You may have noticed a serious decline in the number of my posts lately. In fact, you may have noticed a major decline in the posts on a lot of your favorite blogs lately. Never fear, blogging isn't going away, it's simply evolving. There was a time where my reader box was overflowing with posts from the lovely blogs that I follow. So much so that it was impossible to keep up with. Everyone seemed to be writing a new post every day, even weekends. I even followed a few blogs that posted more than once a day.
It became so overwhelming that there was no way I could keep up reading them all. Much as I loved each one of them, if I read them all every day, I would never write books. Something I know the writer's of those blogs likely struggled with themselves. And I'm guilty myself. I wrote posts five days a week once upon a time. It was inevitable that we would slow down and take stock of the importance of our time. I love blogging, I love my readers, and I love helping other writers. I'll never stop blogging and helping other writers, I've simply slowed down and re-organized my time.
How about you? If you've an avid blogger, do you find that you've slowed down over the years? If you're an avid blog reader, do you find that people are putting up fewer posts, and does it make it easier for you?
