On Blogging

I can't believe I'm into my fifth year with this blog. In the beginning, I started it for two main reasons: 1) to keep myself in the habit of writing semi-regularly, and 2) to have a space to express myself whenever I had things I wanted to say but no one to say them to. Now, I find myself rarely ever having things I actually want to say, and instead I'm stretching to find things to say just so that I'll have things to fill this space with. Madness.

Sometimes I fantasize about starting up a more "professional" outlet--still unfiltered but encompassing more serious editorial and weightier topics. Ideally, I would also have interviews and guest columnists. I can't really see that working, though, unless I already had a large readership. Alas, page views have been way down ever since my Pokemon Stadium post got delisted from Google's image search results. (I don't think they actually "delisted" it; for whatever reason, it just doesn't get those hits anymore.)

I just noticed that I've gotten a handful of page views sourced from my LinkedIn page (which has a link to my blog). And by "handful," I mean 6. But it's something!
