'S been a while, eh? Yeah, I've only got one excuse for that, but it's a BIG ONE.
You'll see that along with the site, The Nine has also launched a blog, Twitter feed and Facebook page. It's a large-scale assault on Web 2.0. Because of that, one of my biggest goals is to keep this from becoming one piece of information repeated ad nauseum to all of The Nine's followers, fans, visitors, etc. The Blog will function as the studied, more in depth exploration; Facebook as the page-turner, with all the news that's fit to share as well as links and videos of inspiration for us; Twitter is the mouthpiece of The Nine, offsetting the blog's verbosity with a what-you-about? casualization; and the website is, of course, home base.
That's a lot of stuff. And that's just the web side of things, much less the production itself. So I'm hanging up my heels on this here blog for a bit to focus on The Nine. (Oh lord, what will the world do without a once a month rambling on Chicago theatre??!) Does that mean this blog is done for good? I'm not gonna go that far -- if I ever make the claim that I'm done with this blog, I'm deleting the motherfucker for posterity that very same day.
I may be back from time to time. It probably won't be soon, though. So instead, transfer your attention to theninechicago.blogspot.com, or theninechicago.com, or twitter.com/theninechicago, or find The Nine on Facebook. Or all of the above. 'Cause that's where I'll be.
