I have been hit by stumbleupon over the weekend. I am thankful for all the visit and comments that stumblers brought to Psychology Blog.
The post which was visited by a couple of thousands was Your Charm Does Not Depend On Your Body
I suggest you to read the comments section. I have the feeling that most people didn’t find that article fit for a psychology blog. I don’t totally agree with this however i can’t simply disagree either.
First, psychology is a broad concept. When I hear the phrase “psychology blog”, first web site I have in my mind is the Psy-Blog. Especially the post “Top Ten Psychology Studies” is a typical post which people expect when they hear something like psychology.
On the other hand, my psychology blog is mostly about clinical psychology and then mostly about alternative tips and techniques in clinical psychology. Therefore it is quiet natural that most people will not see fit that this blog has such a title.
Having said that, I am thinking of a solution on this. One solution might be to freeze this blog as it is now and go for another domain and continue from there. I have several domains in my hand lik this one (hayatkisa.com) on which I can make use of meaningful subdomains. Well this isn’t a big problem anyway because there are hundreds of millions of web sites out there and people remembering a web site with its unique domain name is a little bit history. I’ts valid for a handful of big web sites only.
I believe that starting anew with over one year experience in blogging would do better for me and for my visitors. Please comment about this. I am not going to delete this blog or any single post in it, nor will I move the posts elsewhere. I will just setup a new blog that has a better title with a deeper meaning than Psychology Blog.
What do you think?
