I’m taking a break from my blog at the moment, because it has become something I had never really intended on it becoming, which was a place where people can find out my views on whatever book/film/tv show I had reviewed recently.
I had always intended on my blog being about writing, and the reviews became a little extra feature I had added out of interest.
And then the reviews took over, and recently I realised I was reading books and watching films I had never seen before, and avoiding things I enjoyed simply because I had already blogged about them.
As much as I am all about experiencing new things, I am nostalgic as well, and I want to enjoy things I enjoy again, and I want to do it without the guilt.
And more than that I realised I was just saying things that other people have already said, simply because I do take a bit longer to get around to formulating my opinions before expressing them. I don’t want to be old news, so I’m going to just stay quiet.
So I am on a blog break. I’ve done this before, and I will come back, but for the moment my writing is going well, I’m enjoying having breaks with reading and viewing without thinking about how I will blog it.
I’m going to have a good think about the purpose of my blog, and I’ll get back to you…someday.
(And if you don’t get that subtle last reference, watch Westworld now, it is awesome.)
