You guys have really rocked the discussions with multiple 100+ comment posts this year! You’d think this was a big blog or something. I can’t begin to thank you enough for your contributions and what I’ve learned from you. A post recap of 2010 is a good exercise to not only discover what worked best for some guidance in the new year, but to also give new readers a chance to catch up via one easy page.
There are literally 36 posts in the queue for 2011, with some of them just screaming to get out. Why has the queue gotten so large? Two things mainly:
1) Using a wine terminology, it’s good to give each post a chance to breathe. Often times there’s so much discussion that to post a new post the very next day feels off. This is the main reason why I don’t post everyday. A topic needs to be sussed out thoroughly before we move on. I like to respond individually to all comments who require a response. Also, I love reading all the other great blogs out there every other day.
2) I guess I just like to write a lot. There is always something ridiculous going on in the world that needs addressing. If you are a blogger who is afraid of running out of ideas, don’t be. Just read the newspaper, turn on the TV, or go out and socialize with friends. Remember, if you can speak forever, you can blog forever!
For 2011, I probably should only have a queue 10 deep because I’ve found multiple times that I forget what I wrote just a month ago, and sometimes the topic gets stale or irrelevant. Let’s add that to the blogging new year goal! Happy reviewing.
