Yeah, I know we've been a bit quiet again. My excuse is simple; I have an ongoing illness and it tends to interupt my plans on a consistant basis. But everything is going well for Buttonhole, so fear not. There's going to be a massive amount of new material posted within the next week or two. You have my word on that and it will all be worth waiting for!
Another excellent developement took place for us "behind the scenes". Last Editorial I mentioned that Atari had come on board the Buttonhole express. Well, now Vivendi Universal has joined us as well! VU Games are one company I have a very high opinion of. So now Buttonhole has a truly awesome list of game publishers on board. Check it out: Atari and VU (as I just mentioned), THQ, EA, Pulse/Microsoft, Ubisoft, Activision and (sometimes at least) Sony. Pretty killer line up isn't it? So hooray for us and hooray for our readers!
Shock, along with the DVD support they already give us (which is particularly helpful due to all the great WWE wrestling DVDs they publish), have started supporting us with some of their excellent music stuff too! So, that should help us keep our music section as one worth reading
Madman/Av Channel have said they'll send more DVDs our way soon too. So the Anime stuff should start to get more coverage.
The end of the year is approaching faster than... something that goes much faster than you'd expect it to. Buttonhole only officially launched in January of this year. As we head towards that one year mark, I'd have to say that I'm extremely proud of what we have achieved so far. We have built a great team, which has continually grown and improved. We've also become somewhat noticed, much more quickly than I'd hoped. If you haven't seen that other people in this industry have been paying attention to us and our unique style, you probably need to take another look around. I'm proud of how well we have done, I love the kind of readers we attract and everyone on team Buttonhole has exceeded my expectations (which weren't all that low to begin with).
If you have any questions or comments about the site, or anything you feel like sharing, go for it. You can email me,or jump on the Forums. Everyone is welcome, unless you totally suck.
Buttonhole is here to stay, baby! If we continue to surge ahead at such astonishing rates...basically we'll be able to do whatever we want to do and/or whatever you want us to do! Unless you want us to get Jessica Alba (or Brad Pitt, or whoever the chicks are most into these days) to satisfy you sexually. But that's only because I want to keep that type of thing for myself. I'm selfish that way.
Thank you very much, you're a beautiful audience.
