Bloggers block

aka digital constipation.

I made a rod for my own back by writing the words "in my next post", as I suddenly suffered from an inability to actually write the next post.

Blogging regularly and attracting the attention of the world is not easy, especially when I also work, have a family, and try to have a life beyond work and the blog.

I drafted the post, and was unsatisfied with it; rewrote it and was unsatisfied. Put it aside, rewrote it and as still unsatisfied. Wrote a completely new post, and didn't like it.

By this point, I knew I as missing other matters I wanted to comment upon, but or the first time ever I couldn't get a post I need to make to make sense.

So I took a break of a couple of days, got the new office website officially up and running, and partially rewritten, and although it is not perfect, it is nearly there. Concentrated on getting it registered with the search engines - I have got a fairly good record in getting all our websites very high up Google, and this week saw the new sites jump up the listings, which has had a beneficial knock-on effect on business.

For various (commercially confidential) reasons we have developed a (confidential) professional specialism that is attracting a lot of new clients from all across the UK, and which clearly demonstrates that a good website and a good Google ranking is a way of generating a lot of business. And that our location is an advantage, not a hindrance.

Back to the blog today, and I looked at my various drafts, and realised that version 3, written on Wednesday, needed one small tweak and it was ready. Made the adjustment, posted the blog, and away we go. Back to normal.
