I think life will almost always be all about trade-offs.
You can excel at your super competitive career, but the trade-off is that you have to give up a personal life. You can have more free time, but the trade-off is that you work a boring job. You can have the great job in the city, but the trade-off is that you’re left with less time and less to blog about.
Okay, I may just be referring to myself on that last one.
But seriously, in the last couple of weeks I’ve found myself struggling to come up with topics. Nothing too blog-able happens to me during the day, though I guess that could be considered a good thing. At least I haven’t had any train horror stories…yet.
And it doesn’t help that I’ve been blogging about my life as part of a freelance assignment, so even the things I would share have already been contracted away.
Although I don’t feel too bad about that particular trade-off when the checks come in the mail.
I think a lot about why I maintain this blog. I don’t think anyone out there would be too distraught if I stopped, but at the same time, I think I would miss it.
Don’t fret; I’m not stopping. I just need to be more organized. I need to look a bit more consciously at the potential stories in my life.
But I think I will be cutting back on my post frequency. Obviously I haven’t been maintaining the once-a-day schedule I once was.
Hopefully, though, that will mean the posts you do get are of a higher quality.
And that sounds like a pretty reasonable trade-off, right?
