I was going to discuss some things for the website last week, but real life got in the way. I would normally not discuss something that heavy, but I was so disgusted with what I was seeing, that I had to say something. I try to keep things light, and I will try not to discuss anything that heavy on this site anymore.
With that out of the way, I will discuss some things with the site. I’ve been starting work on schedules for 2018, and I’ve made a few set in stone decisions for next year. The first thing I’ve decided is that the schedule will remain the same for 2018 as it is in 2017. I like the way the schedule works, and I see no reason to change at any time.
For Throwback Thursday, I’m going to focus on endurance racing, and I may or may not grade some of the Truck Series, but I haven’t made the final decision on that yet.
When it comes to the videos on Monday. I’m putting the finishing touches on Seasons 19 and 20 of Introduction to Sports Memorabilia. I’m done with season 19, and I will finish season 20 within the next few weeks.
Earlier this year, I announced that F1 Month will be replaced with Little Guy November. Little Guy November will feature uniform items used by drivers who aren’t in the big leagues. The point is that there are many race car drivers who don’t race professionally. I’ve since decided that 2018 will also have Little Guy November. I can also promise that real uniform aficionados will love the first two articles of 2017 Little Guy November.
Speaking of theme months, Wheel Reviews January will return in 2018. I have two books and two movies that I will be reviewing for January. This comes after I spend December with the Paint Schemies, and the Paint Scheme Leaderboard. I treat December as a kind of sabbatical, but instead of relaxing, I spend most of that time working on other aspects of the site. I can get a lot done in that time, and since I don’t have to do the tracker and grades every week, it helps me get work done.
I do also plan on going off topic, but I’m planning it out better than I did this year. I have some interesting topics planned.
I know I say this every year, but I do plan on bringing back Tailgating Time for 2018. While I have said this in the past, I do have a plan for 2018, but more on that later.
Other than that, there isn’t much to report right now. I’ll be back soon with more.
