I’ve decided to kill off “Tales from the Darkside” as a blog. It will still live on as a weekly wrestling column, but the blog itself is going to undergo a dramatic metamorphasis.I’ve been (pardon the pun) wrestling with this big idea now for a few months, which will involve an entire “re-branding” of my stuff.

HeadsDown is slowly evolving into a real business, and it’s probably inappropriate for me to store my personal stuff on the site, so it’s time for me to step up, buy a new domain, and move stuff over to it.

Additionally, Tales from the Darkside has kind of become my “brand” for my wrestling stuff, and I don’t want to confuse the two sites anymore (it’s very hard to put two links into my columns, one for “Tales from the Darkside” archives, and one for “Tales from the Darkside…the website”.

So the big question is, what next? Do I get a vanity URL? Do I go out and buy my own name like my friend Ryan did? Do I buy my own URL?

I have a couple of cool ideas for “brands” of my own, one of them hit me like the proverbial bolt out of the blue today, and makes a lot of sense.

What’s next? Keep watching, to borrow the tagline that was on HeadsDown for over a year, “Change is coming”.
