Reflections on my blog fast

Blog-Fast: As you know, I haven’t blogged for 2 weeks and month before that was scarce. It was not really a planned blog-fast but rather an attempt to focus on my family needs while traveling and get stuck into some really important events that we were at in France, Poland and Germany.

Losses: I have lost over a 150 permanent links in the past 2 weeks. They tend to slip off when blogging ceases or slows down. This drastically reduces my google-ranking and is a price one pays when blog-fasting.

Gains: Apart from strengthening my family and marriage, I have emerged from this blog-fast refreshed and ready for a new season of blogging, with different perspective and the desire to rethink my blog, especially in regard to its economic function. Tell you what i come up with later.
