Gumby's Blog is Back

    Mon, 2008-06-23 14:06 — Gumby

    Gumby is posting to his original blog again!

    http://www.onthemat.com/gumby/

    It’s been awhile since I’ve done any writing in this space. There are a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, I’m lazy and after spending most of my time updating the regular site (www.onthemat.com duh) I don’t have a lot in the creative gas tank by the time it came to update the blog.

    Secondly, I always struggled with what exactly to put in this blog. Event reports? Personal training tips. Techniques? Opinion pieces? I was never sure exactly what to write here. Again, it goes with the aforementioned running of the main site, which is supposed to cover all of those topics. The blog felt redundant.

    I thought I had hit upon the best solution, in that I would create a setup where EVERYONE could have a blog, and move my writing over there. A great idea in theory (actually, the task of passing the buck is hardly a new one), but the response has been lukewarm there at best. Quite frankly, instead of leading the way, I tended to fade in the background.

    Over the last few months, a lot of people have told me in various ways that they missed the blog. Some of you have even gone as far to tell me that they HATE the new blogs. Over the last few months of not writing as much as I used to, I’ve been slowly recharging the batteries. I have to: there’s a new version of OTM online coming up that’s going to require a ton more writing. That version is still a few weeks away at least. But like a damn of ideas ready to burst, I’ve got to get some of this writing out of the way before it all washes away. So far now, by popular demand, I’ve decided to resurrect the old blog.

    You’ll have to let me know whether or not this was a good idea, and I have no idea how long this will last.
