New Year: New Focus

Work starts today! A Quick update about the state of the blog and projects.

New Year: New Focus

Alright, so it's been a few weeks since I posted Welcome to 2024! and I've been hard at work not working on anything at all. I spent a good portion of 2023 slowly realizing I'd become fairly burned out in a lot of areas. I wasn't able to really get in a lot of creative work during my day job, and that sucked the motivation out of working on side creative projects. Keeping content flowing on the blog became my primary concern, so a lot of the passion game projects I'd been working on fell to the side of the proverbial dirt road and languished there.

So, as I said in the prior post - I'll be working on gaming things throughout 2024 and see how that goes. In the next several weeks, there will be new social accounts, more blog posts, game updates and more!

New Post Category: Game Dev Updates

To keep you all up-to-date with how some of the game development work is going, I've created a new category of posts - Game Dev Updates. This category will be the Members Only post structure, replacing the Ten Candles Settings (which have all been made public, hooray!) as the weekly category. Like before, that will cost you nothing but an email address to sign up for, and I will not spam your email address. Historically, I've sent out 2 emails to the membership list aside from transactional emails like "here's your magic sign-in link".

That said, I'm curious if you all would like to see more posts that take the place of a newsletter to your inbox? My primary assumption was that folks would interact with the RSS Feed, but that might be a bit of a leap given that RSS hasn't ever been wildly popular. Which is a shame, because it's amazing and lets you engage with content on your time rather than getting a "ding" for attention every time. Anyhow, I digress. I've put together a small survey! If you'd like to see a newsletter (or not) please let me know:
