If you are a regular visitor to this blog, you will have noticed my decreased output of late.
This is partly a result of my holiday mindset, as well as the absence of much meaty political fare on offer.
But I have also been thinking about the time I spend blogging. It is a hobby, something that I do in my spare time. But my spare time is valuable, and there are many other things I could be doing with it.
So for a little while at least I am going to try posting less often. Blogging can be addictive, particularly once you start to attract a following and get the attention of the news media and other bloggers. As a result of this attention I have often felt the need to post at least something every day, and this pressure has sometimes let to the publication of material that should have been killed before birth.
It's not exactly a New Years resolution, but I am going to try posting more infrequently, rather than once or twice a day. With a bit of luck this might mean that what I do post is of a higher quality.
And if the lure of daily blogging proves too much for me after a couple of weeks of this, then so be it.
