Blog Makeover

I've been blogging now for a little longer than 8 months, and I'm absolutely hooked! I started out, not really knowing what it was all about. My first few posts were, well to say the least, mundane!

Now that I actually get it, and have started making some friends in the blogosphere, and actually get comments occasionally - I thought it might be time for a makeover. I've changed the name of this blog, too. (Derek may get away with having his own name in his blog name, being so well known, but now that I know better, I'll stick to a name that actually explains what my blog is about!)

I found these Ten Tips on writing a good blog by Darren Rowse:

Here are his ten tips:

  1. Make your opinion known
  2. Link like crazy
  3. Write less
  4. 250 Words is enough
  5. Make Headlines snappy
  6. Write with passion
  7. Include Bullet point lists
  8. Edit your post
  9. Make your posts easy to scan
  10. Be consistent with your style
  11. Litter the post with keywords
That doesn't seem too hard to do! Anyone have more tips for improving my blog?


  1. Hallo weer Raenette,
    Nee, ek het geen idee hoe om te blog nie.Ek dink my skrywery oor die film Paris, je t'aime is dus te lank? Lees en kommentaar, want ek is in 'n warr... sowaar!

  2. I love the new look of your blog. Blogging has also become something that I really enjoy, and I feel like I have made some good blogging friends. I have you on my Google Reader and always check in when you post something new.
