The hiatus lasted quite a bit longer than I anticipated but after six months Television Obscurities is back. I’m feeling reinvigorated and I’ve spent a little bit of time over the past few weeks tinkering with a few things. Like the new front page, for example. And you’ll notice that there is now a new tab at the top of the page for the blog.
I’ve never been comfortable with the idea of Television Obscurities as a blog. When I switched to WordPress in November 2008, I never intended to be posting on a daily basis. And trying to do so didn’t work out too well. So, Television Obscurities is back to what I’ve always wanted it to be: a website focusing on articles and exhibits that also happens to have a blog. Moving forward, my emphasis will be on updating existing articles and researching/writing new ones. Blog posts may be few and far between, perhaps once a week at best, perhaps less. I really can’t say. I do have a few ideas I’ve been kicking around since before the hiatus for new articles as well as several new ones. I’d also like to revisit some of the exhibits.
Ironically, now that I’m actually interested in writing about obscure television again, I find myself with little free time to devote to the site. But I’ll try to spend at least a few hours each week if I can.
I’d like to thank everyone who continued to visit the site while it was on hiatus. According to my site statistics, Television Obscurities did quite well without any updates, at least until I inadvertently shut the entire site down for two or three days in late May/early June while doing routine maintenance. After that, visits noticeably dropped off. We’ll see if I can turn things around this month. I do plan to try to reply to all the e-mails I was sent over the past six months but it will probably take a week or two.
