Closing Up Shop

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say I'm shutting the Patreon down and putting The Arena Media as a whole on an indefinite hiatus. I first started the site in 2016, and around a year ago I definitely felt burnt out with it all. I decided to give it a proper go through Patreon, thinking maybe if I monetised it and got a little return back for the hours I put in, that might produce a spark.

Sadly, I've been trying to pull myself together to write some reviews and articles, and I just don't have it in me. It sucks to put time and effort into stuff, which I've done a lot of, and have very little to show for it. Not even getting a lot of traction as far as likes, shares, comments is rough. Thank you to those on Patreon who signed up for the paid tiers, it means a lot that you thought my content was worth supporting that way. And also thank you to those people- whether you're fans, wrestlers, other performers in the industry- that always had kind words for me in person. But it's not fair on you to keep this going when my heart's not as in it as it once was.

I still love wrestling, and especially Aussie wrestling, I just need to find a different way to contribute if I can. I thought writing was it, but hey, the numbers don't lie, and they spelled disaster. Sorry. And if you're one of the few that supported, thank you.
