As Steven Universe Future premieres this night in america, there’s never been a much better time to clarify my future plans and my involvement in the sketch neighborhood. The good news is that I’m unlikely anyplace, I am still active but I were refocusing my efforts. My strengths are my Twitter account and my YouTube channel, which I find to be a more efficient and more valuable method to reach more people and to share news in a less time consuming manner. Due to the changes at WarnerMedia and not being concerned to do the blog anymore, I have extended my range of stories, I’m now covering not just Cartoon Network and Boomerang, but additionally Adult Swim, Warner Bros.
Animation and DC Comics more, as well as Toonami USA, Rooster Teeth and Crunchyroll for the primary time. I still post Cartoon Network’s highlights on my Twitter and YouTube accounts. After making the difficult resolution of ultimate the blog, I’ve found that it made very little difference to people who read my content material, actually, I have attracted more fans than ever before. I wasn’t much of a writer, all I did was paraphrase articles I found and give a link to the source with very little input from me for every article, I determined to leave the inside track writing to the experts, there have been only those few rare events where I did common investigation and analysis. I have a little modified how I have dispensed my content material, especially YouTube now has community post capability which is excellent to spread news effortlessly as I have hundreds of subscribers. To prove that I’m still active in the animation community, I’ve been to the Manchester Animation Festival last month the largest in the UK, there I seen some foreign unbiased lively shorts, met Gumball, Elliott From Earth and 101 Dalmatian Street storyboarder – Bianca Ansems and had the chance to see Steven Universe The Movie on the large screen.
I have loads of connections in the animation industry, adding show creators, animators, writers, storyboarders, animation studios and broadcasters, these are too precious to give up. So you ask, what about my Facebook page and this blog?, what is going to happen to them?, well, I’m teaming up with a Central Eastern European media group called Prartoon to help run their Toonsphere and CRT websites, I’m already a “technical advisor” and made guidance on how both websites should run along some small jobs, we’re just trying to get things off the ground, but well-nigh, Toonsphere is an animation news website with a focus on western animation, ever since it stopped being the point of interest of ToonZone now rebranded as Anime Superhero, there’s still a need for similar to site. CRT is Prartoon’s other site and is a ordinary television news website. I’ve already given my Facebook page to Toonsphere, and in the future, the blog could be archived on the site for all to see. I have known the individuals who run Prartoon since late 2013 as I met them on ToonZone, so it’s been a few years since I definitely known them, so it’s eventually time to truly do anything great. So, I’m in reality spending time helping folks in the animation neighborhood rather than myself.
With the blog, I’ve proud with what I’ve done, I’ve met people I’d never thought I would ever meet, those BAFTA screening events were really something. Cartoon Network’s press office, DHX Media, Corus Entertainment CN Canada, Lego, BBC Press Office, Bardel Entertainment and plenty of more all follow me on Twitter, my Twitter account is too valuable now to do away with. I’ve been a member of ToonZone since September 2013, which is now a very long time ago, next month it could be five years since going for walks the Twitter account and should be five years since doing the blog. Things have modified, CN is lots different now to when I began the blog, Adventure Time and Regular Show have ended, The Amazing World of Gumball has almost ended, a higher technology of kids are a lot alternative to the time when I was growing up too, there’s even a difference between those of their early 20’s and those drawing near their 30’s. I’m now in the head end of Adult Swim’s target demographic and miles past CN’s, if my 20’s went this simply, I’ll be 50 before you realize it. Five years is one sixth of my life so far.
To be honest, in recent months I’ve been watching less and less cartoons and felt somewhat disconnected from what I was writing, I desired to enjoy it but just don’t have the time to make the commitment anymore, I run the blog on top of a full time job. The blog is costing me a lot money as it’s outgrown shared hosting, I always lined the prices, I haven’t set up a Patreon to be honest, Cartoon Community news channels have Patreon money owed though they’re not the normal news source, why should I pay someone to read the news for me, when I can read it at once from the source myself or ads even though there has been a short AdWords experiment on the blog, however it wasn’t fruitful and the ads had no relevance to the content material at all. I did not ask for a single penny from anyone to run the location. I plan to archive the positioning someplace, with a bit of luck somewhere inexpensive as it can be used less often, I’ll just leave the positioning abandoned. Cartoon Network’s old owners – Turner is dead, the old management has left what was known as Turner’s parent agency – Time Warner now WarnerMedia owned by ATandT, also CN is now a part of Warner Bros. Warner Bros.
will no longer only include Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Adult Swim with Toonami and Adult Swim, but in addition Warner Bros. Animation, the anime streaming service – Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth and VRV. I just don’t have the time to hide this amount of reports, plus the per 30 days highlights as well as dealing with the YouTube channel which elements the promos on the channel, which is anything that CN/Turner/Warner Bros. etc. should really be doing themselves with a much bigger and better PR department. On demand streaming is CN’s eventual end goal anyway and I predict linear television could be dead in the US and most international locations in Western Europe within a better 15 years, there can be no point in importing promos, bumpers and continuities as there’ll no longer be any.
People in the “caricature neighborhood” The only neighborhood I belong to is where I live opt to hear what CN Confessions, CN Schedule Archive or The Rise of Fall of Nickelodeon who also covers CN News etc. has to say anyway, it’s sad that folks want rumours, opinion, drama, criticism and controversy more than instantly news. I guess my blog was more of a broadsheet newspaper and everybody else’s a tabloid. I never understood the obsession of schedules in the “cartoon neighborhood”, these days you’ll watch shows every time you love, I wish that was around when I was a kid.
