The Compulsion To Blog Again Is Upon Me

It has been some time since I last blogged. A lot of that had to do with my engrossment of social media. I would check FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc on a daily basis. Without realizing I would spend a few hours idling by looking at people’s “best versions” of their lives and compare it to bland mundane version of myself.

Also, I would realize that it was time wasted, that I could have done something more productive, or, at the very least, more entertaining. That would fuel my self-loathing and despondency and I would escape further into my shell and just consume more media and blog nothing.

Sometime in March of 2018, I decided to podcast again. I was feeling the urge to output something and recording my stream of conscious ramblings for 10-15 minutes a week seem to be the least I could do. Writing involves more time and thought and I just wasn’t ready to do that if I could get the same point across in a short quick rambling and then post it online, to the ether.

Since March, I’ve been pretty consistent with my weekly recordings and am now feeling the urge to blog again. The thought here is that maybe some thoughts that I rambled on could be better fleshed out in text form, especially since I can look at it, edit it, proofread it, etc.,

So this here is my new blog entry in more than a year. Hopefully I can keep this momentum going and see what may come of this.
