Just a quick feedback post on re-launching my blog after a year away and the various plans outlined recently in my Sprucing things up post.
- Creating fresh content
Creating fresh content also forces you to confront content which is frankly not fresh. I have therefore deleted the Reviews tab as an old review is about as relevant for gear buyers as an old newspaper is for news. I will still write reviews but I will write them as posts which disappear into the archives after a while. With some regret I have also done away with a couple of geographical sections on my blog to focus on areas which I know more about. This is not an indication that I love them any less than I did, but an acknowledgement that there are very good blogs out there which cover these areas. Regarding producing new content there are more walks in the pipeline
- Refreshing all the content and some of the pictures on my blog
I have been gradually working through all my blog posts editing both the text and pictures in the interests of accuracy and appearance. I hope this will bring about an overall improvement in the relevance and interest of the content.
- Giving more opportunities for feedback
I am generally happy to get constructive feedback or suggestions which will be beneficial to my readers. I normally respond promptly to comments and messages when I’m at home. Your comments have always helped shape my future plans and decisions
- Improving my existing and forthcoming videos.
This is a big project as I have over 80 videos on YouTube, but I am enhancing the thumbnails, descriptions, tags and in some cases re-uploading the poorer quality videos. I have also started using a better camera and improved software which can only be an improvement. (Cont)
- Re-evaluating Social Media profiles
After consulting followers, the consensus seemed to be that I should deactivate AudioBoom and Google + which I have now done. As a result I am now a much leaner machine.
Thanks for reading, viewing and following. Rose
