So I mentioned yesterday that I’d like to grow the business. My web presence needs an overhaul and I’d really like some clients here in the Mid-Atlantic. The thing I’m trying to mull over at this point in time is my blog. This blog. My web-home for three plus years.
This is what my photo biz needs:
– An easily-navigatable website
– A blog
I’m pretty set on continuing to call it Belong to the Day Photography, so this is what my dream addresses look like:
– http://www.belongtotheday.com/blog or http://www.belongtothedayblog.com
Right now, if you go to belongtotheday.com, you’ll find my graphic design portfolio. It is serving a purpose at the moment, since I’ve yet to find my next design job, but I’m itching to get everything switched over and just get my photography biz up there. I’ll have to be patient.
All of that being said, the prospect of having two different blogs down the road isn’t appealing to me. It may appeal to me in May, when I’m faced with the decision to renew my domain names, but right now I can’t see myself keeping the photog biz in one blog and my life in another.
So I’ll have to figure it all out. I really do love it here at Not a Local and the thought of me shutting it down for the sake of ease makes my heart ache.
Random thought: BTTD isn’t set in stone. And while I love, love, love it, changing the name wouldn’t hurt my business at all (since I’m not promoting and my only jobs are coming from friends at the moment). What if I switched it over to Not a Local Photography? It doesn’t read like a sentence would and it may confuse my Etsy stuff (or maybe not?), but it may work.
And thus is my thought process. Convoluted? Probably.
What do you think? Not a Local Photography? Belong to the Day Photography? Two blogs?
For the record, my photog portfolio can be found at belongtotheday.smugmug,com
