8/17/17: LME Schedule Announcement

I’ve been running this site during my night and weekend hours, on top of working a full time day job, for about two and a half years now. I’m having to face some hard facts about the limitations of my time and energy, so today I’ve got an LME schedule announcement.


Different Direction


I put a lot of time and effort into LME. Ads on the site only earn enough to pay site expenses and cover my time at a minimum wage rate, and it’s getting harder for me to justify giving up most of my free hours to keep the site going. I don’t want to quit though, because I really do love Alexa and all my Alexa devices and I like providing this resource to others who feel the same. Still, there are only so many hours in the day.

Going forward, I will only post on Wednesdays if there’s major news or something that seems important and urgent to share. Mondays will still be devoted to Things To Ask Alexa Easter eggs, and on Tuesdays I’ll continue to run posts of interest to Alexa developers. Fridays will be a mix of Fast Tips Friday posts and the same types of how-tos, rumor mill, mail bag and informational posts I used to run on Wednesdays. The Weekly Summary will continue to run as usual on Saturdays.


Sorry, and I hope my readers will understand.
