Over the past five plus years of doing running DisKingdom, we've reached a point where things need a refresh, I need to sit back, take out some time out to look at what's working, what isn't and find a new clearer idea of what DisKingdom should be.
Back in 2014, we started off with the idea that we would cover everything "Disney", but it just was too much, resulting in the site narrowing down to covering collectibles and merchandise. But trends have changed, we've seen Vinylmation, Disney Infinity, Tsum Tsum's, Ufufy's, Dorbz, multiple mobile games plus many other products come and go, along with physical media giving way to more digital products.
The website is still going to be updated regularly during the process, but in the mean time, I'm going to be putting the DisKingdom Podcast on Hiatus, this will also include any new videos going onto the YouTube channel.
Since July, our YouTube channel, along with many others, saw its traffic drop 99% and with new rules coming into place in January, this has made making videos etc almost impossible to justify.
Luckily the audio version of the podcast continues to be popular, but to do it justice, I need some time to reevaluate what DisKingdom is going to be and where its future lies.
In this podcast episode, I do share my thoughts on the current state of collectibles, my own personal issues that have effected my personal collecting and why I feel its time to stop, take a break and work out what to do next.
The site/podcast isn't going anywhere, but sometimes taking stock and coming up with a new plan is needed.
