Blogs were great for folks who were doing something new and challenging: grad school, new faculty, new jobs, new positions, new hobbies, and so on. The day to day of most peoples’ lives, once they’ve gotten pretty good at whatever they’re doing, is less interesting to write about and read about, both. There’s less to process day to day, and often, more mundane stuff keeping one busier.
I don’t have enough self-awareness to notice, so help me out here. Has my blog gotten boring since I got tenure and sailed into a more established, staid, mundane life? Do I need to add more pizazz? What would that be?
I need to know when it’s time to let it go.
