Retrospace Returns!



Well, it's been at least a year since I was regularly posting to Retrospace.  It was a long hiatus, but I knew I'd get back to it when the time was right.  I've had just too damn much fun here (since 2008!) to wave goodbye for good.  I'm so glad I can now return... the question is, how many of you are still out there?



Why'd I leave in the first place?  Regular readers may recall that, after over 5 years of daily posting, I was starting to get burned out - plus I'd been burned by Google (they pulled my advertising) and Rapidshare.  It was time to take a break.  Plus, I began doing articles for Anorak and Flashbak, which took up any remaining time.  (Note: I'm still submitting to Flashbak, but not as frequently.)

So, what to expect in the days ahead?  There's no way I can post every day as I used to.  Also, super-lengthy posts which involve lots of work are probably going to be few and far between.  But I will be scanning quite a bit ("vintage preservation" is, for whatever reason, rewarding to me). And, yes, there will be Miniskirt Mondays... just not every Monday.  Perhaps most importantly, pancakes will, once again, be on the menu.

I'm so looking forward to returning to the wheel.  Things may be a tad different than before, but Retrospace will still be Retrospace, with yours truly at the helm once again.  It's good to be back - I just hope my loyal readers hear the call:  Retrospacers Assemble!

  27. Glad to have you back!!!!! I am keeping up with you on Flashbak (your posts are awesome as usual, and that site is pretty cool) but somehow I still missed your Retrospace posts!! They felt more...personal, dare I say? Now I'm glad to have you on both sites! Your posts are the best. Best resources, ideas, and execution; so funny! Foxy ladies idea...70's prime time TV babes?

  36. I'm really late on finding this out. In fact, I had quit checking Retrospace and just now accidentally clicked on it from my favorites thinking I was clicking Flashbak (you were pretty much the only contributor I read on there, so I never did distinguish the two in my head). You're going back in the rotation and it looks like I have a lot of catching up to do!
