It’s been some time since I published on this blog, enough that I lost the clear-cut, planned-out path I intended to follow.
But the aesthetic of NecroBlogger still feels clear in my mind: dive into thoughts pertaining to technology and/or gaming, then end with line breaks, crystallizing an idea with poetry.
I remember and recognize the tone of this blog, at least: explore retro games, childhood passions, and aging crevices of the Internet. Old things, old loves, old online spaces.
Then there’s the purpose: Write about these old things to continue to fight depression; since these are the things, at the end of the day, that feel happy, come back to them time and again.
This blog is a side project.
The blog I dedicated to exploring my autism after my adult diagnosis, Cleo’s Autism Awareness, is my main WordPress.
This blog is also casually written.
I don’t plan out my posts here. Rather they’re stream-of-conscious brainstorming of ideas, as I stretch my mind for creative writing. Lately most of that creative writing happens at Wattpad, although I am working on a couple all-to-myself handwritten projects.
For 2019, I want this blog to support those Wattpad and handwritten projects, as well as other creative pursuits I take that are ultimately rooted in my love for retro tech.
Namely I’m hoping to link my Wattpad nonfiction, “Tens & Aughts,” so the interests and happiness I find on NecroBlogger can extend to that other part of my life, spreading warmth around.
Other 2019 goals include reading two dozen paper books and two dozen e-books and audiobooks, which is why the living
room is reorganized
to bathe sunlight onto pages
in early morning or falling sun
to learn as much as I can
as long as I can, until
I write the perfect thing.
