Let’s start with some good news. Yesterday was my birthday. Hooray to me!
Now for other things here.
November is going to be an insanely busy month for me with work and also because I’m participating in NaNoWriMo. That’s National Novel Writing Month for those not familiar with that competition. I’ll be writing a whole novel all month long, so I won’t have time to do my normal reviewing schedule. I’d be lucky if I managed one review every Saturday assuming I have time to pull that off. Not only that, but I’ve also been finishing up things with my full-length Ospreyshire album which has been a huge undertaking. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Besides those things, I really have to be honest with you all about some things. I’ve been disillusioned with certain aspects of Iridium Eye. I get that I don’t focus on the popular or mainstream media in what I watch whether it’s movies, documentaries, anime, animation, short films, or the occasional series. While it has been fun using my film expertise and expanding my writing chops while expressing my opinions on movies or series most people have never heard of, but I’m starting to get burnt out a bit. Some of the harsher things I’ve watched this year factored into it while up-ending my understanding of film, but it’s also because I feel like I’m not getting as interested in film reviews and I feel that my content isn’t interesting enough. It certainly doesn’t help that having a Ko-Fi account never got any attention as selfish as I sound. There are certainly bloggers with bigger followers than me who do great things and I don’t begrudge them for their success. I never really fit into different blogging circles like how I couldn’t call myself an aniblogger, movie critic blogger, indie enthusiast, etc. I don’t know where or if I belong in these parts of WordPress and I do wonder if some people check out my posts just to be nice. Sorry. I’ve been dealing with some aspects of sadness and frustration now.
