A development in the Big News department, and one that is a difficult announcement to make. But I’m excited to start a new position at the company I’ve been part-timing at for the last few years, and this position will require a much larger time commitment, and will result in a great decline in my time spent on puzzles. Unfortunately, I’ll be unable to keep up with a weekly schedule here. On the bright side, I will be still presenting Rows Gardens and other puzzles on a monthly basis. Tuesdays have become the norm, so circle your calendar for a March 5th date for Rows Garden #114. Also, there may be some extra puzzles in between on a more irregular basis; the best way to keep abreast of all that I’m offering is to follow Aries Puzzles on Facebook.
It’s a bittersweet announcement for me, as I truly enjoy creating puzzles and I appreciate all the feedback I’ve gotten over the last 27 months. I’m not going anywhere, but I’ll just be stopping by less often. I feel that the quality of the puzzles have been affected by my already tightening schedule, and a time crunch can lead to some unsavory compromises made in puzzles that, if I had more time, would have been better. So I’m confident that the puzzles in the future will be quality puzzles that won’t have a rushed feel to them. I feel I owe you that much!
Thanks for everyone who has solved the puzzles thus far, and I hope that you keep coming back.
