I overextended myself in October. I admit this. The result was worth it -- Classic-Horror busted through all previous traffic records and we posted more content than in any previous month, with 32 reviews, 34 news stories, 7 features, and 2 interviews. Of those, I wrote eight of the reviews, all the news stories, six of the features, and I conducted one of the interviews via email and transcribed the audio of the other (all told, a total of nearly 22,000 words).

At the same time, I'm a little drunk on the amazing traffic we pulled in October and keen to maintain a regular review schedule to try and keep some of that traffic.
