So, you’ve all noticed it. I’ve not wanted to say anything about it because it’s been a series of discussions back and forth between myself and the honorable Steel Druhm about the future of this here blog thingy. While I’m not going to get into the details of what’s going on, I just need to say a few words about the site and the future.
First, both Steel Druhm and myself (but note that I am mainly speaking for myself, as Mr. Steel Druhm has his own life and priorities) have been deeply disappointed by the decline in frequency with which we can pump out excellent material. Part of this is due to time: I currently am working on a masters degree and I have become very busy in the run up to writing my thesis in the spring semester of this year. On top of that, I experienced some serious burnout while maintaining this blog as a nearly full time “extra” job and taking an overload of courses and then summer courses.
Recently, I developed a medical condition that makes it very difficult for me to sit in front of the computer and do the work that I need to do, which has stopped the revival of the blog because I am unable to even really edit for other people. And to maintain the quality of writing we want to have here at AMG, we need to make sure that the writing is good. Great, even. So it becomes a difficult thing to do. Still, I’ve found some people who have good writing and we’re going to give it a try.
There will be some announcements about this whole thing coming up in the future. I can’t say when for sure, but let me say that I’m fighting through the pain as best I can to put up stuff and hopefully Steel Druhm will also have a renewed burst of time and energy coming up. And if this doesn’t work out now? There are contingency plans. There are always contingency plans.
So Angry Metal Guy might be kind of semi-crippled at this point and otherwise busy, but we’re doing our best to make sure that we can get back up to speed. We started out 2011 with amazing speed and huge growth. We want to regain some of that consistency and retain our new fans and old.
Thanks for reading and thanks for caring.
