Ah ha, the proverbial crossroads again. For what it’s worth this is my 99th post and I have been at this for 15 months. The question for me right now is ‘can he make it to 100’ and if so, will number 100 be stellar or ‘invisible?’
This has certainly been a week of contemplation and on top of that between business, life and other stuff I have been virtually non-existent online other that tweeting from my phone. In fact, I have not even had time to respond to comments on my post which is pretty sad indeed.
Is it selfish of me to post knowing I am pretty much going to be offline all week?
I enjoy writing, and actually enjoy it much more than I thought I would. However, because all I do is write and don’t play any of the other games to drive eyeballs and subscriptions, my whole platform is based on my writing and commenting; nothing more. Whereas some have built pretty impressive communities; I know mine is pretty much predicated on how much I am out and about than solid subscribers who have been driven here and wait with bated breath for each and every single post.
It’s nobody’s fault but my own, but because I didn’t even do the most simplest of the ‘proper’ social tasks, it has created a lot of continual heavy lifting on my part. I know, go ahead and call the waaahhhhmbulance……
For those who have stuck around this long I certainly applaud you and if I had any medals to give, would certainly give you one.
I love my community
My hard core community is solid as a rock; some of the best people in the business. And I don’t want anybody to think this post is about giving it up and throwing in the towel. But ‘how’ I look in the immediate future might be different and if that means you have to jump ship I will certainly understand.
We all know how time consuming it can be to keep up with all of our friends, so look at it like I’m doing you a favor and creating some extra time for you to use.
I will still be writing, but might not be as visible; at least for now. I will also be reading and visiting, but will have to see how that runs its course, so only time will tell.
I will always be social
I am not giving up my social platforms, but might be approaching it in a different way.
Monday was somewhat telling because I was not able to get out like I normally do. For me, it’s hard to sit on the sidelines and not get in the game, but I certainly noticed the difference in my traffic when I’m not ‘involved.’
Anyhooo, is it truly time to fish or cut bait? I’m not sure I have enough ‘want to’ to make my post a legitimate one instead of just a pretender; but know pulling the ‘lazy’ card has gotten me in the predicament I’m currently in.
Don’t cry for me
Who knows, maybe I’ll miss it so much I’m come crawling back with my tail between my legs and see if anybody will still have me. I have a pretty good idea of what it will look like however, and I’m perfectly fine with it.
Oh well, that’s my story for today and I’m sticking with it.
