I have posted 101 blogs since I began, rather hesitantly, back in 2016 and, my goodness, was that a steep learning curve. I see that I have covered a lot of subjects – from the frazzled: Dejunking One’s Life: The Cupboard of Doom; and the slightly bonkers: Napoleon’s Toothbrush; to literary criticism: Is Mr Rochester really a Woman in Disguise?; to travels abroad: The Park of Monsters (Italy); and visits to interesting places in and around London: A Visit to Kensal Green Cemetery. There are posts on Jane Austen’s novels: Jane Austen: The Power of Money; and visits to Art Exhibitions: Celebrating Artemisia Gentileschi; as well as posts on simple pleasures: The Rose Beetle (as seen by Gerald Durrell in Corfu, and me in Albania), and: I Love Cambridge Market.
Easter daffodils in my garden
However, try as I might, I can’t see a connection between them – except that they are all subjects that interest me. My top three posts until December 31st 2017 were: Jane Austen and the Missing Grandparents, The Case of the Shocking Red Dress and The Whitechapel Benn Foundry. You see my problem. Should I narrow my focus and concentrate on one subject? I honestly don’t know.
Solitary Easter tulip in my garden
And, at the moment, I can’t work out why The Rose Beetle and Shoe Heaven get lots of hits, and others, which I thought might interest people, don’t get so many. So this week I am taking a break and I’m trying to work out which direction I ought to be going in. Does it matter that I like History, and travel, and clothes, and gardens, and reading, and music, and Art, and talking to people, and want to blog about them? I need some thinking time.
I wish you all a very Happy Easter and I shall return next week.
