Some changes around here

My hiatus from blogging made me think what I want to do with this blog.

At first this blog was created for me to have a voice when I felt nobody would really listen to my ramblings. But right now I feel rather okay about this, so I don't need my blog as an outlet anymore. I also have much less frustration and aggression in me (most days), so I don't need to rant as much. Rants usually just pass through my head once and either make it out of my mouth quickly or never make any appearance. This is good. But this blog needs to change accordingly.

I still want to blog, because I massively enjoy reading blogs and I like blogging. Just recently I read a post about optimizing your blog for search machines and how to earn money with it. But I don't want to earn money with blogging. It's not just that I don't need it (my job pays well), it's also that I don't want to spoil my blog with such interests. My blog should be about enjoyment and not really anything more. If people read and comment, even better!

Since rants are pretty much out I want to change the topics of this blog. From now on there's gonna be labels and new topics. For example I want to post about travels, too. I've been to some really nice places and want to show all of you. Also I want to post more pictures to liven things up.
Maybe I'll do some how-to posts about Germany. There are some things I encountered with Akane or other friends from abroad that made me think "There should be an easy explanation of this online, because otherwise how are these people supposed to know." So I might as well just do that.
There are more things I want to write about shared flats and moving. I have ideas, just need to write them down.

Actually, I look forward to these new times a lot! Looking forward to blogging is great!

  1. Yeah! Someone else coming out of blog hibernation! I let blogging slide for almost a year just because FB was easier but I miss the clean lines and un-advertising invaded space of my blog.

    I love reading blogs too and am excited to hear you're coming back to it.

    I know nothing about Germany and would love to hear more about life there. :)

    1. I was so glad when you came back! But my comment was eaten by blogger, I guess. ^^ It's great to have you posting again! I really enjoy your blog as is provides me with a glimpse of a life so very different from mine. :-)

    1. I'm glad you visit my blog from time to time as I very much enjoy yours!
      Sometimes a corner view title strikes me and then I'll participate. But I could never participate every time. :-)

  4. Glad to see you are getting into blogging more. My blog is a hodgepodge of rants, travel, musings and all sorts of other happenings in my life. More of an online journal that is not private I feel.

    And I will never monetize my blog. I have seen several bloggers monetize and add ads but I am content with just having people come by and read my posts. People connecting and leaving comments means more to me than money does because it means I actually interact with others instead of just laying in wait for someone to click and cha-ching make cash. I got your letter by the way, I love it and thanks. :)

    1. Right now real life is keeping me from blogging and that's bad, because soon I will loose regular access to the internet. I'm gonna move, aaah!
      Yes, connecting with people, maybe even finding new friends, that's the best about blogging.
      Great you got the letter and like it! :-)
