I am writing this post to announce some changes to this blog. Its been almost 4 months since this blog started and the results are close to what I expected. Slowly and steadily, the readers are building up and so are the visitors to this blog. However, to keep the readers engaged, change is necessary. That is why I decided to make some changes to the type of future posts on this blog, which I will be sharing with you all below. You all can (hopefully) expect a redesign too, by the end of this year. Now, the chages I was talking about:
- Many of you must have noticed that there was no 'Best Of' post this month. This is because I thought deeply about it and came to a conclusion that it should be discontinued. We all know how the big blogs like Abduzeedo have their 'Best of the week' series, WDD have their 'Tweets of the week' series, Tuts+ also have a series of monthly 'Best of' round-up posts etc. Then why is it necessary for this blog to have one? Even I list the same articles as they do. Even though the 'Best Of' series of posts on my blog have generated a lot of traffic, I don't really see their usefulness anymore. Thats because most of the articles and links in these posts are from the well known blogs and the good posts from the lesser known blogs are left out. Hence, I believe the scrapping of the 'Best Of' series is justified.
- Instead of the above mentioned series of posts, I am starting a new series called 'Under the spotlight'. These posts will be about some really great and unique articles, stunningly beautiful websites, very useful apps, my favourite artists and anything new that I come across. If the 'Best Of' was about quantity, you can say that this is about quality, with more focus on the design aspects. Four months of blogging have taught me a lot about blogging and design.
Well, this is it for now. A new post will be coming up soon! Stay tuned!
