See you in 2017 – although probably a lot less

I think we can all agree that 2016 sucked nuts and that we’re all happy that it’s over.  But on a personal level, 2016 was one of the best years of my life.  I was crazy busy this year and some of you may have noticed that I’ve been blogging a lot less.  Well, I hate to say it but I think the time has come for me to retire (or at least mostly retire) from VCN.  I started this site back in September of 2009 and I feel like 7 years is a pretty respectable lifespan for a goofy wordpress blog.  Right now I have no plans to shut down the site so it should still be here for a few more years.  But as of January 1, you won’t see many new articles from me.  I might blog every once in a while if I get really worked up about something but those posts will be few and far between.

If you’re a long-time reader of Video Contest News, I’d like to thank you for your time and interest.  (Even tough I’m retiring from this site, I’m going to continue entering video contests.  So you never know, you might wind up competing against me some time.)  I’d also like to thank all the companies that have sponsored VCN over the years, especially Tongal and Mofilm.  Both of those websites are incredibly awesome and their staffs really understand filmmakers and their needs.

One final thought; I wouldn’t mind passing this blog along to some other video contest addict.  So if anyone out there is interested in taking over VCN, let me know!  VideoContestNews@gmail.com.

Good luck and happy new year to all!
