what should my blog focus be?

Friday, February 4, 2011

too many things to write about

i'm not sure if i should start doing separate blogs for different categories of posts, but so far my posts have been rather haphazard in topic. so far i've done music reviews, a short story, television reviews, funny photo posts, diary posts, things that annoy me in the world and a news post. as a follower, what would you like to see come out of this blog?

in all honesty, i thought this would be a great medium to promote music that i made, but i haven't been working on anything lately with my new equipment. expect to see that in the future after i move, regardless of what i decide to specify this url space to.

so i'm going to leave it up to a poll, something short and quick. it will give me a good idea on what to focus on, as all i want to do is please you. have you noticed yet that i've used commas in every sentence so far? yeah, what's that about?

new topics i could talk about this week: a more in-depth look at the roommate and her white rat dog that ruined my whole senior year at university, how awesome i think the uk series skins is, how unbelievably funny 30 rock, community and archer were last night, predictions for the super bowl, my plans to move (which are already happening as soon as someone hires me in the city), information about life you can take to heart, how i'm on the fence about blue valentine (it was just okay, imo), teaching my followers some nihongo, more obscure music that brings me joy, or funny videos in general (betting this will be most popular). video games are also an option, but there are a lot of those already.

poll is up top, don't forget to comment and follow!

as a follower the blogs I enjoy most are the ones that are random -- or not too strictly themed. like a blog about movies is cool, as long as it's not only about old western films. or about sports, as long as it's not all about a specific team. it's way too hard to relate/comment to those ones. so imo, just share whatever.

Alan said...

well too many things to write about is better than few things

Nemesis said...

I tend to combine my mind into one blog

Cpt Trips said...

It's your blog and you're free to put whatever content you like on it. People can take it or leave.

Yuri Testikov said...

Cool blog man, I am going to start following.

@tadpole; Keeping variation in your blog is always good. Of course since I only blog about WoW, finding variations within this subject can be a little tough.

All in all, good read, and keep it up!

MixedNuts said...

If you can make a bunch of posts with that specific category sure why not?

Gaf said...

whatever you enjoy writing about, If your happy with it I am :D

Sharia said...

i feel you man

Body1 said...

Hello I like your idea successful man

Dilgaf said...

speaking your mind is the greatest thing you can do

Justin Bieber Fanclub said...

In my opinion, a blog with different topics, is more enjoyable for the writer and the reader.

DEZMOND said...

I vote for tv and movie reviews as expected from me :)

radness4life said...

write what you wanna write

Ian Begley said...

Try to find a topic that no one has talked about before.

Arcita said...

yeah i was thinking about this as well. i decided to just continue to be random

anoodle said...

Post them all in one place.

Vapor said...

I vote lifehacks or boobs.

Snickelsox said...

Just talk like you have been, I for one enjoy your random rants.

DesoWave said...

If I were you I'd make a blog entirely about music (I'm a hardcore musical listener) and a blog about everything (this). Or at least that's what I've done.

Bassislv said...

separate it in other blogs bro, will be better

HéxXxèN said...

i like what you do, keep going bro!!

Chris said...

Break them up into topics.

The Shred Sho said...

I think a random blog is definitely the way to go.

temptation said...

yeah. i think the main point is that you are satisfiedy with writing the blog and that you have fun. we have fun reading anyway :)

roextt said...

I like it the way it is, it has variety

AugustineOfRhino said...

Archer rules, love that show. You should share your music and throw in stories about what inspired you to make each song.

trippinkets said...

write w.e you want to man

G said...

Personally I love random blogs that have that personal touch

Isaac said...

PLEASE do not do separate blogs, it's annoying

SoreLosersGaming said...

You can never have too many things to talk about! I suffer too much from having nothing to blog about T_T

Anonymouse said...

nothing wrong with switching topics every day...make mondays about video games, tuesdays something personal, wed could be for weeaboos, or just mix it up based on how your day goes. no need to stick to a schedule or even one post a day, seperate topics into different posts and go off at random.

Master Maniacal said...

TV/Movie reviews I guess... but I kinda like your short stories whether they are real or not. -Supported by, Maniacal

PectoralFinnn said...

Don't limit your blog to one topic, I enjoy reading blogs about all different topics. I'm sure whatever your posts are about will be interesting, so I look forward to them.

gekomaster said...

tangerine nectarine lemons said...

I like how most people put "boobs" in your poll.

beyondthisall said...

Keep it up dude

Qik Tech said...

I'm looking forward to reviews :) followed.

Niko said...

It is hard to find your niche, but I guess you gotta keep writing until it gets to you.

Voted for sports. LOL I think I'm the only one too.

Dwrek said...

The white dog rat. Every mans worst nightmare.

GADAFINY said...

write what you wanna write

my day in a sentence said...

You know, you don't need to make a seperate blog. Why not just tag it?

Also, voted for vital information for your everyday life, but more music would be my second vote.

meandmythinkingcap said...

having too blogs doesnt help I beleive. You can use 1 blog as potpourri and by that way ur followers can also keep track o versatile entries:)

Aaron The Baron said...

just keep one blog. what i've found is that people lose interest when you have more than one blog, unless you're updating both each day. but you're lucky... I run out of shit to talk about lol, so its usually a challenge to come up with something for my daily posts

Wise One said...

keep on keeping on

martbrink said...

Be what you want to be, not what everyone else want you to be. I would rather read blogs that are personal and describing the person behind it as watching Internet Videos or looking at pictures. Maybe you could combine these two things.

Banacek said...

I kind of like the randomness of your posts. It keeps things interesting.

1 million things that make me rage said...

since in my mind there is only hatred i combine hatred with hatred

Lycade said...

You should try League of Legends out, still. it is free to play, so there isn't a reason why you can't try it out for yourself. ;)

James said...

Anything you want bud!

Leaf said...

Do what you want it's your blog man

Anon Reader said...

I'm from the UK - love the first two series of skins - I'll listen to people talking about that all day long man. Consider that my vote.

Mr. Insanium said...

Bewbs are always fun dude

Check by my blog for a nerdy giveaway and a freaky artist

Toto said...

nice blog dude!

Anon Reader said...

I've only seen the first episode of the US series and I was let down by the lack of imagination if I'm honest, I think they could do a better job of tailoring the show to an American audience. Also, the UK version goes downhill in my opinion after the 2nd series - but I'll leave you to make up your own mind! Have you ever heard of 'Shameless'?

Jamie said...

I quite enjoy reading funny stories of people's lives. So, your past probably.

Screaming Hawk said...

Alot of people just wanting bewbs... Why am I so suprised?
lol

Heatherrr said...

Heatherrr said...

Araita said...

A bit of everything is always fun!

Anon Reader said...

Didn't even know there was a US version of Shameless haha, and have you ever seen Firefly? Thats all the proof I need of originality at your end... although it isn't that recent haha.

More Ducks said...

Do what you want.

Mr. Bloggity said...

Rawr said...

nice post, keep it up

Bdgorsh said...

It isn't possible to please everyone, so you should choose yourself, what you want to write about.

thenitefalls said...

Just make posts that you enjoy and don't worry about it :). I voted!

Brut said...

Keep writing man, we appreciate it

Rabidmoose said...

I'm completely fine with a random topic blog, just write about whatever you feel like and I'm sure it will be interesting.

Daniel Healy said...

keep one blog with different tags for different topics, that would be the best way in my opinion

phil said...

don't be afraid to go 'off topic' for a few days or even weeks....if you're reading a book or have watched a movie, write about it, if you've had an argument with someone, write about that..easy lol

Benny Lava said...

I always enjoy reading your posts man

Phanny said...

"a more in-depth look at the roommate and her white rat dog that ruined my whole senior year at university" lol

CrazyJuan said...

I took a departure from my usual topics today as well. Just write what ever you feel. =]

CrazyJuan said...

Topic changes are fine, I did it today and it was refreshing. Good luck.

Dilgaf said...

lets your mind go free and write about whatever comes to you

anontcotrol said...

nice post dude

Coilis said...

Its easier to make each post have a label since they can be reused and easier to sort them out.

Hans Krüger said...

Yeah, a little diversity is always welcome, i like if I don't know what to expect and be surprised, although of course that leads to disappointment sometimes. But that's life! Only thing I personally would not want to see is a blog about video games. But if it's not first person shooters or role playing games, it might be okay, too. I always preferred adventure games.

Tsipise said...

I'm OK with everything, really. But plz no vids of 40 minutes. I don't watch them.

CanuckNation said...

"...have you noticed yet that i've used commas in every sentence so far?..."

Except for that one! :D

Maybe you should focus on the "lighter" side of news? i.e. more humourous things, etc. :)

Dania said...

skins is the best! cant wait for more episodes. following.

Forrest Stump said...

If u have time to write in several blogs then do it, if not continue writing in only one.

bill said...

Beau Thompson said...

Definitely more funny.
