Hello constant reader! You may have noticed I haven’t posted for the past 2 weeks, in spite of my plan to post valuable content for veterinary professionals twice a week. This is multifactorial, but I am not done with the blog yet! I want to continue to post good content, but plan to continue to do so on an ad-hoc basis, rather than a constant basis. I realize this is not a good strategy for blog success, but now that the information is out there on the internet, hopefully future students, interns, residents, and faculty can find it in the archives.
Reasons for decreased blogging frequency:
- I exorcised my demons. I got out the most important, exciting, and passionate topics over the past two years. There is still more to say, of course, but I don’t feel as strongly about making sure everyone knows about it.
- I reacquainted myself with a fun hobby during the pandemic, which is consuming a lot of my creative energy. It takes creative energy for me to write blog posts, so I just have less in the tank due to this hobby.
- Blogs done for two years should start to hit a point where they have a continual positive trend up in page views. As you can see from the graph above, the opposite has happened. Maybe because I posted all the best content early on? Maybe because I haven’t been promoting it as heavily- doing podcasts, posting on the FB PVMA group, etc. So it’s a little disheartening to continue to scream into the void.
- We have reached financial independence, so I don’t have much of a motivation to generate revenue from The Vetducator’s professional services.
I hope you will continue to read and share the information with others! If you ever have a specific question, I would love to hear it and would be strongly inspired to write a post about it. Please reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org.
