It has been months since I wrote anything on this blog. Truth be told, my life in the last year could be called madness. I went through a lot for the last 10 months or so. But I will not write anything about it. I learn that I tend to share my personal stories, or sometimes I like to write about self-improvement. I must be influenced by authors/bloggers like Cal Newport and Scott Young. Sadly, I am not really good at improving myself, and my personal stories are not interesting, at least at the moment. I know you don’t care about it either, so I will not waste more of your time as well as mine.
Last year, I tried to write another blog on music but failed. The approach was wrong. I wanted to mimic music review sites without having any deep knowledge of music. I should have written about my favorite music, not things that I think would impress readers. I will write again though. The reason is my Sennheiser HD 650 headphones. These babies surprise me even though I own several so-called hi-fi (or mid-fi if you like) headphones before. They are so addicted that I usually stay up late just to listen more music. They are so musical that I believe it is worthwhile to share my joy with others. It makes me believe writing a blog about music is a great way to relax.
As I said above, I like to have something personal in my blog. After all, I do not want my blog to be another newspaper. It should reflect my thoughts and my personality. On the other hand, I hate to write about my personal life. Music will be a nice solution. By discussing my favorite albums, you will be able to learn more about who I am and how I think. Maybe you will understand me much more than ever before because music is a big, big part of me. It is also great if I can make friends with people who share my passion for music.
I also debate with myself whether I should write my blog in Vietnamese. Writing in Vietnamese will make it easy to read for the majority of my friends. Maybe it is a good thing. However, most of my friends don’t care about my taste of music. Those who are serious will need to read in English anyway since most in-depth articles on the internet are only available in English. Remember, English is the universal language. There is no way escaping it. If I talk about a Vietnamese album or a Vietnamese artist, I will still use Vietnamese. I think it is quite self-explanatory.
Besides this blog, I think in the future I will focus more on music in general. I have decided that I must be good at playing a musical instrument. I will save up money to buy an instrument again. I always dream that I can wow people with music. Before you judge, please, just let me dream.
