Because no one’s following your blog that closely.
OK, I suppose if you’re Seth Godin or an equivalent thought leader in your industry, people might notice when you take a hiatus. For the rest of us, not so much.
Imagine how flattered I was when a reader (not even a family member) sent me an email asking me why I hadn’t posted in a while—like in well more than a year. (OK, more than two years.)
His question still doesn’t make me a Seth Godin, but in the miniscule almost microscopic chance that anyone else has noticed, here’s my excuse—I’ve been busy.
As an old manager of mine would have said, I have a “happiness problem.”
You see, I started my freelancing content creation business roughly three years ago. Luckily, most people ether:
A/ can’t write
B/ hate to write
C/ don’t have time to write
D/ some combination of all of the above
Since nearly 90% of my time is spent creating content for clients, I haven’t had to worry much about my own content. This is unfortunate since I love blogging, and I miss it. (OK, it’s not that unfortunate since my clients pay me and blogging doesn’t.)
Rest assured, I am still out here. You can still reach me at email@example.com or by posting comments on my blog. I'll try harder to stay in touch too!
All the best!
