Reasons to keep writing The Darko Index:
- Follow through – it’s important in shooting a basketball and it’s important in all creative endeavors. The blog has grown and now feels like something I should sustain beyond this year. I have committed myself to writing it through June. After the Finals and the NBA draft, I will post less frequently. Until then, I need to show myself I can finish at the rim.
- Sharing the Passion – the NBA playoffs are my favorite time of the year. If there is ever a time to spread the NBA love and to keep the blog active, it’s the playoffs.
- Predictions – Making predictions and following the results is an addiction of mine. It seems like a relatively safe addiction to indulge, so why not?
Reasons to post less frequently on The Darko Index:
- Studying for the Social Studies CSET on May 4th – passing this test will make me eligible to teach high school history as well English and ESL, which would theoretically give me a better chance to land a full-time high school teaching position in the fall.
- Editing the collection of personal essays, reflections and poems – While I love writing about the NBA and thinking about why playing sports and following sports teams matters in the grand scheme, I have other writing interests that demand some attention.
- Spending more time with the ladybug and our fur creature.
