If writing about writing is a sin, I’m the Devil

Posted: December 20th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | 6 Comments »

This is how this post was going to happen: I was going to apologize to all six of you for the spottiness of this blog over the past year-plus and give a cagey explanation for it, talk about how discouraging writing in a vacuum can be, and then promise to do better. But after some thought, I realized all that could be summarized pretty easily:

Wah, wah, wah.

Instead I’ll just say that I’ve been busy with personal stuff that is, by definition, none of your business. And yes, writing without feedback can get frustrating, but not as frustrating as the cliquishness of the comic book blogging community (imagine the high school hierarchy of the cool and uncool; now imagine everyone is still a nerd and you’re halfway there). Ultimately, though, that’s all bullshit. I write because I want to — because I have to — so I should really just relax about it.

Pheeew. Aaaahhh.

I do promise to be better about updating and writing more actual “content,” though. That’s a promise to myself as much as it is to you. I’ll still be writing about comics, but I’ll also be writing about a lot of other, mostly geeky things I enjoy or find interesting. If you’d like to stick around, that would be great — from the beginning the purpose of this blog has been to connect, to discuss and to participate in a like-minded community.

So to all six of you — thanks for reading. Talk to you soon.

    I do read this blog although I used to read the old one more frequently, especially when it was time for Friday Night Fights. Remember FNF? Good times, good times.

    Anyhoo, just want you to know that there are SEVEN people reading this blog and I for one would be miss it if you decide to stop updating. So don’t. Please?
