Bringing down the walls
I have been segregating my two blogs. The gig is up and the wall is coming down.
I have two blogs
and my personal one
I wanted to keep them both completely separate. But, wordpress doesn’t allow it. While CoC is my primary blog, i only have one reader and I cannot separate who I follow on which profile. While technically one of my profiles follow you, in my reader it’s all the same. Yes, i have people who solely follow one of my blogs and not the other ( that’s more than okay!). And i use my Diet Riot Girl profile for almost all my following and commenting. So, when you see the list of followers its a big jumble of diet and cancer blogs with a few writing blogs and photography blogs thrown in( And i love each and everyone!) . I wanted CoC to be the “writing” blog and follow the cancer blogs and writing blogs with that profile and Diet Riot Girl to be just that, a diet/health/fitness blog and follow those type of blogs with that profile. But it’s all a big mess. Sometimes wordpress switches profiles on me and I comment on a blog with CoC while i followed it under Diet Riot. I know it may be confusing.
But, for now, it’s working. I love each and every follower and whichever name/profile you know me as you have a genuine follower out of me. But, i give up the hoax of trying to keep it all separate.
Truth be told, I wanted CoC for the liberalness. I wanted that blog, where i didn’t have to censor myself for younger readers or family members. I started blogging on that profile a long time ago and when the hubby became ill i wanted to use that blog to share that story but then i stopped blogging all together. Then i wanted to blog about random things and i didn’t want to verve from the Cancer topic so i just stopped blogging. Then i started my health thing so started a new blog for it.
My Diet Blog has been amazing. I seen it come alive with my small but dedicated following. It has been fabulous so far.
But now, writing again, I want to blog about random ramblings and I don’t have a place for it. A few random blogs started seeping through on CoC and now I’m so hesitant to post anything.. I want to post on my diet blog but feel it doesn’t exactly pertain to the theme.
I don’t know what to put what where. I don’t want to clutter one blog and yet I don’t want to ignore one either.
Recently, I’ve been thinking of creating yet a whole new blog. Start from scratch. Have the liberty to post about anything and everything. Completely letting ALL the walls down. But, the thing that would be different this time is I would not be linking it to my Facebook, or people i know in real life. You see weather it is my diet blog or corner of confessions there always is a little bit of holding back because I have family members on Facebook and i want to avoid the gossip train from starting.
It’s all so exhausting. That’s why i stopped blogging time and time again. Plus, i didn’t actually have actual followers and readers. Now , albeit it’s small, I do have a following and it’s completely warmed up my heart and allowed a chance for my passion for writing to peek out of its shell again.
But now, how do i keep it all organized. Obviously, the segregation has its limitation.
I was also thinking of just reformatting CoC. My Diet Blog has been going well. And I’ve been posting random bits on CoC.
I think, for now, I’m going to work on posting more diet/health stuff on my Diet Blog.
And just post everything else on CoC.
Does this work for you, my dear readers/followers?
And if I was to make a blog under a pseudonym name, will you follow it?
