Hey, I just wanted to put out a quick update on the blog since there has been an extended period of radio silence. I know that I long ago committed to writing and updating the blog in my own time, but I do feel bad when I go long periods between posts, so I feel like some sort of excuse is in order. Probably most importantly, at the end of July I had my second child, so I’ve had much less leisure time where I could just sit down and write.
I have had Retrospective series and other posts that I’ve wanted to write for a couple years now, but just have no had the time to dedicate to these. Retrospectives in particular are big undertakings, often taking several hours each in addition to the time needed to actually watch all the media involved, and I just have not been able to justify the time commitment that would require. Love/Hate articles, in contrast, take a fraction of the time and have been much more realistic, plus I enjoy the format so expect to see more of those until I have more time for deeper dives.
For that matter, the Resident Evil Love/Hate series is still underway, I have a couple posts completed already for the next batch of articles, but it will likely be a long time before those are completed. It’s new Pokemon season, so I’ll be dedicating most of my playing time to that before diving into any more Resident Evil games. I do plan on doing the Resident Evil Village DLC in the near future though, so when that’s completed I’ll likely edit the existing article, or I’ll do a new one if the DLC is substantial enough.
All this said, I do still have my usual year-end music and movie poster rankings coming on schedule. I work on these throughout the year in bits and pieces so they should be ready at their usual times in December. I also have put work into a big, only slightly masturbatory writing project through the year and that might see release in the new year. I have no idea if anyone will care about it, but whatever, this is my blog and I like to experiment with what I do here. Anyway, that’s where I’m at for now, hopefully I’m able to dedicate more time to writing in 2023 if life becomes a bit more stable.
