Some faithful readers may have noticed that I have been absent from the blog for a few months. After attending the last excellent MBS conference in Philadelphia, I decided to re-evaluate my approach to the website and my audience. The kyleolmon.com website and blog went live many years ago and I am beginning to explore options for a fresher look and navigation. Many viewers are reaching me via mobile and tablet as opposed to desktop and laptops. HTML5 is making dynamic web pages much easier. RSS feeds like my beloved Bloglines and Google Reader are disappearing along with many of my favorite bloggers. Kyle Olmon 2.0 may be just around the corner.
While I love the less constrained and longer format options of blogs, it seems like my limited time and energy for social media might be better served as I focus more on my Facebook profile, Youtube channel, Twitter feed and whatever the next big app will be…PinSnapInstaElloFour+ anybody?
So keep contacting me through the website and keep sharing on social media, but don’t be surprised if I don’t get back to your blog comment right away. That being said, I just may get a second wind and fire off some blog posts when I get inspired. Blogs are dead, long live blogs.
