First off, high congratulations and praise for the 19 blogs that were selected to be a part of the blog pack. I applaud CK for expanding the count to 40 to incorporate as many of the new blogs as possible!
That said, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed. There were 39 blogs submitted, which means just about half of the blogs submitted were admitted. These days I blog almost exclusively about EVE, and if I can’t keep the quality of the blog above the 50th percentile – well, that’s a problem.
I’ve been powering ahead nonstop in EVE, especially with starting our own corp and I’ve been blogging about four times a week about my experiences. And I’m feeling what may be the front edges of burnout. I say that because I have a free weekend – not alot of work, wife and kids out of town – and I’ve spent less time than I expected playing EVE. I have a hunch I need to throttle back from my current pace.
Given that, I’ve decided to make some changes. First off, for the month of September, there will be only two posts a week – on Tuesdays and Fridays. Maybe if I slow the quantity, I can improve the quality. Secondly, only one of these two posts will be about EVE.
I’v been holding onto my birthday money, and I think its time to branch out and split my time some. I haven’t decided which yet. Originally I was going to do a Station Pass, as I enjoy the variety, and it would allow me to continue Pirates of the Burning Sea with my brother – but he has since stopped playing to concentrate on school, and so I may just par down to a single game. Maybe EQ to finally experience that epic server, maybe EQ2, which really offers the complete package, maybe something else. Suggestions (and a regular group or guild home) are welcome.
Hope you are having a great Labor Day weekend. So far I’ve spent most of my free time watching old sci fi movies! H G Wells anyone?
