I spent quite a bit of time today thinking about the future of this blog. I started this blog because I really enjoy journaling and I feel like blogging isn’t too different other than the fact that it’s public. This is a place for me to write up my thoughts and feelings on something I enjoy – in this case, mostly gaming. And so for the last couple months, this blog has been a little pet project of mine. Honestly, I kept my expectations pretty low and assumed that no one would read this blog because of how often things get lost on the internet and I’m too awkward and shy to actually do anything about it.
But I think there’s at least like, 2 or 3 people that read this blog, and that makes me pretty happy (hello!).
For 2020, I would like to write at least 12 posts (excluding posts like this one) for an average of one post per month. It seems like a reasonable frequency to shoot for.
Now the problem I’m having and the reason I did a lot of thinking today is that I actually have no idea what I want to write about next. Six days into 2020 and I already feel like I have total writer’s block.
But maybe that’s okay? Why am I even writing this post? Maybe I’m trying to publicly convince myself that it’s okay?
The one definitive thing I know about the future of this blog is that I don’t want it to feel tedious. But other than that, I don’t know if there’s anything else I can say for certain.
Also, I just finished my second playthrough of Fire Emblem: Three Houses yesterday and I’m feeling a bit burnt out on gaming. I don’t think I’ll completely stop playing games in the coming week, but maybe I’ll take a step back for a bit. In the meantime, maybe I can kill this writer’s block in some way – maybe with some creative writing or something – but I have no idea how some writers can write articles upon articles without running out of ideas. (Good thing I don’t write for a living)
But mark my words, I refuse to let this blog die. This blog has been a lot of fun. And I would like to keep it that way.
Here’s to 2020.
