How did I fall the fuck off? I always used to laugh at the XXL Milk Carton feature, and if there was one for bloggers I would have been on that ish. I can only speak for myself, not my fellow fallen bloggers, but let me break down how I went from a few posts a week to 2 posts a year.
Other endeavors-I decided that I was through with white girls and was going to write a movie about it. It would be called I’m Through With White Girls and would star a white man in the lead. Much funnier than what actually resulted. (Note: This concept did not arise until after I met my now wife.)This had me fucked up for a minute. I’m just playing- I did focus on other hobbies that had more of a return than blogging- poker(money) and boxing (physical).
I fucked my knee the fuck up. This resulted in arthroscopic knee surgery,which left me limping around and unable to work out. I decided to throw fitness and diet out the window and chose to eat ridiculous amounts of junk food,putting myself at risk of getting a NORE gut. Lack of fitness and motivation was further amplified by a lack of quality music and interesting content to write about.
While all this was going on I was engaged to my now wife. We had a small wedding, but even they require plenty of time and planning. Shit gets stressful and there gets to be some yelling and bickering. I wasn’t really checking for a lot of new albums at this point. My time was mostly consumed by figuring out what type of beer and liquor was going to be at the wedding/picking the DJ & photographer.
Did I mention that while I was crippled and engaged I bought a house? Yep, pretty soon that fat tax credit will be in my hands! I am going to need it after buying a 90 year old house in Pittsburgh. Add a promotion on top of all this and you have one busy 2009.
Yep, a depressing music climate along with real life shit can really derail a blogger. If you think it can’t happen to you, think again!
