Posts Tagged Blog One Year Anniversary
I’ve listened to your suggestions and I’ve decided to make a few changes to Morning Erection. Starting tomorrow I will be changing to a different theme. I’ve been told that I need to have a list of posts and categories to make finding older content easier for new and regular visitors.
So let it be written… so let it be done.
I need to use a theme that has a nice sized sidebar to house all of my categories. When I first started blogging I didn’t bother learning the difference between tags and categories and I have quite a few categories. When I look around at other blogs at most I’ve seen twenty or thirty. I have 498! Crazy I know.
Every time I find a theme I like I find something wrong with it. I chose Rubric but I hate the way the comment section looks. I like Rubric because it has the largest writing width of any other theme. I chose Enterprise because it’s the closest to the INove theme I’m using now, but still something about it I don’t like.
As of this minute I still haven’t decided yet, but you will see tomorrow because I’m committed to adding a sidebar. If I add a sidebar to the theme I’m using now, it makes the post area too small. All this is boring you, I know. I’m taking the advice of Jia and Rouge|Hero and try to show more posts. We’ll see what happens and thanks for sticking with me on this journey of mine!
The Guest blogger for October is Blaga Todorova from Scent Of My Heart. On October 2, 2010 be sure to come back and read what she has to say. I believe Blaga is the first person to volunteer to guest post for me. She is a great poet but her guest post is not just another poem. Blaga lets you in on a glimpse of herself and her poetry. If you have not been by her site after reading her poem posted on Poetic License, please do so now.
One Year Blog Anniversary: Making A Better Morning Erection
Of course I mean making a better morning erection blog. I started Morning Erection on September 28th, 2009 just to see if I could blog for a full year. Although I didn’t blog consistently for a few months because April was sick, I still made it a full year without calling it quits. I still have a six weeks but I want to pat myself on the back now.
I’m not much for writing and I find it hard to believe how many friends I’ve made and how many people stop by daily and leave comments. Thank you. I need to thank April for ‘knowing’ that I could accomplish this goal. I am very happy with the posts, the visitors, and the comments, however I am always wanting to make things better.
In the past I have tried to make my blog as interactive as I could. I asked questions, composed polls, and invited guest bloggers. If you would indulge me once more; I want to know what you think I could do to make Morning Erection a better blog (no, I’m not changing the name). I’ve already been asked to bring back guest blogging. I would love to, but I need people willing to blog.
I have stayed away from most controversial subjects like politics, religion, homosexuality, and abortion but do you really want to know what I think about social issues? I am very opinionated but I don’t like to offend. I am querying you, the visitors. Whether you visit frequently or if this is your first trip here; what do you like or dislike about Morning Erection?
One of my friends told me if it ain’t broke don’t fix it but she’s a ‘glass half empty’ type of person. I’m for improving where and when I can. Help me build a better blog so I can feel good about going into a second year. Thanks for all your support and help this past year.
I found a blogger who is kind enough to guest blog for the month of September. I was attracted to her site because of the poetry, but I cannot promise poetry will be a part of her post here. Her name is Cherlyn Cochrane and her site, Over A Cup Of Coffee. This is my first guest blogger since Kari Cheng in June. Please mark your calendar, September 4, 2010 and stop back to read her post. Also visit her site before her post. I like it a lot and so might you.
