Starting this week, I’m cutting back updates to just three times a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I will continue to do Vintage Vault on Monday and Friday, for the next two weeks, at which time the planned number of Monday M.A.S.K. editions will have wrapped up and I will just be doing VV on Fridays. There will still be about three weeks’ worth of AD&D installments and after that it will rotate to different toy lines.
The cutbacks aren’t because I’ve lost any passion for doing this nonsense, but because I just don’t have that steady inrush of figures and toys to look at. If it weren’t for pulling out my really old stuff for the Vintage Vault featues, I would have had to resort to this a long time ago. Toss in the fact that I’m now doing the jobs of two managers at my work, the daily updates are too much right now. Maintaining a daily update schedule takes a lot of work, but without new stuff to look at, and having to dig through storage to find stuff to look at, it just becomes too time consuming for me to keep up with.
Eventually, I’ll be back to more frequent updates. The dry spell can’t last forever, and we have some really cool stuff coming out in 3rd and 4th Quarter of 2012. But for the time being, I think cutting back is the best thing I can do to maintain some consistancy for FigureFan and my own sanity. I’m not sure that I’ll ever get back to a daily routine, but Monday through Friday is a happy medium that I’d like to shoot for.
As always, thanks for reading, and I’ll be back tomorrow…
