Happy 10th Blog-Anniversary!
Posted by Tobold's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2013, 12:30 am
Ten years ago on the day I wrote my first blog post. Since then I wrote 4500 posts, more than one per day on average. The blog got nearly 6 million visitors over the years. I still get over 1,000 visitors a day, plus an unknown number of people reading my blog via the RSS feed. But all that is going to change.

I have decided to stop blogging on a daily basis.

That is not to say that I will abandon this site. But a blog is usually a compromise between a personal journal and writing for an audience. Keeping up a daily schedule was part of that compromise which I did for my readers. And today I think that compromise isn't worth it any more. Writing at least one blog post every day is a lot of work, and ten years of history have shown that one does get very little appreciation out of that. I've had enough. I think I did my part and don't owe anyone anything here.

So from now on I will only continue with the kind of posts I was always writing for myself, my personal journal of game activity: The journal of my D&D campaign after each session, or similar journal posts when I start playing a new game and want to log my thoughts about it. Not sure if I'll keep posting general opinion posts here from time to time in the future, or whether I'll move those to Google+ +Tobold Stoutfoot . Expect posting frequency on this blog to go way down. I'm not even sure yet whether I'll keep the comments section.

Time to move on.
