In which HD takes a break.
I’ve been struggling over the past few weeks to marshal the frenetic energy that has enabled me to turn this blog into a second (unpaid) full time job, an effort resulting in hilarious failure. It seems I officially need to to take some time off to reconnect with why I started doing this in the first place, take some time to be a fan again instead of just an information-spouting robot, take some time to figure out if the more professional direction things may be taking here is really what I want to do, and if so, to get all the necessary plans sketched out in order to move forward.
The bottom line is that HD used to be fun. It’s what I did to escape from the tedious obligation of work, but recently it’s become just another extension of the day job, one that invades my house and stares back at me every time I sit in front of my computer. It’s time to back slowly away and take the advice of everyone who’s been posting in comments recently, get some much-needed R&R.
So, yeah. I’ll be around, just not posting for a little while until I’m sure things are straightened out here and ready to continue. Whatever this may sound like I’m committed to the site more than ever, so please feel free to expect better things for the future. I know I am.
