It has been a long break since my last article on moseisleybroadcastingstation.com. Since then so much changed in my life that I decided to no longer blog on MEBS and to stop the project of the X-Wing Blog and Podcast. Therefore, there won’t be any new X-Wing related content anymore – at least at the moment. Due to major changes in my life (bad breakup, moved to a different city, new job, new hobbies) I stopped playing X-Wing and started bouldering and cooking as my hobbies. But after a few weeks, I found my appetite for writing becoming stronger again. So the time had come to decide what to do about MEBS and the podcast and if I still wanted to write and produce a podcast for a not very responsive audience.
As described above, I decided to no longer go on with MEBs. It was a nice project and I loved working with Heiko but the very tight corset we gave us ourselves by choosing to only write and podcast about X-Wing did no longer fit my lifestyle and the idea I had for my blog. I wanted to change something and start all over again.
The first big change I took was to stop podcasting. It always was much fun but also a very big workload and our audience was never very responsive so we never really knew whether the show was appealing or not. Because of the missing non-existing feedback and interaction with the listeners, I decided to stop this project.
The second major change is to – as you might have noticed already – change the language in the blog from German to English. By this, I want to open up my writing, my ideas, and my life for a wider audience to share with.
Third, I decided to widen the field of topics I will write about. In the past, I only wrote about the X-Wing game or related topics. In the future up from now, I will write about everything that gets my interest. at the moment this mostly is bouldering, fitness, and cooking but there will still be board game related content but in a more general kind of way. Also, there will be things like book reviews, climbing gym reviews, articles about the Boulder Bundesliga and so on. That’s why I also chose to change the name of the Blog from MEBS to daspotpourri.com as it will be just that – a wide and wild mixture of ingredients that make up me.
Fourth, there will probably not be a strict regularity in the content I will post. In the past, with MEBS we tried to put up a new episode every three weeks and a blog article in between episode. By trying to stick to the schedule I inflicted much stress and pressure on myself in a way that I lost all the fun and passion for the project. But if you want to see what I am doing in between my blog articles, you can follow me on Instagram! I post about the same things as on the blog there. Also, I will use Instagram to add pictures to my articles. So, follow me there and have a look. At the moment I have enough ideas for a few articles so there will be something up every week I hope. But if I don’t keep up the pace don’t be mad with me, just keep an eye on the blog, it will go on, I promise.
For now, I have several articles pre-written and will set them to publish once a week every Friday. Here is a preview of what’s to come:
– a book review on „The Push“ by Tommy Caldwell
– an article about the importance of resting
– a movie review on „The Dawn Wal“
– another book review, this time on a book about the „Huberbuams“
– some reviews on the Boulder Bundesliga and the gyms it’s held in.
