As many (all?) of you are aware, I quit twitter (in epic fashion, if you ask me) on the @CurseOfBenitez account last week after hitting a simultaneously exciting and depressing milestone. Many people asked why, and I didn’t really have a concise answer for them. The fact of the matter is that as the tweet count would suggest, I was spending a fair amount of time doing that and very little time working on this — something I aim to change looking toward the future.
I can tell you that this website will be undergoing a fair amount of change before next season begins. There will be a renewed emphasis on photoshoppery/GIFs/macros as was the case when I first started this blog; there will be irregular but significant editorial and analysis entries by myself and possibly others; there will be Cobcasts; there will be layout changes, the degree of which I haven’t entirely decided yet.
One of the main reasons I’m shifting away from twitter and towards the site is that I did feel as if my working and waking hours precluded many of the people who would have enjoyed my content from even seeing it without effort, having to go back in their timeline a number of hours to even lay eyes on what I was saying/generating. I think I will end up creating an account to tweet links to content, like I used to on the CoB twitter account, but the complication is that I very much dislike twitter accounts that only shit out links and don’t interact with the reader base.
I can also tell you that I’m really, really close to unveiling a really funny website Lana and I came up with a little while back. The site itself is ready, and I’m just waiting on the first few rounds of content to be finished (without going into any amount of detail, the content involves my writing and doing some things and waiting for a corresponding set of writing to complete the entry). The style will be a bit dickish, a heap offbeat and entirely inconsiderate — I’m sure you’re shocked about this – and has potential for the reader base to get involved as well.
I’m also planning on running an image hosting service through that domain that would be without restriction and available for CoB reader use. I really think the domain is a cool one, and emails could also be made available if anyone fancied one.
ETA on that site is late next week, but could come sooner depending on how things shape up.
ETA on the @gggiants Cobcast is as soon as you tweet him and nag the fuck out of him to get on that shit already. Well, and me too.
ETA on the massive secret project that has [redacted].
You can find me on twitter here, though I don’t/won’t be using it nearly as often and it might be a bit different than what you’re used to. Probably not, though.
