I’ll keep this short and simple. You never know when your time is. Your inability to give your all consistently could keep you from getting an opportunity. For example, I was on vacation last week and took two days off from writing in The Reader. Now, I have built up the consistency to do that but let’s say I had done it within the first 3 months of writing on this site. The Daniels Daily Reader would’ve been seen as the Daniels Sometimesy Reader. You’ve got to build a reputation before you take breaks. And even then, you can’t take a complete break. I worked for 60% of the week before taking two days off. My readers still got some great pointers before I took off. But what if someone had visited my site and seen that there was nothing posted for an entire week? That would probably put a hole or two in my credibility. So, long story short, build credibility before you start taking breaks. Failing to do this could kill an opportunity that you never saw coming.
