However, I'm here with a question about a personal project that I want to embark upon. (And apologies in advance for the lengthy post.)
Backstory: I've been going through a lot of issues lately, and have been looking on Google for information about bipolar disorder and cyclothymia. Whenever I'd run a search, everything on the first page (which is about as far as I usually go) seems to be written from a more academic/mental health practitioner viewpoint.
This has made figuring out my own problems difficult, because being greeted with stoic definitions and impersonal lists of symptoms has given me very little to relate to. It's been hard to apply this information to what is really going on in my life, and I might have been able to figure out what was wrong much earlier if I'd found "better" information.
So, my goal is to create an easily found webpage or two with stories from real people that apply the lists and definitions to real life circumstances. I want it to show up on the first page in Google eventually. (I know there are other search engines, but I'm trying to reach people like me, who use Google exclusively and tend not to go past the first page.)
The problem (which might be hard to understand) is, because the way my brain works, I can lose motivation pretty quickly. I really want to do something before my motivation fades away, and creating an entire website specifically for this will take a lot more work than I think my attention span can handle (and I'd like to avoid the sandbox if I can).
I do have an existing account with Blogger that contains one blog I have been posting to for the past year with some frequency.
My options are either a- write a really good post in my current blog and try to get others to comment in it and link to it with various keywords or b- create a new blog with my account that allows for team members and could focus more specifically on the topic. I think option "b" might be better (if I can keep up with it), but I am wondering if this new blog would be sandboxed as well, despite my previous account with Blogger.
So my questions are:
-Does a new blog in an existing Blogger account get sandboxed?
-Is the best option really to just start a new blog and live with the sandbox?
Thanks for any advice or opinions. (And feel free to ask me "personal stuff" if you're curious. The more people who understand mental health issues the better.)
