Semi-Hiatus: Blog Update Post

“Man passed out on the floor of the kitchen” by simpleinsomnia is licensed under CC BY 2.0

So, here we are five months since this blog launched and through some hard labor and intent, genuine interactions with other blogs we have just short of 80 posts, some odd 30 followers and almost 1000 views. Every hurdle is a milestone, right? The truth is, I love posting on this blog, but I am not doing myself any favors by keeping it up like I have been with posting 4-5 times a week. It takes a terrible amount of time to do and with that being said, I am not doing myself any favors with my personal goals, work and home life, etc. I cannot humanly do everything I want to. It is simply healthy to set boundaries in life; this is how we manage ourselves and it is so important to do that and in turn helps your happiness and loved ones, too. So, if you are following this blog, here is what I expect to change:

  • Less frequent posts, but more focus on book reviews when posting along with updates, if any in regards to writing efforts. Not quite sure about frequency yet, but I hope to give at least one post a week.
  • No more Friday Fun Links for a while ( with the exception of today ), not exactly sure how long.
  • I will still keep up with comments, etc as I always stay pretty close to all my technology mediums.

So, if you are a newer follower, I encourage you to go back through past posts and see if you find anything interesting that fancies you. There are some earlier RWP posts that even make me laugh when I go back and read them.

If you have any suggestions, rude or snide remarks about the layout or anything else about this site, I encourage you to put those comments here, because I do care! After all, this is my presence on the WWW.

Happy blogging, and if you have followed or commented here so far, I highly appreciate you taking even a moment out of your life to interact here, keep coming back!

Guys, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley

Once-a-week works pretty well for our blog – especially if, like us, you’re considering posting mostly reviews; in my experience, they take a lot of time!
Thanks for the heads-up and good luck!

Great to hear. Yes, they take a good amount of time, but I think it is a great discipline!

How is New Zealand treating you, by the way? I’ve heard their social programs are pretty good. Any cool nature views out there?

Good thing I checked the spam queue, because you were sitting in there, quarantined.

I think so VTA ( may I call you VTA for short? =D ). I found myself, while building up premise and interests of mine and integrating them into the site, along with my worldly activities, a bit overloaded and inching toward loathful. So this man put his foot down! 😄 Pretty sure I burnt myself out on the last blog in 2008, and that is not happening again.

Dude you took some time off and even then i missed out on everything you posted in the last two months. Wtf is wrong with me? For thst I say sorry. Youve put out more content in your first five months than i did in my first year of blogging, which wasnt that long ago… keep it up mate.
