Hey True Believers, FFans, REEDers, Thing-A-Majigs, SUEthsayers, Torch Bearers, etc. It's Four Freedoms Plaza editor (and your friend) Kello here with a magnificent magnitude-shaking memorandum that is memorable in the mighty Marvel manner!
This past week I decided to refine the way I spend my time online. I closed down my twitter, deleted most of my Youtube videos, and made the announcement that I'll be deleting my other blog at the beginning of September. While those sites are being dismantled, I've also been cooking up ways to improve Four Freedoms. Here are some goals I hope to accomplish on this blog in the near future:
1.) Shorter posts- Less is more, right? The problem with having a site that reviews older material is that a majority of the readers don't have access to the actual comics. I hope to give enough background in each post that my reviews makes sense to the casually reader, without making everyone wade through 40 paragraphs of text.
2.) More Updates- More is more, right? I hope to post to this site at least once a week, which may not sound like much, but in reality is a lot more frequent than my current schedule.
3.) More Varied Material- Comic strips, video reviews, lists, as well as the previously established features: "One-Shot Showdown" , "Staying Current", and "Thinking Outside the Box".
4.) Make this a Site that all Types of Comic Fans Feel Welcome to Read -I'm not a die-hard FF fan by any means. I'm just a guy who bought a ton of comics for cheap, and wanted to document the experience of reading them. I think that lack of "blind allegiance" to the characters makes me more objective, and actually helps me find new ways to make fun of some of the material.
If it sounds like I'm just shifting a lot of what I used to do at Hello Kello over here, then you're very astute. But I hope you'll stick with the site and show some love through the comments section. I would be interested in any suggestions or feedback readers have. Want to see more or less of something? Want me to shut my yap and just talk about comics? Want fanfic of Ben marrying Crystal and going to live on Jupiter? Well... 2 out of 3 ain't bad.
So until the whole world reads this blog, vive le fantastique!
