I'm thinking of ways to Improve my blog

I'm really trying to improve my blog.
I want to find ways of drawing readers to my blog, but I'm not sure how I'm going to do it yet.

The title of my blog is
For the Love of Beads.

I suppose that I will still feature beads and people who make them.

That would be a good beginning.

I also want to diversify my blog and bring in new topics.
For example,
how about my daily life?
When I was little, I would dress up and carry balloons, dolls, dogs, cats, or whatever might be near. Lizards were the exception to that rule. I stayed away from lizards.
Should I blog about my childhood?
Well, maybe once in a while. I'd still rather talk about beads.
Then there are my ancestors.

I only wish I knew who she was. That might be an interesting story. I just gave her photo away to the thrift store. They didn't know who she was either.
Of course, there is always, Spike. Now that's a real possibility. I might do more features on him. People seem to like stories of Spike.
The problem is that Spike always seems to be sleeping. Smart dog, he's covered up, too! I can't blame him, it's still cold as we begin the season of Spring.

I've thought of telling stories of my everyday life, but I'm truly afraid that people would fall asleep. I've come to the conclusion that I am boring.
I've got to do something about that!
I've toyed with the idea of hooking up my web cam while I am sleeping.
Well, that's just stupid. Talk about boring. Besides, I snore.
So, I'm on a mission now. I want to improve my blog.
Any suggestions?
Let me know.
I'd really appreciate it!

the webcam might be a better idea when you're torching, rather than sleeping. not everyone knows what it looks like to play with fire :)

Ms. M, I love reading everything you write! I am sitting here now, smiling and giggling at the little girl who carries everything except lizards, wondering if that ancestor of yours ever cried or laughed (weren't those old photographs so rigid looking?) with that sweet but stern face, and thinking you could promote a Snoring is Boring Blog Day for fun...oh, and Spike is one smart snuggle puppeh! said...

I agree with everyone...just look at your last four posts...very diversified and entertaining (I mean really...flossing and sea monkeys??) I say keep it up!

Mallory your blog is always fun, I never know what I'm going to find you writing about here. You are generous and promote other artists, Spike always brings a smile to my face and the days that you tell little stories about things that happened to you are also fun. I'd just say keep up the good work! :D

Change the blog? I must really be stuffy...I thought I'd gone to the wrong place when you changed the color! I'm not sure what you're using to compare your blog to that you think you need to change. It's a slice of Mallory. A snoring web cam - let's put one up at Bead and Button and we can do a duet : - ). Keep up what you're doing....
