It seems like I've gone off somewhere, like I've forgotten all about you, my blog reading friends. But I haven't, I promise. Quite the opposite. For the last few weeks, I've actually been pouring hours and hours (and hours!!) into a total blog overhaul.
I'm changing it all up.
I'm sprucing the format, looking at the design, clarifying topics, brainstorming big big big projects... All kinds of stuff.
High fives all around.
Yesterday I listened to a podcast directed at bloggers, and the speaker said something like:
Don't tell your readers you are making big changes! Don't say that you're excited. Because then, if you change it all up and they don't like it, they'll be all disappointed and stuff. Don't set yourself up like that.
So... I was going to tell you how psyched I am. (Do people still say psyched?) I was going to let you know that I'm throwing everything I've got at this new redesign, and that I think it will be worth the wait. That I feel more energized about blogging than I ever, ever have. And that you can tell all your writing friends about it, because I really think it will be that much fun, and that exciting, and that good.
But... the really smart blogging man said, don't do that.
So I won't say anything.
I'll just inch off this stage with a HUGE GRIN on my face, and let you draw your own conclusions.
PS: It all gets real on March 1. I'll be brainstorming like the madwoman that I am until then.
