Fatso Rants

Where I’ve Been


Alright, so if you don’t want to hear a grown man complain, skip to the end for the tl;dr. It’ll save you some time.

Life got hard. Simple as that. I haven’t written a review in, excluding the Pot & Paddle stuff back in September, over six months. There’s a few factors leading into why I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus. Firstly, I’ll start with the biggest problems. I lost a couple of family members in the last year or so, and it started to take it toll on me. I thought I could handle everything and push on, but I kind of lost the desire to write and review. I had gone through the loss of a parent before and figured I would be okay, but this time it affected me in a way that made me less constructive with my writings. I had never lost the urge to write before, so it was a new sensation to me, and it was depressing as hell.

The next thing to bring me down was some relationship stuff. I’m not going into this very far, because it’s not worth the time, but I was in a relationship that ended abruptly. It kind of messed me up for a while. Thankfully, I learned from it and I’m feeling tons better about it.

Lastly, stress. I started a new job in the last year, picked up some extra work, and had some other things go on in life that just caused me to get a little stressed out. Over 1,200 people have visited the Fatso site in the last six months. I don’t want to let those people down. But that mentality kind of backfired and made me more stressed. That’s enough whining.

On to the good news. I’m back. I’ll be working on more reviews over the coming months and already have about 6 posts scheduled right now. I cannot promise that it’ll be the same as it was about a year ago. I had just started the site and was writing like a mad man. Things have changed in life where I don’t feel like I can do that as much anymore, but I’m going to try. I haven’t given up on the Fatso, just needed some time.

Thanks for sticking with me folks. I’m grateful to have readers at all.

TL;DR Life got hard. I bitched out for a minute. I’m back now
