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.
Thinking about a blog fast?
The Spirituality of blogging
The Spirituality of NOT blogging
I think the Technorati drop is something more than blog-fasting. Almost everyone I talked to (myself included) have drop alomost the exact number of links. Odd…
Anyway, look forward to see you process your thoughts.
When you don’t have that many technorati or google links, it’s a whole lot easier to not lose them 🙂 I’m doing a food fast right now, but I think the key is not what you lose but rather what you come out of the fast with… Family is much more important than your blog 🙂
Glad you are back. You were missed
Welcome back my fellow Aussie 🙂
Yeah missed you – good to have you back.
