This post is long overdue. I’ve been putting it off for far too long. After delaying the inevitable, its time I say goodbye to this blog.
I’m getting a bit a head of myself. I’ll start at what has happened since the last post. I put this blog in hiatus back in September of last year. I was in the middle of returning to college and didn’t have enough time to work in this, study, and write for Monkeys Fighting Robots. I decided to put this blog on hold until I had time to catch back up on it. Unfortunately things started happening all at once. After I was done with college in December I had to start studying for my certification test and get my Occupational Therapy Assistant License. Afterward, I found myself in a move. Then as I was job hunting, I finally had my book be released.
Yes, I wrote a book. The Handbook for Surviving A Giant Monster Attack is available on Amazon from Severed Press. The book is the reason why I started this blog in the first place. I wanted to show my knowledge as a fan of giant monsters. It did help me to connect with Derek Koch of Monster Kid Radio who helped direct me towards Severed Press. I’m eternally grateful for his help.
Still, with the book out and me constantly writing for Monkeys Fighting Robots, while still doing a day job, a line has to be drawn somewhere. Unfortunately this means I have to finally say goodbye to this blog. Know this isn’t my goodbye to the Kaiju community as its more than obvious Giant Monsters will always be a part of my life. Instead, its saying goodbye to a project I’ve which has been a part of my life for over three years. Still, there comes a time when you have to direct your energy towards more important projects.
I know this blog didn’t get nearly as much traffic as I do over at Monkeys Fighting Robots and I never did get as much interaction as I hoped I would. Still, I had a lot of fun doing it. In closing I would like to leave you with the 5 Ultra Vows. Some of which are valuable even today:
1. Never going to school on an empty stomach (good advice)
2. Be careful of cars when walking down the street (also good advice)
3. Hang your futon on a sunny day (If you have a futon this is pretty good advice)
4. Do not depend on people (I’m pretty sure this one means in an ALL the time sense)
5. Play run around and play barefoot on the ground (be honest, we all need to do this a bit more)
I will probably post on this blog again when I do Podcasts or plan to attend conventions. Speaking of which I’ll be at Midwest Media Expo on April 28th-30th. I have my usual Godzilla panel scheduled. Overall though this is the last post of substance I’ll make on this blog for the foreseeable future. If you want more of my writing, then please buy my book. For everything else…”So long and thanks for all the fish.”
