It’s been a long time, hasn’t it? Before today, the last time you heard from me, I was complaining about Olympic coverage. That’s a long time ago. Nine days short of two years to be exact. During that time, I pretty much gave up on the whole blogging thing. I was burned out. I was disillusioned. I was done.
I let the original www.andrewtisonthecut.com domain go* figuring I’d never return, or if I did, I’d always have the free BlogSpot domain name to satisfy any urges to spill my guts all over the intertubes. Truth is, I really let my social internet presence go to hell. My Twitter account has been overrun by the standard Twitter weeds of “Social Media Gurus” and girls looking for dates. I started whoring Twitter feed to advertisers selling electronic cigarettes and cheap glasses, thinking I could make a fast buck. So very sad. While I still have connections via Google+ and Facebook, I’ve pretty much lost touch with just about everybody I met during 2009 and am sure that my slutty Twitter feed ruined any good will I had built up. It was incredibly flaky and for that, I am truly sorry.
The good news, for at least me, is, I kept checking into the site. Sure there was nothing going on, but I was enjoying reading what I had wrote and remembered the fun I did have. So, I secured a new domain name www.atiotc.com and updated the look of the site. I think I’ll have another go at this thing. I don’t think I’ll match the 600+ posts of 2009 or will promote the site as aggressively as before. This is for me and I hope you have as much enjoyment reading it as I do writing it.
Now, since the site has been dead for so long, I lost pretty much all of my followers, which weren’t that many to begin with. I probably has as many people reading as Christian Slater had listening when he ran his pirate radio station in “Pump Up the Volume.” Right now, I kind of feel like he did when he stared his station and nobody listened. That’s cool. I don’t mind.
*Speaking of the old domain name, it now belongs to a Japanese teeth whitening company and is owned by an individual named Yamaguchi. How you get teeth whitening out of andrewtisonthecut is beyond me. Surely somebody can enlighten me.
