If you read the title of my post, it should come as no surprise to you that I have not posted in eight days. As Dusty Rhodes might say, “Ah’m at a croth road, eef you weel”. I’ve lost my drive, my passion and my inspiration for keeping this blog ’80s themed. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the ’80s and there’s no other decade I’d rather live in but I can only do so many food, toy, cartoon and commercial posts without getting bored. There’s thousands of blogs just like this out there and we all keep running in circles talking about the same old (literally!) stuff.
I think maybe I got burned out last year doing so many Halloween and Christmas posts. The funny thing is, as I’ve slacked off on posting this year, my views keep rising each month. March 2010 was my second highest month for views. December 2009 is the tops by far though. I had an obscene amount of visits then that I won’t be touching on a regular basis anytime soon.
Besides, I’m having a heckuva time writing for my music blog Metal Excess. That’s really where I’ve been devoting my time. I’ve got big things poppin’ and little things stoppin’ over there. Of course, just as sure as my posting frequency at The Metal Misfit has fallen, I can pick it up again at any moment’s notice and who knows? Tomorrow may kick off a 17 day posting binge so keep me in your thoughts, prayers and Google Readers.
So yeah, if you’ve been looking at any of my other posts that use images, you’ve noticed that I’ve exceeded my bandwidth for Photobucket. I knew this time was coming because the blog keeps growing in views every month. Sucks.
Oh well. Any recommends for image hosting now? I could pay $2.99 per month at Photobucket but I don’t make any money off the site so I’d rather not do that (yes, I’m cheap).
Okay, we’ve got really cold weather here and snow flurries should be arriving any day now. Plus it’s December 1st and that means it’s time to discuss all things Christmas! That holiday already began slowly creeping into the blog back in November, but now we’re in December, so it’s time to really get this fireplace roaring! As Kevin McAllister would say– this is it, don’t get scared now.
It won’t be all-Christmas, all the time here (I certainly have no plans of doing a Halloween Scream equivalent), but be on the look out for plenty of articles and remembrances of toys, commercials and Christmases of the past. I’m also planning on doing some reviews of Christmas specials and movies (Christmas At Home has kicked things off for reviews).
Yeah, I’ve been lazy the past few days. Also been kinda busy with life (though I’ve also been working on some Halloween posts) so, no new post today either because I’m going to see KISS tonight and I just don’t have time to do anything.
I’ll be back in the groove tomorrow though!
I’ve got a couple of cool articles in mind for the blog that should be posting sometime soon. Things are about to get real wordy around here again. I can’t let The Surfing Pizza have all of the fun, now can I? Hopefully, I can have something up this weekend (I’m shooting for tonight, actually), but I have to be honest, my mind keeps drifting towards HALLOWEEN and all of the posts I wanna do in October!
