Taking Weekends Off

Just wanted to drop a quick note here – I won’t be doing Saturday posts anymore. I already gave up on Sunday posting back in January and I mentioned I might go down to a much healthier 5 day schedule. So this is what I’m doing right now.

This doesn’t really mean anything negative. Rather, I noticed that over time I’ve been putting more and more thought, research and time into every post here. More often than not I’m actually trying to write something that’s either meaningful, interesting or worth discussing rather than just posting 3 paragraph rants apropos the newest hot issue found via digg or slashdot. More often than not I’m trying to post original material here rather than reiterating stuff that you can easily find elsewhere. I don’t know if this is gradual improvement in quality, but it does tend to be more time consuming. So the drop in posting frequency is good for my sanity, and will hopefully let me queue up posts, and perhaps even proofread all of them before they go live. :P

I don’t think I will drop below 5 days, but perhaps that will turn out to be necessary in the future. For now though, you can expect to see posts appearing here Mon-Fri usually between 11am and noon (although Google reader doesn’t pick it up until few hours later).

    Good idea. I really appreciate effort. As I’ve subscribed about 200
    newsfeeds, it can be really annoying reading about one topic ten
    times.

    Regards,

    Yeah, I know what you mean. My cousin once saw me scrolling down my list of feeds in Google Reader and she was like “Holy Shit, no wonder you don’t get anything done on time. You are to damn busy reading all these blogs.” :P

    Hey Luke,

    I enjoy your posts so much I’d hate for you to burn out. I’d much prefer you cut down to 5, 4, or X substantive posts a week than stop producing or just rehash the contents of your newsreader.

    You’ve been blogging good stuff for years, and 5 days a week is still a crazy schedule. You should always take the breaks you need to be able to keep up the great work!
