At my previous job, one of my projects was teaching a public computer class on blogging. (It was part of a new series of computer classes on Web 2.0 being offered at that public library.) During that class, I told my students that one way to build an audience for your blog was to be sure to update it on a regular basis.
Clearly I need to listen to my own advice.
So I’ve been brainstorming new directions for this blog that will hopefully make it more worth reading. I’m going to start by posting on a wider range of topics. I originally imagined this as a manga and anime focused blog, but I’ve actually been reading much less manga and watching less anime lately. My love of them hasn’t wavered, but I haven’t been adding many new series to my to-read list. I’m planning to post at least a couple times a week from here on out now that I have a more general “pop culture + libraries” focus.
Finally, I’ve given the blog a new look and feel. Copyblogger has served me well, but I’ve moved on to Gridline Lite. I think I’ve caught and fixed any glitches caused by the theme switch, but let me know if that’s not the case.
