I feel a change coming on...



...with this blog I mean. I'm not quite sure just what's going to change, though. I know some people have trouble with Blogger comments, and I'd like to fix whatever that problem is. I see my friend WC has converted to a WordPress format and I must say it looks pretty spiffy. Along the way, I've enjoyed changing up the look of this place from time to time, so maybe I'll try a new format or a new host. We'll see.

A while ago, I had an idea of turning my blog into a neighbourhood with a number of posters, but that didn't really spark the way I had hoped. Maybe one day I'll try that again, when the time is right (whatever that means).

I'm thinking about doing more writing here, but it isn't clear in my imagination yet just what I mean by that. I've often thought about my blog as being similar to a painting or a piece of music. It has texture, rhythm or cadence, colour, it can have narrative or not, be fact or fiction. Over the years, it seems to have developed a feel I'm comfortable with. Maybe I don't want it to be quite so comfortable. I've even considered changing the name of the joint. Har!

Anyway, before I go and mess with things, let me know if you have any requests (yes I know you want more accordion videos, stop asking), complaints, suggestions and so on. I'm not promising I'll listen to you, but then again I just might.

I've just put a post up about my pros/cons with WP so far!

Sounds like you have some fun ideas up your sleeve Mr.A. It would be interesting to find out from folks who made a change andhow the blogging changed after a year..do you lose the stats you have now? Do past visitors update their links and still visit etc?

I'm not worried about the stats. Ultimately they just don't matter. If I make a change I'll contact the core group of readers about links and let everyone else work it out for themselves. If people want to find me they will.

I have some ideas cooking. May spend some time on it tomorrow.

Don't change your name! It's a keeper.

Har! We'll see, Bloggerboy. The character mister anchovy will not change....the name of the blog might. I'm still kicking it around in my little brain.
