Getting Back on Track

It has been more than a month since my last post to the blog.  That’s a long enough gap that the site is certainly stale bordering on irrelevant.  It is a good reminder to me that, like exercise, when you try to fit something into your schedule it’s easy to let it fall through the cracks.  Things get done more easily when they are habits.  I have scheduled set times in my schedule to keep the blog current.  We’ll see how I do.

    One of the challenges of the information age is the expectation that you must “always be connected”. For websites and blogs to retain readers they have to be updated often enough to keep them in people’s minds. People expect you to keep your content fresh and you have to find ways to be both relevant and interesting all the time.
    I’ve been following some prolific bloggers (most of which are twitter users too) and I’ve come to the conclusion that you’ve got to carve out a couple hours a week at a minimum if you want to write good content and keep things fresh… plus you’ve got to find time to read and respond to what others say too, that’s one of the best ways to draw readers back to your own posts.
    So give up some sleep, give up some family time, give up your favorite TV shows, none are good solutions, but somehow we all have to find time to meet the expectations of this new connected world or we’ll find ourselves mute and irrelevant. It’s a challenge for us all.
    Keep writing John, we’ll keep reading!

    John, I can relate to what you are saying here; I am woefully behind on my blogs also. It is difficult to keep up, and I appreciate that you are trying again.
