I’ve been forced to re-consider my multi-platform blogging strategy! When I was working it was right to try and separate work and personal issues; I still firmly believe that context in blogging is of the highest importance. You believe you’re writing for a specific audience – they do not want to be distracted by what will seem to them obscure references to photography or holidays, if they’ve been drawn to a blog post on technology; they don’t want to really know about your family, or perhaps they might – if they are part of your family … and so on!
The updated, re-launched blog tries to take account of this by having a ‘sticky’ post at the top of the front page – this post for instance – with all the other posts below and also being accessible from the pull-down menus above the graphic. These make use of ‘categories’ – so each post is allocated a category. Posts can also be accessed using the ‘tag cloud’ (in the sidebar), or from the list of ‘recent posts’. If you think this works, or doesn’t, please let me know. Thanks.
