Where have I been?
You might have been wondering this, but fear not for I am still here. It’s been nearly a month since my last
confession post and I’m very sorry for being over neglectful. I do hope you can forgive me dear reader. I’ve been developing quite a few things on a personal and creative level.
Personally. I was having a rough time with my writing process and also a lack of motivation. Near the start of the new year I mentioned that I wanted to write better content, and I meant that, however to produce such content that is thoroughly researched or thought out and well put together, takes time. More time than the posting schedule (twice a week on Tuesday’s and Fridays) would allow. At this I felt drained and defeated because of the dissonance I felt between making something I was satisfied with and also keeping to a schedule to not disappoint my readers and all those that support me.
This started to take a toll on me emotionally and I decided to take a step back from the blog to get some clarity and to redefine why I started this blog in the first place. While I would be ecstatic if I could actually write well enough to make a viable career out of writing, I take more pride and joy in creating something I’m satisfied with.
That being said, I obviously put a lot of myself into what I do. I also mentioned not too long ago that I had been toying with the idea of creating a separate blog, or blogs, for my more creative projects and my articles on mental health and social issues. Well, I’ve made the decision to do just that.
I’ve been working on migrating half this site over to a new domain, as well as layouts and logos and all that (which of course I’m designing myself because I’m kind of a perfectionist). This domain (celichan.com) will be my personal and creative blog where I’ll post creative projects, like the stories and poetry people seem to enjoy, narrations/audio readings, art work, and my personal thoughts and experiences.
The other domain, which I won’t share here just yet till everything is ready, will be more professional (something that I can work on for professional development as a writer/blogger and aspiring mental health professional), and will cover the same topics my articles tend to cover including psychology/counseling, self improvement, social issues, and technology.
In addition to these two, I’m also developing another website that involves my interest in geek/pop culture and gaming. I’ll be streaming on Twitch every once in a while and probably writing game reviews or unnecessarily detailed psychoanalysis of certain games or anime.
With these changes happening, I probably won’t be posting too often, or at all really on here, as I continue with getting all this finished. I only graciously ask for your continued support and patience. And if you have any suggestions for me, feel free to leave a comment. As always, thank you very much for reading and I hope you’re as excited as I am for what’s to come!
