Hi Guys, I’m just going to have a little chat with you today. Not talking about anime at all. So feel free to skip it if you’re only here for that sweet anime content.
Lately I haven’t been able to contribute as much to 100 Word Anime as much as I would like. But I have excuses. Good ones…well factual ones…. I’ve been sick and work is actively trying to kill me with an impressively intensive schedule for the past 6 months or so. I’m not prone to either stress or burn out but some serious efforts are being made. However, as great as these excuses may be, they are just excuses.
Bottom line is that I consider my blogging experience a hobby and that’s how I approach it.
That’s fine for my own blog. I can just throw any old thoughts and bits of whimsy I may have on there cause it’s my place. It’s o.k. if I occasionally make a bit of a mess. But over here, I want to keep things a little more tidy. I want to contribute posts that won’t embarrass my host and that are in tune with the rest of the site. It’s a bit more challenging and sometimes I don’t feel up to it.
So that’s why I’ve been procrastinating about putting something out here. No big secret reason, plain old tired and lazy. And for the first time, I can understand what bloggers talk about when they mention blogging guilt.
I’ve created a cozy little ecosystem for myself over on my blog. I already know the random set of conditions I need to fulfil in order to feel happy and satisfied with my work there. Sometimes it doesn’t work out as well as others but as long as I stick to it, I know I’ve tried my best. But when you’re essentially a guest in someone else’s house, you can’t just decide everything for yourself. You could but you probably won’t get invited again.
Then again, who needs a second invite if they can’t get you to leave! Am I right!!
Anyways I am feeling tired and oddly guilty about not posting enough and guys it s_cks. Am I allowed to say that here? I’m not sure how else to put it. It just does. For all my blogger friends that have gone through it or are doing so now, you got my sympathies.
Since it does s*ck, I’m going to try to stop doing it. I’m going to work a bit harder to make sure I cover both blogs as much as I can…. eventually. Work is still insane but I’m hoping it’s going to calm down soon. Which is why I put together this little announcement instead of just doing it.
TLDR: I am planning on reinforcing my contributions here as soon as I can so I hope you will stick with me. Have a great day!
