Much as I love 52 Weeks of Blog Community - and what it has done for me and this blog over the last year - I must admit, recent events in my online life has somehow made me lose a bit of momentum for this project.
You see, here in my personal blog, I tend to blog about things that occupy my mind a lot in a particular phase of my life - without getting too private. When I started 52WoC, I was brainstorming a lot about different ways to enhance community matters in my "day job" as Community Strategist at b5media. But, now that that's not in my life anymore, it's a bit tougher to come up with ideas, as my mind is now pre-occupied with other matters. That's why I haven't updated this in a while. And, I'm now really wondering what to do next.
Do I retire 52WoC completely, even if we're still 13 projects short of our target of 52? Or, do I just put this on an indefinite hiatus until I regain some of my initial fire for this project? Do I keep going no matter what?
If you would like to help to keep this project going, please let me know one (or more of the following):
- Respond to the question: Retire, Go on Hiatus or Keep Going? AND/OR
- Please share one or more future community-related ideas that we can use for 52WoC in the comments section. Similar to what we did during Suggest a Theme week. AND/OR
- Tell us how 52WoC affected you, your blog, and/or your blogging in general.
If you respond to this, you'll be listed in the 52WoC#39 list of participants. Yes, you don't need to respond to all of the above, although you're most certainly welcome to. But, even if you just respond to one, that's totally fine too.
Now, on to last task's 52WoC#38: Join or Start a Challenge participants -
Thanks again for taking part! You're the ones who help me to keep going with this project, even when I feel like throwing in the towel.
I look forward to all of your feedback!
