Kawaiian Punch is back, has not yet reached its final form


After nearly two weeks away from the site, I'm happy to announce that I survived E3 and - as promised - I've returned to announce a major change to Kawaiian Punch.

The long and short of it is that I've accepted a new position in the gaming industry that has me doing legitimate work - like, in an office and everything!  This is a marked change from the blessed freelancer status I've been "enjoying" for the past three-and-a-half years, and it also means that I'm, fortunately, going to have less time to write here.

What's that, you say - shouldn't that be unfortunately?

Nope.  Because now I'll have to focus on quality over quantity.

At some point in the past, it became readily apparent that my usual long-form posts would be unsustainable on a daily basis, and the site slowly turned into another geek news aggregator where I put a new spin on any 'ol story that caught my eye simply because I felt guilty leaving the site fallow for a day or two.

Now that I'm forced to step away from daily updates due to z0mgDREAMJOB commitments, I can finally turn the good ship Kawaiian Punch around.

There will be some changes, of course.

For starters, I'll be switching away from daily updates to much more sane biweekly (twice a week) updates - one on Monday, which will generally be longer in form, and the other on Thursday which'll be your garden variety Object of Geek Desire installment.

The end result of all of this will be a fresh, new Kawaiian Punch that'll offer content, views, opinions, and - hell - maybe even exclusive interviews on a more laid-back schedule.

I'll still pop in to post the occasional lulz pic on the KP Facebook page just to let you know that I'm still alive and well and... well, that's about it for site news.  Look forward to the first KP 2.0 post on Monday!
