More than halfway into the second decade of CM I am again pondering quitting. This is something I have been doing since before the tenth anniversary.
- Over seven years ago: Who do you write for when your audience disappears?
- Nearly five years ago to the day: The slow death of a blog.
- Nearly three years ago: To blog or not to blog?
It is the history that makes it hard to just quit.
What to do with all the reviews, interviews and opinions offered over the years?
But if I am honest with myself, I don’t get much joy out of posting and there certainly is no interaction or traffic on the blog anymore. I can probably get review copies just posting to NetGalley, Goodreads, Amazon, etc.
It also bugs me a little that quitting would feel like failure; reflect on my character in some way. I always wanted to prove that I could improve my focus and writing and offer quality book reviews here again. But the motivation just isn’t there. I’m not sure people read personal blogs anymore anyways.
I’m going to ponder things a bit more but it seems depressing to limp along for months again and come back and read another “Is this blog dead?” post.
