Last night I had a bit of a eureka moment-it was only a bit because I've yet to discover the answer, but at the very least I now I have the direction. I'm not talking in riddles, I promise.
Last month I took the Decor8 'Blogging Your Way Bootcamp' course to help me whip this little blog into shape. It exposed all the areas that need work, forced me to ask serious questions about where I would like it to go and how I want it to look. I now have a list as long as my arm of things I want to adjust and change, but I could really use your help with this...
Question 1: Do I change the name?
When The Curiosity Project first began, it's sole purpose was as a platform to host my box swaps and to allow our little community to connect. Since then, it's become much more than that- it's evolved into a space to share my passion for home decor and independent designers and it'll soon become the place I share my journey in finding a new house and making it home. Somehow the name just doesn't work anymore-don't you think? So, should I change it to something that relates to its subject?
Question 2: Would you like a separate 'micro site' for the projects detached from the main site?
I'm considering building a micro site which you can easily access from the main blog, keeping the name 'The Curiosity Project' to keep it simple purely for box swaps and other online community related projects. I thought it would make it all a lot easier for those who would prefer to keep an eye on the projects but not the main part of the blog and vice versa. What do you think to that?
Whilst I find myself the time and space to really think about it all, I'm taking a 10 day break to get focused and come back kicking blogging butt again. In the meantime, I would really love to hear your thoughts about it all-times are changing and as my readers your thoughts are important to me!
I'm excited to see those Christmas boxes coming in on our flickr page and I'll keep an eye out for my favourites ready to feature as they come in.
Enjoy yourselves and see you soon!
