Regularly Scheduled Blog Bitching

You know...I really would like to make this blog more like it was back in the old, pre-2004 election days. I spent a lot of time reading about issues, checking other blogs and commenting on them, engaging in discussions here, etc., and generally enjoyed it. If nothing else, it satisfied the constant need for an audience that has been a driving force behind my writing/film/music for as long as I can remember.

Unfortunately, no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get back into that zone. I keep reading through my archives (especially from May to November of 2004) and wondering how I was able to crank out so much pure substance and still have time for other stuff, despite the fact that I've been sitting at home for over a month now, and it seems like if I try to write one detailed post, the entire day is gone.

I'm really not exaggerating; I genuinely want this whole blogging thing to be the way it was then, when a post with five or six insightful comments wasn't unusual, and I actually had my writing linked and became semi-well-known in certain blog circles. However, I realize that it's my job to make that happen, and it seems like that part of me just isn't there anymore. Weird.

No, I'm not announcing a hiatus or trying to "quit" again, nor am I looking for fake sympathy. I'm just having a serious episode of dontyouwishyoucouldgobackitis, and unless the prescription is "more cowbell," I really don't know what to do about it.

Holy crap, a Napoleon Dynamite reference and a Saturday Night Live reference in the same sentence...I really am losing it.

On a semi-related note, I will try to work with the requested post topics, but when I came up with that idea, I was thinking more along the lines of "ask me what I think about (insert topic here)," not "give me a subject to write a boring historical essay about." I know you're probably just trying to be funny in a sadistic way, but I thought I'd make it clear what my intentions were. However, since I try to maintain a reputation of honesty, I will attempt to work with the topics that are there so far. But feel free to add more serious ones.

All right, I have to stop with the blog-emo bullshit before I start listening to Dashboard Confessional or something...

Historical essays don't have to long and boring. Check out this for example.

And I know what you mean about the blogging. I look back on stuff I wrote back '03 and '04 and can't for the lifa me understand how I wrote it all in such relatively short writing sessions. I think it's just a passion thing. When yer into it you can't wait to get it all down. When yer not that into it all ya want is the damn thing to be written already.
