Brief MMA Update | January 19th, 2019

As a result of some delays in making changes to the MMA / combat sports articles and archive sections, Fight Notes will remain in its current form for the next little while. I'm still working on the new format; until I settle on something, I'll contine to post the same commentary / recap style of article. I expect no more than 2-3 weeks before I get these changes committed.

State Of The Shack 2019 | January 3rd, 2019

As is always the case, the holidays snuck up on me, felt almost too brief, and are already shrinking in the rear-view mirror. Hopefully everyone reading this had a good final week of 2018, and kicked the new year off on a positive note. The update schedule for The Shack and The Blog will be back to normal by the beginning of next week, and I have a few notes regarding what content to expect this year.

I'm going to be continuing MMA coverage, although I'm changing the format for Fight Notes and possibly re-titling the existing editions. I spent so long writing UFC event recaps, it's practically a compulsive habit at this point. Now, I still intend to do that sort of thing, but I'm going to post them at a much slower pace and have plans for reviewing a lot of older events. I'm looking at writing shorter, pithier notes on fights rather than just describing what happened. The exact changes haven't been finalised, but it will be sorted by January 19th.

TV show, movie and book reviews are coming. I am also going to be writing articles about more than just MMA. The site turns 20 this year, so there's going to be some retrospective content about ye olde Internet. You can also expect some tweaks to the site layout by mid-year.
