Getting Back To Basics

During my vacation I realized a lot of my anxiety from the blog came from pressure to “entertain”. I wanted to post random pics and videos, but now I have a tumblr account for that outlet. So that leaves what? I’ve written posts on fashion, technology, history, etc. I’ve also written just about me. Most of my audience (most – not to discount my random fans :D) are people that know me. The pieces I write about myself get more responses. Since I’m far away I find my friends are more interested in what’s going on. That doesn’t mean I’m going to become self-obsessed and ONLY write about me me me. I’ll still have fun with other subjects, but I’ll try to make this a more down-to-earth blog. That’s what Mom’s been asking for, at least. It’s easier to write from the heart, anyway. That means if I’m ever stuck on what to write, I can just pick something that happened in my life and tell a story. I like telling stories. My friends can tell you that. I don’t know, though, if I should get liquored up before writing those posts first….

Another note: because of that weird stress level I was falling under I think I’m going to make this a 3x a week blog instead of 4-6x. I’ll post Mon/Wed/Fri (or try to at least), that way I’m not bogging down Facebook with updates and I’m not panicking for ideas everyday. I hope somebody is happy with this information. If not, that won’t stop me from trying to pick this blog up for a few weeks at least to give me something to do.

  1. I am happy 🙂 I like stories.

  2. i am very happy that you r gunna write from your heart rather than just to be amuzing! i sometimes feel like i need to entertain too; thank you for showing me that it shouldn’t be a chore. ❤

  3. This is part of why I stopped posting my score from Metagameworld. I’m almost to 5000, but I don’t really have a fun way to share it yet.
