I’ve toyed with this idea and posted about it many times, but the probability of me creating a new blog is growing.
I graduated from my course several weeks back and after a few weeks of a fruitless job search, I landed a temporary position with a demolition company. Now, at 5’7″ and 120 pounds, manual labour is in no way what I’m made for. But the money is good for a filler job and it’s taken me away from the miserable €14 in my bank account.
I’ve completed three weeks now and tomorrow is the start of my fourth. I know I won’t last much longer. A few more weeks, maybe. If I’m really lucky, another month or two. For the most part, I find the work incredibly tedious and exhausting and what can I say, I’m stubborn. I want to do something I enjoy doing.
Which brings me to the blog… I’ve wanted to have a blog that says a lot more than this one. Sure, I could just change the style of posts here, but I don’t want to do that. Even though I don’t post often lately, I primarily use this blog as a soundboard and place to vent my thoughts and progressions. It helps me plan things out. This new blog, however, will have an actual purpose. I want to communicate my ideas on many things in life, philosophy, psychology, society, yet still keep with my other interests of writing, sports and gaming. Basically, it’s a bit of a mish-mash-article-bash of opinion pieces that are actually constructed, rather than lashed out in one sitting (like this blog!).
At the moment, I’m getting a custom PC made with the help of a friend. That will hopefully be finished by the end of this week. Today I bought an INCREDIBLY comfortable chair so I finally don’t have a sore back when sitting by my desk for a long term. I’ve also rearranged my room for better productivity. More or less, I’m making the most of what I have to make a work station.
So to continue this growth and excitement, I’m thinking of taking the plunge and buying a domain name and the theme I’ve always wanted. Now that I’m earning money, I might as well splash out the little bit while it’s still there. I’m saving quite a lot of the money I earn for various reasons, but I figure it’s best to get all these bits that I’ve wanted for the past 5+ years.
I’m still debating a name for the blog, as the one I intended to use is already taken. Once I have an ideal one sorted and have done a bit of research/preparation, I’ll be getting the domain name and theme and going for it. It might flop, it might be great, who knows…
I’ve kept this blog at a steady 550ish followers with intermitent posting and while a lot of those followers are inactive, I hope to exceed that with my new blog. I’m by no means expecting to become blogging famous with it, but I hope to reach people – after all, the point of this blog will be to spread ideas and hopefully develop debates/ideas. My time studying philosophy in college has showed me the objective merit of every argument, so I’d love to create a community where all opinions can be shared.
