Prioritising doing over bloging

A few people have commented that I've “gone dark“ on my blog. This year I'm trying to prioritise doing over blogging. I have a number of interesting ideas I'd like to realize, and a finite amout of time to do it. If that means I only drop a few posts each year like the “SQL Server Management Studio Add-In Writing” one that haven't been covered much before, and don't post the thousandth echo chamber link to “wow, now I can single-step debug into the .NET framework” then the world will probably be a better place. We'll see how it all pans out.

I can't believe that a guy who averages 2 or 3 posts a month can then turn around and say that he's gunna prioritize doing over blogging Smile

Hope things are well Joseph!


I guess I've been feeling this way for the last few months, as my post count shows.


I believe that your heart has to be in blogging to do it.  Some people post often, some not so often - but I can enjoy all of their blogs.

Compare frequent posters such as 37Signals, Seth Godin, or Read/Write Web who post many times per day with less frequent posters such as yourself or even Leon Bambrick.  Now, would I prefer your blogs if you posted as regularly as those others?  Doubt it.  In fact, I'll bet that if Leon tried to post as regularly as Seth then I'd have a lesser experience from reading it.

My advice... if it feels good... do it!
