This morning I was up and at my desk early, as is my normal practice on a Wednesday morning. That’s where, for close to three years now, I could usually be found hammering away at the keyboard to get Tech Talk, my weekly column for the Isle of Man Examiner Business News done and dusted.
But today, as I booted up the old desktop I suddenly remembered…I’m not doing that anymore.
That’s right. Next week will be my last weekly Tech Talk newspaper column; I told the editor a few weeks ago that I’m not going to be able to continue to contribute each week.
I’m just too busy these days and with some recent changes at Strive PR, keeping the column going just doesn’t make sense.
It’s not that I haven’t enjoyed it. Writing is the best part of my job, and often the weekly column is the only writing I get to do these days (which is probably why I’ve kept it up as long as I have). But something has to give.
The good news is that I’ve agreed to continue to write the occasional contributed column going forward. So I’ll not be disappearing from the pages entirely. Watch this space!
