Rizal, who made the little widget that folks use to read this blog from beginning to end, remarked that
Patrick McKenzie used to post daily but I guess his business has stabilized and he’s moved on to other things
There is a nugget of truth there, but to give the rest of the story: The business is mostly stable, but I keep tweaking things and, when I have time to both tweak and talk, I try to talk about them. Hopefully later this week I’ll be able to talk about why I just paid $12 for one day on the Content Network and tentatively think I liked it. (That should be Hopefully #2. Hopefully #1 is that the positive ROI continues for longer than a day.)
The big reasons my posting has slipped:
#1 — Went home for a month and spending time with my family was much more important to me than the uISV. (I typically only get to see them once a year, and don’t know when the next time I’ll have a month of leisure is.)
#2 — I came back to Japan and immediately got thrown into the salaryman thing, which I got back from today at about 9:00 pm — unseasonably early! (This is what I get for joining the private sector and leaving my cushy government job. Oof. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to get to bed to make it up at 6:30 in the morning to get to work on time and do it again…)
#3 — I generally don’t like posting to say “Well, I’ve got nothing to say”. When I have more stuff to say, rest assured, there will be more and (God and day-job business conditions permitting) more regular posting.
Rizal praises me as a “hero of the MicroISV blogging community”. I’m not a hero by any means, but I’m glad folks find some of the ramblings around here to be of use. That is one major reason I keep writing them.
