Loyal readers may have noticed that my blogging has waned a bit in the last couple months. It’s not because I’ve lost interest, but because I’ve just had a busy summer.
Blogging is not very time consuming. When I have a topic in mind, the words flow from my brain to my fingertips quite easily. But on the days where I don’t have a topic idea, it can be a little exhausting trying to think of one. So that’s another reason why I’ve wanted to take a step back — days where I’m not feeling heavily inspired, I try not to force it.
You may have also noticed the layout change. I do that from time to time just to keep things fresh. But in this instance, consider it a symbolic change as much as an aesthetic change.
When I started this blog nearly five years ago, it was as an excuse to keep writing. And it’s worked. But in five years — and I hate to say it — I’ve matured a little. I’m not as bitter as I once was. The little things on social media, or in real life, that used to infuriate me no longer do. At least not as much.
And since this blog is a reflection of me, I feel like it would only be appropriate to have it evolve as I evolve.
I want to keep writing about things I like, which include pop culture, entertainment, occasional current events and yes, my day-to-day observations on certain behaviors that do still grind my gears a little. Especially on Facebook.
But I also want to lean a little bit towards talking about other things I like in a more specific way — music, movies, traveling, etc. I do that now, but I want to do it more.
This does not mean I’ll post less. In fact, if anything, it may give me more to talk about. My posts will probably be shorter, though. Think quantity over quality. Although, with me, quality is still important. So don’t fret.
I feel this is the best direction to go as I continue my slow climb towards professionalism. If I’m going to have a blog, it might as well be something I’m not ashamed to put onto my resume.
Otherwise, I’m still here, and don’t plan to go anywhere anytime soon. Even if it’s just five people reading this.
