I’ve been lamenting for months now about the lack of posts here on the site. Sometimes that has been a result of not knowing what to talk about, but more often than not it is a result of having other priorities, especially around the holidays.
Coincidentally, I came across two other posts whose authors also lamented not doing more with their blogs, however each came to different conclusions.
Many people I admire and respect have wonderful blogs and website, so I figured it was something that I should have too. Over the years I’ve tried to “force” myself to blog more often and it always felt like a chore.
Don’t get me wrong, I still write a lot but the vast majority of my writing is for ye olde day job. I seem to have fallen out of the habit of writing for pleasure.
I can understand both Katie and Scott’s positions with their respective blogs. When I first started this site, the idea of emulating those whose work I admire definitely played a role in my decision to start blogging.
I have also enjoyed the technical challenge of teaching myself GitHub and Jekyll. I will, however, admit to having used those challenges as a crutch to not posting as often as I could, because I still haven’t found a good workflow for posting from my iPad. Before the holidays I started brainstorming solutions and telling myself I’d get back to posting once those roadblocks were sorted out. After a couple of days I gave myself a mental head slap and realized there will always be something that I want to tweak or adjust.
Here’s to doing more in 2018.
