Where's the new content?

For the long time readers of my blog, you may be wondering what's been going on. I went from posting several times a week on a consistent basis to hearing the sound of crickets! My love and passion for toys still exists, but like a lot of us my personal life has changed to the point my free time is almost non-existent.

The company I've worked for the last 4 years was bought out effective May 1st. I also received a promotion during this time with the new company. Ever since I've been working 60+ hours a week and even traveling some across the state of North Carolina. This obviously means I haven't been sitting in front of a computer for 8+ hours a day like I used to. The time I have for the things I like...well it just isn't there anymore. If I knew how to make one of those Memes it would say something like "I have a job to afford Transformers. I have a job so I can't enjoy my Transformers".

However I'm not ready to shut it down. Even though I don't see things at work slowing down anytime soon, I'm not giving up. I still have some things in the pipeline that I just need to type up. However don't expect to see a lot of new posts or hot new items reviewed for the time being. On top of everything else my wife and I have decided to put our house on the market and look at moving. This of course means the wonderful task of packing up my toys. Before I do that however, I really want to post a new room tour...perhaps the very last room tour in my current home. We'll see how that goes...

Thank you however for all of the readers, comments, the Facebook likes and shares and Google Plus +1s. The blog is still gaining new readers, page hits and likes which to me is amazing since my activity as dropped. However I look at this as motivation to keep moving forward.


  1. Hey bro. You've got a great blog but don't put any unnecessary pressure on yourself to produce content. Sometimes real life gets in the way. Just take things one day at a time.

  2. Congrats on the promotion. Good luck on finding a new home

  3. 60+ hours a week? I guess I have no reason to complain about my busy schedule. Congratulations on your promotion!
