Is it a Halloween thing? It's a Halloween thing, right?

To Holiday Content or Not to Holiday Content

It's getting to be Fall, which means temperatures are dropping... and we're about to run the holiday gauntlet: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years. IntroCave had a few holiday-themed intro videos when I took over the site, but I've de-emphasized them over time. The videos tend to be campy, and they don't sell well. There are still a few, but I've sorted ALLLLL the way to the back of most video lists (because I write the sort queries).

There are a couple of things that go into producing good holiday content. The first is PLANNING, which I kind of suck at. I'm writing this blog post in early October, having just released the new videos that I'm rolling out this month. Those videos were built over the last 2-3 weeks, though, and Halloween just wasn't on my mind yet in September. If you want to do it right, you need to be planning your holiday content months ahead of time, and my brain doesn't work that way.

For most holidays, that's fine... but I have a soft spot for Halloween. I might have to sneak in a couple of spooky mid-month templates to the schedule.

IntroCave is a one-person-show operated by Will Hankinson, but it's not 100% accurate to say every word is written by me. Some articles were live on the site when I took over. I hire writers from time to time to work on specific articles. People keep asking me to do guest posts, but I haven't actually seen any relevant submissions yet. "IntroCave staff" might make a better by-line, but currently that's just me. I've been building digital things for 10+ years now, and some of my favorite projects are posted over at my personal website if you want to take a look!
