Of course, this may cause you to step away, and that's OK. In fact I've recently eliminated some old friends from my blog reader: blogs I've been reading for years, in some cases.
Sometimes it's because the writer's started to repeat his/herself. Quite normal, when you consider that our thinking tends to run in tracks (well, mine certainly does). This is often true of writing advice blogs of all kinds; they are very useful for a while, at a certain stage in your career, and then after a bit you start to feel comfortable with what you know and just don't need the advice any more. Which is fine, because there are always new writers coming on the scene, and the writing blogs will be invaluable to them.
Sometimes it's because the blog has evolved in a direction that no longer interests me. And then, sometimes it's just because I can only keep up with a certain number of blogs and I have to cut back somewhere.
But I continue to follow
Can Writers Choose? where I collect articles on all sorts of publishing topics
The Big List of Book Lists because I'm always coming across good reading lists
The top right-hand corner of my blog page will usually feature one of my information offerings, and I hope to change it regularly to keep it fresh.
Lower down on the right-hand side of the page, you'll find my 20 latest book reviews on Goodreads; I don't put all of my reviews on this blog by any means. I have had to eliminate and simplify a bit to keep this list where I wanted it to be; if you desperately miss any particular gadget just tell me.
Does all this bookish stuff mean I'm becoming a book blogger? Not really. I still don't want to focus Keep Going You Fool! too narrowly but the book reviews are a) popular and b) a source of constant new material. I will continue to write nonsense whenever the silly side of life strikes me, and generally reserve the right to do whatever I darn well please.
I'm also hoping to get more interviews with all kinds of people in the publishing industry and beyond. I'm fascinated by all the options out there for anyone who loves books and fine writing, and I want to ask lots of nosy questions. So if you have a question you'd like to have asked, let me know! keepgoingyoufool(AT)gmail(DOT)com is the email address to use.
And I'll be adding some more pages over the next few weeks. Not quite sure how they'll turn out, but I have a few ideas.
Have you evolved recently? I'm a big believer in change (because, for one thing, I have a very low boredom threshold) but I feel like I'm an exception. Do you love to change, or do you prefer things to stay the same?
