I feel in recent months as if the focus of this blog has become somewhat fractured, and so when I get back from Europe I am going to make some changes.
(1) It was never my intent to have so many posts about foreign sales and other news items, unless it was something pretty cool like actually having Shriek in my hands. The problem has been my learning curve on blogger and lack of time with regard to what I'd really like to do: have a side bar on this blog where I can post news items and links to news. I plan on creating a sidebar by September.
(2) I think a certain amount of personal-public type postings make sense, but I'm not sure it's balanced the way it should be. Some of the stuff about books could as easily go on a formal website that runs columns, reviews, and interviews. So, starting in September, I'm going to start doing a column for SF Site (details yet to be worked out). Several of the things I would have posted to this blog will go there instead.
(3) There can never be enough Evil Monkey.
The result of these changes will be to recapture some of the original flavor of this blog, when I would post more thoughtful pieces and fewer quick info blurts. It will also allow me to have more fun with the blog, I think.
Anyway, that's the plan.
Also, I would love feedback on the Evil Monkey videos. Should Evil continue to speak out every week?
