My last great post was The Novelty Curve. Sadly, it went up over a month ago. Everything else since then has been marginal—filler. I'm sorry. It's the price you pay for serving more than one master. Work demands, family demands, life demands. Can you relate?
Sean over at Buzz Canuck is right when he says:
"the death of the hobbyist blogger - good, passion-based bloggers have all got more professional jobs or speaking gigs in their respective fields meaning more time with clients, internal stuff and consequently, less time, energy and in some cases, candour in researching, conceptualizing and writing their blogs"
Here's what Sean recommends:
"Somebody like TED needs to create an "Ideaosphere" that includes blogs at all levels of the social media caste system that are putting forward great ideas and content. Hopefully, a link and traffic-agnostic blog portal would be able to create the 'Atlantic Monthly" of the blog world - a place where discriminating minds could go and be inspired by fresh and progressive voice."
Sean could be on to something. But whether it's a blogger version of TED or something else, I think his take is spot on. Ask yourself when your last great post was. Or maybe ask yourself why you started blogging in the first place. Or maybe, just maybe ask yourself how you can add value without running yourself into the ground. That's the question I need to ask myself...
