Maybe I am starting to suffer a little bit of blogging burnout, where I am just not as "infatuated" with staying up late and writing blog articles until 1am as much as I used to be. Or, maybe I finally found a PC game that calls to me so much I tend to want to play it more than blog (which would be the first time in 2 years this has happened).
Since I picked up Kings Bounty: Armored Princess I have been thinking less about blogging and more about just playing the game with every spare moment I have lately. This game satisfies RPG and strategy elements and is one of the most fun games I have played in years.
Combine this new game with the fact that all of my blogs are suffering huge traffic losses since Google Instant search went in, and I have already seen my earnings plummet from Google AdSense and less offers coming in has taken its toll on my blogging enthusiasm as well.
My sites have pretty much jumped 20 months back in time as far as traffic is concerned, and I am just about at a point where I have to find new tactics and methods to bring it back.
The best thing about blogging is that when you start suffering fatigue you can stagger out a little, write at least one post a week instead of every day and sites always get better with age (the aging of a site helps improve its SEO, SERP and PageRank so this can sometimes be a good thing). Now is also a good time to reach out to other potential niches, guest blog and be more active in the online community.
In the meantime, I will just spend some extra time gaming and helping my wife with a new project we are working on that will be revealed in the future. This will be a both online and offline venture business that we plan on running together.
