What's Going on with LMOTD

If you've visited this blog in the past month or so, you've probably noticed that we haven't been posting much lately. There are actually some good reasons for this. There are some behind-the-scenes changes going on - long story short, I'm slowly making this more of a community site, with the ad revenue here supporting contests which will be announced in the months to come (we've already begun planning the first - I'm hoping to have an announcement to make about that sometime this summer).

While we do want to keep this blog going while we're bringing in more people and planning contests, we all have other things going on that are pulling us away from posting here. Matthew (Brickapolis) is in a bit of a "real life" crunch time, and recently became a man of mystery. Chris (Duckingham) recently started a phenomenal LEGO-based webcomic called "The Brick Side". I (Dan) recently got through some large school projects, graduated college, and started working at a promising start-up. A new LEGO store in our area is further distracting Matthew and me from blogging (what sort of coverage/appearances/volunteering we do for the grand opening festivities remains to be planned).

So here's what's going on right now: We'll try to post models when we can, but no promises that we'll actually be daily for the next few weeks. I'm currently looking for more LEGO fans to help write the site - we're looking for people knowledgeable enough about LEGO to write long-winded blurbs discussing techniques and history alongside daily models (we want to make sure we keep the same level of quality in future posts, even as we keep trying to increase the variety and frequency of posts). I'm going to continue editing and scheduling the blog - we're looking for contributors to write about models and LEGO news and then save the posts as drafts in Blogger. If you are interested in writing here at the LMOTD blog, send me an e-mail at - I'll try to be in touch with you ASAP.
