I’m staring at the last year of posts on my blog and am seriously considering deleting a bunch of my older posts. For awhile they all seem directionless– like I had no idea what I wanted out of my blog– and then it all morphs into the novel I tried to write, finished, and now find published and available! From here on out I can see that I will be completely committed to blogging about fiction, which is what I always wanted to blog about anyway.
And yet I read all these epistle-type posts I wrote about thoughts and issues I was going through– journal style stuff that I’m not sure I really meant for anybody to read but I did it to build confidence in myself. Okay, confidence now intact, do those posts really hold any value to anyone besides me? Or do they come off as over-reflective. Truly, something that belongs in a lined notebook under my pillow.
I am not one born to write non-fiction. I know this for sure. And when it comes to advice, I am good at it one-on-one, situation-to-situation. So most of my advice columns are pointed directly at myself. Should I delete them all? Archive them? Suddenly I want to tidy up my little blog and get it down to business. I want to talk about tales of knights, I want this to be a place where I share little tidbits and not so much seriousness. Anybody with me? Or am I threatening to remove something that someone actually reads?
Really, I would appreciate some feedback. Thank you!
