After doing some thinking about priorities, time available and generally what I want to be spending my time on I’ve decided to, for all intents and purposes, mothball and shut down Movie Marketing Madness. Sometime in March moviemarketingmadness.com will simply cease to be (a stark reminder of how transient web content truly is) and I will more or less be closing the book on writing material that would have been published there.
The material I’ve published over the course of the almost eight year existence of MMM will be archived here at CT.WP for posterity’s sake. This is both because I didn’t want to let it completely disappear and because it nicely achieves the goal of consolidating more of what I’ve written online into one handy place, something that appeals to my organizational tendencies.
Over the course of the last few months my schedule has been simply too busy to keep up with MMM as I thought I wanted to. Between the every day responsibilities of a job that I absolutely love, the fact that I was unwilling to sacrifice time on the weekends that would otherwise be spent with my family to write for it, a busy travel schedule that took big chunks of time out and more, MMM was getting back-burnered more often than not. And I slowly came to realize that not only was trying to publish there starting to feel very much like a job but that it wasn’t even that fun of a job anymore. So I’ve made the decision to essentially kill it as an ongoing effort.
That means this site will, combined with Voce Nation, become my main online writing outlet. So look for more here and there as I take the opportunity to reboot the system and make some changes to how things go down in the new year.
