Back to the daily blog . . . 

So, it's been a week since we shut the store down. I still wake up with the urge to do store stuff. Four and a half years of putting everything into trying to make the shop a community, sacrificing my health and sanity. Now, I have plenty of time to focus on my health and my daughter, but I still want to be a part of the Geek Community.

There are a few things that I want to focus on in the Geek Community. The first is helping relations between your Favorite Local Shop (FLS), be it comic or game. Helping customers understand how those shops operate, order and help their communities and help shops communicate with their customers better.

I, also, want to help readers find more ways to access info about comics and games without overloading their mailbox. I'll still talk about the major events and products, but I'll work on finding other information sources that will allow you make better decisions about what you read.

And last, I would like to go back to the roots of what A Galaxy Called Dallas started out as. March 16, 2009, I posted my first post on the blog. I wrote about conventions, local authors and other members of the Geek Community. I would like to return to that reporting by focusing on local creators, events, websites, and shops that go above and beyond.

Oh, and you may find me waxing nostalgic about our time as a comic book shop. I'll post photos, talk about events that we ran, and our favorite customers. We hope to be back in business in the next two years. I may even discuss ideas for the new store and ask for your input. So, stay tuned as we move on to our next adventure.
