When I first started my blog my main idea was to improve my written English and also share some of my opinions, but since then my blogging goals changed a bit.
So now I’ll write about the current state of the blog and also some things to come.
One of the most visited pages on my blog is the KZ guide, any person who doesn’t know me or doesn’t read my “about” page might think I’m just another guy who thinks he’s going to be a reviewer or make lots money from this hobby. Yea, sure…
These days nothing is further from the truth, I did in a very far past think I could sell some affordable gear on a shop, but online retail actually made me give up on that endeavor.
In a way, I’m glad for it, because some years ago a headphone shop opened in downtown Lisbon and it was very well situated. The shop was open for one year but the owner had to close doors. Why?
Well, people would actually visit it and try the headphones, but in the end, they would buy the gear online because the price was better.
So yea, I have no grand money making ideas for my blog.
Most people don’t know that I actually review KZ IEMs for fun and also because I use them daily. Plus there is a lot of people new to the hobby who can’t spend all the money I already spent on these IEMs.
Given the fact KZ is a very hyped brand on some forums I felt the need to share my opinions on some models because sometimes it’s hard to separate marketing bullshit from the honest reviews from people who actually pay for gear from their own pocket.
My main goal with the mini-reviews around here is to help new people into the hobby, some of them don’t have lots of money to try out new IEMs all the time, also it takes ages for some gear to arrive from China so every purchase they make must be carefully planned.
That’s also why I never actually went ahead and reviewed my Beyerdynamics or Grado headphones. People who buy those brands know exactly what they want.
I still keep writing about the state of the hobby, mostly pointing out bullshit when I see it if anyone has a problem with that they can go piss in another tree because this blog is mine. I’m not as aggressive as before but bullshits is bullshit and it will not smell less after some time.
I got some ideas to share my stencil hobby but work is keeping me a bit busy these days. It’s not forgotten and I will try to dedicate some time to it.
This blog is my main way to share my views about the world, one of the great things about WordPress is that I’m not in a social network bubble, even if some of my page views do come from Facebook.
In the past I shared many posts on that social network sadly I think only a few of my friends actually care about the stuff I write around here so I don’t share my writings in Facebook anymore. I still share on Twitter because users there are more informed about tech, plus I got some audiophiles who follow me.
As for things to come, I got some ideas but nothing too fancy. I will probably keep reviewing cheap Chinese IEMs but also from other brands.
I want to write about music in my free time, nothing too serious just “talk” about albums or songs I enjoy daily. The same goes for some books but I’ll avoid series and movies because everyone writes about that so I don’t want to beat that old horse.
As for the electronics hobby, these days my kids run around so much that I can’t even pick up my soldering iron, so no writing about that for a long time to come. I don’t have a safe calm space to work on my electronics so I only do some repairs when I really need to.
Anyway, I don’t want to share stuff just because I can, I want to share interesting things and projects that help other people. In a way, this blog does help many people, at least from what I can see on my visitor’s statistics.
I must say thanks, even if most of you don’t interact with me I’m happy to welcome you all to the journey of my life.
As for blogging goals, right now that’s about it. Peace.
