So I've been thinking . . .

Despite the "CLOSED" sign, a few people here and there have been posting responses to Superheroes, etc. and one of them wrote:

Oh, keep going every now and then. You're a good writer. When you have a moment, blog. But don't feel like you have to do it.

And that made me think about WHY exactly blogging takes up too much time. Is it because blogging takes up too much time, or is it because how I approached blogging?

And I think it's the latter. Whenever I wrote reviews, I always had an outline beforehand, and without fail I copy-edited everything I posted ruthlessly. Particularly when I moved my blogging from The Daily Burn to here, I became much more conscious of using scanned pics to make everything look more professional.

If I don't approach blogging like it's some kind of pseudo-professional thing, why should it eat into my time that much?

So, you know what? I'm going to keep blogging. I'm going to take Chance's advice (the source of the above quote), and just do it whenever I feel like it. Might not pump out too many reviews, but whatever.

So, if you read my last entry...don't tell me to shut the fuck up yet.

If I start writing and formatting things in a way that makes it look like I'm trying to be all "this ain't just a blog, it's a one-man magazine," then, please, tell me to shut the fuck up.

Okay, I'm glad I checked here before I decided to cut the link. I'd figured this for a dead site and I was up for sidebar maintence. :)
