Trying to Avoid Burnout

Well, maybe I’m already there.

Took my first day off from blogging yesterday,  mainly because I had lost most of the momentum I had going for the past few months.  Even though the holidays are behind us now, I still have a lot of non-web stuff to do and I’m finding myself spending less and less time at the keyboard for personal stuff. 

That might sound like a good thing for most people, but it’s kind of a mixed blessing for me right now.  There are numerous activities and functions that I serve online these days, from my blogs, to site upgrades, discussions on Twitter, posts in Google Reader, self-learning Ubuntu and Rails, and even my photography that I’ve been spreading my free time across lately.  There are days when I can prioritize the small things and feel like I’m making progress, and others when I don’t have the energy.  

I’m afraid I might be in that latter category right now, but hoping to recoupe a little bit and bounce back shortly.  As I mentioned, there are so many neat things I’m pushing myself towards, so I can’t really say I’m “bored.”  It’s really about managing my time, priorities and rolling with the punches when I hit a few snags.

Hopefully I’ll be back here shortly with some more cool updates to my sites and great blog posts soon.  Stay tuned.
