Right about the time that I was reading Paul Jarvis’s excellent piece for TheNextWeb on the virtues of a social media sabbatical, and contemplating taking one of those myself, I had a sabbatical of sorts foisted upon me after I fractured my right elbow during a basketball game on Super Bowl Sunday.
It wasn’t a social media sabbatical, per se (since I posted about my plight on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook). But it was an abrupt and unintentional blogging stoppage. With one arm out of commission, at least for a while, it was difficult for me to type. Also, pain and the weariness that resulted from the injury made me not want to do much of anything.
Which is too bad, since I was prepped to post about the new mStoner book, #FollowTheLeader, which had just come out, and I feel bad about not posting my thoughts about the book. That may still come, but not for a while. My right arm is still in a sling most of the time, but I am able to type a bit. I’m just not quite up to blogging on a regular basis.
So, the blogging sabbatical will continue for the time being, but I’ll still be around on the usual social media hangouts: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and, occasionally, LinkedIn. So hit me up there. But don’t expect a quick response. Everything is taking a little bit longer these days.
