Is the end in sight?

Posted in Blogging by 200

For this blog, I mean.

Lately I’ve been wondering where this blog is going and whether it has anywhere left to go. It gets that finding something to post about is more a chore these days, and is more difficult.

I’ve been blogging for nearly 7 years, longer than almost any other police blog out there. For nearly 5 of those 7 years I have posted every single day of the year, including Christmas days, holidays, days when I’ve felt like shite or days when I’ve so much real life stuff to attend to that there is hardly a minute in the day to whip up a post.

In all that time I’ve never managed to entice more than 1 to 6 comments, so it’s never been a really popular blog. I find myself wondering whether I have just said all I need to say. I’m not sure there are many more ways to demonstrate that this job is fucked without constantly repeating myself.

I’m getting involved in more things outside work now, which leaves me even less time sitting in front of a computer screen. I’m torn at the moment between giving up all together or just returning to the occasional entry.

I thought it might be nice to make it through to September, just to get the 5 years with a post every day under my belt, so maybe I’ll do that and see how it goes.
