That is the question.
Since my last post almost 2 months ago, my schedule has spun into high gear and I just haven't had the time to sit down, think, and write.
Today I felt like I was starting to catch up on life, so I thought I might blog something short and sweet. But when I logged on and looked at my blog, I saw what they call "stats." After almost a year of blogging I only have 20 followers. My last entry had only 30 readers. So either I have to step it up and put in a whole lot more effort to be relevant, interesting and follower-worthy, or I have to give it up and say bye to the blog. I certainly have more than enough projects to fill my days, so letting go wouldn't leave me lacking fulfilment in any way. But I have to say that many times I really enjoyed blogging. Sometimes my head would be filled with stories and anecdotes that I couldn't wait to share. It was fun to see my life through the eyes of my readers...and insightful too. I learned a bit about myself, and I learned a bit about others who chose to comment, compliment or commiserate when they could relate.
And thus the dilemma.
Maybe it's just called writer's blog (I mean, block!). Or maybe I need a blog with a better interface...you know, buttons to click, links to follow, gorgeous graphics, give-aways, video clips, music and reader interaction. Or maybe I should forget the blog and write a book...no technology needed there!
So what is the answer to my multiple-choice question? Maybe I'll sleep on it...
