WHAAAT?! It’s March 14th again? Already?! How did THAT happen?
As long-time visitors may know, March 14th is www.HowToWinGameShows.com’s birthday.
And it’s now been a whopping 10 YEARS since I hesitantly wrote those first words “Well, here goes!” and nervously clicked “Publish”. I could bang on about all the content I’ve posted here since 2013, but that’s all stuff that you can easily find if you’re interested. Instead, I just wanted to look back on the last 10% of that time…
It’s been a pretty busy 365 days around here, but I must confess, not a lot of that time has been spent on this blog.
You see, there have been other significant demands on my time over the last 52 weeks. These included
– Acting in two seasons of Mad As Hell,
– Writing the 2022 TV Week Logie Awards,
– Finishing and releasing my third book 50Things To Be Seriously Grateful For Today* *and 50 not-so-serious things to illustrate them.
– Recording the audiobook version of my novel Symphony Under Siege in December,
– and, with my friend Bill, launching a new podcast called The Funny Thing Is…
Added to family commitments, these things have had an unfortunate tendency to nudge HowToWinGameShows.com further down my list of priorities. And I’m truly sorry for that. I’m going to double my efforts to get some great content up for you here in the months ahead. I’m pleased to say that I’ll have some more Patented HowToWinGameShowsBehindTheScenesReminiscences, and we do also have some more guest posts in the pipeline…
That’s all in addition to – and to one side of – the most pressing demand on my time at the moment, work-wise… my new one-man show for this year‘s Melbourne International Comedy Festival. It’s called Letters From My Heroes. And it opens in just 17 days’ time!
Anyway, putting that to one side, I just wanted to thank you for your patience, for your tolerance, and for your interest over this past decade. I’ll continue to keep posting game show-related tidbits, stories, interviews, reviews and behind-the-scenes reminiscences here whenever I can, for as long as I can.
Because I believe now – as I believed ten years ago – that if anyone gets even the slightest bit of value, entertainment or assistance out of it, then it’s all worthwhile.
Again, thank you, as always.
