I am taking vacation tomorrow and have decided to let my blog go on vacation also. I think it would be great if my blog continued working while I was relaxing, but alas, he has not established himself as an independent entity capable of functioning without me.
I admonish my blog to work harder, to become more like Mark Schaefer’s blog on marketing and social media. Mark took an extended vacation recently, and his blog diligently produced quality content while he was gone. Like a wind-up Tony Robbins doll, possessed of boundless energy and fueled by amazing guest posters such as public relations and marketing consultant Erica Allison, Mark Schaefer’s blog never missed a beat. When I find my blog again in a few days, he’ll probably be sleeping off a 3-day bender, in desperate need of a shave.
It’s obvious that my blog needs to put down the Playstation controller, get off the couch and get to work. Unfortunately, it does not look like that will happen in time for this break, so I am afraid my blog will have to sit silently in the corner for a few days after writing “I will produce quality content regularly” 100 times on the blackboard.
If you subscribe via RSS, please know this blog has not been abandoned. We will return with a post on Wednesday, July 6. Until then, for my readers who are bloggers (especially newer bloggers without a reserve of guest posters in queue), I would love to know:
What you do with your blog when you take a vacation?
And to all of my U.S. readers, best wishes for a happy and safe Independence Day weekend!
