Blog Changes

Hi all.

This is just a quick post to ask for some feedback.  Lately (about a year now) a lot of my blog posts have been about things Montessori and the educational activities that I have been doing for Miss Oh Waily.  There has been a definite lack of what had previously been standard fare postings – film, wine and book reviews.  It occurs to me that while you may be vaguely interested in the odd family update, you may not be interested in the minutae of what we are doing.  Fine, so Miss Oh is using scissors like a professional and her first attempt at the Pink Tower was reasonably successful (post to come on that).  But you are not all that keen on reading quite so much of these sorts of posts and would perhaps prefer it if I returned to a bit more of the old regulars.

To that end, I have been wondering whether I should separate out the detailed educational posts into a specific blog for that purpose.  Then those who are genuinely interested in reading about the ideas or what Miss and Master Oh are up to can do so.  And those who may be a bit more interested in the previous style of posts may be able to enjoy seeing a few more of those instead of a constant stream of what my children are doing.  What say you ?  Now’s the time to delurk – I know there are a few of you who read but don’t comment – or if you comment you keep it to Facebook.  This is your chance to have a say and maybe the first time interacting with a blog.  Go on, give it a go.  You just need to select an answer and then the vote button.

Thanks in advance for your feedback, hopefully it will make for a better read for those regular visitors and readers.

  1. I voted for ‘I like it as it is’. Even though my kids are older, I really enjoy reading about your journey with your two. Also, it seems that when people separate out their blogs according to topic, they lose rather than gain readership. Your blog is you, it reflects your life and your interests. I, for one, would be happy if you kept it that way.


  2. Thanks Charlotte.
    It looks like everyone agrees with you.
    As Mr OWW said to me the other night, people can see the post header and skip what they don’t find interesting. The delete button is a wonderful invention for those with a feed reader.

    By the way, I was thinking of you the other night. I’ve been reading “Through the Looking Glass” and the section where Alice meets Humpty Dumpty made me think of your novel in progress.

    ‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.’

    ‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

    ‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master – that is all.’

    Alice was too much puzzled to say anything, so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again.
    ‘They’ve a temper, some of them – particularly verbs, they’re the proudest – adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs – however I can manage the whole lot of them!
