Hi there everyone.
So…this is hard to write.
But, I’m going to be taking an extended break from the website starting today. It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, and all of the terrible things going on in the world has really pushed me towards this decision. I’m just feeling very burnt out. Physically, emotionally, and intellectually, and I just need some time to try and get my head straight.
I’ve been working on this site since 2015, and over that time we’ve talked about every episode of the Simpsons, hundreds of movies, both classic and contemporary, hundreds of issues of Detective Comics, and hundreds of crazy Marvel stories. And, I’ve loved it. I started this website because I wanted to work on my critical writing, while also proving to myself I could commit to a project like this. But, lately my heart just hasn’t been in it. And, I would rather take an extended break than let the quality of the site diminish. It’s a silly thing, writing about pop culture at a time like this, but I’ve been proud of this dumb little website, and I really hope that I’ll be back sometime.
I don’t know when, but I do want to bring the site back. I don’t know what form that will take, if I’ll still be doing things like Bat Signal and the Bucket List, or if I’ll completely change things around. But, I’ve had a really great time sharing my pop culture musings on this site, so I can’t imagine I’ll be gone forever. And, who knows, maybe in the ensuing months I’ll get inspired to do some writing, and I’ll post it to the site, but I don’t think it’s going to updated regularly for quite some time.
I want to thank any readers I have out there for coming and checking out my thoughts. All I really wanted from this site was to potentially brighten people’s day, make you think about story in a way you hadn’t before, and maybe make you laugh. I hope I’ve introduced people to fun stories that they wouldn’t have otherwise checked out, and if I’ve accomplished that even once than it was worth it.
So, farewell for now. I hope we all meet again someday.
Sorry to hear it, but doing consistent content for five years as one person is pretty impressive – good luck on what comes next.
I’ve enjoyed your posts. Taking a break can be good. I will watch for when your site returns.
