Well, 2011 is over already, and all in all I have to say it wasn't much better than 2010, other than I didn't get laid off this year, which was nice. Work still sucks, but I had a job for the entirety of 2011 which I can't say was the case in 2010. I had something to post almost every day this year, which I had no intentions of doing when the year began, but after I noticed I had a bit of a streak going I decided to keep it up and see just how many posts I ended up with at the end of the year. For those keeping score, I ended up with 355 posts, so just 10 shy of every single day. Not bad, or absolutely ridiculous, depending on how you feel about a person having so little of a life that he's able to blog every single day in a year.
However, blogger was pretty good to me last year, with my incessant posting, and a bit of a shift in tone with Tales From the Batcave becoming more about horror and movies, and less about comics in general, I met a lot of great new people and added a ton of followers. From the bottom of my twisted, black, emotionless heart, I sincerely thank you all for reading my little unimportant corner of the interwebs. I thank those of you who take the time to comment, follow, link, and even care enough to drop me a line through email or other such method of communication. If not for you, I probably would've stopped doing this a long time ago, or at the very least gotten drunk and deleted this blog the way I did the original Tales From the Batcave, which I regret doing to this day.
As I look forward to 2012, I will likely not be going for any kind of blogger record with posts, nor will I even attempt to match this past year's output. My current plan is to cut back on posting a bit, post less filler so to speak, and to focus more on actually writing. That means I will likely only update when I actually have something to say, however unimportant or irrelevant it may be. Of course I will still throw up the random screen grabs, comic book panels taken completely out of context, and Friday Night Drive-In movies, because they're fun to do and I enjoy them even if nobody else does. But everything is going to be more streamlined, or that's the plan at least.
I urge everyone who's still into the blogging thing to keep at it, I enjoy reading blogs even more than I enjoy writing this one. My blogroll is filled with some extremely entertaining blogs done by very talented people, yet some of them haven't been updated in weeks, or worse, months.
