Technically, I’m late. It’s summer. But still, better late than never, and besides, being a few months late is just so very Mexico. But every now and again I think about my blog, why I’m blogging, what sort of stuff and nonsense I post and how I could improve it. And so I change things around a little. A new header image for one. Just a little bolder.
I’ve also gotten rid of the Diigo widget in the sidebar. I used to use Diigo to bookmark and share Mexico related blog or news posts. But it was kinda complicated. I had to open the post from Google Reader into a new tab, click the Diigo bookmarklet, choose a Category and blah blah blah. The process induced laziness, so it had to go.
In its place is my Google Shared Items feed, which I had been using over on my 3six5 blog to share photo related stuff. Now I’ll use it to share photo and Mexico related stuff. Gone also, sadly, is the World Cup widget….the tournament might not have ended yet, but with Mexico and Englands departures, inspiration for footy related content has disappeared! Upset? Probably not. But I do have a specific blog for my footy thoughts which you can read by clicking here. It’s mostly a link blog, importing my footy related Tweets from Twitter. But I write stuff too sometimes.
But the main change is the content. I imported all my non project (365, Faces and Bicentenario) posts into this blog. This is already largely a photo blog, and I’m going to expand on that idea. All my posts will come with a photo, video or image I have created, with the story behind it. In addition all my photography related posts will appear here – stuff about cameras, Flickr etc etc. Which won’t be much stuff, but still. My 3six5 blog continues though, with a new header of its own, but I’m going to use it for the original purpose I created it for – as a gallery for my photo projects.
