What To Do With This Blog...

Wednesday, August 11, 2010 , Posted by JD at 4:08 PM

I mentioned casually that I was planning to shut down HappyAboutThis and got all sorts of hate mail and hate tweets. I was so flattered. I haven't even been blogging a year so it's nice to know that people enjoy my writing.

They say that a year is a turning point in a blog, in fact, Necole Bitchie kindly told me that as her little gem of advice to someone who was just starting out. I bought the domain for HaT in October of last year and I think that in the last two months I was finding a voice and a stride.

Unfortunately, I have another blog called MediaSTRUT where I analyze how the media treats people and issues. I think I did a lot of that on HaT by default because that's my area of expertise. Though HaT is supposed to be a personal blog. I'm not even sure what that means anymore. And I don't know why someone like me who hates talking about herself would endeavor to start a personal damn blog. WHOOPS.

So...what I'm going to do is keep HaT alive and well until her anniversary comes and then I'll make a decision about whether to shut the blog down and do guests posts when I have something I can't put on media strut (such as the post on "Why You should Encourage Your Little Girl to Play Sports" post I did on The Beautiful Struggler, or whether to keep this blog open even though it won't be consistent.

Hmmm...I have to say I really love my very small group of readers and commenters. It's safe over here. Not so much on other blogs. *shudders*

Feel free to weigh in.

    Welp, I'm gonna check out your other site before I really weigh in on what you should do. I will say that I recently decided to incorporate everything that is me into one website, and it's going okay so far. The content is constant and variable, so that's pretty fun for me.
