September Send-off…

September was a busy month, partly because every month is a busy month and partly because it really was the busiest I’ve ever been. Moving house on your first day back from holiday is not recommended; neither is going straight from having moved in to attending the Eurogamer Expo and the string of associated parties.

It should say something about how busy it was that Unlimited Hyperbole has been delayed. I’m hoping to put the first episodes out early this month, but I’m not going to skimp on quality just to meet a self-set and arbitrary deadline. Do it right or don’t do it.

So, sorry about that – especially to the guests who’ve been forced to wait before hearing the final thing.

Apologies and explanations aside though, here’s what else I did this month…

May Mayhem…

“If I can give you the words you need it will be a great victory”

May was a difficult month as, again, I spent a large portion of the month away from London, unable to work and caught up in so much family drama that I wasn’t able to even chase new work properly. My output was less than I wanted it to be as a result and the fact that I launched a new podcast didn’t help me focus on paying the bills either.

The good news though is that, by focusing towards the end of the month, I recovered lost ground at the same time as launching the podcast more successfully than I had hoped would be possible. Within two days I’d blown through the download limit for new shows, thanks to simultaneously hitting the front pages of Reddit and SomethingAwful.

But this isn’t the place for talking about Unlimited Hyperbole; this is the place for saying what work I did last month.

March Madness…

March was a busy month for me – and a lot of the work I did still isn’t out there for people to use, play or read – but being busy is a good thing to my mind. As I constantly find myself saying, I don’t like standing still. It’s always better to be moving forward.

One of the things I did, at long last, was to overhaul this blog a bit. I’ve ditched the ‘Unlimited Hyperbole’ title (though I may end up using that elsewhere) bought the http://www.joemartinwords.com domain and upgraded the site to feature no ads. In the coming months I’ll be refreshing my HTML skills hopefully and adding a few more things to improve the experience, but for now it is what it is.

What else have I been up to, you ask?
