I recently combed through my archives and was shocked to see I’ve been blogging here since 2007! That is an eternity in Internet years. I’ve been quite constant in my blogging — I do own a dozen blogs — but this past year I’ve slumped quite a bit. My life has changed somewhat (I work) and I don’t have as much free time, or even think time, like I used to. Some days I feel pretty dry.
A whole bunch of my blogging friends have quit already; their blogs are merely a shell, have been completely dismantled or they post so infrequently that it’s as if they’ve stopped. It’s sad to me to see a beloved blog go.
So I’ve been considering folding a few of these sites. It’s become very difficult to keep them updated, and since a certain blogging company has practically closed up shop (who shall remain nameless) I have less motivation to keep them running. The well is feeling mighty dry. Of course, everyone keeps telling me that a break or some kind of vacation will fix it. i don’t know. I think I would need a pretty long vacation to fix this! A year at one of those sweet Marietta GA hotels might do it, away from the crazy hustle and bustle….
Anyway, blogging has not quite become a chore, not yet. But as you can tell, I haven’t updated this blog in a while. They blogs were hacked a few months ago and it took a lot of work to get them back up. I’d sure hate to have all that blood, sweat and tears go to waste! I’m torn between keeping blogs I no longer maintain or trying to get my oomph back again. All I can do is wait.
How about you, have you felt your well running dry lately?
