Ego System

For most of the year I’ve been toying with the idea of updating this blog. I’ve thought about changing the name, changing the perspective, changing the format. Many ideas have popped into my head, but none that clicked, none that made me feel this one is “it.”

I’ve vacillated between reading up on how to do it and paying for a class to teach me how to do it. Whether to take a blogging class from a blogger or at my local college. I’ve collected articles telling me how to increase traffic and interest in the blog. They are lined up in my inbox waiting to be read. Maybe I should just make myself pick up one of the two ‘blogging for dummies’ books that sit next to my desk and study them. A little more thoroughly.

One of the changes I considered was adding an “About Me” page. At first it sounded like a reasonable thing to do, but then I thought, isn’t that redundant? I mean, isn’t this whole blog an extended about me page? Granted a dynamic one versus a static one.

Ultimately I decided that until I had a firm idea of where I wanted to go with it, there was no sense in starting that journey. I set up this blog as a place to share and a place to connect from. It started out as an RA outreach platform, but I want it to be more than that. For we are more than our ailments.

I appreciate all my readers, all who stop by. And instead of reading up so much on blogging itself, I think I will spend more time reading and connecting with my blogging companions. I can learn more that way.
