I feel like there should be an altar call now.
You know your relationship with your readers isn't what it should be right now! You know you've lost your love for the blog, and you know that needs to be put right tonight! Come on down to the front, right now! Oh, glooory!
Where did the blog go wrong? Well, life got busy, that's all. I frequently have ideas for blog entries, but never seem to get round to it. A month or two back I had a great idea for a regular blog, and it was great for about two weeks - and then just kinda flopped.
The main thing keeping me busy has been the local website, of which I am editor and sole news reporter. It became a lot more work recently because, to cut a long story short, my colleague and I got stabbed in the back by other colleagues, and now we're on our own. It was a horrid thing to have happen, especially since the guy who did most of the stabbing was an old school chum who I thought was a genuine friend, and it turned out he was prepared to pull everything out from under me without a second thought.
I sure did learn a lesson, though. It's taught me what's really important in business, and that's people, community and integrity. Quite honestly, by breaking off from those colleagues - unpleasant as it was - I think I was saved from being suckered into a model of business that, frankly, I want no part of.
But it's going good: The community is interested in the project, and we're gathering pace.
I'm not going to make any firm promises, but I do intend to try to get back to blogging.
