Yes, I Deleted My Blog. Here’s Why!

by | Jun 11, 2019

It’s been several years since I wrote my first blog post, which by the way, went viral.

But that has long gone.

That post served its purpose at the time, which was to explain in a simple manner how to synchronise Hotmail with your mobile phone. Technology moved on very quickly after that (smartphones arrived), meaning that it almost stopped attracting traffic.

So I deleted it.

Since then, I deleted several more blog posts. In fact, most of them, despite the fact that some were still attracting traffic and comments.

But why?

In a word, clarity.

 

The Need for Clarity

Over time, this quality became more relevant. With my various services on offer, my blog was too far diverse.

I wondered how many of my readers and social network connections really knew what I did for a living.

I also wondered how many of my readers and social network connections really knew the purpose of my blog.

Then I even questioned myself…

So I got clear. I put myself through the same discovery process that I share with my consulting clients, and almost started afresh.

I lost most of my blog and comments. But I gained momentum and renewed enthusiasm.

And I want to share it with you.

Enjoy my (new) blog, and let me know what you think.
