I am not keeping up at all with my blog. There are many reasons why. I will not go into all of them. I ended up writing seven pages in my actual journal today. I needed to get out of a lot of shit, as they say. I needed to digest everything that has been going on in my life, both creatively and uncreatively. Does that make sense? I’ve been thinking about my writing again, in general, and how much I can’t wait to get back into my second and third novel idea. I’m going to be working on both very soon, hoping within the next few weeks, because that means I will have my first novel self-published. It has been the complete thorn in my side and then some. I can’t wait until it’s all done. It’s taking longer than I had hoped. Better in July than never although June would have been better. It’s now July and still hot in LV. No one should be surprised by this. I’ve completed watching some shows, continuing on with others, and becoming increasingly annoyed at all the streaming services popping up everywhere. They have become the new Starbucks in the entertainment world. It’s like they are trying to push cable TV to extinction as someone recently said to me. This might not be a bad idea but it’s gotten so bad to the point of utter stupidity. I remember when you could buy Microsoft Office and upload it to your computer. Now you have to buy it every year as if it is never owned by you. Don’t get me started what Apple is doing with movies and music. I mean who cares if you bought the movie or album? That doesn’t mean it can’t go away in the future. Huh? Bottom line is to back up your shit that’s important to you, meaning that favorite movie you love, because you’re sick of all the clutter of owning actual movie discs and got rid of said disc. Now that I’ve said my peace with that, it’s time for me to move forward and onward. I’ve been moving like a snail’s pace it seems but the good thing is I get weekends off again, at least for a while, and what I call get it while it’s hot. So, yes, I’m not keeping up. Frankly, I don’t care. It’s my life and my decision. I don’t rely on my blog for money although maybe I should. Someone also recently said it’s annoying to have to sit through and watch all these damn advertisements on blogs. I’m proud to say there are none on mine or so I believe. I get that you make your blog/website more profitable with more clicks, but let me tell you there is a downside to it too. It could be an utter turnoff and people won’t visit your blog or website anymore. Have you ever watched a video where there is 30 seconds of advertisement? I skip these videos unless it’s something I really want to see. Otherwise, it’s not worth to me. I don’t want to make that time. So, this is all I have for now. Basically, as the second half of 2021 is upon us, I will be blogging less to make room for other things in my life although right now I’m not doing too much right now besides working, eating, sleeping, and reading. On that note, I will still be blogging and try better with shorter periods of time in between entries.
