November has come and gone. And with it, I met my goal for this blog. I successfully wrote an article daily about a different album. I’m glad I did. There are lots of reasons, but the primary reason is, I set the goal to do so and met it.
While I wrote reactions to different albums, I found it becoming easier to get the words to flow. Mostly. Some days were more difficult than others. Some albums just forced me to struggle a bit to come up with the words. And struggle is a good thing. It is how we improve, how we become stronger.
At the same time, while struggling at times, I found that there were times I didn’t want to write about a particular album. I wanted to write about other aspects of music. Maybe it was an announcement of some sort. Perhaps I had been thinking about other aspects of music (I did write an article about how black metal is quickly becoming the most fascinating sub-genre of metal).
And so, with the 30 albums in 30 days goal being met, I plan to continue writing, just perhaps in a slightly different way. I will still be doing album reactions. However, I will also be writing articles that are more topical in nature. Heck, I will even include some articles about how I listen to music. After all, I have purchased more pairs of headphones over the years in search of the perfect pair than any sane person. The least I can do is see if others can benefit from my stupidity.
So, I hugely appreciate those who have been reading, and hope you will continue to do so, even as the content broadens in scope.
