Without making a big deal out of what is not at all a big deal, I should inform you that I will no longer be writing recaps of America's Next Top Model on this blog. I no longer have the time and, frankly, the interest. Once upon a time, spending 10+ hours on a recap of this show was an accurate reflection of my love for it. But like everyone else, my interest in it has waned over the years. Right now, with what I have going on, I have time to either only cover ANTM or only cover (some of) the other pop cultural stuff I'm into at any given moment. To go the former route would turn this blog into a complete distortion of my interests, and that is so not the point.
If there is little incentive from within, there's probably even less from without (I at least feel an odd sense of guilt about all this!) -- over the cycles, traffic on the recaps has declined. When I started, I could take a few days to put together a recap and it was no big deal -- things move so fast on the Internet now that by the time Monday rolls around, a million other people have written about it and nobody cares anymore. And also maybe I've gotten worse. I don't know. Basically, killing weekends on virtually thankless posts isn't really something I'd be into doing even if I had the time.
Maybe I'll tweet about the show, but stuff that's taking up my time tends to fall on Wednesdays, anyway. So probably not. I'll never say never (but I will say, "Nevermore," apparently), so maybe I'll notice a trend on the show and write something about it mid-season. But probably not that either. Oh well. It was bound to happen. I'm 32, you know? I will continue to update this blog as actively as possible with things that catch my interest, but as far as ANTM is concerned, I'm the opposite of these people:
