No, I haven’t quit the Responsible Marketing blog to ump League League games.
Well, not completely.
I wrote five posts a week in 2008, but due to a number of factors, this is my fifth post this month.
Here’s why you’ve been hearing less from me lately:
My workload at Outsource Marketing
While I like to write, I really love doing Responsible Marketing. I’ve been busy with some cool social media, Web planning and naming projects lately. It’s been fun, and I’ve thrown myself into it.
After some soul searching at the end of last year, I’ve been working to regain some balance in my life. I’m not quite there yet, but my head is clearer and I know I’m on the right path.
Yes, helping out with my son’s Little League team is part of that balance. 🙂
Social media is eating some of my blog posts
Although my social media activity has lightened up a bit, the prediction by some social media gurus that social media would cannibalize blog content has been true for me.
I’ve found myself sharing shorter, easily digestible things I might have shared here last year via social media.
Blogger information overload
I’m beginning to appreciate the challenges reporters, editors and full-time bloggers face. I’m receiving more news releases, free books and invitations to interview people than I can shake a stick at.
I have a huge backlog of interesting content, and I’ll do my best to share the best of it with you.
But I value your time, Responsible Marketer, and I’ll only post on topics I’m confident you’ll derive real value.
So that’s it. Now you know where I’ve been.
Keep an eye out for some new stuff in the coming days. I’m looking forward to getting the conversation going again!
