I'm sure by now you all have noticed the lack of consistent post lately. If you're a hardcore blogger you know that this is essentially the kiss of death for bloggers. At the blogging conferences, the first thing they'll tell you is "Post regularly. Post often"
And so we do. We schedule every second of every day. We spend an unimaginable amount of time trying to find ways to connect with our readers. Those photos that you quickly glance at while skimming our posts have gone through hours of editing. Those post titles required hours of painstaking research. Those witty words were rewritten over and over again.
But then life happens. It's messy and demanding. It has no understanding of consistency. And so we slip. But we start to breathe a little more easier. We unplug our computers and begin to integrate ourselves back into the real world. But all the while we have that nagging feeling that we're letting years of hard work essentially go to waste.
So for now, I'm stuck at an impasse until I can figure out what needs to be done. I do have a few obligations that I need to take care of. A few promises to follow through with. And then I'll decide where to go from there.
