I found myself pondering this question today as I sat down preparing to write this post. You see a long, long, long time ago, I made a promise that I would not just randomly throw up "filler" content. You see I always felt that it was better to have nothing, then to have something that was terrible. Over the years I have flirted with ending this philosophy, but in the end I just cannot bring myself to write that kind of content.
So why am I bringing this up today? Well, the honest truth as I sat down tonight, I was feeling somewhat tired and really not at all in the mood to spend five more minutes in front of my computer. After all, I worked a ten hour day, rushed to eat my dinner, and just got done with over two hours of recording footage of myself, DanDebacle, and Kramer playing Civilization V. After all of that, I honestly was going to throw up some five minute scribbled down thought of the day post, but you all can find that sort of thing on Facebook, Twitter, and whatever new social site is all of the rage.
The thing with "filler" content though is that helps on days like today. One thing I have learned over the years of writing for Holy Shock, is that consistency matters. So the question then becomes, does one resort to random pictures of gaming related items, quotes, or other such things? Or does one knuckle down and take pen to paper... er fingers to key, and put in a little elbow grease. I think I know where I stand on that, but how about you all? What do you think of blogs and other sites that just throw the "filler" content up? Do you like it?
I know I do not and so I am going to give it everything that I have to provide you with original content, whether it be my thoughts on a topic such as this, new videos that have been created, or insights into popular games. At the end of the day, I want to look at what has been published on Holy Shock and be proud. It may not always be the best, but I know it will have been my best. See you guys next time!
