I finally gave in.
Sex in the Theater began in 2010 – over three years ago at this point. It was founded off the remains of my previous blog effort, tehblog.cc
Teh Blog was supposed to be a team effort – all I wanted, more than anything else in the world, was to see a thriving blog where I had to compete to be the top poster among my closest friends. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be – no one cared about it as much as I did.
Teh Blog also differed in that it was made from scratch – hosted on the lovely x10Hosting service. I made a nifty looking layout and attached a blog courtesy of wordpress, but that was the extent of its “blog-ness.”
The eventual deactivation of Teh Blog and the subsequent creation of Sex in the Theater were both hardly noticeable – Sex in the Theater was especially overshadowed by the eventual creation of CRABcraft. The story of how that’s going is essentially a novel that I won’t go into here.
That really brought to light the core problem of Sex in the Theater though: I had no idea what the blog was for. When I could no longer upload gaming videos to CRABcraft I turned to Postcards From PanaC which meant I couldn’t post that kind of content here; really, the only content I could post were essays. As fun as it was to see how many students were going to plagiarize my work, it wasn’t fulfilling. Before I knew it, I wasn’t even interested in posting what little content I could.
When I attempted to change things up I found myself unmotivated; I tried music release reviews, movie reviews, comic reviews – the works. Even further down the line, I attempted to reinvent it again with a weekly super-post. I plotted out 2 months worth of content, but never fleshed out the first one.
Now here I am once again, going for broke. Just today I subscribed to own sexinthetheater.com for a year, and now the blog is in end game; if I don’t hit my stride by the time the subscription ends there will be no sequel. Scary, isn’t it?
I’m not afraid though.
Within the next week or so there will be some layout changes to better fit the new logo (same model, link in the blogroll).
I have some ideas for my next post, but nothing so rigid as my last attempt.
Let’s see what the future brings us.
