Ron's Retirement and the Future of the Top Ten

So, I just read about Ron taking a break from From The Warp. First thing that came to mind was "My Baby! Who will take care of my baby!" Yep, I am still attached to the Tuesday Top Ten.

So, I sent an email to Ron about a transfer of power, with me taking the Top Ten back. (See, this is what I get for thinking about retiring!) Ron did an excellent job with it, but I really do understand how much of a time and energy drain it can be.

So, would it be business as usual with me back at the helm? Nope, not a chance in Hell. See, right now I am working a 12 on, 2 off schedule. My time off is very limited. In addition, I am working swing shifts now (2pm-10pm), not as happy as my mids... AND, I have a hard time visiting sites to check content from work, so I would have to do it from home again.

A friend of mine on Twitter (@40kterrain) Suggested getting some volunteers to pick a link each, and writing up a blurb about it, and posting that. Well, I tried something that before, and got a single volunteer. Just one. Not dismissing it out of hand though, but Ill likely modify it for my needs and who I can get to help.

So, lets see, Id be changing the posting schedule (likely every other week), Id be changing the means of collection (at least a little bit), Im considering changing the focus a small bit. Maybe I will even change the name. ;)

Ill let you know what is going on when Ron gets back to me.

I'd offer to help, but I don't think I could handle the power. We'd see a lot of my blog on the top ten every week. LOL

Similarly, I'd like to chime in and say "I'll help" but once this holiday is over I don't know if I will be able to stay on track hobby wise.

as Peter Parker once said "With great disposable income comes feck all time to do anything with it."
