i’m still alive: updates and the future of this blog

Hello, all! I am back, and I am, in fact, still alive. Now, I know it’s only been a couple weeks since the last time I posted, but that’s like 10 years in blogger time, so needless to say, I feel a little behind.

Basically, I was on vacation. But hey, we all need a break sometimes! And this was definitely a much-needed departure from the norm that gave me some much-needed time to think.

As a result, I ended up realizing some very unexpected things. One was that I needed a sort-of job change. The other was that I basically have no motivation to blog anymore. Yikes.

Now, we all know motivation comes and goes. And surely vacation can leave you with a lingering sense of laziness. But the problem isn’t that I don’t want to blog at all. It’s that I don’t know what, specifically, I want this blog to be.

Originally, it was just a place to write, to get my ideas out there. Then oh man, how I wanted it to be something big and fantastic, but I didn’t have the stamina–nor the desire–to do what it takes to get there. Then it became a supplement to my YouTube channel, which I thought would fix the problem.

The fact is, I’m not sure what I’m trying to accomplish here. I think it’s fine that I post blog versions of my YouTube videos on here but I wish I was doing something more. I just don’t know what that “something more” should be yet!

Or if I should just pivot to YouTube entirely, since that’s where my interest seems to be these days. Basically, I’m just all mixed up.

So for the time being, I’ll be doing a lot of thinking as I work on figuring all this out. I’m gonna give myself about a month to plan–maybe longer, if I need it. Expect my posting schedule to be erratic, if I even post at all.

Hopefully when I come back, it’ll be with good news: that I’ve got a good handle on what I want this blog to look like! And if you have any ideas, or if you’ve read enough stuff on here (thank you, by the way) to know what you’d like to see more of, let me know!

So that’s all for now. I’ll put my latest videos down below, since I skipped the last few weeks.

Gah.
