Hello fellow music psychos!
Thank you very much for coming to my site and reading reviews that I have been writing in the last few years. This is definitely a passion of mine and I cannot thank enough for those who were involved in my Music Psychos page.
Today I wanted to let you all know that I have decided to take some time off from writing. In the past few months, I have struggled with writing articles, especially about bands that I 'had to' write. It has been always on my mind to figure out the reason and this article may explain well on how I feel.
I used to be brave enough to write bad reviews based on how I really felt about the band/music/album. About 2 years ago, I wrote this review of Super Chunk opening for Broken Social Scene and I got badly bashed for it. I received a number of emails and comments that made me scared of writing a true review. So I decided not to write anything if there is anything good for me to say about it. But then what is the point of writing about music when I cannot comfortably express how I feel? This is the main reason that I am taking a break until I become truly comfortable with what I write here.
Secondly, I have other priority now in my life and I need to put this on hold in order for me to focus on what matters the most to me.
I don't know how long this hiatus is going to be. but I am sure that I will be back when I am ready.
Thank you very much for all your supports and don't forget to follow your heart on what you do.
