Slow Updates, Upcoming Gaps, and a Possible Two Week Blackout of the Blog
Wedding prep has gotten the better of me this past week. I’ve let the blog go silent for a really, really long time… and it felt weird. I sometimes have some gaps due to vacation days, but I usually fill stuff back in.
But lately? I’ve just been way too tired. The work day rolls into wedding errands, and before I know it it’s sleep, wake up, repeat.
I just spent a while going back and plugging in updates from the past week. I’m not sure what this next week will hold, but consider this a warning – I might not be updating the blog as consistently as I used to.
It feels so very weird to me, but I may just have to let things slide for a day (or a few days).
Ever since I started up my blog, I’ve wanted to be good about updates, about making posts daily. The thing I dislike about most blogs is that they’re started and then left for dead. So many blogs out there have a post from three months ago, and just seem like so many abandoned cars along the side of the information superhighway.
When I started mine, I vowed my blog would be different. I wanted to give people reasons to come back, and to show that I was willing to put in work, in exchange for other people’s time and attention.
I’ll try where I can, but the days just seem to be getting a little busier. The closer I get to the actual wedding date (we’re now under two weeks), the less free time it seems I have.
And I still need to figure out what to do over the honeymoon. I know I won’t be doing full on blog posts, but maybe something quick and remote via Twitter? A few sentences here and there? If I do updates, it won’t be more than a few sentences, a paragraph or two tops. I toyed around with the concept of guest bloggers too.
The idea of going dark for two weeks seems anathema to me. While I definitely want to be enjoying my honeymoon and not spending time doing blog entries, the idea of completely pulling the plug for 14+ days seems extreme. I’m open to ideas here, but not sure what I’ll ultimately do with this site, once I’m actually on a for-real vacation.
