My coach sounded alarmed. “Is it true you haven’t been blogging?”
I had to admit it was true. There are more posts up at my personal blog, but come summer, my blogging pace slows.
It’s not that I don’t have posts in progress. I’ve chronicled the administrative roadblocks I ran into while getting my interns on the payroll. I’ve taken notes at CSR seminars, non-profit conferences, venture capital awards, and more. We’ve had a few major wins of our own. And I will post about all this – soon.
But at the end of the day, if you want to add something more to your life – in my case, enjoying our neighborhood swimming pool and a family vacation – something’s gotta give.
Next summer? I'll plan for my blogging break – and admit it freely, like Marc Gunther did in his post, “August.”
My post might be called “June” or “June and July.” Because now that it’s August, I’m back. It’s time to prepare for closing out a great year, and to help our clients achieve their yearly goals. With new worries about the economy, it reminds me a lot of the fall of '08. But we made great things happen back then, and we'll do it again.
What's going on with your summer plans? Do you ever blog about it?
