I'm still trying to decide how to handle this new blog setup. Until now, I kept a seperate blog on my website that existed only on my website, and thus had a limited (a very limited) audience. Now my blog is integrated into this politically themed website, and that throws a wrench into things.
First off, I have been trying to de-politicize my blog (and in fact my entire website) for a while now, so this new method will inject more politics back into things. Second, I have two completely unrelated groups of people who will be viewing. It's like a big Venn Diagram (which is really just a fancy spin put on the old "intersection and union" thing we all learned in grade school) where you have these two huge circles and they're joined by one little dot: me.
So now there will be circumstances where I may be talking about something that's happening on the forum that the non-forum people won't have a clue about, or I could be talking about a biking thing that has no place on the forum. And on top of that, my website will show comments that cannot be read unless one is a member of the forum. It all has the makings of a huge shemozzle.
I do have the ability to create seperate categories, so I could have a category for my webpage that's hidden from the forum, and vice versa, but the whole point of this was to have one blog and not a bunch of blogs, whether they're combined in the same place or not.
I still have no idea what to do. (P.S. I'd love to use a smiley here, but they look like crap when displayed on my website)
