2013 has come to a close, and we look forward to the new year. We also want to take a quick look back. This year I decided to really beef up the content on this blog. The other former Gazz blogs were posting less frequently. The rest of the Charleston Gazette had moved sort of behind a paywall, and I had more topics that I wanted to cover on a regular basis.

I already had three regularly-scheduled posts each week, Monday Morning Art, Sunday Evening Video and Friday’s PopCulteer psuedo-column, but I decided to add The PopCult Toybox every Tuesday and The PopCult Bookshelf every Thursday. Well, almost every Tuesday and Thursday.

In the summer I decided that Saturday would be a good spot for the RFC Flashback, as I remaster and repost the missing episodes of the show that were taken offline when MySpace committed suicide last June. That left Wednesday as the only “blank” day,” and it’s easy to find good stuff to put there.

In fact, this post is the 365th PopCult post of 2013. I have managed to average one post a day this year (although I just barely made it, and a lot of that had to do with last week’s Christmas Treats stunt). My goal for 2014 is to do even more.

Radio Free Charleston will continue, with the RFC MINI SHOW filling the gaps between full-length episodes. We will soon be launching RadioFreeCharleston.com, which will act as a clearing house that will join this blog to the RFC Facebook page and the RFC Archives, which are currently under construction.

We will also continue to bring you news, essays and photos along with our book and toy reviews, art and silly video asides. We also hope you remember that you can leave comments here at PopCult. It’s pretty easy. You don’t have to do it through Facebook now, and we do value your input. Plus it makes us feel like we’re not producing this blog in a vacuum.

We do wish the happiest new year for all our readers. Just wait until you see what we have planned for 2014.
