I thought this would be a really good time for an article like this. 🙂
I had a really long week, work occupied my weekdays while I spent the weekend as a photographer covering the wedding of a VERY IMPORTANT friend of mine (Congratulations to Raysonick! Manager and co-founder of the paintball team I’m in.) and also preparing presentation slideshows for the wedding dinner, 2 slideshows with over 400 photos.
I really wish I had contents ready for publication. 🙁
It’s entirely up to you and your intention for your blog. If you’re fine with going MIA for a while, like having extended periods of not having new posts, then it’s fine.
If you have a schedule that you intend to maintain, then perhaps you should consider doing so.
For me, I always try to have additional articles ready to post, call them “BACKUP ARTICLES” if you may. I’m sure many of you still remember my 2-weeks absense last year that lead to the article – 2 Weeks Without New Articles. 🙂
Running Out Of Ammo
This time around, it was unfortunate for me as I’ve used up all of my “backup articles” over previous weeks where I was dead busy with work and event coverage such as the Malaysia International Gourmet Festival 2008’s Gala Launch.
With so many things to accomplish in my project pipeline, I had no time to prepare any new article either. 🙁 On the other hand, my other blogs such as Buurps.com where there are co-writers, the articles are pretty much ready and all it takes is about 30 minutes for a bit of editing before new articles are published.
Good To Have.
While backup articles aren’t mandatory, it’s always good to have a few just for emergencies. Just spend a day or 2 (like say during weekend?) to prepare masses of articles if you have the luxury of allocating time for it.
Do you like the idea of having “backup articles”? 🙂
How many of you bloggers actually practice this?
