A long time...maybe the last time.

I don't know, really. It does really feel like I've run out of things to say, at least in this particular format. And I'm not sure why that is. Perhaps it's because when I first started this blog, I was an editor at Entertainment Weekly, one who spent most if not all of his time disconnected from the internet as a content creator. This was before Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. This was my outlet for opinions I couldn't express in a mass media publication as well as work blogs when I started writing comics on a regular basis.

And then I started writing for EW's in-house blog and got to get some of the rambly off my chest. When I left EW and became a full-time blogger, my life was all about getting paid for stuff I used to write here for free, so I shook my moneymaker where the money was good.

I've spent the better part of the last two years doing that and I think I might've pulled up whatever oil was down there to begin with. Combine that with relatively robust presences on the social-media trifecta I mentioned up top — yeah, I think I might be done. Maybe I'm wrong, and I'll return to this particular format, ready to dig my teeth in and tear a new path.

But I don't think so.

My work leads me to write longer and longer — in comics, novels, and now television — so my play becomes shorter and shorter. Such is the way of things, I suppose.

I may pop in here, every now and again, but I wouldn't count on it. Thanks for stopping by, those of you who still did. If you're looking for more of me, hit me up on Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr. I still sling bullshit there on a regular basis.

Take care.
