A few weeks ago it became apparent that my traffic was out of control on my site so I decided to announce releases via the blog so people could hammer on blogger instead of atwoodknives.com. Also, that way they could set up the notification methods associated with blogs and stop running robots and quit with the obsessive page refreshing.
Now some people are thinking that everything will be released via the lottery system. While that remains to be seen I was envisioning this primarily as a fair method of releasing small batches and one of a kind pieces, not batches of fifty or a hundred.
Right now I'm sticking with my previous game plan and I will be releasing larger batches via blogger with a link to a page on my site. Right now I am in between large batches and unless I get to work on the next one this week I expect it's going to be at least two weeks or more before we see the next major release.
In the past, there would be no activity whatsoever while I was grinding the next batch. I figure that with the lottery method at least there will be a trickle of stuff coming out on a more or less daily basis. And it will be more of the fun stuff that I have not been able to figure out how to post without getting fifty emails for one object and then having to decide who gets it. This way it is fair rather than subjective. Only those that actually want the item up for consideration will sign up for it so I think it makes a lot of sense.
