This has been a long time coming.
I want to tell you readers, you superfans, you darling reposters and resharers something I rarely feel it necessary to say. I’m sorry. I’m sorry to all of you, all of the WDDIJ staff members and guest blogger past and present, and indeed future. To all of our friends who link to our content and whose webpages we have linked here as well. And I want to make an apology to all of the people we work with like Otakast, Skeptical Minotaur, and many more it would take too much time to name.
And to be honest I have real true reason to say sorry to you all. Because I’ve let you down. And yes having seen the views dry up lately I’m well aware of your displeasure. I don’t know where it all went wrong entirely. I mean I remember getting that euphoria of our first anniversary, and passing the bar, and life seeming to be going right all over. And something just said, you can’t be like you have been. You need to change. And I did. I calmed down. I moved to lighter stories. I made myself more personable and more positive. And you all have finally gotten through to me.
You don’t come here for me to play nice and tell you about weird plane flights, how many books I read, or light-hearted tales about my FIFA14 career mode playthrough. You want me to take my two hands and take a hard entirely judgmental, absolutely ruthless look at a subject and then bask in the glory of the emails from people who hate my opinion while I make fun of them.
It is rather telling that I have not done a Note From Your Favorite Super Villain in some time. It is rather odd that someone who told you how much pride and honor he has in being referred to as Ruthless hasn’t taken aim at anything in quite some time. 1,134 times you read me taking a direct shot at one of my own professors. One I actually liked until he said what he said. And I hadn’t actually gone into complete ruthless prick mode. You’d think I would have seen the light then.
So some changes are coming. Sweeping though they may be I’m doing them so you don’t have to worry about me straying from the path. And that starts for me on Saturday Morning, but for you on Monday as you read this. Check out the other two pieces that accompany this blog post by me. And I promise more coming as well. And including the shakeups in the staff that are already happening, I promise much more controversy and polarizing opinion out of the entire WDDIJ staff that will go forward and a whole metric ton less of safe middle of the road material. Hot topics and cold analysis, no more lukewarm anything.
So Allow me to reintroduce myself.
I am THE Ruthless Wonder not A Ruthless Wonder and you are on Words Don’t Do It Justice.
So I said I’m sorry. Now get to reading.
