My Eight Days a Week-Long Sabbatical From the Blogging World & Some Fun (?) New Things Coming Soon to the Ole Blog

They, whomever they are, say that blogging is over. They, yeah, they again, say that blogging is no longer relevant. Thanks to social media, from Facebook to Twitter to Instagram to GrizzleFeed, and everything in between, many claim that blogging is going the way of the Brontosaurus. Well, I'm here to say bah! Blogging is as relevant as ever. And on that note, I humbly take a week off from said blogging. Yup, that's right. It's only a short little sabbatical, just 8 days long (I'll be back on Wednesday next week with the start of a brand new series - see below), but I will be away from the ole blog for a period of time. heck, we're even skipping this week's Heavenly Body of the Week. Yeah, even the heavenly bodies need a break now and again. But not to worry, they will be back next week, and speaking of things coming soon...

So, along with the continuing Heavenly Body of the week segment, other faves will still be going on here at All Things Kevyn - once I return. My film and TV reviews will continue, and there will be new editions of The Great Albums series (I've been slacking on those of late) and of course, everyone's favourite (for some silly reason), People Who Need To Be Punched in the Face. Couldn't go on without that one. Also, my Alphabet Game will continue monthly. And not to worry true believers, more top ten lists will also be coming your way. This Spring will also see the return of The 11 Question Interview, with lots of great new celebrities galore! For my local readers, I will also be doing a local version (with local celebs) of The 11 Question Interview, which will be seen at a local blog called Today's the Day Harrisburg. More on that when the time comes. I will also be bringing back my Great Recasting series (at least one or two) later in the year, and more Classic Cinema Corners will also be coming your way. There might even be some more comic book reviews for Comic Spectrum and some new top tens for the GLA. You can check out all these regular series (and irregular ones too) on my Index page, found conveniently through the link in the tabs section at the top of this blog. But what about that new stuff I spoke of in the post's title? Good question.

A new regular series I am excited about is a thing I like to call, Worst to Best. Basically, it is an offshoot of my regular top ten lists. Yeah, I like lists, what of it!? Anyhoo, this series actually got its start a few weeks back, when I did my exhaustive (and exhausting!) list of every single SNL cast member, all 143 of 'em, listed from worst to best. So, I had fun with that one, and have decided to make a regular gig out of it. And don't worry, the ones I have planned are not going to be quite as exhausting. The first one of these will be on The Beatles. I will be taking the band's 13 official studio albums, and ranking them from worst to best. Yeah, I don't actually dislike any of these 13 albums, but someone has to come in last place. And yes, the connection between this first segment of the series and a certain few words from the post's title, are not coincidental. I also have some plans to do ones on Stanley Kubrick films and Oscar winning Best Pictures. There might even be some new La-La & Lu-Lu's. Hey, and my Comic Stripping series (of which there has only been one so far) will also be coming back soon. And don't forget to keep up in April as I will be taking a second stab at the annual Blogging From A to Z April Challenge, wherin I blog every day but Sundays, and do it alphabetically. So there!

Anyhoo, that is all I have to say on that. In other words: that's it gang. See ya 'round the web. And try to enjoy your 8 days without me. Of course, I will surely still be all over Facebook and Twitter and what have you. Can't get rid of me that easily. I'll also be working on my book over this sabbatical. Still hopin' to have that up and ready for publication by year's end. Live Long & Prosper. (#LLAP)


  1. You are busy and will look forward to your lists especially the worst to best. It was my first time on the A to Z last year too. Have a good week

    1. Thanx. I will be back soon...and with my first Worst to Best edition.

  2. And on the ninth day he stopped resting, got off his lazy ass, and wrote something! Love ya!

  3. I've just downloaded iStripper, and now I can watch the best virtual strippers dancing on my desktop.
