I was just checking into my favorite real estate blog because a friend recently emailed asking where I went and noticed I have neither posted nor commented in 3 MONTHS! That, in the blogging universe, is an eternity and I noticed my stats have dropped (not surprisingly as others have continued keeping up their blogs while I went off to rehab, got over my dts, etc.)
The fact of the matter is, I was spending a lot of time on A/R for a very intensiver burst and commenting frantically everyday for a while, over-extended, then slipped off. Don't know if this happens to many (and since I see so many of my favorite bloggers have done a bazillion posts since then, am wondering how those who are more balanced keep themselves from falling into the morass.)
If you've been blogging for a year or more, what is your approach to staying balanced and on-message? How do you work your blog life and keep it from overwhelming the rest of your business?
