Stuff

Another day stretches away and another day of being unable to work due to The Internet not being a functional as required at the moment, which also means another day of earning no money. Fun times, but you do what you can and all of that other stuff.

I’m sitting here and it is evening and I find myself slipping into a state of not really feeling like doing much. I don’t feel much like writing; nor do I feel like doing anything related to this blog right now, or probably in the near future. Maybe it’ll improve, but there’s certainly a way that things are currently going and are likely to go in the future that are leaving me feeling that maybe it is time to stop doing this blog. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but sooner rather than later.

I’ve been doing Stupidity Hole for a while now and whilst I enjoy it sometimes, the thing is that it’s starting to take up far too much of my time. It’s getting to a point where it’s not doing much for me anymore. Of course that could change in the future, but right now I have to think about whether I should continue, or if my energies are better spent elsewhere.

Stupidity Hole is not exactly what one would describe as financially profitable. It never was started for money but rather due to my desire to keep throwing stuff into The Internet abyss after a few years of not doing much in the way of writing. I don’t want to run it for financial gain either, but it becomes more difficult to justify doing something that I’m finding too time consuming and decreasingly satisfying when I need to spend more time working on other things.

Admittedly some of those other things involve making money. There are things that I want and need to do that require having more, and I’m at a point where I’m exhausted from living with no safety net. I’ll admit that whilst I’ve been relatively poor for most of my life, my financial situation as it stands is, to an extent, my responsibility. Selling my photos isn’t helping to alleviate that as doing so, much like any other income outside of my job, generates very little, though that’s rather unsurprising.

There are other things that don’t involve money as much (if at all) that I keep on postponing that I really want to get back into doing. These things require more time than Stupidity Hole often allows.

I started this bit of writing off without any aim and this is what came forward. I’m not sure it’s what I wanted to write, but it’s what came forward, so I’m leaving it as is. I will keep doing Stupidity Hole for the time being, but I’m finding it increasingly difficult to remain driven to post anything here.

About Stupidity Hole

I'm some guy that does stuff. Hoping to one day fill the internet with enough insane ramblings to impress a cannibal rat ship. I do more than I probably should. I have a page called MS Paint Masterpieces that you may be interested in checking out. I also co-run Culture Eater, an online zine for covering the arts among other things. We're on Patreon!
