I don't want my blog to be a downer. Seriously. I know that there was a time where I would talk about "problems" in this particular space, but I don't think I was ever really that comfortable with it. Some people fill their blogs and journals with melodrama, and while the temptation sits there, I've always been one to kind of shake my head at it. I mean, this isn't a LiveJournal with friends only posts. "The Life of the Traegorn" is completely public (except a few very old entries I've hidden from the internet in retrospect. While it's subject is my life, this is more of me writing a regular column than anything else...
...a very niche column with only a very focused audience, but the concept is the same.
And I want the tone of said column to be a generally happy one, highlighting the good stuff that happens to me and my various interests. I don't ever want someone reading this to come away feeling worse than when they started reading it. I guess that's why I have these days where I want to write about something that's bothering me or that has made me unhappy, and I find myself instead deleting the entry and writing something like this. I mean, don't get me wrong - this isn't some private disaster that I'm hiding away. I've talked about this with a few friends, and I consider this totally in the realm of "public."
But I guess I just don't want to talk about it here.
Don't get me wrong, things have been fairly good lately. I love my girlfriend, I have a roof over my head, and I like my job. Really, when all things are considered, I don't have a huge amount to complain about. Okay, sure, I got a parking ticket this morning, but other than that things are going fairly well these days. You know that guy who is doing well but finds whatever he can to whine on and on and on about constantly? I know that guy.
I don't want to be that guy on any level whatsoever.
I keep putting off major site updates, and they're getting postponed even further as my spare time is going to start getting sucked up working on the No Brand Con website. I've been hired to fix it and return it to it's former glory. Everything comes full circle I guess. Next thing you know, I'll be designing flyers.
Okay, maybe not.
But a paid project like No Brand Con takes priority over my own website. I mean, I have a new direction I want to take certain things, I know what I need to do to create it... I just can't do it until I get things done that other people are counting on. Yeah, I know, I finally developed time management skills. Who would have ever thought it possible?
