[Note: fixed some typos on March the 7th]
I’ve been slipping with my blogging somewhat over the past few weeks. We’ve been working on the “ship” which is 2ndSite so to speak, and while blogging is vital in my books, I have been having a helleuva time making time to blog.
One reason is, all the change we are ramping up for at 2ndSite. Once I have that set right, my routine will return to normal (normal..?) and I’ll get back to my blog. But the other reason is – and I have noticed this phenomenon before – I have a post of significance percolating in my head.
What does that mean? It means I have something brewing that I think the blogosphere needs to hear. I find that when I feel this way my day to day posting drops off. The post of significance (if I may be so bold!) centres around the intersection of Web 2.0 and traditional business.
I don’t buy into businesses without business models. I don’t believe in $0 in marketing budget, but I do believe in many of the emerging principles of how business is being conducted online today because it distills what we have learned over the past 10 years. Anyway, I’ve been thinking about these things, and wrestling with my conflicted sensibilities with regards to how to run a web based business today. What will work and how much stock to put in new ideas versus the tried and true.
At this time, in this space, we are in the eye of the hurricane. The winds are going to be picking up soon – so will my blogging. Thanks for reading and please stay tuned.
I look forward to your blog entry on the next generation of "real" web businesses.Though it might help you to know there are readers out here interested in hearing what you have to say.Staying tuned…
“Thanks Dharmesh. That's a great thing to hear and I'm looking forward to following through. Also, I still have a paper in the can from January…so hopefully it won't be too long before I can get this stuff "out there". Thanks again.”
