I haven’t ever thought about moving the blog forward more just blogged week to week and slowly the blog grew. I tried different things some worked others didn’t over time. But the blog has got to the stage and as a fellow blogger noted the other day about seven year which is the age of this blog I maybe need to start dangling a carrot and maybe neaten a few loose trails on the blog. When I started the blog I had no real idea of how to blog and over the years my knowledge has grown but I have also never gone back and neaten things off on the blog. So I started a page of Winston’s goals to try and reach some totals blog wise like reviewing 100 french books and 50 German books both of which i am fairly near too and could be reachable this year. How do you keep yourself going when you have been blogging for a long time. I not losing interest in the blog I just find it has maybe come an endless cycle of doing the same thing week in week out and maybe by setting goals I can change that some what . I also feel I have lost a little influence on twitter the last year or twonot sure if it is me being less involved or just twitter is different now than when I first joined it.I sometimes miss Translationthurs and I started it, I need to try and be on there a bit more .
