I have decided to take an indefinite break from writing new posts.
Because despite some nice comments from a few subscribers, the response in terms of traffic (442 visitors/month), Twitter subscribers (23), and email subscribers (23) has been pretty disappointing to say the least.
So why did it fail?
There are many reasons. But the main ones I think are: (1) it didn’t offer anything new; (2) I tried to cover too many topics; and (3) I didn’t really add a new voice to the blogosphere.
I started enthusiastically enough writing 6 new posts a day. Within a couple of weeks I soon realized I couldn’t keep up that work rate, and still have time for the rest of my business. So I reduced it to one post a day. But the lack of traffic squeezed any enthusiasm out of me that I had left for the blog.
I like to fail fast (this is one of many). And when I realized the site wasn’t going as well as I had hoped, I started to spend more time on new projects.
If by some miracle the site traffic picks up in the future, then I will look at it again.
For now, thank you for supporting the site.
