warns me that I had better know code if I go there) so I have no way of knowing if anybody really wanders in at all.
For another, I wonder if I should move it to another site. I picked Live Journal because I had a personal blog on blogger and didn’t want the two all lumped together. Also, I liked the idea of over 300 templates to switch through for the blog here! I’m a visual person and it just appealed to me! :)
But frankly, LJ is a pain. The comments are labeled anonymous unless you’re a LJ member, it won’t let me put up a counter or other simple applications and it’s sort of out in the boonies of the internet. Plus, people have complained numerous times that they just don’t like it!
So I’m wondering… should I pack up and move to greener pastures? Will I be able to import things from here to there, and does it matter? I snatched up a suitable name on blogger, just in case (and they won’t even tell me magical-childhood is too long and make it something silly like magical mama!).
Should I keep blogging at all? I always loved putting out the newsletters because mamas would write back and share ideas or yap with me, but here I feel a bit like I’m talking to the mirror. There are so many wonderful crafting and parenting blogs out there these days. Maybe I should just update the web site weekly or go in a new direction. Maybe I should call it a day and go sip iced tea on the lawn swing.
What do you think, loyal reader (I don’t dare make it plural! I think one might be a stretch!)? Victoria came and read this over my shoulder and says I should absolutely not stop blogging. Ever, she says! I could just send her some emails and save a lot of trouble though.
I love to yap at you, but I don’t know if you’re really out there. I’m beginning to just feel a bit silly and sad! ;) If you are out there, please weigh in!
And happy Wednesday. 😉
