Shit post

This post is shit.

As you may have noticed, I’m having a hard time keeping up with my “post every day” schedule. I don’t know what it is. I’m noticing the same with other things as well, so it may be related to me spending most of my time on gamedev and programming and all those fun things. But eh, I don’t think that’s the biggest factor here.

Since my interested in gamedev gained momentum, I’ve lost increasing amounts of interest in other things. I’m not doing very much with writing other than keeping up with this blog, for example. And as said, even that is getting hard. I just don’t have any ideas for posts to write. Sure, I have a couple more “things you didn’t know about” lined up, as well as a how-to on having a separate archive page, but I just never find the time (or will, for that matter) to write those. Why? All my time keeps going to gamedev.

When I say all my time, I actually mean most of my time. Parts still go to goofing around, playing a game or two with friends, that kind of stuff. But I just, ugh.
I feel like I’m wasting my time here. I can’t imagine you guys enjoy reading this, and I don’t particularly enjoy writing posts like these either. But if these kinds of posts are all that’s coming from here on out, then what should I do? Just drop it?

Nah. Blogging is still an outlet for me, whether people read it or not. It gives me a tiny bit of writing experience and helps me connect (these days much less than before) with people a bit. But just, ugh.

I probably feel terrible because I’m hungry though. Let’s fix that.

    What Mark said. Blogging every day is way too hard. Even if you just do something like Monday, Wednesday, Friday, you still have a great schedule. Remember that not everyone can read what you post every day, so you don’t want your words to go to waste. Blogger burnout is a very real thing, and if you don’t trim down somewhere, a lot of people tend to just quit in frustration.

    Well you don’t have to stop blogging but you can cut down the schedule without too much of an issue. It’s not hard to see that you’re losing your passion and drive for this even outside the blog as you don’t even comment or read blogs as much as you used to, let alone write quality posts. I don’t mind reading what you term low quality posts though, I’m convinced I’ve been doing that for over a year.
