This blog has been a long time coming. 

Over a year ago I tried to do a blog on my main website, alanmccloskey.com… but I just never kept up with it.

The idea of this blog is to give you a behind-the-scenes peek at what goes on at OCModShop.com.  In addition to more of this meta-info, I and the rest of the staff will be writing mini-reviews.

Sometimes we have an idea about an article we’d like to put out into the world, but several factors limit this.  Writing a review on even a simple product takes many many hours of preparation, research, authoring, editing… and so some articles never make it to the light of day.  Sometimes the work vs. benefit ratio of the article makes it so that it’s just not worth writing about a particular subject.

Now we can put up a little mini-review or mini-editorials without all that work.  Of course, we respond to the readers, so if there’s something you want to see, or if there’s a particular topic that generates a lot of interest, then we’ll turn it into a full-blown article on the main site.
