Wednesdays are a good day to curl up and consider my blog world. I have been purging my home interiors, ridding myself of much of the book hoard….and someone posed the question of taking a look at my numerous blogs. Just a thought. Thanks, Patty, @Books, Thoughts, & a Few Adventures...LOL.
The fun I had with my HUGE number of blogs has diminished over time, although I don’t think I will ever have just one. I do like my eclectic, quirky sites. But I could examine a few of them.
So that’s what I did.
After Bloggiesta finished, I especially zeroed in on my one remaining Blogger site, and an e-mail from Amazon Associates about major changes in widgets, links, etc., propelled me forward. My only reason for remaining in that site was the advantage of those widgets. So…without too much thought, but after examining my posts and changing links to any reviews on that site (there were only two!), I deleted it.
Yes, Story Corner went bye-bye earlier this week. Even though it was my first blog. And there was a little tug of sentimentality, but most of what I wrote there could easily be created elsewhere.
Next I took another look at my ten remaining sites, all on Word Press. No, Chocolate & Mimosas is still a lot of fun, even though I don’t post there very often. Snow Chronicles, my writing journal, is still functional.
So that left…Going out on a Limb. Yes, I loved it for a while. And when I pulled up the book review category, there were LOTS of reviews posted there. Pages, in fact. What to do? Well, the only site that linked to them was this blog, Curl up and Read, and the reviews were all in 2010-2013. So my ruthless decision? Delete those pages on this blog, and keep only 2014-2015. Everything I review is on Goodreads, anyway.
Done! Now I need one of these, as a reward for the hard work: LOL
I will be going to lunch with a friend later, and then we’re going to see the movie I’ll See You In My Dreams, with Blythe Danner, et. al.
So that’s how my day is going so far….lots of grunt work, followed by a lovely reward. What are you up to on this Hump Day?
