I've decided to give up on Blogger. I don't want to be confused with the illegal/crappy mp3 blog culture here, and I feel like Tumblr is more "healthy." It feels empty/fake around here, and I'm lonely. Also, I'm tired of AdSense.
Still figuring out what I want my blogging experience to be and where I want to fit in internet culture. I want to write more, and not just via the (archaic?/irrelevant?) music review format. I feel tired/vexed by people who ask me to publicize their poorly-made music. I want to find some way to combine my webself as a musician and my webself as a writer/student/cool guy. All this felt like a perfect storm.
Sometimes I'm afraid that I don't know how to utilize the internet. Sometimes I feel really intimidated by it. I get the sense that there will eventually be a "Web Recession" once the last pre-internet generation dies off. Will it be a good thing or a bad thing that everyone is online, all the time?
This is the kind of stuff that I want to begin to explore/write about. I will still talk about music, but expect everything to be more personal, less journalistic, and more "Web 3.0." Until I get moving on Tumblr, follow my tweets @joshhungate.
Thanks very much for reading, and I'll see you on the new site :)
