Something happened several days ago. I finally published posts I wrote personally, rather than collected and repackaged “transpersonal” content from the many great public sources available. I think I like writing.
It has raised an Issue, and did so quickly: should I start a second blog?
I am not sure I have the time for the extra admin work, but there’s a clear blog identity issue here. Let me see if I can form some questions.
1. Will a particular writing style conflict with the archive-like feel of the rest of the blog?
2. Is it fair to modify the nature of the blog by posting opinion articles after so many followed before the opinion posts began appearing?
3. Is it worth it?
4. Is there an angle that will smooth out the differences? Perhaps a way of categorizing or naming?
5. Have I missed anything?
I realize that only a precious few of you reading this have read both types of posts. But still, if there is anything you can add it will be considered with the precision of a laser and the gratitude of a penitent. ;*) I am having the time of my life, but I can see getting overwhelmed… I bet some of you know about that. I am an artist, but I haven’t really painted in years. The last 5 or so posts have encouraged and enlivened me in a way I haven’t felt since I was painting regularly, and I would prefer to ride this wave and see where it takes me.
So, please, comment away. I’m not sure I believe in past lives, but even if they are real I’m positive I’ve never faced this problem before. Thanks everyone!
