Last Post of 2010

Posted on Dec 6 2010 - 3:38am by Mike Lieberman

This is going to be my last post of 2010. I need to take a break from posting and promoting.

I’ve been feeling a bit stagnant lately. I think the posts and blog have suffered because of it.

It feels like I’m forcing content and just putting stuff out there. It feels like I’m saying the same things over and over again to the same people. I appreciate those people, but I think I need to take some time off to hopefully rest, refocus and re-energize.

Hope everyone has a good holiday and happy new year.


  • Theresa Loe

  • Mark

    Hey Mike, reflecting is imperative. Taking the time to review what you thought worked and what didn’t this past year inspires evolving thought. It’s all about the process and reflecting on that process. See you next year!

  • Mike Lieberman

    Appreciate it Mark. Def need some reflective time.

  • Junglemn

  • Mattie

    Hey Mike, I’ve always been super inspired by your determination and informative posts. We all need breaks to figure out our next chapter. Enjoy yours!

  • SteveH

    Haven’t been checking out your site as much as the frost killed my garden, but rest well and I’ll check back in a few weeks. Also- Don’t short change yourself on the rest/reflection/refresh. Like other posters already said, it is vital…..In all honesty it’s no different than the growing season. The soil needs time to recover for the next growing season.

    Hey…I am one of your silent newbie followers…I learn something all of the time from you. Thank you for the inspiration. Re-focus and re-energize…great idea for everyone!

  • Chad McCullough

    Missing your Facebook posts. Looking forward to the refocused and re-energized Mike Lieberman! :-)

  • Mike Lieberman

    Thanks Chad. I’ll be back this week. Felt good to step away a bit. Hope you enjoyed your holidays.

  • Mike Lieberman

    Appreciate the comment. Def been good to re-energize.

  • Mike Lieberman

    Thanks Steve. Certainly feel refreshed. Hope you do as well.

  • Mike Lieberman

    Appreciate it Mattie. Wish you the best in 2011.

  • Mike Lieberman

    Hahaha. Appreciate it. Wish you all the best this year too.

  • Melissa

    I’m looking forward to your posts again. I ripped out bushes in front of my townhouse last fall and am looking forward to planting that space with some delicious veggies to complement my herb boxes.

    Can’t wait to hear your commentary as I begin to pick out seeds for the quickly approaching Nebraska spring.

  • Mike Lieberman

    Thanks Melissa. I’m back. I wish to someday have actual land to plant in. Keep me updated on your front yard.

  • SamK

    Have you any experience with straw bales? I also have limited soil, and I’ve been amazed at the possiblities this medium offers. While you would need some type of containment for your’s because they do break down over the growing season, you can plant both the tops and the sides, and you are creating great compost for next year.

  • Mike Lieberman

    Hm, no experience with straw bales. Please do tell more.
