First post aka The Confession
Hello, my name is Trevor and if you've known me a while you should already know what I'm going to say. If this is your first interaction with me then this is something you should probably know.
I'm an entertainment junkie. I love most forms of entertainment but TV is my main vice.
Now you are probably thinking; "He's just saying that, most people watch TV at some point during the day/week". To those thinking that you really have no idea.
But if you come with me on this journey as I explore blogging where I will share some of my thoughts on TV, film, actors and anything related, you might start to get an idea of why I love TV so much.
Why I started
For a while now I've wanted to start blogging but didn't want to use the usual channels that people use such as wordpress or blogger. At the same time I wanted to learn a few new skills.
As luck would have it I stumbled across a Kickstarter project that satisfied these needs when the idea of a blog was yet again at the forefront of my mind. I immediately fell in love with Ghost and was quick to invest.
It wasn't long before Ghost started to pick up steam and was eventually funded. What I loved about it was that it looked familiar to use and would teach me markdown (a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers).
Ghost has been in it's testing phase for a while and I was lucky enough to be part of it. Unfortunately I have been either too busy at work, doing personal projects or trying to get back on schedule to truly be immersed in it. This has meant that I have had to delay starting my blog for a few months now.
I've finally decided to get out of my own way however to try and fit it into my schedule.
They say that if you do something long enough it becomes habitual. I am a firm believer of this so I will have 2 main aims while doing this blog:
- Write 2 posts a week (minimum) over the next year
- Write a minimum of 100 posts after a year
If I am able to complete number 1 then I should also be able to complete number 2. If I complete both aims then blogging should be a habit by then.
I would also like to master markdown, have a number of different background images created, create a few videoes and cultivate my own writing style in this year. These I hope will filter through as I explore blogging over the next year.
What will I write about?
I've never done a personal blog before so this will be a new experience. I am going to mainly write about TV, film, actors and anything related.
The first few posts will likely cover topics I previously decided on as I have been delayed in starting but I still want to write about them. As it goes on it will become more in line with what I am currently watching.
This is a personal project so if it does gather some attention great. If not that's cool too.
I'll end this post with a quote from one of my favourite shows from the past. If you can name the show it's from you are either really cool or can use Google.
Look, if you want something, go get it. It's that simple.
