Well, well, well... look who finally showed up!
Hey guys, I have finally found a little bit of free time and I thought it was high time to dust off the keyboard and check in with everyone. I hope everyone has been having an awesome summer! I cannot believe that we are now heading into Fall. No really, because it is like ninety degrees here where I live!
So, when last I checked in, I spent the entire post talking about how my life was changing and then went on to talk a little bit about things I was hoping to do with the Holy Shock brand, I suppose that's the right word. Well, as we can see, I did not really do too much around here. Now my YouTube channel has stayed somewhat active during this time, but consistency has always been my Achilles heel as it were.
So today, I am hoping to turn that corner and begin to spend a little time focusing on the site as a whole. Much as my life has been changing, so too has the games I have been playing. Where I once spent an ungodly amount of time playing World of Warcraft, I now spend far less time playing and more time enjoying games such as Hearthstone and Minecraft.
I have recently delved into the world of cryptocurrency, which is mind boggling at best and scary as Kil"Jaeden in a dark alley in the middle of the night. However, I am really enjoying learning about the various coins and programs in that marketplace. I am sure if you pay attention to my YouTube channel, then you realize that I have definitely gone all in on cryptocurrency.
Within the last week, I believe I have found my newest interest... silver! I don't know if it is the kid in me who thought pirates were cool or if it is the part of me that as a kid thought Scrooge McDuck was the coolest cartoon character ever, but poured silver bars and coins are just mesmerizing to me! So I have really been diving deep into gathering as much knowledge as I can about the various types of silver (constitutional, junk, and poured).
Aside from the gaming, cryptocurrency, and silver, I have been spending most of my free time with my family enjoying sports and everything that the summer has to offer. It's been a crazy wild ride the last few months and it is not looking to settle down at all, but you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way!
So that brings me back to Holy Shock and what the future holds for the site. I have spent a lot of hours over the last few weeks really thinking about how and what to focus on around here. At the end of the day, the reason that I feel that Holy Shock drew attention was because of the personal aspect of the blog.
In the very beginning, this blog was a form of therapy for me. I had lost my Dad and was in a pretty rough spot. Holy Shock became a way for me to focus my mind on something other than all the bad and instead, share aspects about gaming and life from my perspective. Over the years, it grew and changed, much as the games we played changed. During the course of my time with Holy Shock, you all have been with me through the death of my father, changing jobs multiple times, dealing with being diagnosed with anxiety, divorce, and probably a million other things I cannot think of at the moment. In truth, Holy Shock, and the community behind it, have become as much a part of my life as my own family. So how could I ever step away from such a supportive community?
The answer is that I cannot! Instead, I plan to go back to the beginning and just focus on sharing the things in my life that interest me. I plan to merge the blog and the videos together here at the site, as I always had intended. Most importantly, I plan to continue this journey we began back in 2008! So get ready! Holy Shock is only just beginning!
