Hey everybody, this is just going to be a quick post about a couple of things I’ve been thinking about today. Just a couple of ideas up in my old brain noggin head thing.
I’ve been thinking about Avengers: Infinity War and how I’m actually pretty interested to see what happens in Part 2. I want to avoid spoilers but basically… the ending of Part 1 is a big deal and leaves a lot of questions up in the air. Marvel is going to have to really play this one right otherwise I think the next Avengers movie will be the beginning of the end of this whole superhero craze. A lot of people are starting to get sick of it already (myself included) but seriously I’m not sure how they will fix the problem. They’ve already shown that the infinity gauntlet can reverse time and bend reality and stuff like that, not to mention that Doctor Strange had a whole bunch of reality bending stuff in that movie that could easily be used to just “undo” the ending… but if they go that route, they seriously will mess up their entire universe. Anything that feels like a retcon (giving us new information that erases or changes what we’ve previously understood) or a deus ex machina (something showing up in the last minute out of nowhere to save everything) will seriously ruin the franchise at this point. Also they have to be careful when it involves bringing back the dead because it has the potential to totally destroy all semblance of “stakes” in the universe. I really think the next Avengers movie will either breathe new life into the franchise or COMPLETELY destroy its credibility. I can’t wait.
Second thing I’ve been thinking about is a thing I read about on a freelance writing website about using a personal blog as an advertisement for writing services. I’ve included little blurbs at the end of certain posts but there might be a more effective way to utilize this blog. As my car payments keep coming and my student loan payments are fast approaching, I need to start raking in some extra cash so I might be experimenting with this blog to make it more… monetizable. One website said to add a page specifically like “If you want to hire me” that has all of the info potential employers would need. Another said to add tags that are search engine optimized so that more people will find the posts through google and things like that.
I’m going to research more and try to make it work. Otherwise I’m probably going to have to find a 2nd job on evenings and weekends and then I’ll die of exhaustion. My normal full-time job already leaves me pretty wiped out by the end of the week, I’m not sure I’ll be able to handle a week that doesn’t have an end. Also then I’ll have no writing time and that will definitely mean that university was a waste of time. But I’m going to stay optimistic and try to be creative and see what I can drum up in the next few months.
Anyway, that’s what is going on with me. Hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for reading.
