I have been away from this blog for way too long. Even though I have many, I’m not going to give excuses. I’m just going to promise to do better..
I will tell you that, as of this moment, most of the new posts will be reviews. I don’t have a lot of DIY or life lessons to give right now. That might change in the future. I might decide that I have a great tutorial or that people seem to have incorrect ideas on how the world works. If something like that happens, I will absolutely post about it. However, for now, I’m going back to my roots - reviewing.
In case you haven’t been following me around the internet like a stalker, I began blogging way back in 2002. Like most people, I started blogging about my life. But I quickly found that I also liked reviewing things. Before heading out on my own, I wrote video game reviews for a friend's website. (Maybe my Samba de Amigo review is still kicking around somewhere…) But then I started reviewing things on my own sites. Well, sites like LiveJournal and Vox, anyway. (Does anyone else remember when Vox was a blog platform?)
I’m not sure exactly when I started writing reviews. I’ve changed blog platforms multiple times and, to the best of my ability, the earliest dates I can find are from mid-2007. I do know I wrote a music review column for Anime News Network back in 2008. I wrote articles and reviews for Protoculture Addicts from 2006 through 2008, when they shut down production. And I reviewed cartoons for Bubble Blabber from 2014 through 2016.
So, yeah, I’ve been reviewing things for something like 10+ years. I think maybe that is why I wasn’t motivated to write any more. I thought I was “too good” for reviews. Like I should be writing something better. Something more important. But reviews are what I am good at. So back to reviews I go. I hope you will enjoy what I have to say, even if we don’t agree on the subject.
And thank you for sticking with me. It has been a long journey but I think I have finally found my ‘spot.’
