Why did you start you blog? Is that will why you blog, or has your site gone in a different direction than you’d planned?
I have a veteran blog named Blognovic’s weblog about world news with comments and news in English. But the world is a complicated place these days with a lot of bad and depressing news and I decided to open a new one in Spanish to post only good news and enjoy. The problem was that I couldn’t find a single one in a month and I get discouraged. I thought about closing the blog.
Then I discovered the Daily Prompt and began to take part. I have another blog, “From five to fifty”, more private, in which I post now and then some of my memories. Because of the variety of the topics I couldn’t use blognovic or From five to fifty to post about the prompts, so the natural place was this blog, then named in Spanish: “Vivir, que no es poco”.
Because I’m posting in English, recently I decided to change the title from “Vivir que no es poco” to “Life is Great”. I don’t know if it was a good decision or not, but I noticed there were people coming to my blog expecting something in Spanish to find all in English. I was trying to avoid that kind of problems. I would like to know your opinion.
This blog is now open to a variety of topics and is always a challenge to me. And best of all, I’m enjoying every day with it. I like being in contact with other bloggers around the world, all writing about the same topic, exchanging ideas from different points of view. I didn’t expect that when I opened my younger blog earlier this year, certainly not when I was thinking it was a failure and was going to close it. A wonderful surprise to me.
