I happened to run across this blog post yesterday. It is called "Where Do We Go From Here?" by Kristin of the blog B@H.
Some bloggers are finding themselves stepping back because of the editorial constraints and calendar photo shoots to be done for sponsors and advertisers.
They are trying to mix family and home and editorial deadlines. And they are oftentimes finding that they simply cannot do it all and stay sane.
Yes, I need to make money just like the next blogger. And I'm not under the gun like some of the more popular/younger bloggers. But I feel their pain nonetheless.
Are we stuck on a conveyor belt, trying to churn out what we think we're supposed to be blogging about? Have we lost control of what we really want for our blogs?
Can we take back the blog? as Kristen writes.
I think it is an important and interesting post to read whether you are a blogger, reader, or both.
I'd love to know your thoughts about Kristin's very thought-provoking post in the comments.
