It's been 1 year, 11 months, 3 weeks, 5 days, 2 hours and 6 minutes since my last blog post.
In that time I feel I have developed quite a lot as a person and one of the great things about forums is that you can read over all your old posts and see what you used to act like. Since I was 15 when I joined here and posted for the first time, the difference is fairly obvious. I don't exactly know what the difference is, but I can see it.
It's not only my internet behaviour that has changed over the past couple of years, but my entire self has changed. Which is to be expected of course but, I dunno. Just felt like mentioning that. I know I have changed and I know I will continue to change. I've just finished high school and life gets real now, or so I'm told. It's my job to figure out if that's true or not and if it is, when that is.
Yeah, I just got a little deep. Not really...
Anywho! In the past couple of years this site has been one of my most frequented sites. I am a frequent forum poster. I used to spend a lot of time in the Relationship Thread until I felt that going to the thread to ask for help all the time would only be nothing but counter-productive. That being said, I learned a lot from the guys in there and in return, did what I could to help those that I could. I've spent a lot of time in The Pit but with all the spam/ad bots there are lately, I more or less avoid the forums completely. The only exception being the ERG Thread. The guys in here have helped me so much when I was starting out with my 7 string, and I feel accepted in there now. Owning both a 7 and an 8 string and having a 4-5 years of experience playing guitar in general, I feel like I can offer advice to those that seek it just as well as the others, except for the seasoned vets. : It's a great community and I love being a part of it.
I decided to post this on a whim after seeing my old blog posts and despising the sight of them (yet another indication that I have changed both as a real person and as an internet avatar.) and have since ran out of stuff to write about.
I doubt anyone will read this, but if you do, leave me a comment or a kudos. It's always nice to know people care.
DisturbEDIT: I'm gonna go ahead and delete my old blogs.
Was interesting reading this man!
I can totally relate - it feels like this forum has helped me move transverse the teen years.
Its also nice to know, there's another Aussie on the other side of the country with similar interests.
It's a great community that has definitely helped me develop my musical taste, my guitar abilities but also the way I am now.
It's so weird that even though the distance is so great, two people could be anywhere in the world and have similar interests.
