Blogging in Parallel
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

I've heard that on average every seven years the cells in your body are completely replaced by new ones. That's probably not true, but it's interesting to muse on.

I've been blogging on JournalScape for about seven years now. My readership has grown incrementally during that time, but according to Google Analytics, I still only get 20-40 unique visits a day, which ain't a whole lot.

So I've been thinking about switching to a new site, with a new look...basically starting over. I haven't completely made my mind up, though. There are some things I obviously like about JournalScape.

I like the way it lists the titles of blog posts for an entire month, though I'd guess that some people would like to immediately begin reading a blog post without clicking a link. I like that it's simple and easy to use. Kenny is a great administrator and has been very helpful every time I've asked him about something.

But I'm feeling a little restless. So, I started a blog in parallel, over at Blogger. It's called Thinking as a Profession.

There are a few things I like about Blogger, most having to do with search. First of all, Blogger is now owned (like every other internet company) by Google. So a Blogger blog will probably be indexed higher on Google and Google Blogs than JournalScape pages, in general. Secondly, the blog contents are searchable, which is something I really need. Often I'm looking for an old post, and sometimes I can't find it. Even when I do, it takes forever. I also like the fact that Blogger as an import/export feature for blog content, so that I can easily backup or move content.

What I'm going to do is cross-post for a few weeks, and play around with the Blogger blog and see how I like it. If I feel like it's a significantly better blogging experience, then I'll probably jump ship. If not, I'll continue to blog here.

Either way, I'll keep you posted on what I end up doing.
