Holy Shock was never intended to be anything more than a blog written by some guy who loved playing video games. I really don't know where that all changed and how it managed to stray so far from what it was intended to be. Over time, I lost the joy I found in writing the blog and I began to try to chase trends, grow the blog into something else, and Lord knows what else? In the end, I simply walked away from it. From time to time over the years, I would stick my head in and drop the infamous "update" post that bloggers do when they really have nothing else to talk about, but want to hold onto that dream. Those posts tend to lead to nowhere though and they grow farther and farther apart until you see the "last person out, please turn off the lights" post. I am pretty sure I wrote like five or six of those around here at various points. Is that what this post is? I hope not. I actually want to bring Holy Shock back to life as a place where I am just the guy who has a passion and wants to share it with the world.
This time around, there will be no schedule of when you can expect a particular post about a particular topic. While I love a good schedule and maintaining a routine in my personal life, it just never meshed well for me when trying to write. It always made me feel extra pressure which led to anxiety. Isn't that silly? I created a situation where something that was meant to be fun became something that created a lot of anxiety for myself. So we are going to avoid that and instead just focus on whatever things are on my mind when I get a spare moment to sit down and tickle the keys. Having said that, I hope you all are having an amazing day/evening and I will see you next time!
