Earlier today, someone left this comment on my last post:
7 blogs in a month... I almost wonder why I've bookmarked Storefront Rebellion. Have you grown tired of blogging?
Sorry if you don't feel like you're getting your money's worth, Alex. It's true, things have been a little light lately. I think it's just that time of the season—we're nearing the end of the cycle; even at TOC we often find ourselves struggling at this time of year to find ways to write about things that don't sound like something we've already written this season. Sometimes I intentionally refrain from saying things here that I'm itching to say because I'm working it up as forthcoming TOC content. And sometimes, yes, I might have something in mind to write about here, and when I get home at 10 or 11 at night after a full day of writing about theater at work and catching a show on the way home, I open up my MacBook and find that writing more about theater is the last thing I want to do.
But here's the thing: I've been blogging for eight years, long enough to know that that feeling comes and goes. Inspiration and enthusiasm come when they come. That's why I've never promised any posting quota and I don't worry about my pageviews here. If I were charging for content or otherwise trying to run Storefront Rebellion as a business, that would be different, but I've never had any illusions about "monetizing" SR or any other Web 2.0 bullshit like that. There are plenty of other blogs that do the business of regurgitating press releases, if that's what you want. I write here when I feel like I have something to say. It's nice to know I have readers who care enough to call me out, but that isn't going to change. Thanks for asking.
