Changes for the new year

I don’t generally subscribe to the whole New Year’s Resolution business. This is honestly just a complete coincidence that these changes are going to happen right after the year change, but anyway, starting this year…

  • My fancy domain name and premium plan expire in a few weeks and I’m not going to be renewing them this time because money’s going to be a little tighter this year and I can’t justify blowing $99 on a domain name that has no real use other than vanity. I’ve never touched a single one of all these extra premium features and I doubt I ever will. I’m just not into self-promotion and advertising that much. I’d rather just continue to keep things casual and I can live with having a small audience because at least its made up of cool people.
  • Speaking of keeping it casual…I’m going to be stepping down from A Most Agreeable Pastime and just going to go back to more casually sporadic posts here. It was nice to try something a little more formal, but again, recent time and money constraints due to the real world are making me want to back away from any unnecessary obligations or restrictions.
  • Since it’s going to be getting all casual again, I will be taking the opportunity to occasionally write about completely random shit that isn’t about games, comics, or movies for once. I think I’ll probably start a series on music later in the year and if you thought I was joking about that top 10 pictures of my cat list, I assure you, I was not.
  • I’d also like to finally take some time to work on a personal project or two if I can manage to find the time and the will. I’m not going to bother getting into details at this point because who knows if I’ll ever even actually get started, but if I finally do, I’ll be sure to share at least some of the results here.

That’s about it. I’ll still be doing the same old Now Playing, Watchin’ Stuff, and Now Reading type stuff, so I guess things aren’t going to change all THAT much, but you never know what the future will bring…

  1. I hope 2018 holds lots of good stuff for you! I took a similar decision to go a little more ‘casual’ a year or so ago, and I’m really enjoying the extra freedom it’s brought in terms of post subjects and frequency.

    Top 10 pictures of your cat? I’ll be looking out for that post.
