Blog Announcement

Okay, i wrote yesterday that there’s going to be some changes coming up here and here’s what’s happening. I really want to do a blog where I go out and live blog every day. However, this after dark format just isn’t going to work for this new style of blogging. For one thing, most people are asleep or offline when I go out at night and while it’s still fun to look at the photos the next day, I think it’s a lot more fun for the audience if they can follow me live for the most part and watch the updates unfold in real time. So “Marty After Dark” is going to be coming to a close in a few weeks and then I’ll announce the new blog. I’ll continue to post here, but it’s just going to be random stuff and videos, as I’m going to be busy putting this new blog together. It’s always challenging building a new blog, as I’m not a technology guy, so it’s like starting from scratch each time I start a new one.

It’s funny, every blog I’ve ever done has led to another chapter.
I started out with The Marty Wombacher Show which morphed into A Guy Walks Into 365 Bars which in turn led to Marty After Dark. All of them have been fun adventures and I think the new idea could possibly be the most fun one of them all.

I want to thank everyone who reads this blog from the bottom of my heart!
I really can’t tell you how much it means to me to know that people take time out of their day to come here and I hope you all follow me into my next blog adventure. I’ll be announcing it in a couple weeks right here, so continue to check back when you can. As I said, there’s still going to be some random silliness every day until the announcement, which I’m thinking will be in about two weeks.

P.S. If you’re not on my mailing list and would like to updated via email when the new blog goes up, please send me your email address and I’ll add it to the list. And now, it’s off to work building the new blog!

The year 52 things are grey. Things that people sweated and bled for: The welsh fight to keep the Roman Empire out of Whales, the Armenians fight to keep the Roman Empire out of Armenia. The Roman Empire decide killing slaves needs a good reason other then fickleness, humor not excluded.

Read every word ever written in MAD, and loved every bit of it. I'm sure I'll love the new venture as well.

My must do list for 2012 includes getting together with you to put some away one night.

January 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSpike

Apparently 81 doesn't like me, third times a charm. Obviously not as special as 76!

January 4, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterkari

I'm jonesin' for a Wombacher fix already. I hope you get that new site up and running soon, 'cause my lunches aren't the same without a fresh-new 365 or MAD post to read while chomping on my big-ass salad.

@Bruce Davis: Thanks, Burce! Hopefully in about two weeks it'll be up and running! Nice to know someone else out there likes big-ass salads! (83!)

Neo-nazis identify with the number 88. Ironically, they usually can't count that high.
