Blogging for….

I’ve had a bit of a crisis of confidence when it comes to blogging recently

When i moved away from WordPress to my own hosted blog i was really excited but for some reason my enthusiasm has worn off

One of the reasons i think is that I’ve gone back to lonely feeling you get when you first start blogging

When i first created my wordpress account i knew full well no-one would be reading and i was effectively talking to myself

Over time as other blogs linked to me and i wrote a couple of posts that people found via Google searches people left comments and all was good

I knew when i moved to my own domain I’d pretty much be starting again but for a while i really did feel like i was talking to an empty room

When Microsoft release a new product sometimes people say their biggest competition is their previous version (XP vs Vista for example)

In some ways I’ve had this

My old blog gets more comments and views then this blog

If you do this Google search my old blog appears fourth in the list

I’ve spent most of my time recently figuring out running the blog than actually posting stuff. Then i did start writing posts i started and then ended up trashing the posts as i didn’t feel they were very good

So what’s my point here?

I don’t have one really.

Your probably thinking “stop’s just a blog”

It’s a valid point but this was something i needed to get off my chest

In my last post on the old blog i said i was going to leave the blog in place for archival purposes but I’m considering deleting it. I don’t think the fact I’ve duplicated the content has helped on a Google search perspective (I’ve learnt more about sitemaps and the like recently more than I’d care!)

Right…I’ll stop the self pitying and get on with it!
