A shift in the schedule

Hello everybody!

As of this May (2021), the Monster Meet blog will officially be 6 years old. 6 years! In that time, we’ve covered 81 monsters in 6 continents, and I’ve enjoyed every one of them. It’s my hope that you have, as well.

Because I like doing this blog and bringing to you all the wonderful variety of horrors that the human imagination has to offer, I’m going to keep doing it. However, recent Life Stuff™ has made me realize that I need to be taking more care in how I delegate my time and energy. I love reporting on monsters, but more, I love creating them, and love fashioning long-form experiences where readers like you can get to know them intimately.

To create those experiences, especially around the increasing demands of my day job, I need more uninterrupted stretches of time. So, at least for now, I’m going to slow Monster Meet down from posts every full moon to posts on the equinoxes and solstices (for some reason, I just can’t bring myself to do something reasonable like the first Monday of the quarter).

For those following along at home, that means that the dates for the remainder of this year will be as follows:

  • Summer Solstice: June 20, 2021
  • Autumnal Equinox: September 22, 2021
  • Winter Solstice: December 21, 2021

I’ll evaluate at the end of the year and see where we’re at, and let you guys know what you can expect from there on out.

Thank you as always for sharing my love of weird, sometimes frightening, sometimes hilarious darkness. I’ll see y’all in a couple of months.

This is what came up when I searched “solstice.” I dig it. Thank you to Zoltan Tasi on Unsplash.
