Last night I was reading the comments on the Facebook fan page and one got my attention. “I hate to say it but your blog is becoming to commercial for my tastes.”
I than took the time to look back at my recent posts and see if this was true and I had to agree with this reader. The Tiny House Blog was starting to look like a Tiny House Craigslist. Needless to say I had a restless night trying to sleep.
I think it is time for me to refocus on where the Tiny House Blog’s future is going and I want you to respond with your thoughts.
The Tiny House Blog was started almost 4 years ago in May of 2007 with a focus on the different types of structures available for building a tiny house. As the blog grew the focus changed to include stories of people who are actually living the tiny simple life.
Over the last year or so it has grown to helping promote new businesses and helping people sell their tiny homes, showing potential tiny houses via craigslist and even helping people raise money for their projects. Frankly, I like to help readers if I can.
I think the Tiny House Blog maybe has grown to where it is trying to do to much and thus is becoming scattered in its presentation. A blog has one main focus area which is the post. Trying to present everything there just may be to much.
What are your thoughts? Please comment below in the comment section and give me your feed back. My goal is to make the Tiny House Blog have quality content and to encourage you to continue to come and visit. Maybe trying to post 7 days a week is to much, maybe I should cut back to 3 or 5 days. There are many new blogs and websites out there today, let TinyHouseListings sell the homes, etc.
I want to hear your thoughts and I will be taking a couple days off to think this through myself. Thanks for listening!
