Hello everyone, long time no see! I’m here to tell you about the future of this blog. Behind the scenes, I’m hard at work bringing you a new and improved blogging format.
I very enthusiasticly posted about my plans for this blog at the end of 2015. Since then I posted two more articles, but something was gnawing in the back of my mind: “no one is reading this.”
I know this isn’t true, some of you are. And I take this opportunity now to really thank each and everyone of you who visits and comments, for sharing and retweeting. 🙂 I really appreciate it!
Truth is, sometimes you have to take a step back and admit that something is not working. This is not a bad thing, because you can come back to improve it. (Or, in some cases. you just quit. There is no shame in quitting something that is going nowhere or that doesn’t do you any good)
These posts take a while to make, especially when there are images involved. This is not to complain, but at some point, you want to see it being read. Specifically, I want these posts to be of use to you and to reach the people who can benefit from it. Especially since I’m working on my comic project so much. If this is not working and people don’t read the blog I could think of better uses of the time I now spend writing posts. It’s not that I haven’t been trying for a while too, I have been blogging for a few years now.
I realized since a while that my rambings are often times too long. People don’t like to read long pieces of text on the computer. Then it dawned on me: are the people who I want to reach (artists like myself, looking for ways to make their personal projects and overcoming resistance) actually reading much at all? I did some research, turns out, a lot of artists don’t read, (I do, which is why this never occured to me) they are too busy making art. They do listen though, to audiobooks, podcasts and videos.
So I’m going to try out this blogging thing once more, but in a different format: audio.
So that’s what I’m working on right now, converting content, expanding on it and thinking of new ideas to talk about. I also want to revamp the site a bit to better fit the format.
So stay tuned, and I hope you’ll like what comes out at the other end of this. 🙂
Thanks for reading!
