Then There’s That

Posted by Ben on 2011-06-12

I think I should start a blog. Rather, I’ve thought about starting a blog for awhile. Overall, it would be good for me. Not in that I have a lot to say, but in that I should practice having a lot to say. After all, if I don’t practice having things to say, I’ll forget how to say things. Also it would also give me a chance to flex some creative muscles away from Dubious Company. I love the comic dearly, but sometimes a guy just has to write something else. It’s getting to the point where I can pretty much only write scripts. There’s a subtle art to descriptions that I’m rapidly losing thanks to Tria’s amazing arting abilities.

So, I should start a blog, sounds simple right? Kiiind of. The issue was that it was too simple. There are at least a million and one various blogospheres and easy blog start-up websites and programs (I may be exaggerating a bit) and in these situations I have an annoying tendency to over-analyze. You could say I was crippled with choice. You could also say I was crippled with laziness. Meh, a little from one and more of the other, but the effect was the same: sitting around not really writing much.

Recently, however, I had a sudden realization (in the shower, where all my best ideas come). I have a blog, the rant space of DBC basically functions as my blog. The only hold up was that I, in my misguided youth, opted to use this space for comic purposes only. Well, no more. From now on this space will be used for whatever well formulated thoughts come to my mind, as rare as that may be. Which should still be a step up from only updating this section when the stars align and the Earth shifts to the proper coordinates.

However, for those of you who ARE only interested in comic news, I’ll try to give everyone fair warning about WHAT type of rant you’ll be reading. Ideally, they’d all be pretty entertaining, but we’ll see. At any rate, that’s your comic news for this week. Hopefully I’ll have something slightly more entertaining next week to post up.
