Let's talk about the elephant in the room...

Well, as you've hopefully noticed, I've been conspicuously absent from this blog for a little while now. Life has been busy, there have been other outlets for the hobby content I create, and I've been working on an odd assortment of things - those are all true and convenient excuses for my absence.

I think, however, the main reason I haven't posted any hobby progress here for a while is that I have fallen out of the blogging rhythm. Those of you with blogs will know that there's a certain rhythm to the way you post. Some post after each big hobby session, some post on the completion of a project, some when they have some great ideas to lay out for the world. For me it was a mix of the first two approaches, and I just haven't had too many cool things to show/talk to you all about.

I hope to remedy that in the future, but won't promise too much.


Anyway, if you'd like to see/hear some of the things I have been up to while I haven't been posting here, you can check out the weekly podcast that I'm guest co-hosting - Combat Phase - that typically releases every Thursday/Friday (although we are taking a break this week). You can find the Combat Phase website HERE, and our Facebook page HERE.


I've also joined Rick Ankney on the Game Trade Media Facebook Live show "Painting Happy Li'l Minis" each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon (2-3pm EST). This should be a fun chance to sit down and paint in a different environment and help folks in a different way. You can find the Game Trade Media Facebook page HERE, and the Painting Happy Li'l Minis Facebook group HERE.


Additionally I've written an article series for my mates at Beasts Of War. The first article published last week (HERE) and the second should be due out anytime now. This is the start of something larger I'm working towards for next year. Hopefully I can provide more concrete details in the next month or so : )

And if you'd like to see what I'm working on commission-wise, head to my Instagram account to see some fun WIP photos of the massive Legio Custodes force.

Thanks for your patience, dear blogging world. Speak to you soon.

Cheers
Dave

  1. I think the ol blogs are in there dying days. I'm on Instagram more and more these days and I have FB and may actually start using it at some point. It's just much easier. I'll likely keep my blog but it will be kept for more in depth things like SBS articles that require more detail. That also means less frequent updates on it though... No biggie just the evolution of art/ social media interaction.

  2. Yep...blogs are dead or dying. I still visit a few, but I've noticed a steady decline in the amount of readers over the years. Facebook, instagram, and youtube just do it better...or more conveniently.

    1. I think blogs have their place, Social Media tends to be instant gratification and images and not substance or hobby, fine if you just want pictures but I prefer blogs and have seen a steady increase in readers.

    2. Have to agree with that. People turn to blogs when they want 'meatier' content. I guess your forum depends on what you are producing.

  3. I think it certainly is tougher to be a Blogger these days, but I don’t think the platform is dead yet.
