Hi readers, I have good news and bad news.
Oh, you want the bad news first? Sure, I’d like to get it out of the way too.
So, bad news: I’m taking a hiatus from blogging. I don’t have a specific endpoint yet, but I think I’ll be posting regularly again in 2-3 months.
Why, you ask? I have a few reasons. First, it’s time for a change. Since August 2011, I’ve written over 500 blog posts for Words From The Sowul. And every 100 posts or so, it’s gone through a new iteration. I believe these adjustments in course are keeping the blog fresh, and my commitment to it alive.
I’ve also been taking an online course (through DIY MFA) about author platform, and I have some new ideas for this next iteration, including a few cosmetic changes to the site. Mostly, I’m looking to create stronger content that’s better directed to my readers’ wants and needs (based on feedback, metrics and social media).
So even though I’ll be absent from your blog feed for awhile, you can look forward to more and better content when I return. Sound good?
Okay, time for the good news. [Read more…]
