Just gonna say right now this is going to be one of my more rambly, introspective jotting thoughts down I need to get out of my head posts, since I’ve had a lot of things on my mind lately. You have been warned~
I’ve been toying around with starting another blog as of late, but I’m honestly not surprised. I’ve wanted to have another blog for a while, but in regards as to what I’d like to write about, I haven’t quite pin pointed that yet. I keep on telling myself that I want it to be a nerdy blog, where I talk about nerd culture and things I like and stuff like that, but whenever I try to write an initial post for that premise, I never quite like it. I don’t think that’s where my passion is, even though I like all of the media I consume (which is generally nerdy). When I look at the deeper aspects of the media I like, however, it’s always the deeper aspects of it I dive into. More precise, I like the writing and story telling aspects of it. Whenever I talk to my family, or my friends about a show I’m watching, I always dive deeper into the characters development, the storytelling, plot aspects of it, what characters motivations were, why and how an episode or chapter tackled the topic it was trying to tackle at hand well, how it could have done it better, things like that. I guess I’m just a writer at heart, and dissecting topics from an author’s prospective is just so fascinating to me, but I have a hard time putting it in written words whenever I try.
So, in comes the format issue. Should I try and write it down again? Make videos? Podcasts? My mind instantly goes to doing it in a podcast format, but doing a podcast alone doesn’t seem like something people would be interested in. So YouTube videos then? I honestly don’t know if I’d be able to carry either a podcast, or video format without being a huge derp when I talk. But, at the same time, I find I can express myself on these topics a lot better when I speak, than when I write it down in text. But still, I’m torn as whether to do it as strictly audio, or as video: Because the video would probably just be me sitting in a chair and talking.
Speaking of writing, I’d also like to try and write more on this separate blog. What I envision is a blog (or I guess just a space because can’t figure out what format to do) where I talk about writing, storytelling, different tropes in fiction, the writing process, and share my writing like I do sometimes over here. I think that’s why I always have stilted writing, when I try to just write about some sort of geek culture thing: I like reading about that stuff, but when I’m writing, I like to look at things a bit deeper.
And that’s where I’m stumped. I honestly don’t know if making another blog, podcast, or whatever, is a good idea. Piling that on with my music, my current blog, and radio plays seems like it might be a bit to much, but at the same time, it’s something I’d really, really like to do. If you have any advice, or suggestions, or comments in general, I’d love to hear them! Because like I said I’m not sure how to proceed with this, or if it’s even a good idea to do so.
