You’ll probably notice some changes with the blog in the next few months. On my quest to get 3,000 posts, I am going through and beefing up some of the content on this blog. This includes adding words to posts, cutlines to photos and replacing entire posts if those links do not work. Some stories will include small updates or my commentaries from my perspective on the event. I’ll also be adding perspective to the different inspirational pictures I post. That doesn’t mean there will be less posts, but they won’t appear as frequently as before.
I’ll also be adding or deleting static elements from the page, such as the fantasy football team or Pokemon pages.
This is a process that might hinder my goal to get to 3,000 posts before January, but I’m looking forward to the challenge. 3,000 posts isn’t much, especially when you’ve had a blog for over four years, but I think the more effort I put into this, the more people will receive it. If not, at least I can point to this blog and say I put in the effort.
Since yesterday I’ve added to or replaced several posts from 2013 and 2014 – which includes many of my adventures in Wolf Point, Montana. This has given me the opportunity to reflect on the different events from Wolf Point and see how far I’ve come as a writer, journalist and photographer – and when I say that I have come a long way since those days is a bit of an understatement.
By doing this, hopefully I can figure out what exactly I want to do with the website, whether it’s continuing it as an outlet to spew the stuff that’s on my brain, turn it into something that I can monetize or a combination of the two. It will probably continue to be a casual outlet because I want to shine at my job at the Ritzville Journal.
This is also a way for me to put in more work for a project. Too often I’ll start several projects and not put in as much effort to make them shine and they sit at the side. This is a chance for me to put more of me out there.
I almost forgot, have a great day.
