It’s been a while since my last post. I haven’t abandoned my blog (and I hope you haven’t either), but lately it seems that every time I settle down to finessing or finishing one of the many articles that have been languishing in my drafts folder I am inevitably distracted by some pressing professional commitment or personal obligation. I’ve also taken on an unprecedented number of projects this year (and for the next) and while they’ve proven to be fun and extremely rewarding, they too have occupied much of my time.
This frenetic pace shows no signs of abating – which got me thinking about the way forward, as far as this blog is concerned. Of course it occurred to me that I might have bitten off more than I can chew in recent months! But it also occurred to me that part of the challenge of maintaining consistent blog output is perhaps less about time management and more related to the fact that many of the themes I’m attempting to tackle with this blog are just too epic to unpack, simply.
This would have been so much easier if I chose to launch a food blog instead!
And, on a related note, I thought that a solution might be to offer up smaller (though hopefully no less substantial) bite size morsels in between the more lengthy articles and commentary – as kind of mini installments in an ongoing series.
And so I’ve assigned myself some holiday homework. I plan to make the most of this more serene and reflective (for me anyway) time of year to dispense with these bite-sized essays.
