Preparing for an All-New Blog! October 26, 2006Posted by LearningNerd in Personal.
Guess what I did today? I registered a domain name! Yes, folks, learningnerd.com is now mine! I always figured I’d use my own domain eventually, so why not now?
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my goals for this blog and whatever future projects I may delve into, and I’ve come to the conclusion that my current setup just won’t cut it. Using one blog to cover every topic that exists is just plain impractical; it’ll only become more and more difficult to keep organized! The many unrelated topics won’t help my search engine rankings, either.
The more I think about it, the more I’m convinced that I should just hop on the niche-blog bandwagon. But that doesn’t mean I can’t blog about all of my many interests — no, far from it! Here’s what I’m thinking: one niche blog for every project. Why didn’t I just do that before? Well, I considered it, but I wasn’t ready to start a few blogs at once. Now that I’m more comfortable with the whole blogging thing, I’m ready to get serious.
So, while I figure out how I’m going to set up the new site, I’ll be blogging about the process here. Unfortunately, I’ll probably have to put my other projects on hold. That’s OK, though! To be honest, I’m not happy with the way I’ve been learning everything so far. Instead of starting with the very basics and working my way up, I’m thinking I should just start at the top and learn stuff as I go along. It’ll keep things interesting.
But more on all of this later. I feel like rambling, so I’m going to force myself to wait until I can sort through my thoughts and explain them coherently — probably tomorrow.
