The Armchair BEA team says: What do you think about when you think about going beyond blogging or expanding your horizons? Is it a redesign of your blog? Have you branched out into freelance writing or even published a novel of your very own? Or, have you moved into a different venue like podcasts or vlogging? This is the day to tell us about how you have expanded on blogging in your own unique way.
Expanding my blogging horizons has very little to do with my blog.
Instead, when I’m expanding… I’m really looking at all the other blogs out there. I’m looking for new blogs to follow. I’m looking for bloggers I can connect with. I’m trying to find my place in all this. I’m trying to find my people.
It can be really frustrating. It’s not hard to find new blogs – there are more and more every day – but it’s hard to find the ones I truly connect with. And it would be easy to get comfortable and just stick to the blogs I already know and love, but I don’t want to do that either. I want to expand my horizons. That’s why I take part in events like Armchair BEA.
The last time I wrote about this, I had a great idea…
Everyone blogs differently – as we all should – but sometimes I wish there was a quick and easy way to filter through the ones that just don’t interest me. Like eHarmony, but for book blogs. Fill out a questionnaire, send it off into the internet, and wait for my results. “Here are your most compatible fellow bloggers. Enjoy your long and lasting friendships.” Ah, if only…
Based on the comments I got, I’m not the only one who’s overwhelmed. But, until my idea is implemented, I guess I’ll just keep expanding the old-fashioned way.
