Results of Poll 16: Tabletop Role-playing Games
Doctor Who - Finished!

Emerging from Torpor

Greetings and salutations!

Having been away from the blog for a while has given me a chance to reconsider how I engage with it (and, by extension, with the players of this blog). I don't have all the answers yet, I'm still feeling my way, but here is the potted version of my plans for the time being:

  • Tuesdays will remain the Focus essays, but this will be the only regular scheduled part of the blog for the time being.
  • When there is a Serial, it will run on Thursdays as before. I'll either switch between Focus and Serial, or I'll run the Focus essays in parallel with the serial - this won't get resolved until after Gregorian New Year, since I'm not writing another serial until 2010.
  • I'm dropping the requirement for me to post on games at least once a week. I think this was giving me difficulties as I just don't have something to say on games every week at this point in my life. From now on, posts on games will arrive when I have something I want to write about (taking a leaf from Danc's playbook...)
  • I'm going to try and get back to the more freeform style of blogging I was exploring in the early days of the blog, albeit with less time in my life to do so. To this end, I will be trying to post Shorts (500 words or less) "at will" during the week.
  • I'm suspending the polls for the time being. They may return, I just need a break from them right now.
  • I still like the Minigames, but trying to run them monthly was too much to handle. I'll aim to run these quarterly instead, but I won't worry if I don't have time.

That's about where I'm up to for now. I'm hoping to freestyle through December, although I have a few topics for discussion I'd like to table as soon as I have time to write up my thoughts.

See you in the comments!

This is very good news, that you have realised that all the rules you created around your blogging were self-inflicted and you could cast them aside at will.

Glad you're back - in whatever form :)


Great to hear Chris. I'm looking forward to your new format.
