As mentioned in the previous post, I wanted to take a few days to rethink how I wanted to approach this blog. Well, those few days ended up being a week, and during that time I have finally decided – I want to aim for fewer blog posts as a whole, but with a shifted emphasis toward more quality.
And by quality, of course, I mean I want to write more elaborate (not necessarily meatier) blog posts. I simply want less of those throwaway posts I find myself writing here and there when I am lacking motivation or just feeling a tad lazy to blast out something worthwhile.
Don’t get me wrong. I probably could write out 5,000 words for each blog post if I tried hard enough, but this isn’t my kind of writing style. I prefer more concise pieces. But at the same time, I have to play to my strengths.
As a writer, like anyone else, we don’t always blast out gold from our keyboards on any given day. Sometimes, it’s hard to find that spark, that surge of inspiration, to keep the creative juices flowing. Nonetheless, I don’t want to sound like I am making excuses.
Ultimately, I want to improve my blogging and take it to the next logical level, which is to have more people aware of this blog’s very existence.
This blog started out with just a few readers (most of whom I knew in real life) who showed their support by swinging by this piece of cyberspace to see what I had to say. More often than not, I would just be ranting about something dorky that I found interesting, but just the notion of someone checking out what I had to say meant a lot for someone like me.
I was, by all means, a weak person. I was someone in a tough spot who needed something to ease some of the pain. As I have grown stronger over the years, I think it’s about time I set myself apart and really do something meaningful with my life in regards to this blog.
As I often say, I was once very scared and hesitant to tell others about this blog. I wanted it to be a bit private in a sense. I didn’t want to advertise or promote it in the beginning. However, I guess deep down, I’ve wanted people to stumble upon this site. Almost akin to finding someone’s diary and reading through its pages, perhaps now is the perfect time to start letting others see what I have on my mind laid out on this blog.
But yeah, expect fewer posts from here on out, but I promise to make the blog posts a lot more substantial.
As always, thank you very much for all your support.
