I’ve got a few updates that I wanted to bring to your attention!
First, the Search bar at the top right of the page is now in working order! It currently uses Google search to find information on the blog and, although it looks a bit funky for now, I think it will improve searching by 1000 percent (=extremely accurate). I’m really excited because I think the “findability” of blog content will be increased a ton!
Second, I organized the Reviews page! All my book reviews are now sorted alphabetically by title. I personally think this makes a lot more sense than how I had it before (sorted by month I reviewed the book). I hope to add a “top books” sub-page to the Reviews section sometime month, as well!
The last bit of news is more personal. I always struggle with how much of my life to share on the blog- mainly because this blog is about a very specific topic.
Mentioning too many unrelated things seems like it would detract from my overall blog concept. Plus, some experienced bloggers have said that if you want to talk about your private life, you should make a separate blog about that.
Although I see their point, I always love finding out about my blogger friends’ lives behind the scenes! It makes me feel they’re a real person instead of some nameless review machine.
As my little bit of news is related to blogging, I thought I’d go ahead and take the plunge. I recently changed jobs, and today marks my first day at my new company! (Don’t worry, I pre-write and schedule my posts, which means I’m not blogging from work!).
I’m beyond excited about this new opportunity because…it involves blogging! I’m going to be contributing to a corporate travel blog and will be working to write and edit articles.
I’m anxious to get started and begin growing even more as a writer and a blogger. I also can’t wait to share my knowledge here with you guys too!
Do you struggle with sharing too much about yourself on your blog? If you have a book blog, how much do you write about your personal life?
