|A blog stay-cation...|
I've been very regularly posting 5 days a week, Monday to Friday, for just over 5 years (since Aug 10, 2009 I just realized) and I feel like I'm running out of things to say that speak to my core purpose of helping other chunky runners get out there and move. Also, the changes in Facebook over the last year have really diminished most bloggers' visibility, which limits new readers getting fed back to the blog itself and has caused a lot of prior readers to not even realize they've lost touch -- we've just faded away from the news feeds of many. It seems like the bloggers that continue to have vibrant communities either 1) need to pay for coverage (no thanks) or 2) have to work really, really diligently commenting in a variety of places and constantly posting new content. As much fun as I've had sharing the things I've learned (and stalking runDisney), I've still got a day job that I love (and that pays the bills). :)
A couple of weeks off will either re-energize me or show me that maybe it's time for a change. I'm usually not a fan of change but, in this case, I think it's worth exploring.
BTW, I'm not completely gone -- it's just a blog break. I'll still be commenting on Facebook and Twitter so look for me there.
