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.

You should never be afraid to write or say what you think as long as it has good rationale. :) Creativity is subjective, so all opinions are valid.ReplyDelete
