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.
Just looking ahead at the future of this blog.
We’ll see what happens.
Feel free to give your own input.
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
