Ask-Ardeth : Jan 15th 2011

This was a comment on one of my posts, and I thought I would answer it by turning it into an Ask-Ardeth because, well when I started to answer as a comment, it was turning too long to be just a reply.  And I haven't gotten any Ask-Ardeth questions in months. The column was very thin.

Time to dig into the fang mail for another batch of emails from beyond the grave.
Welcome to an overdue issue of "Ask Ardeth" Where anything that can be thought of to ask will be answered by my horror film Heavy Metal Goddess alter ego Ardeth Blood.

Dear Ardeth:

Are you going to be doing any more TNA reviews because now the Hardy Boyz are back together.

From: RocktheSock 

Dear RocktheSock:

 At some point yes, I will be.  But at the moment, I do not have the kind of energy and time to put into doing the reviews/commentaries the way I was.
I have been focusing on the book reviews for the last few months.
I have been doing free-form oners on my wrestling blog as well as WWE's NXT simply because they are short.  I found spending the time covering four episodes or more of wrestling per week; was coming to close to 20 hours per week.  Just too much energy to put into something that was no longer fun for me.
At some point I do want to take my reviews/commentaries to the next level, but that time is just not now. I have stated my distaste for how TNA has moved in the last 8 months and until the storylines go in a direction I can say are better, I'm just going to keep it simple. 
As far as the Hardy Boyz getting back together,  I'm not a fan of theirs, never have been.
I know 90% of my Spudguns are wrestling fans, and I also know that since I have cut back on my wrestling posts, I've lost nearly 60% of my readers.  A year ago that would have sent me in a tailspin panic, now I'm just cruising. 
When you put that kind of time into something, even if it is just a hobby, you become emotionally attached.  I want to love what I'm doing 100% of the time, not just 40%.
So for now, I'm keeping it simple, maybe the odd "my favourites match" and the free-form oners I'm doing on my other blog, but until I can truly say I am in love with wrestling again... I'm just watching the parts with Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin.

 That's all the time we have for this one, come back around and see what other gobs of wisdom Ardeth Blood will dish out and serve to her fiends.
