Moving Away from Weekly Writing

Why I’m moving away from writing this newsletter every week (but I’ll continue writing, don’t worry)

Another peaceful moment on our hike to Murgseen, Switzerland

I’ve started writing this newsletter in December 2019, so almost two years ago. I’m proud that I’ve sent out close to 100 of those and stuck to writing every week (I only missed it once).

But since starting a new full-time job, I’ve noticed how writing on the week-ends gets harder. I need time to recharge, working in an office is exhausting enough for me. Plus I want to keep my YouTube channels going, I’m trying to make music and code a bit, and my partner and friends want to see me from time to time as well …

Don’t get me wrong – I really enjoy writing, I want to continue doing it. I enjoy sharing my ideas and ASMR recommendations. And I love talking to like-minded people who reach out to me.

Still, coming up with something to write about is hard. Even though I have thousands of ideas and full books in my head, I sometimes feel like my ideas aren’t good enough. I don’t want to repeat what everybody knows, I don’t want to send out platitudes like “just relax and take care of yourself, bro”.

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article that I thought was pretty good (about having bad memory and forgetting my past) – turns out I had basically written that same exact article a year ago (my old article was even better). Which proves that my memory is indeed bad, and that something is wrong with my head.

In any case; I’m going to continue writing. But instead of sending these out every week, I will do so whenever I feel like I have something to say. I’m also hoping that this will give me the opportunity to work on better and more detailed posts.
