Taking somewhat of a hiatus for now, but we’ll be back!

The first thing you learn when you start a blog is that it’s more work than you expected.  Content is king here, and unless you are constantly posting new things, it’s difficult to keep a loyal audience coming back.

But here’s the rub: When you have to work for a living,  and pay attention to the rest of your life, you realize that constantly feeding a blog like this just isn’t practical. Add to that trying to run a campaign for Ward 5 Councilor, and … well, you get the point. This is my 132nd post, meaning I’ve averaged more than 22 posts per month since putting this blog here. It’s been rewarding and enjoyable, but also time-consuming.

It’s why today I come to you to say that you can expect Eye On Peabody to go on a bit of a hiatus. Not a total hiatus, mind you, since I will still post when something grabs my attention. But until the city election is over in November, the posts here will become less frequent than they have in the past.

Here’s what you can expect, though, in the coming months:

  • I’ll definitely post when I can, and especially when it comes to major news or issues that affect Peabody.
  • I’ll definitely, as promised,  post anyone’s candidate statements
  • And, if anyone in our audience would like to write, I’ll definitely consider other peoples’ submissions.

And just so the Outfront Guy doesn’t go insane, I’ll also continue to approve and post to the comments sections.

As for me, I’ll write when I can.

We’ve had more than 54,000 site visits, and almost 1,600 comments since launching last November. The response has been overwhelming, and I’m definitely grateful.

Thanks for reading. Talk to you soon!

    I have been very happy with your sites commentaries and ,for the most part,have had some say in its content. It hasn’t been my intent to hurt anyone or become a problem for anyone in doing so. Don’t worry about OG . He wont go insane while the site is slow until the fall. I’m in hopes he will continue to be good in his description of the city as being bright instead of dark and his future comments being the same. Good luck in the upcoming election .
