My new job is amazing. I’m the online editor for two websites (unofficially, I work for three and possibly more). This means I repurpose content from the print issues, assign new content, edit it, post it, research images for each post, work with marketing to help develop sponsorship opportunities, work with ad sales to come up with plans for advertising clients, and I manage all the social media for both sites. And, naturally, it all has to be SEO’d to death.
I spend my day on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Google Plus, which is a dream in so many ways, but by the time my work day ends I’m so burned out on social media, that I don’t even log into my own blog. Forget about even glancing at Twitter or Facebook.
The sad thing about that is, I’ve learned more about blogging and social media in the past few months than I have in the entire seven years of blogging and I’m too lazy to put it into practice on my own blog. I’ve spent most of last week in Boston (which is a great city that I want to go back to!) at a seminar for digital publishing and marketing, and I’ve been excited to get back to work and put a lot of what I learned into practice.
I miss this space, so I have to find the time to come back and write.
Last summer I decided that I would stop writing about yoga here and I created a new blog called The Modern Yogini. But it turns out that I can’t separate yoga from my life.
It also turns out that I barely have time for one blog, never mind two.
So I’ll probably put the other one on the back burner until I start teaching more, and I’m going to make the time to write here again.
I know…famous last words.
