BI 056: Are You Still Having Fun?

Play

In case you were wondering what happened to the Buck Inspire Podcast, I have an answer for you. Last time I was in Las Vegas covering the PLUSH preview show, hitting the after party with Nick Cannon, and taking the Zappos tour. I managed to stick to my blog post schedule and even created a location independent in Las Vegas podcast. However, it came at a high price as I almost threw in the towel due to burnout. Can anyone say Seth Godin and the Dip? I returned home, got back into my routine, and pulled myself together. I faced two big questions.

Am I still having fun?
Are you doing it because you want to or because you have to?

Tune in to my emotional roller coaster while I was on my Las Vegas vacation.

    I do feel compelled to keep cranking out posts. Even when I’ve slacked off during vacations and relied on guest posts or used somewhat weak posts that I prepared ahead of time, I’ve seen visits go down and sensed my blog influence declining. Then toss in my weird posts on weird topics and I see a big change from where my blog used to be. But I’m enjoying my posts more and that’s what’s important to me. In the past I’ve prescheduled posts for my vacation periods. In the upcoming several weeks I might just shut down for a week or two. Knowing me I won’t, but I’ve been considering it.

    I constantly ask myself that question and more! I think we go in cycles and there are ups and downs to everything. My theory is to never make a decision unless I wait 3 days. I find that things often change in just a couple of days. For example, I may have writer’s block for a day or two. I may have a poor response to one of my articles. There are many more instances that I could easily react to negatively, so I just wait 3 days to see if anything changes. It usually does!
