You might be surprised at the new look of this blog today.
Yes, I’ve just put on the new WordPress theme. And that’s part of the renovation plan I am implementing for this blog. It’s been years since I tweaked this personal blog of mine and I think it’s time I did something about it.
And what are the other parts of the plan?
Well, I plan to simplify – reduce the number of – the categories of its content. I think I have too many of them here. Some categories have too few posts in them. They are too specific. I plan to delete some of these categories and let the posts be attached to the bigger categories.
Will this rearrangement of categories affect the blog’s ranking? Visibility? Search engines friendliness?
I don’t know. I am not a professional blogger in that sense. I just blog and write whatever I think I need to write and share with my audience. I believe that if they are useful and interesting, somebody will somehow find them there. I am just a voice among millions (billions?) of voices out there. I don’t need to be prominent if anything I say is not of any importance. Besides, this is a personal blog. I don’t think my blog should or would be more prominent than the real contribution I can make to the world. I just need to leave a trace of my existence – that I am here or was here when I die; that I am a feeling and thinking being; that, as a member of the human race, I care about others and the time and place I happen to live in.
Aaah … there you are the lofty and idealist part of me have begun to show off. I have to stop here. Otherwise I’ll go on rambling about inconsequential things.
Anyway, dear readers, if you have any suggestions about what I should or should not do in this renovation plan, please let me know. Thanks.
