Okay so, it’s been a few days since we posted here. There were a few topics that I wanted to talk about, but time seems to keep escaping me in Lockdown 3.0. I know a few of my friends are feeling like this year is flying by already, but I just never seem to find the time to do the things I want to do. It is of course part laziness too, and this weekend leaves me with pretty much no reason not to blog. There’s something that I wanted to write about on here for some time now, because it considers the future of this blog, and how I want it to progress.
The exciting thing is, I have been working on creating some new content with a friend which can be expected on my YouTube channel, as well as here in a few weeks. Perfection requires planning! However this will be different to my usual posting on boxing topics, which is what I want to address. I’ve constantly changed my mind on whether or not I want this to be a boxing blog or not, because as you may have noticed I do a lot of boxing writing. It’s something I’ll always come back to and will constantly try to keep my hand in, but there’s other things out there that interest me.
When I started 2firs in 2016 on the trusty old site Blogger, my vision was to talk about topics that people would find interesting, with a view that is separate from your typical news style writer. The whole tagline ‘Just Real Talk’ was created through my Final Major Project at university to transform 2firs from a small blog, into a daily publication which only produced news and features that people would actually be interested in. Of course, as easy and successful as this was when I first started out, we can all agree this is a long way away from what I ideally want 2firs to be.
2firs is like my child, I’m very protective of it and I just want to see it grow. I hope that one day 2firs will be my main source of income, somehow, someway. For now, I will continue to discuss the latest happenings in boxing, but I will be talking about other things too. I want to broaden the horizon and make 2firs the destination for unique news and features. Everyone is copying everyone else and it’s getting boring, I’m not saying that I’m going to change the game, that’s ludicrous, but I’m going to be offering something different and original as best and as often as I can.
