Temporary Downsizing

Hi everyone. Just a quick little post today – you may have realised that I haven’t posted in nearly a week, so here’s the deal. I’m pretty exhausted right now! I’ve been doing on average 6 posts a week for a few months now, and on top of that working an average of over 90 hours each fortnight at the same time. On top of that I have loads of video editing, story writing and shooting I’ve been doing for my other passion and well, it’s just unsustainable!

So, my plan was for a hiatus, and last week I felt like it was time. I was thinking a month or so completely offair from the blog. I could still write when I had free time and have a backlog of stuff to post. However, despite not posting I kept checking the hits, and despite not posting for five days, I still had one of the best weeks I’ve ever had – I think the third best. Which you know, was pretty ironic. And part of me didn’t want that momentum to go to waste.

So, I decided to compromise. I will, at least til my New Zealand trip by which time I need to have all my editing done by, just post once or twice a week. Just so people remember I’m still here! Lol.

So that’s where I’m at! I’m a busy boy. 2015 is catching up with me. Who knows what I’m talking ‘bout?

 

Willis?

 

Sorry. May the Journey Never End!

  1. I will! I was worn down after 3 a week last year and cut down to one non sponsored post a week. Don’t know how I could do 6. You’re a trooper man. Hope to keep keeping up with your travels as you go!

  2. I already find it hard to post regularly, to post almost everyday while you are working full time is really kudos to you..I think that it’s always good to take some time away..for you to refresh yourself and who knows, you may be churning out even better posts next time. Enjoy your break and your holiday! 🙂

  3. Totally understand – You did 6 posts per week! That’s a lot!! I am working 40H/5D plus following some courses. Three posts max in a week for my case or one post at minimum 🙂 Have a good break and looking forward until your return! 🙂

  4. I guess a blog should not be a burden and I think it is also nothing you get judged for. So I think it is very good when you take a break and just enjoy a littlebit. I can totally understand you. 😀

  5. Man, you should definitely slow down. Otherwise, you will burn out! Try to post twice a week as I do (each Monday and Thursday) and it’s more than enough. Trust me, you will have more time to interact with readers and you will not get so tired! 🙂 Get back to us!!!

  6. Agree 6/week is a lot, most readers can’t absorb all that and you can risk tuning them out for at least half your material.
    I’d space it out a bit.
    That said I always like your posts 🙂
