Abstract Photo And Some News
First of all, above you can see an abstract photo that I shot a while ago, I basically shot a photo of LED lights. I uploaded already a similar one when I remember right, I do at least have several photos of the same scene that I didn’t upload yet. But now to the news…
Today I did import around 35 posts and 6 drafts from my second blog, the pure tech niche blog. Some of you know how I did struggle with two blogs, there are several posts about the whole issue on my blog. I gave the second blog another chance over the recent months, but how often I did that, and the result was always the same, I prefer one blog over two.
This is basically why I decided today, to hell with the second blog and then I imported all the technology or gaming related articles and guides to my main blog, the one you are reading right now. It’s the second and hopefully last time I published on the other blog to export it later to my main blog. If it doesn’t excite me a second time, it won’t a third time.
I published hundreds of gaming or technology articles here, that was always good, that’s what I want to do in the future again, I want to be able to write about just anything that comes to my mind. The technology articles always generated 98% of my several thousand page views per month, I am not sure why I wanted to try something in the same niche.
So, this is basically the news, I killed my niche blog a second time, all the content that I wrote for the other blog, all that is now hosted on my main blog again. Two blogs did really prevent me to publish things, especially because both blogs had a technology category. That means I always had to decide where to publish my tech related articles in the future.
Next thing is, I am very tired of my “diary” domain, I lately thought about it if I should rebrand. I think “diary” does sound either too playful or too childish, the “of” makes it just longer, and my name doesn’t add anything meaningful to the domain, it’s enough if you see my author name and bio below each post. I would like to get rid of the domain but…
To rebrand or not to rebrand, that is the question I need to think about. My domain gained a lot of authority and has good metrics, everything must be considered. Purchasing a better domain and doing a 301 redirect, that could be the solution but it’s still risky, I have to think about it. I think most of the domain power will carry over, but not 100%, that’s it.
The only change now, is that I will publish everything, really everything here again. If I rebrand, that is not sure yet, but I’d like to do that by the end of the year or beginning of the next year. That wouldn’t change a lot for you, it’s just the name, I do currently write a lot of ideas down, it’s not concrete yet. Just wanted to tell you my latest ideas or thoughts.
