So, I’m feeling a bit sluggish on updating the Big Master Review List. My enthusiasm has dimmed a bit. Not because I dislike it, but reached a bit of a plateau of effort/reward. At the current numbers:
- Authors: 2842
- Stories: 7161
- Total Reviews: 12255
It’s kind of a drop in the bucket for each new review. With my lack of updates here on the blog I don’t have as much interaction with the pony social circle, which makes sense. Gotta update and be present for people to pay attention after all. Just isn’t helping my general sloth at the moment I guess. Not to mention it’s gotten big enough that my connection and/or computer actually has trouble loading it when I bring up the webpage. Most likely from all the cross-sheet formulas I’m using for the realtime stats. I’m still pretty proud of it, just… Lost that spark for the moment. Of course, 17 Fic Rec posts from PP is something of a looming obstacle as well.
So, a call out for a bit of inspiration. Anyone out there used and/or browsed the Big Master Review List in the last week? If people check it out even when it’s not being updated that would be a morale booster. My main motivation in life, such as my brain has motivation, is I like to be useful and helpful to other people in some small way.
On the plus side, the day this goes up on the blog I should be getting a shiny new smart phone. So I’ll have a couple of days (at least one day I hope) messing with the new gizmo. That is always a mood boost.
