Running a website these days is insane. With a bulging inbox, a team of contributors to manage and 24 hours in a day you might think that it’s actually quite simple; not so. Some days there is a lot of news, while on others, there isn’t so much, and this can wreak havoc on our content levels.
Over the past few years we’ve been enjoying increasingly high reader numbers, but it’s all been a bit of a rush. Very often running Kasterborous is very fulfilling, such as when we record the podKast. Just as often, however, it seems a little empty and vapid. Over the past few years we’ve found ourselves dealing with more and more news, sometimes to the detriment of giving you something decent to read.
With 50 years of madmen in boxes to talk about, this really shouldn’t happen.
So, we’ve come to a decision: we’re pulling back on the news content. We’ll still be bringing you regular daily updates, but they will largely be in summary form, single posts accompanied by more varied content elsewhere on Kasterborous.
When we founded the site in 2005, the aim was to give our readers something interesting to read. We’ve been producing feature-style articles in Kasterborous Magazine: now it’s time to produce them for Kasterborous.com!
Over the coming days, you’ll see a reduction in single news items as we prepare to refocus the site. We’re really excited about this, so look out for some great new articles.
