Five days after I acknowledged that I’ve become somewhat disheartened with the quality of my recent posts (a few have been good, a few others not so much), I’ve come to conclude that some days I’m literally forcing things out prematurely. This whole “publish things daily’ was a great challenge for some time, but in my current juncture of life, my motivation has dulled to the preference of other activities. Basically, I’ve run out of solid ideas that I want to write, instead opting to write for the sake of it, which is no bueno. Continue reading “Writer’s Block Takes Hold – An Update”
There are times when my writing does not come up to the standards that I set for myself as a competitive perfectionist. The most recent example of this was my last article, detailing my thoughts on the latest Star Wars: Episode IX trailer. In it, much was said about how big corporations are run by Satan and that the existence of anything for profit is bereft of the creative soul. Upon publishing, I immediately looked back on it and thought, “Man, how often have I said all this before?”
Many times. Such is the identity I have established for myself the past six years. Continue reading “Coming to Terms with Your Blogging Identity”
To those who have been visiting the blog on a semi-regular basis, you may have noticed that it’s seen some changes in the past couple weeks. The layout has changed to feel more modern (which means more bold) and the content has become more varied in type, both from a topical standpoint and a medium standpoint. I’ve finally found a groove in which this blog can finally be about a place for visual media (and football) and not just anime, which is something I’m immensely fond of. On top of that, the content has been rolling in at a rate unheard of for this blog outside of my annual March of the Movies block (the next of which is coming soon). I wanted to take the time to address these sudden changes. Continue reading “Asserting My Writing Efficiency – A Poorly-Veiled Blog Update”
Just a quick update to detail why posts from my blog have been coming at a somewhat slow pace for the last two months or so. I am currently back in school finishing my Bachelor’s in English and some of the time I spend mentally is either directly or semi-directly attributed to bettering/preparing myself for classes and assignments. Henceforth, the output of my blog may be a little on the slow side; my normal schedule is every two, sometimes three days, but lately it’s been anywhere from three to five days. I think I’m gonna try and keep it within the once-every-four-days category or quicker. So expect my blog to continue, though at a slower rate.
That said, thank you all for the continued support and I’ll be back either tomorrow or Thursday with a post years in the making. Enjoy your time-of-day!
This year’s Summer of Manga/Anime has come to a close and I’m ready to let the words fly with the strength I’ve used to keep them steady. Continue reading “Reflecting on The Summer of Manga/Anime 2018 + Future Plans”
