We officially declare the Squash hiatus as over.
It’s almost been a week between posts but I figured this was the regression, Squash had to have. Looking back, Monty was pretty much on the money here. I think I went through a pretty bad case of blog burn-out, brought on by a maniacal greed for traffic. (Quite enjoyed Kevin from Pandora^2’s description of me as a ‘mister johnny come lately blog addict’ – didn’t need the 12 step program, though, just went cold turkey).
Anyway, I half wrote a post on some of the thoughts/conclusions/musings I’ve been going through during my period of near-abstinance which I’ll post sometime in the next few days when I finish it. However, suffice to say, I’m going to try and swear off my WordPress blog stats for a little while.
Blog burn-out wasn’t the primary reason for the hiatus, though. My inactivity has largely been down to Kickstart 2006, a media conference held by my company MediaConnect which has prompted a bit of discussion around the Aussie blogosphere this last week. We had around 170 delegates including the majority of Australia’s technology media come together across three days at the wonderfully lush Hyatt Regency Coolum on the Queensland Sunshine Coast this week. Our little team absolutely worked their butt off to pull the event off and it was an amazing success! But more on Kickstart in my next post.
