a hypothetical question?

So if a hypothetical girl hypothetically would like to start a new blog should she?

I may know of a girl who increasingly loves writing* but really wants to have a personal blog separate from a more "professional" blog.**

Her other quandary is whether she should take her own blog persona with her or start afresh and anonymously?

Would you be interested in another wedding/life/love/marriage blog or is the market saturated already?

Your views would be gratefully solicited and of much interest to a certain hypothetical girl.


*ack a certain mother telling a certain girl she had a terrible writing style and should not be allowed to write. (Not that this girl thinks she has a good writing style, she just seems to enjoy the whole writing caboodle.)

**she recently changed jobs and wants a new challenge (she fears it may still be wedding related - wordy but pretty?)

  1. I think that this hypothetical girl should relish that her current blog has been such a success and take that success with her into the hypothetical new realms. I'll still follow it :)

  2. you already know how I feel about this matter: Dooooooo it!!!! & I think hypothetical girl should stay herself. You're already wedding blog famous and your writing style is smart & incredibly endearing. Go hypothetical Anna, go!

  3. Hmmm, this hypothetical girl sounds like she has made her mind up already!!! Think it's a (hypothetically) wonderful idea and this hypothetical girl so just do it!!!!!

  4. DEFINITELY do this.
    the market will never be saturated for unique and talented ladies like you, anna, you'll always rise above all that jibber-jabber and come out on top. can't wait to see what you come up with.

  5. i say keep the one blog!! just focus it!

    1. personality + personal side == important, even in a pro blog
    2. what's your unique wedding angle?
    3. what are your goals for hypothetical blog?

  6. I think Verhext et al are right: keep anna and the ring on, you've built a relationship with your readership over time, it has value. I think that if handled with a sense of balance and integrity the pro/personal fusion is what makes some blogs so appealing (eg jasmine star, apw...)

    *waves cheerleading pompoms for hypothetical blogger*

  8. just recently found your blog, love it, love your writing style, loved your pics on love my dress. i'd really like to read more of what you have to say, so weather you stick to the one blog or go for two, stay yourself, i'll be following! x

  9. Please keep blogging, whether here or elsewhere. I totally understand the need to begin a separate blog for non-wedding subjects, though. (Mine launches next week!)

  10. I hypothetically love the idea.

  11. I'm both for and against. I love the current blog and think it is wide open for stepping up into the pro wedding blog world - it makes sense. A new one might mean the demise of this one. And that would be sad. But hey, I started a new one when I already had one so who am I to talk?

  12. I hypothetically also love the idea xxx

  13. Ooh yes! This needs to be an e-mail conversation and will get back to you soon on the CV!

  14. I like the idea, but I'm all about constantly reinventing oneself and creating new content, and even new blogs, to do so. that being said, the blogging anonymously versus openly is a tricky one. i blog anonymously, but that has a lot to do with my current job and what i do for a living. that is also (partially) the reason why i don't have a facebook page. so think that question is best answered by deciding if you're comfortable if you're "out" and anybody can come see what you are writing about. i prefer being in the blogging closet, so to speak.

  15. A hippie response but I think she should just do what feels right!

  16. Tough one but I'm leaning towards a separate one. I think there's definitely room for another well executed (and those are the key words here. I know yours would be :)}wedding/life/love/marriage blog.

    Well that's my two cents. Hope it helps :)

    Have a great weekend, honey! xoxo

  17. If it were me - which it is not. I think I'd keep this one as the wedding blog and start another personal one. Or is that what you are suggesting? Either way let me know where you go.

  18. I think you should start a new one for this exciting new chapter in your life. You have plenty to say lady so either way I don't think we'll get bored of you ;)
