- a pause or break in continuity in a sequence or activity.
“there was a brief hiatus in the war with France”
In my last post here I suggested there was a risk of burnout and that, sadly, came to pass. I was doing too much and neglecting other aspects of my life as running forums took the fore. Bad times.
Running two forums – well, trying to get two forums off the ground as well as working full time, with a young family and personal demands just didn’t work. It all got too much and I stepped away. Necessary, really. I’ve been off the forums and off social media for a few weeks. Naturally, this has meant that the forum has stalled. I cannot expect others to pick up the slack. Why should they if it looks as if the owner of the forum has abandoned it. I have not abandoned it. Far from it.
A break was probably necessary and my return will see a different focus. I can’t go all in like I did. There are other concerns which I have outside of the internet. I need to put my life first and the forum second.
A custom style is in development for Strategy Gaming Network and should be ready some point this month. When it is ready I will begin again promoting the forum, visiting daily, posting daily, and updating the content to keep up with new releases as they come. What we have at the moment is a really good basis for a successful small forum. I need to be consistent with content rather than smashing as much in as possible in a short space of time. Small updates regular and often beats a splurge of posts followed by periods of inactivity.
So that there is the plan. Now to put it into action.
