Sometimes, even when I have a massive backlog of things to write about, I just don’t want to write. I want to game, I want to go thrifting, I want to read a book, I wanna watch a movie; anything but writing for the website. It isn’t because I don’t care or because I don’t have anything to say (clearly I do, as I mentioned I have a massive backlog) but at the time I just don’t feel like it.
I put more effort than it may seem into even the simplest posts. Sometimes they come out perfectly easy, but other times, even small posts can seem to be an ordeal to accomplish. I try to get out one article a day, and I do give myself a few breaks a month – sometimes more than a few days will pass, which I hate, but other times I can easily get out 3 or 4 articles in one day, if the need (or the drive to do such) allows. Some days, though, eh, ya just don’t give a damn.
That was the past couple of days. Oh sure, they’ve been good days, and yeah, this post is actually going to be post-dated to yesterday, like I often do, but as it stands they just weren’t days to write. Add in working quite late at the shop has something to do with taking up my time, but that’s another story.
That’s fine, though. Everyone needs a break every week from the norm. I just hate messing up what is my normal schedule for, well, no reason other than “I feel like it.” Then again, this is my website. My thoughts on things I like or dislike, shared for whomever wants them, for whatever value they may be to you. I can take all the breaks I want, now that I think about it. Hell, I get good traction just sharing old articles off and on, so I can easily do that on days I don’t feel like pushing out new content.
Still, it’s better to keep ideas coming. To keep throwing out something. Sure, I need to continue on site navigation, but I do have videos that I need to film, games that need playing, and life that needs to be lived.
What am I getting at with this post? The hell if I even know! I’m just typing what comes to mind, again, for whatever use it may be to you reading this. Maybe it will make you feel less stressed about your own projects. Maybe you will think I’m crazy: I’m sure I am, but that’s not the point.
There is no point in this post, other than for it to be a post, and that’s fine. That’s more than fine. At least it’s out here, and it’s something on the site, being written at nearly 2AM when I should be sleeping.
This is the end result of typing exactly what you think in a stream of consciousness. Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoyed. More normal content in the morning.
