New Blog Launched

April 1st, 2009 · 9 Comments

As part of my continuing mid life crisis project to streamline what I’m doing online, I’m pleased to announce my new blog MikeyBee.com.

You’ll notice that a couple of blog posts from here have been moved across to the new site (Do You Suffer From Internet Schizophrenia and Ryanair: Bloggers Are Lunatics and Idiots). The more observant of you will also notice the Twenty Steps sidebar has been tidied up with fewer categories. The uber observant will also spot that around 50 old posts have been deleted.

Why?

Well as I said in my last post, I’m wanting to take Twenty Steps back to basics and cover the original three main topics – search, blogging and online marketing. Anything which didn’t fit into these categories either got shifted around or got binned. In the case of the two blog posts moved to the new site it was because they were fresh enough to still be relevant.

Moving forward, I’m going to be a lot more focused about what I write about here. If it doesn’t fall into one of the three topics above, it won’t appear on Twenty Steps – I’ll probably write about it on the new blog so if you think you might miss my thought provoking *koff* posts about online life, subscribe to MikeyBee.com so you still get your fix :D

I’m planning to revamp this site using the excellent Thesis theme by Chris Pearson. I’ve been a long time fan of his WordPress themes and, having played around with Thesis on the new site, his latest one seriously rocks.

I’m also considering reviving the original Challenge. You know. That stupid idea that you only need to double a dollar twenty times to make a million? Nothing definite as yet but I guess I got a bit misty eyed when going through all the old posts about it so we’ll see, eh?

Will I be posting more regularly here? I would imagine so. Now that I’m back into blogging mode with the new site there’s a good chance that some of that might just spill over to Twenty Steps.

Now, where have I heard that before?

    First of all congrats on the new blog! Secondly I think it is a great idea to keep this blog focused and I would love to read more about the 20x doubling idea as I am relatively new to this blog and haven’t read about it in the older posts you have done.

    The main thing in any blog is to stick to a topic and then maintain the same. I have come across many blogs that deviate from the topic that they are supposed to or have chosen to blog about. This is what makes the visitors come back to your blog.
    Also, congratulations on your latest blog. Hope it does well.
    Cheers!!!

    the new blog looks great. I kinda wish you’d update it more often.

    Planning on a couple of updates over the next few weeks. Sadly I caught a nasty dose of Real Life which has kept me away from the computer for a while…

    You’ve made a great blog! You know what, you’re right, the best way to maintain the quality of your blog is to focus on your topic. Looking forward for more updates from you!

    The new blog’s awesome! Wish you’d update it more often. Or if you’d at least update this one from time to time :)

    How many blog you have now? Updating more than one blog really needs time. However in Mikeybee, I think the topic you discuss there is a little bit wide.

    Quite possibly but Mikey Bee is literally random thoughts that spill out of my head and my brain is full of lot’s of stuff :)
