Unfortunately, I'm implementing this decision for business sense. Originally, I had the idea to help the numerous PR companies/labels that contact me on a daily basis asking for reviews and interviews. The interviews posted are multi-genre, featuring basic questions, designed to be modifiable and adaptable to any genre. The desire was to simply help various band and labels across a multitude of scenes, even outside of my own tastes, as you all saw from the range of interviews.

The response has been tremendous, but I cannot keep up with the emails or post the interviews as promptly as intended. When one backlog is cleared, another 30 emails arrive, and I fall behind again, but is starting to have a detrimental impact upon 'Ancient Visionz Talk Radio' and 'The Wastelands Punk/Metal Radio'. Outside of running the Ancient Visionz site by myself, I'm part of an underground hip hop label called Planet X Records. My PR duties for them are also struggling due to the backlog of written interviews I'm trying to work through. 

I'm not ungrateful or resentful, but it is a matter or prioritising time allocation, and with no help available for the site, I'm finding it incredibly difficult to maintain the pace. Ancient Visionz is a diy site, I cannot afford to pay a team of 30 writers to help, nor can I find any reliable people to share the work load. Patrick from Winter Torment zine has been trying to do what he can, but he also has 3-4 sites to run.

The logical conclusion is to downscale and focus on what I can do through my radio shows, YouTube, and writing about areas of interest and music, when I'm able.

I'll still be hosting interviews on Ancient Visionz Radio, which is the method I prefer, but please be aware, the show focuses on indie film and movies, presenting wider content mixed with music.

Peace and thank you for understanding.
