No I have not disappeared, nor have I decided to stop blogging. But as I mentioned in a recent post work and life have kept me incredibly busy lately and so I have not had much time for this more enjoyable and leisurely hobby of putting my thoughts in at least some semblance of order to share with the wider world.
I hope to get back to regular blogging soon; at work we are looking for a second person to help share the load that I carry as a product owner and that will help free up my brain space anyway so that I can think more about writing. Life outside work may continue to be full but if work can settle back to be more sustainable pace then I should be able to carve out blogging time again.
I don’t know if I will realistically get back to my ambitious plan of posting 5 times each week on different topics. I do have thoughts about leadership, pop culture, things I read, and being Agile running through my head regularly that I would welcome the chance to share and discuss – as well as questions about all kinds of things that weigh on my mind in varying degrees. But finding the time to compose my thoughts that regularly has proven challenging, and it has not been clear to me this year how interesting my reflections on these matters have been to those who read my blog.
So I plan to get back to regular writing as soon as I can, but in the meantime I would welcome any feedback about my blog that you all want to share here or on Twitter (@asbiv). As I have said before I already spend lots of time talking to myself and I started this blog hoping instead to talk with other people. If a post goes up on WordPress and nobody reads it is it really there? So if you have a moment please use the comments or find some other way of letting me know your thoughts on this blog. Hopefully there will be more to read here soon. Thanks.

I’m reading and enjoying your blog entries, Stephen. You have interesting ideas and insights, and you phrase them in sometimes humorous ways that I find engaging and charming. So consider this a +1 to continue blogging.
