Blogging Update: Goals In Action

thriving-mohnfeld-1549753

Hello hello! Just wanted to drop in and write a quick post to update you all, dear readers.

I’ve made a few updates here on the blog. Ever since I answered Sharon’s question about blogging goals (on my Liebster award post) I’ve really been thinking about ways that I can improve the blog.

So today I bit the bullet and purchased my domain name. It’s official. My site is now thebuttercuplamb.com! Yay!

I also am changing the looks of the blog a bit. The header image is updated. Some of the titles of my posts have been changed for clarity. I’m adding bits here and there to improve readability and navigation.

I’m working on narrowing my focus as well. I want to narrow down my categories to food, books, motherhood & reflections, nature and caturday. That’s still 5 categories but whatever. I’m happy with it. I may add another category or two later this year about diys and sewing and maybe natural skin care as well. We shall see.

And as I mentioned in my last blogging update post, there is still so much to learn about blogging. But I’m getting there 🙂 And I’ve learned so much already.

A big thank-you to all of my readers for liking, following along, for your support & encouragement. It is very much appreciated. (And I’ve enjoyed following your stories & posts as well, thank-you for sharing them!)

  1. So happy for you Rachel!!! Congrats on owning this name!!!

    People sometimes use categories like tags, and they are two different things for a reason. Pick categories you have multiple blog posts for, and it’s okay to have random posts that may not fit a category. 🙂 If you start to see more posts with a pattern, that’s when to add a category.

    You’re doing amazing! I’m so happy and so proud of you!

    1. Thank-you 🙂 Yes I am sometimes a bit muddled on the difference. Tags I see as more specific and categories a lot broader. Tags to me are kinda like hashtags. Not really sure why they are there, but I know having them helps others.

      1. Tags as the words people will use in a search bar and find your posts. They are the main topic, subject matter of your posts. Categories are broader in the sense of you can a Recipe category but you may have posts that are for organic food for example, or recipes that are cost efficient. That’s where your tags come in. 🙂
