Looks like you're going to be stuck with me for a little while longer
I want to thank everyone for the input after the last post. You gave me a lot to think about, and while I'm still not entirely sure what the future of this blog holds, I felt liking capping today so I'm taking that as a good sign.
I've decided to test out a slightly new post format (aka, the one Caitlyn uses) so in the future those of you who are just here for the caps don't have to scroll past my babbling rants to get to the good stuff.
Anyway, as I was saying, I'm still not entirely sure the direction I want to go in, but I have to say the time off did help. At the beginning I really didn't miss captioning at all, and I honestly thought that I might be done here. But sure enough the urge returned this evening, so I guess my career isn't over just yet.
With that being said, I have a feeling my already dismal production rate might fall even further. But I've noticed that recently I had been forcing myself to create because I felt like I should, instead of capping because I wanted to. This was a habit I picked up when I was first starting as a way to force myself to write more to increase the quality of my captions, but at this point I think it's been doing more harm than good.
Hopefully this will lead to the captions I do create being more interesting (I hesitate to say "better" as I might start going off in some less popular directions) pieces instead of just continuing to churn out cookie cutter caps.
But anyway, that's the plan for now. I'll let you know when something changes.
