Number Five

As I hit this, the fifth birthday of my dear blog, I wonder if its current state justifies the milestone such a number implies. I'll be the first to admit that this latest year has probably been the worst of all five, but what's worse is how a part of me wonders whether I'll ever get it back to how it used to be (having over a thousand hits per week is a nice thing to claim after all).

Now that I'm doing something I love with my free time, perhaps I literally have something better to do than to write. This is a shame, since it'd only take a bit of time management to write something, especially since I have over 50 draft posts waiting to be written up and published.

So no, perhaps it's not the lack of time which is the cause of this ennui. Perhaps it's more to do with how I have nothing left to say, or rather more accurately, no one left to say it to? There comes a stage where after talking so much, often to no effect, you wonder what the point of it all is. Or perhaps I've now actually have just said it all already.

Whatever the case I have no doubt that this blog will be around for the next year and thereafter; if anything (and much to the chagrin of almost everyone who still reads this) I'll still be reviewing the films, games and restaurants that I have the chance to check out. And of course there's always the chance that I'll get over myself and return to writing some of the stuff many of you have said you've enjoyed in the past.

Until then though, thanks for sticking around. Happy Birthday, Radio Shak.


  1. I agree about the ennui. I really don't know what the hell to write about anymore. I prefer reading other people's blogs.

  2. I do think that if I had an office job I'd write more :) I mean I would like to get through those drafts at some point.

  3. I've only got a around 5-6 drafts.

    I actually have one from may 2006. I read it and almost puked from the gayness

  4. Well Mash that just means you *have* to post it!

    Actually some of my older drafts make me cringe too. I think half of them wouldn't make it to publishing, even if I had the time.

  5. happy Birthday Radio Shak. Gotta keep blogging just to give me some free entertainment :D

  6. I second else are we meant to keep ourselves entertained at work?!

  7. No, please, not the reviews! ANYTHING but the reviews! Arrrrggghhh!

    What I mean is, happy birthday.
