So some of you have noticed that I have gone from blogging 5-6 times a week, with discipline, to weeks without a post.
There is no particular reason, but here are some thoughts:
1. I am simply busier now.Not only am I working 50-60 hour weeks, I also now have 10-15 hours of "take-home" work every week as well. ?There is simply just a lack-of-time and lack-of-energy to write these days. Additionally, I just took on a pretty big restaurant consulting gig that will last 3-4 months, am doing some recipe R&D at work, serve on the Board at my church, preach 8-10 times a year, and serve as President of the Board at MACC Charities. ?In other words, when I am not doing those things, I like to do nothing except sleep, share a nice bottle of wine with friends, or get with family and friends.2. Facebook & Twitter are great.I am finding that both Facebook and Twitter are more effective social-networking tools than a blog these days. ?People interact more and there is a better conversation — and after all, that is kind of the point. ?Plus both Facebook and Twitter take less time, are more immediate, and in many ways fulfill my vision for social networking platforms better: an open window into someone's life or an organization. ?It is more spontaneous, honest, raw, etc.3. But…I am not taking "Faith Autopsy" down… it is tells my story and an important (and mostly painful) part of my history. ?And I fully reserve the right to start blogging again… either once in a blue moon or regularly… entirely at my own whim, lol.
So if you aren't friends with me on Facebook, you should be. ?And if you don't follow me on Twitter, you should.
