What to do?

Well, I am not sure how to put this exactly. I am thinking of taking an extended break from this blog because of competing priorities. I have a wife, two kids, hobbies, work, friends, etc and, quite fairly, this blog is what gets cut when the other priorities come up.

I feel a little torn sometimes since I really am interested in writing about the subject matter and I would like more time to do better research and crafting interesting posts but it just isn't possible with my lifestyle right now.

I don't think I will shut down the blog completely since I believe I will find time to post once in a while and some of the other regular contributors will likely want to post from time to time, but you shouldn't expect the same regular posts that have been a big part of this blog since January 2007.

Well, as a constant lurker here and still at Financial Planning, I want to thank you for the work you've already done - and I'll look forward to any new posts from you. But life does come first!

It's all Chad's fault.
Why Chad, why?

JimTan said...

Yes, but what about the 2010 spring bounce?

Thanks for all the work you've put into it.

Thanks for all the hard work you have done.

Jason said...

Agreed. Nice work. I'll keep checking in as well. It's nice to hear analysis from people that are smarter than me.

Let us know if anything big comes up, but other than that, enjoy your life!

Say it is not so.

We need your charts and excllent analysis. Maybe you could do guest posts on other blogs, or even start charging a small amount per subscriber for your time.

This is a great blog! Best analytics, and that is something which matters a lot. Quality is more important than quantity, so perhaps cut back on the number of posts? I think even just a couple of good posts a months is a great contribution.

I do intend to post a couple of times per month still. I also believe that it is better to provide a few quality posts than lots of lower grade material. I may also just cut and paste press releases for discussion. I have already cut back a fair bit on the regular posting so this really isn't a big change. I just thought it would be fair to let everybody know.

I'll make a few posts now and then but mohican and I have a similar issue: less free time than before.

Torpesco said...

Definitely understandable, but glad to hear there'll still be the odd post now and then.

Thanks for all the great reading.

Thanks for all your effort on this blog. While I don't post comments very often I do follow very closely and I think yours is the only blog that produces any novel insight into the dynamics of vancouver's real estate market. That goes for mainstream media as well, which, quite frankly does a pathetic job. CBC included.

Thanks Mohican for your excellent blog. When I get settled later in the fall I will have more time and should be able to put together a few postings.

Mohican, you and Jesse provide the best local analysis around. Keep it up if you can. A few posts a month will be more than enough!
