It’s been a while since I posted anything on here, and to my regret that inactivity has begun so quickly after the start. The idea of a blog didn’t leave me at all, no, it stuck with me more than I dare admit. What kept me from writing was the limitation I gave myself on the format of the blog, which, unfortunately, felt too restricting.
What I found is that the format hardly fit with things I wanted to write about at moments I felt the urge. Of course improving oneself is a big part of life, in my life for sure, but it’s not enough. I eventually figured out that I would hate it if I couldn’t post some philosophical rambling or write a piece on something interesting I encountered because it would be out of place on my own blog. That’s why I decided to change the format and make it less one-sided.
From now on, this will just be my personal blog. This means I still will be looking at areas of self-improvement, but that the range of subjects will become broader as well. As mentioned I need more of a place where I can go on educated rambles than a place where I force myself into a single subject.
The near future
At this moment I have a few things in mind to work on right away. First of all I will continue with my findings on minimalism, something which took a bit more of a mindset change than anticipated, but which helped me a lot eventually, although I don’t want to give away what it did to me exactly. It would be a shame not to finish this series as planned, so I will continue with it, albeit a bit later than planned.
Other than that I’m currently reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and whilst discussing this with a friend I found that the theories of moral philosophy are quite applicable to the book. I plan to write a piece on that and hopefully see some reader insights as well. And don’t worry if you’re unfamiliar with these subjects, I will try to keep everything approachable by giving plenty of background information.
The later future
It’s hard to make any promises on what content I will post in the future, especially regarding recent history [pause for laughs], but what I plan is to post pieces that might grant some new insight in an area of life, pieces that might be challenged in their train of thought and pieces that might suck because you totally disagree. I hope for this blog to become my spot on the internet where I can post my thoughts and a place for discussion with those who like to read them and react on them.
That’s all I have to say right now, we’ll see what the future holds.
