A note from Cristina

Hello hello. This is probably the longest I’ve gone without an update (and even this is not that long.) If there’s nothing going on with Edsel currently, I’ll highlight moments from days gone by in his career or make up original articles like our merch spotlight feature. This leads to me posting about once a week, not including any social media posts I make.

Thing is, it’s also led to me to post content just for the sake of posting content. Posting on a consistent schedule is not always ideal for this sort of website, because sometimes there’s really and truly nothing to talk about. But I’ve set a precedent for a long time, and once that happens, it’s always in the back of my mind. “Oh it’s been x amount of days, I should be posting or updating the website.” It feels like I’m failing if I don’t keep up with an arbitrary precedent. (I know I’m not, but I feel how I feel)

Content for content’s sake is very contrived: it feels fake, and ultimately it’s a lower quality product. I want to be proud of the content I create, as does anyone. That may mean going forward, there might be a week or two (or three) that I don’t post. When I do, you can be sure it’s something worthwhile. I don’t want to waste your time on content I don’t 100 percent believe in.

I’ve had fans tell me they’re glad I’m around, because this website brings them closer to an artist that means a lot to them. That’s valid. And I’ll probably always be here.  It would take Edsel doing something truly horrific to make me not support him anymore. (I don’t see that happening, by the way. Just telling you I’m not fickle, and I see this as a long term project. I believe in my work, and in the person I’m trying to support.)

Please don’t take this as “poor me, boohoo, content creation is hard”. I find that just as annoying as you probably do. I know I’m not doing anything terribly important here. I’m not a big deal, nor does anyone owe me anything. At the end of the day, I’m a nobody with a bit of graphic design talent. I also didn’t want to jump scare you and make you think this was me saying goodbye. It’s not! I want to keep posting content, and I will. But like any content creator, I just want to put out a product that makes me happy, and that makes you happy. If that takes a bit longer, so be it.

Thank you for your understanding. Love you lots.
