I’ve been half thinking about giving my blog a makeover. But there’s a big part of me that has come to see blogs as being like books that I like to return to and much of what appeals to me about much-loved books is the familiarity of their covers, the feel of their pages, their well-thumbedness.
But blogs aren’t exactly ‘books,’ are they? They are more works in progress and clearly they are used by some bloggers as a way to try to showcase their actual books.
So, the other extreme, blogs could be perceived as windows ~ or, that’s what I’ve come to think in recent times. I’m talking shop windows here and the whole business of window-dressing comes into play. If a blog is a like a shop window, then change could well be perceived as being important to keep a freshness and to draw people in.
How do you perceive blogs: favourite books, windows in need of dressing or …?
