This makes me sad to write this, but here it is: I'm thinking of quitting this blog. Or at least putting it on indefinite hiatus.
My reasons are twofold:
1) I've lost interest in blogging about TV. In part because with nothing on except trashy reality TV (which I love, but let's face it, it's not very pithy stuff), I've postponed blogging to the point where I started to think, maybe all these shows aren't worth blogging. And in part because I don't know how important TV is in the grand scheme of things, and it makes me wonder if I have something else more valuable to write about. Which I do. (I explain more below.) I love, LOVE TV, and am a self-certified TV expert. Even the shows I don't watch, I know enough about them to carry on a conversation about them. That part of me will not change.
2) Even if there was a ton of stuff on, I'll have to quit next month, anyway, when I start law school. How will I blog about TV when I won't be watching TV? So I guess now is as good a time as any to put this blog on hold.
I won't say I'm ending Linda's TV for good. I am always going to be a TV fan, and I'm always going to watch my shows. I am always going to have opinions about the state of the TV industry. And I am certain I will always be able to pinpoint with 95% accuracy what shows will fail just by watching a 15-second commercial spot for it. That kind of skill doesn't just die. ;)
But consider this my last post about TV...for now. If you have any questions (my ten darling readers), or if you ever want to chat about shows, I will always be up for that. You know where to find me.
Now I have some more news.
Since I am going to law school, I won't have any kind of social life for the next three years. So I am thinking...of starting a law school blog. That way, people can still keep up with my life, and how I'm faring in school. And the blog will allow me to reflect on my education, my thoughts on what I'm learning, and the people around me. And if someone out there is considering law school, maybe my blog will help them figure out if that's what they want. I don't know. More than anything, I'm thinking this blog would just be a way to track my journey in school and see how I'm learning and changing. If/when I start the new blog, I'll post the link here.
So there you have it. When one blog closes, another one opens.
And who knows? I might be back for more TV blogging someday.
Until then, always, always remember this: Life's too short to watch bad TV.
