I must once again apologize for my lack of blogging this past month. I really do feel disappointment in my procrastination, and I know it doesn’t reflect well on the blog. Still, there isn’t much more I can do than apologize, until such a time that I can blog at a more consistent pace again. However, I’m apologizing too frequently over blogging woes, so here’s a brief outline of why I haven’t posted frequently this past month.
I’m really proud of this blog, and I always try to put forth my best work when I post something. Initially I posted more music than anything else; these posts took less than five minutes, as I just needed to copy-paste a video URL and write a brief description. Back then, I easily blogged once a day. Now, however, I’ve leaned more towards blogging long posts in which I put forth a lot of thought. I also feel the need to maintain a (personally) very high standard for the content on this blog, so I try to write to the best of my capabilities instead of writing in a casual, simple fashion. Although it may make for some more interesting content, it sure takes up a lot more time. When I began posting longer articles, it easily took me between forty minutes to an hour to finalize a review that I felt genuinely proud of. With practice I’ve shortened that to twenty minutes to half an hour. Still, it’s a lengthy and tiring process, which in part explains the laziness I’ve had with this blog for a while.
Don’t get me wrong; blogging has been an extremely rewarding experience for me thus far, and I’ll always be proud of this blog. However, those emotions give way to the adoption of a perfectionist attitude, one that isn’t necessarily good for a hobby such as blogging. I know blogging at its best is an honest rendering of the true emotions of a person; more often than not, this is protrayed in a simple manner. I just feel the need to make it as good as possible, and that makes me take a long time. I also want to post content that is worth reading, and by all means interesting to the audience; it’s not easy to write quickly on contreversial issues of the day, as it requires a lot of thought, and a stellar rendition if it’s purpose is to pursuade.
Even now, this post has gone on for way too long; unnecessary length, I just can’t avoid it. So, my laziness on blogging is due to two main reasons, both due to a perfectionist attitude: the desire to write to the best of my abilities in the most eloquent manner possible, and the desier to post only the most interesting reads. Doing so on a daily basis requires more time than I can afford to invest into something that will always be a hobby, but a cherished one at that.
The only way I can conclude is by promising to blog more often, but I won’t make false claims. I’ll blog as frequently as I can as long as I can meet the high standards I’ve set myself for this blog. Quality is sometimes better than quantity, and I hope that shows in the posts I write in the future. Finally, a big thanks to all my readers, if indeed anyone does follow the blog; the motivation and feedback is great, and will always inspire me to blog more.
