Hey Zap, Where Have You Been?

This Chi-Chi's is abandoned, but my blog isn't.
It has been a while since I posted, hasn’t it? My free time and motivation to write have been sapped by some drama in my personal life, the details of which I’ll spare you. As a result, I failed to keep up with my self-imposed five post per month quota during the month of May 2019. I’m also going to refrain from posting for the remainder of the month of June, but I plan on resuming a normal post schedule starting in July.

In the meantime, here are a few ways to pass the time and satisfy your Broken Chains craving:

There’s over a year's worth of old Broken Chains posts to read and re-read, especially if you’ve discovered this blog recently. You'll find an archive of all posts in the sidebar to you're right. (To view the sidebar on a mobile device, scroll to the bottom of the page, and select "view web version.") Here are a few links to a few of my favorites:

You can also read the guest post I wrote for Tedium a while back.

The podcast, 99% Invisible recently put out a great episode about Horn and Hardart, the completely defunct chain of Automat restaurants. Give that a listen, maybe?

The Mid-South Retail Blog recently posted a Broken Chains-inspired article about a Bonanza in Tupelo, Mississippi. It was a fun read with lots of information about the south’s last Bonanza.

Thanks for reading Broken Chains, everybody, and thanks for bearing with me while I put my own metaphorical house back in order. I’ll be back in a few weeks with more tales from my visits to broken chains.
