So, just a bit of site news here. I’ve been working lately behind the scenes on a bit of a relaunch of the site.
Ok, I know, I’ve done this before, repeatedly, many times, especially recently. But I’m extra serious about it this time. Serious enough that I’ve gone through the work of making up a spreadsheet and a schedule to keep things on track. Serious enough that I have a set posting schedule every day of the week for reviews of some kind each day. Serious enough that I’ve been working on building a runway out of content, to help ensure that I can keep up, at least somewhat with this schedule.
I say keep up with this schedule because I already have accepted that at some point I may not be able to keep up with Weekly posts in every category. However that’s part of the point of the runway, so I can have time to catch up as I have time to do so. My intention is to be able to push back things as needed for new content. For example, say I have pre written and scheduled Transformers reviews out through May, but then new figures for The Last Night start dropping in March. I can do up reviews for the new toys while they are more relevant, while pushing back the older less relevant content.
A quick rundown of what the schedule looks like at this point.
- Monday – Marvel Legends come in on Monday. Originally I had planned to do a Marvel Legends review and a Marvel movie review each Monday but to be quite honest, writing out movie reviews has been the most complicated part of all of this, and I just flat out can’t keep up with doing two each week. I might change this, but at this point, I’m not.
- Tuesday – You may have already seen the new Tuesday Trailer Talk posts. I’ve thought about doing a blog for ages just discussing trailers, instead I’m just tossing them in here. Nothing too detailed, just some commentary on an upcoming movie based on it’s trailer. Tuesday is also Video Game review day. This will be somewhat of a mix between new and old content. Video Games reviews take the biggest commitment of anything I do on the site for one reason, I don’t like to review a game until I’ve played a significant portion of it, preferably, until I’ve finished it. How the hell can you review a game based on 5 hours of play time to crank a review out on the release date? This has always been a pet peeve of mine.
- Wednesday – I plan to continue doing Weekly Wednesday Haul when applicable. Wenesday is also for reviews of “Other Figures”. The first run line up is mostly import figures but I plan to start mixing in other lines as well, Star Wars Black Series, and whatnot.
- Thursday – Thursday is for Transformers reviews. Both new and old Transformers. Of all of the content here, I could post a Transformers review every day for like 4 years and not run out of posts, so weekly should be easy. I may eventually add a second day for Transformers reviews.
- Friday – Friday is for films, movies, TV shows possibly. Basically movie reviews go on Fridays.
As of now, I don’t have anything for the weekends, though I may start doing some sort of general commentary and a “What I played” post each week. I’m trying to get the core in alignment first. I also plan to continue with the Agents of SHIELD posts as well as add some other TV recap posts sprinkled throughout. Once the logistics are a bit more set I want to look into doing more newsy posts, good deals online for toys and games, general news, etc.
Overall I’m feeling pretty good about things and I hope to get out of my dumpy funk from the past few years.
