So I’ve decided to start blogging again!

So, this post isn’t really intended for any audience other than myself, but for whoever is reading this…I’ve decided to start blogging again!

I haven’t blogged at all since Year 12 or 2005 so this is kind of exciting for me.

So why have I suddenly decided to start blogging again?

Well, the primary reason is because I’ve started reading again over the past few months and realised that I need a way to remember all this new knowledge I’m taking in. After coming across a few blog posts/articles on the web, namely from Derek Sivers and James Clear, I got the idea to blog about what I read as a way to cement my learning.

And come to think about it…I kind of miss the old days where I was a massive introverted nerd and did the things I really enjoyed such as playing computer games, reading shitloads of fantasy novels and just bumming around without a care in the world. Life kind of got in the way. You know, working full-time and all that grown up stuff. ‘Life.’ I’m still trying to figure out what that word means, but that’s another story…

Anyway, I’m not falling back into my unhealthy habits from the old days (like playing 10+ hours of video games per day) but I am trying to bring back some of the good things I really enjoyed. And I think writing is one of the things I enjoyed but kind of lost interest at some point. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I didn’t have an audience that I stopped? Maybe the need for an outlet dissipated? Who knows, but I’ll think about it. Maybe I’ll blog about it some time.
