Because It's All About You

I’ve been doing some thinking lately about my blogs. What I’m thinking is that I have WAY too many.  There’s this one, which is the most personal and therefore, probably my favorite of all of them.  There’s the family blog that I keep to update family members that live far away and don’t read this one (pretty much duplicate content minus the personal stuff).  Then there’s my craft blog where I drone on and on about my knitting, other crafts, and crafters or tutorials I discover online.   And of course I have my recipe blog to post yummy recipes on (when I remember to do it).  Then there’s another one that is sort of in development that may or may not ever get off the ground.  Oh, and one other that would be a bit of an extension of the personal blog as well if I ever get it started up.

That’s kind of A LOT.  Well, at least it is when you find yourself having little to no time to keep up with them all.

It’s a bit of an addiction, this starting new blogs thing.  I have my reasons for keeping them all separate, mostly because I don’t want to bore people with content they don’t want to read.  Plus I want to keep my pages all pretty and the designs relevant to the content they contain and I can’t do that very easily if I mash it all up into one blog.

That said, I’m thinking of combining some things and I’m curious what people reading the blog would like to see here.  The recipe blog will always be separate, but I’m considering pulling the craft posts back into my personal blog.  The main reason for this is that my posts are so few and far between on both blogs these days that they are looking a little deserted.  By putting them together, it will increase my posting frequency here and I won’t feel the need to link to myself so much.

So, what do you want to see?  Do craft posts bore you to tears?  Do you like seeing my latest projects?  Do you just come here to see cute pictures of my kids?  Do you think my blog just sucks because my brain is fried and I never write anything worthwhile any more?  Seriously, I want to know.  Should I mix it up or just leave things the way they are?

  1. I’d put them together. At one time I had three going, too. Eventually one takes precedence, and the others go on the back burner. I’m not interested in crafts, so I’d probably just give those entries a quick look and move along. But that wouldn’t keep me from reading your blog.

    Go ahead and put them together if it will save time! I read other blogs and sometimes I’m not always interested in every single post. I just scroll through it and move on to wait for the next post. It would take a lot to drive me away anyways. 😉

  3. Combining can work to your advantage. You could choose a few days of the week to post crafts, different day or days to post recipes, and the rest? Fun personal posts.

  4. I will support your blog even more 🙂
    Yes I come for your kids’ photos, I come for your posts and if that includes crafts, I will come for them too!

  5. I don’t mind the crafts at all, and as far as that goes having the recipes on the blog too wouldn’t bore me either but make it easier for me to read it all in one stop!
    out of all the blogs i used to follow- yours is the only one left…
    Now you better feel special about that!!
