a sincere apology…

April 3, 2010

Dearest blog,

I am sorry. I am sorry for neglecting you these past few months. Truth be told, I’ve had more pressing (and interesting) things to do than updating you. That’s OK, you can hate me if you want. You see, between final-year uni, White Noise shenanigans, my new job as marketing assistant for QUT’s Creative Industries faculty, I just simply haven’t had the time. Not to mention the stupid tumblr I have to keep updating every week for my new media class (for anyone super-keen, you can check it out here).

Way back in the dark ages of 2008 when I first started you (despite numerous reincarnations, the name still stands- thanks Modest Mouse), I was full of hopes and dreams, and well- the belief that anyone would actually want to read what I have to say. Not that nobody does – thanks, 3 readers, you’ve been great – but you know what I mean. When I resurrected you last year amongst new-found career aspirations, I hoped I could make you into a little star of the local blogosphere- nothing amazing, but still something that was focused, and worth reading. While the latter may be questionable, I honestly did feel you helped me through my second-year uni blues.

Now blog, never fear- this is not the end. I just realise now that there are more important things than keeping you up-to-date. When I find something I actually want to write about- well, I’ll come crawling back. But until then, I don’t see much point in writing just for the sake of it. Until then, I feel I have ditched you for the ADHD-version of blogging: twitter. Since that has become all-consuming, I’ve found less and less reason to write here.

Anyway, dearest bloggy, I do hope you forgive me. Until next time!

Sincerely yours,

Will.

Today I decided to jump on the bandwagon and create a Tumblr account. For the uninitiated, a Tumblr blog (or a tumblelog) is more of a short-form way of blogging than blogs like say, this one. Kind of a cross between this and twitter, but without the 140 character limit. But never fear, 3 readers, for this blog will continue to be updated as much as humanly possible. While good news will stay focused on all things music/marketing/media, slightly bored and severely confused will be more miscellaneous ramblings from my life in general. Kind of like digital diarrhoea.
