Not so much a Blogging strike as a second guessing….
As my niggling concerns about the true utility of blogging grows, despite almost eight years of dutiful service, I’ve been negligent of late.
The pros and cons of the entire exercise are becoming more stark as the years go by, and I’ve frankly not quite been able to chin up to yet another post with all of that swirling in my mind. The fact that the august New York Times referred to this space last summer as being “widely followed in the Canadian financial community” cuts both ways. Taking a few days of holidays hasn’t helped either, given the perspective that comes with some time to reflect.
There’s been plenty of blogable gruel, too, what with the Ontario provincial election, ravenous new competitive products and activities within the Business Development Bank of Canada’s lending group, CPPIB’s 2014 financial results, CNBC showcasing our very own Kevin O’Leary, more signs of heady times in the U.S. bank lending market, CPP Investment Board finally receiving a critical review from the DTM, and so forth. Over the next few days, I promise to tackle them all.
Unless, of course, it all comes to a more formal, shuddering halt in the meantime.
Looking forward to the posts and hoping they don’t come to a shuddering halt.
With respect to the “pros and cons” of blogging Churchill may have said it best “… Good, that means you have stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
Please don’t stop blogging! One of the few honest sources of commentary out there.
