The content cupboard at wrestlegasm.com has been pretty bare this week. In fact, if you were relying on this website to be your sole form of entertainment, you’ve likely fallen in to the worst depression of your life. The only proper content I managed to get out during the week was a piece working with the hateful boys at LOL Wresslin. They made me an offer I couldn’t refuse, then once we’d worked together, they used it against me to assert their supposed superiority. And I thought that kind of thing only happened to unscrupulous billionaires, not kindly Welsh women. A lesson learned.
Anyway, yes, my content fail. There are three reasons for the lack of posts.
A) Despite hoping for an easier working week after the previous hellish fortnight, respite did not emerge. And being a person of morals, ditching my work responsibilities in favour of blogging just wouldn’t sit right. Stuff that pays the bills (unfortunately) comes first. When I can fix it so that the job that makes me really happy is the same job that pays the bills, I’ll be on to a winner.
B) I’m off on a big American roadtrip on Monday and have being trying to fill my spare time with travel preparations.
C) Humidity! If you’re following me on Twitter (actually, if you’re following any British person on Twitter) you’ll have noticed we had a weather mishap this week. Britain became a nation of zombies. My commuter train resembled a scene from Shaun of the Dead. Soaring temperatures, a thick blanket of cloud and a severe lack of knowledge on how to install air conditioning ANYWHERE combined to reduce productivity across the land.
While I visit the birth-nation of WWE, I’m going to rethink this website. It needs a bit of rejigging. When I paid my cash for this domain name in April, I didn’t think anyone would be interested. More to the point, I thought it would become a chore to me and I’d give it up after a month. Actually, the opposite happened. Every week the hits record goes up way beyond any other project I’ve worked on before, and rather than get bored, I’m getting annoyed that I don’t have the time to put the wealth of ideas and plans I have in to action. I’ll do some of that blue-sky-thinking crap and come back with some new thoughts on how to move ideas in to actual posts.
I will try to keep things ticking over while I’m away. I don’t want to disappear completely. I might do some full posts or I might just do some ‘postcards from the road’. We’ll see. In the meantime, thank you for visiting and I hope you’ll come back soon. Now I’ll sit back and wait for the emails telling me I’m rubbish.
See you in the US, folks!
PS> I had a full recap of The Bash written but so much seems to have happened since, it feels kind of redundant now. So I’m shelving it.
