I love LOW but have serious trouble keeping anything I begin going. It's likely just laziness on my part, but am tired of starting and not continuing with whatever I run. Looking for advice on how everyone here keeps their Fed going.
Avoiding burnout is the key for me. I used to play multiple cards at a time whenever I found time to play but writing up the results got to be too much. I think once I get started again, I'll do one show at a time regardless of how much time I have. Also, I think planning too far in advance was a contributing factor. While I liked the forward planning, it made it really difficult to work new guys in when a new set came out.

I have always tried to start small then slowly grow into multiple promotions. Sometimes I grow too big and have trouble getting everything done. If you look at the history of the Sinclairiverse you will find several major changes over the course of the years I've been playing. Right now I think I have a decent balance of 5 feds, three for the men and two for the women. They run 1-2 events a month which I believe helps the flow of my feds. I've also added in special attraction tournaments to add into the overall experience of my feds and to change things up from time to time while using the newer cards that get released during my game year.

Years ago I tried running multiple feds with all the B/W cards. It became unmanageable to tell the truth with real life derailing any effort.
However, what I do is keep one primary fed and roll results, sometimes well in advance of results for the board. That way I have a pool of items to post. My cycle typically goes like this: roll 3-4 cards in advance and then writeup a few days later. I usually post my bank of results a few days/week apart.
I also roll many matches outside of the canon of my primary fed. This is similar to how I ran multiple feds but stick with 3-4 matches from a region where cards may have a common tie-in.
For example, had Larry Zbyszko defend his "Americas" title in a mini-series against both the Patriot and Fit Finlay. Had an undercard to support these bouts as the Killer Bees battled Buddy Rose & The Grappler or had the Playboy teaming with Gorgeous George to stick with the AWA feel. Plus I had the Crusher beat Ox Baker in a Steel Cage Match and Bockwinkel meet David Taylor. These specials help break up the myopia of creativity I face when focusing on just one fed. All these bouts seemed fun and unique to me, but now with some of them potentially in color I can always gravitate to others if that makes sense.
