Somewhere over the course of the last few years I found myself writing and blogging less and less. I am not sure why this is but I wanted to change all that. So much has changed and transpired that I think I became paralyzed with the fear of having to “catch up” on all that I missed covering. One thing that has remained constant has been my system of tagging things that I would like to one day write about, and drafting the outlines or beginnings of posts via mobile. This system has left with me with a graveyard of links and half started posts that never saw the light of day.
On the other hand I have been able to accomplish much professionally and help a handful of companies and entrepreneurs in the time I used to spend writing. The benefit has been the same; I put things out there publicly and hope for an intelligent discussion and to learn from the process.
Somewhere along the way I think I got scared to continue to do so publicly.
I could argue that this blog is one of my greatest assets, and I abandoned it. Afterall, it contributed heavily to my employment and led to countless amazing conversations with people I met through my blog. I am forever indebted to those people that linked here, commented publicly, or shared something I wrote – and I feel like I abandoned them too.
Its a funny thing to look back on my posting history and match that up to my life events. Sometimes the lack of posts make a ton of sense, sometimes none at all knowing those were slow months.
In any case, this post marks a return for me publicly.
They say that announcing goals holds you more accountable, and I hope this does the trick. I have a bunch of content drafted that I hope sparks my old interest in the topics (despite some of them being very out of date) as well as provides a consistant publishing cadence that allows me to post some of the less thought out pieces to get better informed from others.
This blog has always been an experiment, and now the journey continues.
