It’s Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week and that you’re ready for a nice, relaxing (and hopefully, cool and dry) weekend.
This will be a different type of post today. I’m here to talk about the state of this blog for a moment.
For those of you who have been around since the beginning, you know that it’s started out as a blog to spread Torah and Judaism. After a while, I decided to make a dramatic shift with the type of posts and content that I wanted to have, and I made this into a ‘Daily Prompt’ blog, where I take an idea from the WordPress Daily Prompt website and then answer the prompt in the form of a post. It’s been going fairly well like this.
My blog has seen some modest growth for the almost 2 years that it’s been in existence (it started in October of 2012), and I’m happy with the growth I’ve seen so far.
However, with that being said…I feel like I need to evaluate where I want the blog to go from here. Yes, I write posts Monday through Friday, and I try to maintain that schedule to the best of my ability. I’m not going to lie when I say that sometimes, I feel that I’m just writing the posts because I have to and not because I want to. I’m starting to feel that it’s more of an obligation to the readers than a want for me. When I feel this way, It’s not a good sign, and it means that I need to take a step back and take a breather.
So, that’s what I’m going to do. I want to be excited when I write for this blog. If you go back a year or so, you’ll see that the posts had much more enthusiasm then they do now. To me the lack of enthusiasm is unacceptable and needs to be corrected. However, in order to do this, I need to cease writing for a while in order to re-gather my thoughts, strengths, and focus.
So with a heavy heart, I need to say that this will be the last post for a while. I’m not really sure when I’ll start posting again, but my goal is by the end of the summer. Rest assured that YDD 2.0 will be better than ever.
Thank you for your understanding, and I look forward to writing for you all again in the future.
Have a great summer everyone!
Until next time!
