I remember back in January when I made my case about being offline, I argued that it will give me more time to write to this blog as not being on social media and not getting distracted all the time will benefit me more. That statement still perfectly stands for itself as I have been able to focus my attention to more important tasks myself like my / our life. I also really wanted to spend more time writing to this very blog, but that has not turned out the way I imagined.
I think if I really want to be honest with myself I wrote a blog post about once in every one and half month this year. Let's face it, that is not much in any level - I think I have written more emails recently than blog posts, not sure that counts though. Having this blog on the internet since 2016 and starting it for the very same reason I started my YouTube channel is very simple, to share my passion about Star Trek and other sci-fi shows I like, hence the sub header I keep using is "where no Trekkie has gone before." A sort of reminder that there is more to me and to this blog than just Star Trek.
I have probably mentioned this a few time, but running a blog - no matter how successful it is - cost time and money. Now in terms of cost I pay for this website in an annual basis and that has been the case since 2016. Even with the basic "starter" package the cost is reasonably high if I don't put the effort into the writing process. That's where the problem is. I have barely did any writing on this blog in recent months or even recent years, and this used to be different back when I started. Obviously now we are in 2021 and the site and the Trekkerprise brand is coming up with it's 5th Birthday which is a nice thing to experience. Only if I would have made this blog to my five years mission, haha. It's really an ongoing mission to be really fair and I should have really been more consistent with writing over the years.
As I come closer to my renewal time, the one question that comes up quite often in my head is "to blog or not to blog?" It's a fair question really as I could use that money elsewhere, but I do feel that this site would benefit from more writing and more attention. So after pondering a lot in recent weeks I have decided keep the blog and also push myself a bit more to publish articles once a week - probably every Saturday - and to be more consistent. I own this to myself and for that handful of people who still follows me here. For you all, a big thank you for keep checking back to this site, I will try to put more effort into this and share my thoughts more often.
So, starting this week, blog posts are coming at your way at least every Saturday with Star Trek and sci-fi themed articles and more. Until than as always live long and prosper, be safe and keep on Trekking. _\\//
