To state the obvious, it hasn’t been a very prolific blogging year for me. Working 50 to 60 hours a week all year wiped me out. After making time for exercise and bonding time with those I care about, I wasn’t left with much bandwidth for blog reading and writing. I basically fell off the grid. It turns out running your own business, while super rewarding, can leave you pretty time poor.
But I really miss blogging and I’ve been trying to figure out a way to come back to it. I was overwhelmed by the number of blogs I was trying to read, Twitter feeds I was trying to follow and email lists I had subscribed to, so I drastically pared those down. Now that I’ve cut down on the noise, maybe I’ll better be able to focus on my own content? What are your own methods for keeping up a productive blog?
I’m a little rusty, I won’t lie. In fact I think this post is awkward. But I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and a fantastic new year. Thanks for sticking around.
