Happy 2018 everybody.
Well, based on everything I saw in the news, 2017 sucked. But as far as my personal life is concerned, it was a pretty good year. I moved far away from my hometown, I got my first job, and I turned 21.
But on New Year’s Eve, I started to do a little bit of thinking about this very blog.
I started this blog almost six years ago. I was a lot younger, and my writing has evolved a lot over the years. I’m happy that I started the blog, as it helped improve not only my writing but also my sense of discipline.
But I noticed that, despite doing this blog for 6 years, I don’t really have that many followers. It hasn’t really gone anywhere, despite all the work I’ve put into it.
Recently, my life has been very busy, and this blog is starting to feel like one more thing that has to be done. And I don’t even feel like I’m doing this for anybody.
Long story short, I am seriously considering ending the blog.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I will continue to watch movies and predict the Oscars, but on my own time. And I’ll likely tweet about it. It’s even possible that I might end up writing for a more prolific site at some point in time. But for the time being, it seems pointless to continue doing this blog if nobody is reading.
I don’t want anybody to think I’m doing this because I’m depressed or anything. I just have a lot going on in my life right now. In addition to the job, I also have two personal projects, I’m working on. One is a fan-fiction that I’m putting a lot of heart and soul into. (See it here.) The other is a more long term project – an independent video game. I’m currently in the pre-development phase, but if this gets done, it will truly be something special.
I want to know your thoughts in the comments. If I get a vocal outcry, then I’ll keep writing the blog. But If the comments support my decision. (Or if there are no comments at all.) Then this may very well be my last post.
For those of you who have stuck with me for a long period of time, thank you very much.
