Does blogging still matter?

Over the past couple of years, I’ve started to slow down on my blogging. I think the reason that I’m slowing down on my blogging is that I just don’t have the time or energy to continue doing it at the pace I was able to before. In the past year I’ve changed jobs, had a daughter, and been more active in going out with my family. This puts a great deal of pressure on my time since I’ve been living life instead of spending it in front of my computer. I think that’s another thing that has changed. I have reduced the amount of time that I spend in front of my real computer and instead use my iPhone and iPad a lot more. I can blog almost as well on my iPad as a computer but it’s harder for me to put pictures on my posts or do formatting.

I guess another real reason I don’t feel like blogging that much is that no one really reads my blog. I still get hits for some of my posts but I wrote most of those a long time ago and I don’t think they are relevant anymore. There are other ways for me to convey my thoughts, Twitter has definitely contributed to this since in about 140 characters I can say what’s on my mind instead of going into a long post. I think I’ll cut my goal to 25 posts this year instead of my usual 100. I think I can crank out at least 2 a month. I think for January this will count as my second post. Maybe my next post will be on my daughters progress or my jailbreak for my iPhone 4S which is awesome btw. Until February!!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I’m really really late in starting my blogging for 2012. I know that for 2011 I didn’t even come close of reaching my normal goal of reaching 100 posts in a calendar year. WordPress was nice enough to give me some stats on how many posts I made and which ones were the most popular. Surprisingly one of my most popular posts was about the time I rented a Ford Flex.

I do t think I’ll make me quota again his year since I’ve been so busy lately but I’ll try and blog a bit more now and again as one permits. Being a new father does cut into my free time a lot and I also have a lot of other things to do around he house and while on the road.

Here’s to a great 2012!
