Blog Update — October, 2017
So it has been five months
Since I wrote my first post on BikeCraftNetwork. A lot has changed ever since, and slowly but steadily the site has started to get more traffic. It’s still very minimal, but I’m okay with that. Sure, more is better but I never had the mindset that this blog/site needs to grow big. Even after five months I still don’t know whether to call this website a blog or a site, it’s kind of a mix of both.
This will be the 39th post published on BikeCraft.net. The largest category is Reviews with 14 posts, followed by Do It Yourself -category with 9 posts. It is rather surprising since the Do It Yourself posts are by far the most time-consuming type to create. Writing the post doesn’t take that long but the background work does. Designing is fun but very time-consuming and documenting the build process takes a while too. I’m glad to see that these posts are also by far the most viewed posts. Seeing people reading your posts is what makes this worth all the effort and time it takes.
Feedback is highly appreciated
It’s great that people are reading my posts. However, over the past five months, I have got very few comments on my posts. A little word of encouragement means a lot more to me than you’d ever think. If you include some actual feedback on the side, I couldn’t be happier. Feedback is what helps you improve, and I really want to. Don’t hesitate to give me critique, I know there’s a lot I could improve on. Positive or negative feedbacks are equally important, so don’t worry about being honest.
I’d also love to hear what you would like to see more? Do It Yourself projects, reviews, guides or what? Nothing is set in stone, so feel free to suggest something that doesn’t fit the existing categories too. Feel free to toss out any kind of post ideas!
What have I planned for the future
This site/blog might be going through a major overhaul during the next few weeks. I’m heavily considering changing the name of the site/blog. I still don’t know what the future name might be, but I no longer feel that BikeCraftNetwork fits the direction the blog is heading at. I have also thought of introducing a new category or two in the future. One could be something like “3D modeling” since I’d like to practice it more. And what would be a better way to learn it than by making models out of something you are into? I like how designing and 3D modeling programs offer such a great opportunity to bring your ideas into life, virtually at least.
I have also thought about making more videos in the future. Before that can happen I need to invest in a decent action camera and microphone. So it might take a while but it will happen one day.
