As many of you know, I could not attend last year’s Weekend of Fire at Jungle Jim’s because I had foot surgery. For the very same reason, in addition to two other little reasons, I was not able to attend bigger shows as well. This means I was out of the chilehead community for a while…for almost 2 years. While that does not take away my interest in hot and spicy foods, it sure does take away my interest in writing about it here. On top of that, a couple of other major writers here have some really important stuff going on in their “real” lives that have interrupted their online presence. Add Facebook to the equation and you have quite a lull here at The Hot Zone Online. I am here to tell you, though, that I am back. For the foreseeable future, I will be writing about the products I tried at Jungle Jim’s Weekend of Fire. Beyond that, we will see. I still have many products on the shelf that I should have already written about, so I am sure that will occupy my time here as well.
Now, I want to point out that part of the disinterest in writing has to do with how formulaic things have been around here. Formulaic turned a bit monotonous. Thus, I may be switching up my reviews a bit and may not include some the things you are used to seeing around here. If that happens, please give me some feedback about it and/or ask a question so I can answer it as soon as possible. Deal? Once I find my camera battery OR peruse my phone pics to see if I have quality enough pics to post here, I will get started with reviews. It should not take long.
No, I am not single-handedly taking over the blog. We still have other writers here who will also be posting. I just think you will see a lot more posts by me in the short term and perhaps the long term.
