Today marks the 5th anniversary of this blog – Organised Castle. WordPress sent me a message of congratulations this evening but I had remembered this morning when I checked back to the date of my first post.
It is interesting that I reach this milestone at a time when I have spent some time debating the future of Organised Castle. I am definitely planning to continue with the blog but am yet to decide on the direction.
Some blogs have a very narrow focus with quite specific content whereas mine tends to be a more rambling approach to whatever is foremost in my mind. Over the last 5 years I have covered topics as diverse as decluttering, my small wardrobe, gardening, menu planning, sewing, general organisation, cooking, green cleaning, preserving food and even some political commentary.
When I started the blog I made a commitment to myself to post every day in order to make it a habit. Sometimes I stick to this and other times there can be substantial gaps when life gets in the way. I have considered a less onerous schedule of perhaps 2 posts per week, however, I have decided to maintain the current random posting of whenever I have the time and something worthwhile to say.
While the frequency of posts is entirely my decision, I would love some feedback from you, dear reader, regarding the content. I have recently posted a number of posts with recipes and preparation of our dinners. These seem to have been popular and I am wondering if I should do more of this. What would you like to see in future posts? Anything I should leave out? I would love your feedback because although this is part diary it is also about sharing knowledge and skills and I want to keep it relevant for you.
I am looking forward to the next 5 years and what will unfold and time goes by.
