Ertai’s Lament Site Update (Plus a Teaser)
Time for another of the periodic “site news” posts about the state of Ertai’s Lament. These tend to be a bit dry, but I like to keep folks informed. As a reward, there’s a little preview teaser at the end that should get a few folks excited.
I: A New Schedule
Longtime readers will know that in my first run of the site, from 2010-13, I posted a new article every 48 hours. Yeah, let that sink in. Of course, that was before I had four young children, so my free time these days is a bit wonkier.
Still, I know people enjoy a schedule as much as it helps me to have one. I’ve been back long enough now that I’ve got a good sense of what’s possible, and I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be shifting over to an actual schedule. Not only will this let folks know when to check back for more content (rather than the present system of “whenever I post it), but it will also help me in scheduling what sets I am going to do in the future. It will also help keep Part 1 and Part 2 contiguous, as they should be.
The new schedule is one deck per week:
Mondays – Part 1
Wednesdays – Weekly precon column at Gathering Magic
Friday – Part 2
This doesn’t take into account the non-review content we’ve historically done, like Prconstructed Championships, that is considered “bonus content” and doesn’t take the place of regularly scheduled content.
It will take us a couple weeks to “get on schedule” since we have a lot of Part 1’s that need Part 2’s, but once we’re caught up, look for the schedule to be in effect.
Back when I started this site, I also joined Twitter to engage about Magic: the Gathering under the handle @ErtaisLament. That continued for awhile, but with the running of my store and break from Ertai’s Lament, it became increasingly dedicated to my other major passion: soccer. At some point, I even changed my handle to @77_Dredd.
If you were to read my Twitter feed now, you’d have to sit through loads of soccer content. It’s not a great medium for people with more than one passion. So… I’ve decided to break them apart. You can now follow me on Twitter for MTG-related content at @ErtaisLamentMTG.
And that’s it! If you’ve come this far, thanks for sticking it out. Here’s that teaser I promised.
Yeah, it’s coming…
