After all this time, my post count reaches 300. I thought I would take a moment to celebrate this achievement. I love to write. I love to write so much and I have so many things that I still need and want to write. I will be continuing my ongoing stories, finding new ones, putting up personal stuff, new reviews and all sorts of projects. I am already gearing up for the 2016 A to Z Blogging Challenge which I participated in last April. I will post about that in detail when we get closer to April. I will be engaging in similar Octoberween shenanigans as last year. I will try to keep up my current schedule of three posts a week (Usually Monday, Thursday, Saturday).
So when I think of 300, I think of the movie 300. I still feel like an underdog writing this blog but that’s fine. I’ve stated that I would still write this blog if there was absolutely no traffic. It is a challenge unto myself and I am currently conquering that challenge. When it comes to this blog (and in life lately) I believe in myself. As Daniel Avidan said: “If you don’t believe in yourself, you’re a fucking coward!” and I still hold that as true. There is no reason you should not believe in yourself. Self-confidence is hard but I feel that I am getting a lot better at it as time goes by.
I recently started going back to school for legal studies and I am excited to see that continue to alter not only my life but my writing as well. I finished up my BFA in 2005 and ten and a half years later I am back at it. It feels really weird but it is also very exciting. With each week I see the world through a slightly different lens and my worldview is growing and changing. In addition, those who follow my Media Update series know that I’m watching up to three new things week. The influx of new stories continues to inspire me and adds new perspectives.
Well, enough of this self-referential meta stuff. I’ll be back on Monday with an actual post. Thank you to everybody who reads this and/or supports me!
(Edit: I wrote this the other night with very little sleep while attending a funeral. I stand by its spirit and I am amused at myself.)
