This is a hell of a downer to start this article with, but I wanted to show you, the reader, what conditions it was written in. As of this article’s release, we’re all still under lockdown, and my office work’s only gotten harder. The area I live in is a designated red zone, and I keep getting notified about infection zones expanding further towards the building I live in. And with all of that going on, I’ve had the bare minimum time available for self reflection.
So I figured, hey, you know those clip-show episodes in a lot of TV shows? The ones that play back specific scenes from earlier seasons and show you how far we’ve come, and how we used to be? Let’s do something like that.
And thus I decided to read all the articles I ever personally wrote for The Amateur Media Blog, to see what I thought of them today. Would I cringe at my earlier writing? Would I find something great and wonder how I ever wrote any of it?
And, well, both of those things happened.
