I went on vacation and in that week Robert Scoble questions the value he has been adding with his blog and states his intention to take an indefinite break from blogging in his post Things on my mind. From his post he discusses his thoughts after holding a 19 day old baby:
Then I thought about Maryam and Patrick, my son and partner in all things geeky, and Milan, our new son who’ll be here real soon. I haven’t been the best parent I could be. The best husband I could be.
Tonight I looked over my Twitters and blogs. They are angry. Confrontational. Disturbed. Hurt. Dismayed.
. . . So, I’m going to try something else for a while.
Wow – I was only gone a couple of days.
Robert is one the people who got me started in blogging after reading the book Naked Conversations co-authored with Shel Israel. I have used Robert as a beacon to ensure that I was on the right road. Now I think I understand the path I am on enough to continue on my own, but Robert’s posts will definitely be missed.
Robert I wish you the best and look forward to what you have cooking in the future.
