I know I’ve kind of been saying this for a while now, but I’d like to have some more specific topics for blogs moving forward, with personal life/mental health sprinkled in there (since I won’t always have enough to say in that regard to fill a decent blog’s worth of content). Since I have limited time for this week’s blog, I thought I might use this opportunity to just rattle off some ideas of things I could talk about in future blogs. Some of these could end up being worked into videos instead potentially, but could work as blogs too. Pretty uninspired idea for this week’s blog, I guess, but let me know if any of this stands out to you or if there’s anything I’m not thinking of that could be interesting…
The Greatest Compliment I’ve Ever Received: This is an idea I’ve been tossing around in my head for some time now. The idea would be to actually have this be a collaborative thing, and get a bunch of my friends to send in submissions for this, just sharing the greatest compliment they’ve ever received. I thought it could be a fun little thing to do to promote some positive thinking and spread some good feelings rather than some of the more serious topics I have listed here. I think this would be a cool thing to do in video form as well, but I just don’t know if I’d be able to get people to send in video submissions for something like this. Regardless I really want to do more collaborative blog things like this Rick and Morty one I did back in 2017.
Does God Exist? And other such fun religious topics: Religion has always been an interesting topic to me. As someone who is firmly non-religious, I think I could go through some interesting thoughts on these topics in a personalized blog environment like this. I always wanted to do a video on my channel where I could discuss religion with one of my more religious friends back in the day, but it just never end ended up happening. I enjoy having meaningful conversations about stuff like this, so I think it would be fun to delve into for some more in-depth blogs.
What is the meaning of life? And other more focused philosophical questions: Philosophy is another thing I really enjoy pondering, but never have had much of an opportunity to delve into in a public setting. There are so many routes I can go down with this, and endless discussion to be had.
My experience in education: This is one that I’ve always envisioned as a series of videos I would do, but it just as easily could be translated to blog form if I’m feeling that more at the time. Basically, since I’m all done with my long history of public education I thought it could be cool to go in-depth talking about my experiences with each stage of education and putting it out there for the world to see. I’ve always thought this could be fun to do, and maybe therapeutic as well. I’ve never really seen anyone online do something quite like this, so I would definitely like to at some point, before I’ve forgotten everything in my old age.
My experience being involved in online communities: The internet has been a significant part of my life for most of my life at this point. I started being involved in different online communities around the age of 10 and haven’t stopped since, so I’ve been through quite a lot and met a lot of people I am still in contact with to this day. So I feel like there would be a lot of ground to cover here, just in recounting memories without any added message.
Talking about my passions in life, and principles that are most important to me: It could be interesting to really try to get to the heart of what motivates me in life and what things are most important to me, as well as just gushing about the things that I love.
Talking about specific games/movies/shows/music and how they have had an effect on me: This kind of blog would be reserved not just for any piece of media I’ve enjoyed but rather the ones that have really stuck with me since I experienced them, and which seemed to have a more profound effect on me.
More out-there topics, like hypothetical situations or alternate timeline talk (what if I never did this or what if I did that kind of stuff): Would love to go down rabbit holes of wild topics like this.
Well there you go! Those are just some ideas, and most of those I didn’t even have in mind until I started writing this, so thanks for that! Even just putting some of these ideas out there like this has gotten me more excited for the future of doing this blogs. Now it’s time to embark into some really uncharted territory and have some fun with this thing.
