The Future: My Future Plans And What I’m Doing Next

As Steven Universe Future premieres tonight in the United States, there’s never been a better time to explain my future plans and my involvement in the cartoon community. The good news is that I’m not going anywhere, I am still active but I have been refocusing my efforts. My strengths are my Twitter account and my YouTube channel, which I find to be a more efficient and more effective method to reach more people and to share news in a less time consuming manner. Due to the changes at WarnerMedia and not worrying to do the blog anymore, I have expanded my range of news, I’m now covering not only Cartoon Network and Boomerang, but also Adult Swim, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics more, as well as Toonami (USA), Rooster Teeth and Crunchyroll for the first time. I still post Cartoon Network’s highlights on my Twitter and YouTube accounts.

After making the difficult decision of closing the blog, I’ve found that it made very little difference to those who read my content, in fact, I have attracted more followers than ever before. I wasn’t much of a writer, all I did was paraphrase articles I found and give a link to the source with very little input from me for each article, I decided to leave the news writing to the professionals, there were only those few rare occasions where I did original investigation and research. I have slightly changed how I have distributed my content, especially YouTube now has community post functionality which is great to spread news quickly as I have thousands of subscribers. To prove that I’m still active in the animation community, I’ve been to the Manchester Animation Festival last month (the largest in the UK), there I seen some international independent animated shorts, met Gumball, Elliott From Earth and 101 Dalmatian Street storyboarder – Bianca Ansems and had the opportunity to see Steven Universe The Movie on the big screen. I have loads of connections in the animation industry, including show creators, animators, writers, storyboarders, animation studios and broadcasters, these are too precious to give up.

So you ask, what about my Facebook page and this blog?, what will happen to them?, well, I’m teaming up with a Central Eastern European media group called Prartoon to help run their Toonsphere and CRT websites, I’m already a “technical advisor” and made suggestions on how both websites should run (alongside some small jobs), we’re just trying to get things off the ground, but basically, Toonsphere is an animation news website with a focus on western animation, ever since it stopped being the focus of ToonZone (now rebranded as Anime Superhero), there’s still a need for such as site. CRT is Prartoon’s other site and is a general television news website. I’ve already given my Facebook page to Toonsphere, and one day, the blog will be archived on the site for all to see. I have known the people who run Prartoon since late 2013 (as I met them on ToonZone), so it’s been a few years since I actually known them, so it’s finally time to actually do something great. So, I’m actually spending time helping other people in the animation community rather than myself.

As it’s December, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
