You could well have guessed it, though. In my constant struggle with “Is it worth it?” and how to bring something even just a little unique to the bloated blogosphere, I opted to take a month off and not sweat it, giving myself time to find focus.
Firstly, Spare Change will resume, but I’m going to move it to a thrice-a-week event: Mondays, Wednesdays (excluding today) and Fridays. That’ll give me enough time that I should be able to come up with something decent. That’s what I’m hoping, anyways. Regardless, for those awaiting its return — I’m looking at you, Dee — fear no longer.
I’m also going to introduce a weekly round-up of stuff that’s caught my eye as I peruse the interwebs. Saving myself premature balding over trying to find a clever name, it’s simply called Week In Review. I plan to have these out on Saturdays for those wanting something to eat a little spare time over the course of the weekend.
Lastly, since I can’t seem to figure out a better use of all the stuff, I’m introducing another section to the blog: The Sketchbook. This isn’t just dedicated to what everyone would expect: scans from sketchbook pages. It’s also going to feature unexplored ideas, executed ideas that were abandoned for one reason or another; pretty much anything that hasn’t seen the light of day before. Who knows, maybe there’s some gold in there I refuse to see.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “But Colin, you’ve said things before and haven’t exactly delivered.” And yeah, that’s true. But in the past month I’ve found a renewed sense of energy and focus, and with a little determination and discipline these goals are easily achievable — we’re not talking about climbing Everest, exactly. So, expect what I suppose you could call unprecedented activity on the blog, here.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, Canada is about to (hopefully) put a hurt on Russia’s hockey club. I’ve got to feed my inner Canadian and drink beer and watch hockey. Go Canada, eh!
