I know I’ve said that that I’m going to start posting again soon, but seeing that I wrote my last entry almost a month ago, I guess I need to come out and say it: it’s not going to happen.
Not in a couple of months anyway. After some thinking, I’ve decided to put the blog on hold on for a little while. The fact is, even if my recent state of unemployment has given me the free time that I’ve been so desperately wanting since forever, I have to be realistic and focus on more urgent things at hand – mainly my upcoming board exams in June. As much as I want to make time for blogging, it takes up chunk of time that I can afford to give. I have long since accepted that I am not the best memorizer and that I have the attention span of a 2-year old, so I need to work extra hard to be able to go through all the stuff I have to read, and there is a looooot! Just looking at my pile of reading materials makes me queasy every time.
I’ve also decided to take a break from accepting commissioned design work, and my work calendar has been pretty much empty (not to mention my wallet gahh). Sometimes I get a bit scared that this decision has been setting me back, especially since I’ve been getting more than a few inquiries, but I know this is the right choice.
I’ve been thinking a lot of how to streamline the blog and take it to the next level, and I’ve come up with some pretty exciting plans so far that I can’t wait to get started on once I (hopefully) get past the board exam hurdle. I don’t want to elaborate, but I definitely want to focus on creating more original, quality content to really establish this as a design blog. I know blogging has been all the rage in the Philippines for quite a while now, but it’s mostly been centered on fashion bloggers. I think it’s about time we built a design blog community as well, and this is a goal hoping to venture into as well. Big dreams yet again, but have I ever been content with otherwise?
So there, I’ll see you guys in June! Hermit mode is officially on.
