Yep, it’s just a blog post folks
Yes, it’s come to this. I had a feeling it would happen sooner or later, but I figured it would end up happening later. First off, I have to mention that I still enjoy every part of this site and I’m not giving it up by a long shot. But I do have to say that I’m kind of down about it for various reasons and will be slowing down for a little bit. Instead of posting every day, I’ll be posting about every other day or so.
There are quite a few reasons why I’m feeling kind of down in regards to this site. I’m a bit of a stats junkie and I’ve noticed that readership is down by quite a bit the past several weeks, by nearly half. I know that this is a niche site and will never get the amount of views as a more traditional movie blog that covers either new releases, and/or anything and everything movies would, but when things have been growing for months, it’s not fun to see a big drop. It’s also been tougher reaching out to fan filmmakers and not getting responses back, it also doesn’t help that I didn’t get the link bump from Thomas Jane. I still think he’s an awesome guy, so I can’t knock him too much, but he said he’d drop the link on his end and that never happened. And on top of everything else, there’s the inevitable burnout that I feel I’m heading towards. I’m one person trying to handle: 3 movie reviews, 3 interviews, 1 blog post, 7 Facebook poster games (even if most are just Googled), and 1 cut-up poster game every week and a podcast every other week. I still enjoy all of it, especially the new podcast, but I’m finally realizing it’s too much to handle and consistently enjoy it. I’ll still be doing at least two movie reviews a week, but both Follow Friday and Superhero Shorts will be taking a week off. I may finally change up my weekly schedule to a bi-weekly schedule, or possibly a 5-day schedule. I’ll figure it out. Until next time (which will be Friday), this has been Bubbawheat for Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights.
