Why I Stopped Blogging in 2017 & Why I Will Continue in 2018
It is finally 2018! 2017 was a great year and also proved to be a very challenging year for many. I can’t celebrate 2017 without talking about the tragedies of the hurricanes, Las Vegas, and the unnecessary shootings in Texas. It affected many people I know and love and I hate to see that happen to anyone. Hurricane Harvey was way too close to home.
The Houston Astros won the World Series and I thought hell would freeze over before that happened. The economy was better than we have seen in years and hiring was abundant.
Personally, I traveled to Nicaragua, Nashville, Cancun, New Mexico, and South Dakota for pleasure and Bulls Eye continued to grow. I was relatively quiet on all social media fronts in 2017 other than sharing photographs of my family and was out of the recruiting limelight which I really enjoyed.
I haven’t blogged in 6 months. I did this for many reasons and I want to share with you them. I also want to re-assure you that I will be back in 2018. I have reasons for wanting to write again.
Here are the reasons I quit blogging:
- People are getting nasty. People are getting downright rude on Social Media. I must be getting old, but if you have something to say, say it directly to the person- not just on social media. The ridiculous fights on Facebook. The absurd political comments. For those of you who are out there and “yelling” your opinions- I am calling you a coward. Stop hiding behind social media and pick up the phone if you have something to say. I can guarantee you won’t dare say what you write to someones face. I was just tired of everything on Social Media in 2017.
- I was busy. Like I said, I traveled. I spent time with the ones I love the most. I had fantastic conversations with people that I haven’t talked with in years. Business was better than it has ever been and simply there were not enough hours in the day to blog.
