10 Years on Sputnik

Hard to believe it's been 10 Years since I started my account on this site. I was a sophomore in high school when I joined up, thinking that, since I listened to a lot of music when I was a kid (mostly rock and metal), that I knew everything about music...and boy was I wrong. Turns out Sputnik made me open my eyes to a whole new world of music, not just in different genres, but also within the genres that I was already familiar with. It's because of this website that I was able to find so many of my favorite artists, as well as learning more about writing in general.

Back when I was in high school, I didn't have a whole lot of music to listen to. I jammed a lot of music when I was a kid, due to my older brother introducing me to rock and metal, but by my teenage years, he was in the military, so my source of music was pretty much gone with the exception of a few friends.

I forgot exactly how I found this website, I was probably browsing the web during class at one point. But after lurking around for a bit and finding out you could make your own reviews, I decided to make an account on here. I thought I knew a lot about music so I figured that I could make some good reviews out of it, turns out I was way over my head at the time. I still cringe at my earlier reviews because of how naive I was back then.

A couple years later though, I started to broaden my taste a bit. Sure I was still listening to what I was familiar with, but soon I figured how much I enjoyed other genres other than rock/metal. Before I knew it, I was starting to crank out a bunch of reviews and ratings like clockwork. I'd want to say 2015-2016 was probably my most active years on here.

I will say that recently my review output has been dry. It's not that I'm done with music (I doubt I ever will be), it's more or less just...burnout I guess? I just haven't been motivated to review anything within the past few years, probably due to the fact that I actually have irl things in my way constantly. I do hope to have that drive again someday though, because it was fun. Thanks Sputnik, here's hoping to another 10 years...assuming you'll last that long.
