I’ve decided to take a break.
I expect that this will involve me not posting for a few days, then some light blogging after that. But we’ll see – I might close up the shop for good. Maybe I’ll move to a proper site. Who knows.
I’ve often struggled with blogging. I’ve found the conflict between being an entertaining blogger and a reasonable one to be a bit much recently. I’ve long found that if I think too much about something I won’t publish it, but on the other hand, I want to express considered opinions that won’t be demolished by the first critic that comes along. Keeping tab of hundreds of issues is also extremely distracting, and I could point to several major issues that I’m simply not as up-to-speed as I’d like to be.
I was pondering this conundrum over lunch. When I returned to my computer, I pulled up Wikipedia and read this
Writers of both Batman and Superman stories have often compared the two within the context of various stories, to varying conclusions. Like Superman, the prominent persona of Batman’s dual identities varies with time. Modern-age comics have tended to portray “Bruce Wayne” as the facade, with “Batman” as the truer representation of his personality (in counterpoint to the post-Crisis Superman, whose “Clark Kent” persona is the ‘real’ personality, and “Superman” is the ‘mask’).
One of those things to think about.
I’m not really sure if this blog is worth anything. Yet people are reading it. the first is a reason to walk away, but the second is a reason to stay. So I’m taking a break for a while.
