So I’ve been AWOL around here for quite a while, and I know most people subscribed to this won’t have even noticed, and even fewer will have been bothered by it, but it bothers me. I’m not one to do something half-heartedly – unless I specifically start it with that parameter in mind! However in the past almost-year I have been feeling less inspired about what to post on here. It’s not that I haven’t had ideas, it’s that they’ve all been far too long or in-depth to write properly, or they’ve been about issues I don’t have the time to research fully and therefore do justice. I think this all comes from me being more world-aware than I was when this blog originally started, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it has cut down on my posting as I’ve wanted to do more rounded and informed posts. I’ve also been incredibly busy with university, a full-time holiday job and trying to get freelance film work. (But I know, I shouldn’t make excuses.)
So, where is this blog going?
Well, it’s not ending. I enjoy rambling and sharing my opinion far too much to let it disappear. I would like to rebrand it, however, moving to a less-frequent posting but better-quality content. I’d also like to tailor the blog much more towards film and screenwriting, though I will still be covering feminism, gender, LGBT+ issues and mental health.
These segments will be continuing:
- Screenwriting 101: I adore this series. It helps me keep a record of what I’ve learnt, as well as enabling me to talk on length about a subject I love. So, it’s sticking around. It’ll continue to do tips and tricks, detailed step-by-steps and just muse about screenwriting in general.
- Gender-Bending: this is a reboot of my ‘Amp up the andro’ segment which is now going to be tailored more towards a range of gender-related topics. Not women’s rights necessarily, but anything to do with androgyny, the gender binary, genderqueerness and non-binary stuff in general; from fashion to rants.
- Anything else! I will of course still be doing random posts, whether they be about politics or mental health or personal experiences or other film-related things. They’ll still be categorised by the usual tags and categories.
To help with sorting out all the new segments and helping any blog-visitors find what they’re interested in, I’ll be going back and re-titling old posts so you’ll now have fewer places to look through to find your little corner of the blog.
I hope you guys are looking forward to this year of blogging as much as I am! I’ll aim to do a new blog post fortnightly at the minimum. And as always, if you have any requests or ideas (even if they don’t seem related to the stuff above) then just ask!
