Hard Facts, Indeed
As I approach my fourth year of blogging, I find that I'm beginning to tire of it.
It was a great release when I was new to Central Indiana and didn't have many friends, or political or professional contacts. That's not an issue any more.
I recently took a look at the stats for my blog and discovered that my traffic is down. Way down. A steady decline since my campaign ended.
I also find that the nature of my work is such that I keep my trap shut on some things that I see as an insider, because although I have strong feelings about things, I would jeopardize my business relationships. Things I have said 2-3 years ago are lurking and probably could hurt my business if they are to be discovered. Do I self-censor and delete? It's the smart thing to do, for sure.
So, at the end of the day, if I'm not excited by it, and readers aren't there, I can hardly see a point. Am I wrong? I'm sure other bloggers have felt this. Tell me about it.
