Hello to the four friends and family members I have tricked into visiting the site this early on. Since you are here, you probably know why I started this place, but in case our fifth reader wants to know why the hell I’m mixing TV reviews with opinions on Wrestling and World Series recaps, this might be a good place to find out why.
I enjoy writing. Despite how often I don’t do it, I enjoy it quite a bit. What I’m not too fond of is sticking to something I’ve started. I don’t know why, but I apparently hate it. I wish I didn’t. I wish my first blog site (Angels Nation) had more than 4 posts a year, but sometimes, I want to write and I don’t want it to be about The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. I wish my video game website (Day One DLC, in partnership with Alex Gormley) was still going strong with reviews and opinion pieces to this day, but lives are crazy things and Video Games sadly don’t always have a strong presence in them. It’s not that I don’t continue to love Baseball, or Video Games, or any of the other plethora of things I’ve set out to write about on a daily or weekly basis… it’s that only writing about those things on a day-to-day basis can be draining. Especially when the Angels are average (I’ll say it 100 more times before I die: Writing about a bad team is fun, writing about a good team is fun, but writing about a .500 team is DREADFUL) or there aren’t Video Games coming out (January-February and May-August, I’m looking at you!).
So my plan with Josh Can’t Blog (which has been an idea for a long time, hence the change in Twitter handle about a year ago, but I’m a really good procrastinator too) is to write every day, or at least nearly every day, on whatever is striking my fancy that day. I might review a movie/tv show/album I just enjoyed (or didn’t enjoy), I might make a list of the top 10 best fast food hamburgers (Spoiler Alert: In N Out’s Double Double is #1), I might rant and rave about a move that one of my sports teams made (for future reference: Angels, Ducks, NY Jets, Seattle Sounders, Southampton), or it could be a random piece on a miscellaneous topic that came to me while I was in the shower.
Best case scenario, I turn this writing thing into a career and become the next Bill Simmons or Nate Silver (minus the Math).
Worst case scenario, I do what I do with everything and give up in two weeks and this was an exhilarating 13 day experiment.
