Random Ramblings #illumedati 1


Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. I realize I didn’t post anything on Friday last week for Finance Fridays, which I’m sorry about. However, let me just ramble today a little.

So right now we’re in the middle of a change in schedules at work so I’ve been working weird shifts and it kind of threw off my schedule. That’s not an excuse though, I should have written my Friday article — it just didn’t happen.

Today is more of a reflective kind of post for the blog in general kind of a mini State of the Blog Post. I’ve been writing this blog for a few years now and I’ve really enjoyed it. For some just the process of writing is good and I like to share my experiences with everyone. If you ask my wife, she’ll just say I like to talk a lot — so I guess this is kind of my outlet to do it.

However, right now I’ve come to kind of a crossroads with what to do with this blog. I don’t just want to rehash old content every year, so I was thinking of cutting things back to Monday and Friday only with a random Whatever Wednesdays post. I’ve actually been considering it for awhile, but I’ve always been able to come up with something random to write about.

Also, my daughter is now 6 years old, and she seems to enjoy writing too. I was thinking of letting her write some stuff every month. Don’t expect too much, she’ll probably only write a sentence or two — or at most a short story but then I can post it here so we can watch her writing grow over the course of time. I could do something similar for Lucas when he gets older too.

Anyways, in general I’m not really sure of what direction I want to take this blog. I’ve revisited monetization over and over, but it doesn’t really appeal to me to manage something like that. Like a typical doctor, I just want things outside of medicine to just be done for me.

I would like to continue things, but I’m not sure to what extent. I do have some time off coming up in July so maybe I’ll try to take some time to figure stuff out a little better.

TL;DR

Just looking ahead at the future of this blog.

We’ll see what happens.

    The consistency with which you’ve been writing is remarkable, Sensei.

    I would not blame you if you were ready to switch things up and slow down a bit; I’ve pondered doing the same at times.

    Go ahead and do whatever works best for you and your family, and it will be the right choice

    Cheers!
