It’s time to start blogging again. Something I’ve consistently failed at since the concept first raised it’s head. I’ve failed for several reasons in the past, mostly through viewing blogging as an incredibly low priority activity, there’s always been something more important to do. While this is still technically true, I do have slightly more time at the moment but I also have several other reasons for intending to maintain a regular blog (outlined below). Previous attempts have also failed for a variety of other reasons, sometimes I’ve ended up trying to be too professional and it’s become a horrible chore to try and edit a post into something I’d be happy for my clients to read. Sometimes I’ve ended up just meandering into general wittering about my personal life or really just using it to chat to friends (LiveJournal).
Although this is still a ‘personal’ blog, the intention is to make it more of a ‘personal creative blog’, so I’ll include stuff about work projects, record label stuff, personal design work and anything to do with the running of assorted projects but will avoid the personal life crap that tends to creep in. So mostly making stuff and as little whining as possible.
I’ve some specific reasons for starting blogging again, and in the spirit of blogging, here they are:
So, yeah! Let’s see if I last longer than a month, and let’s see if I bore the shit out of you sooner.
* There is no picture of my cat. There will never be a picture of my cat. I don’t own a cat.
** No, you can’t have a free website, extra special situations only!
I am Bob. This is my blog. It is an outlet and a substitute for real life. It contains my art, photography, illustration and thoughts on mental health (I deal with anxiety on a pretty much constant basis).
