Is it a good thing or a bad thing that my cat now wants more attention?
Bad. The pest will annoy you for the rest of her life.

Best to call the vet and ask. Maybe there are other physical signs you might not have known to look for. Never hurts, just to be safe, in case she may be sick or in discomfort. It could also be anxiety, especially if there have been any changes in the home such as someone else moving in/out, furniture changed around, more noise than usual from neighbors, etc.

it could be a sign of illness--any behavior change is reason to be suspicious....or something could be making her needy...are you anxious or sad? cats pick up on our moods and respond to them.
you better give some attention to the cat or they will pee on your bed .
