State of the Blog

It's been a while since we've had a State of the Blog post, and I know that during the middle of the football season is a poor time to do it, but some things have come up that make it necessary.  The big announcement is that I am taking a step back from the blog, starting in the very near future.

I'm not leaving for good, but I will not be the person making sure that the readers get new content all the time.  After almost 3 years of running a blog as a hobby, I am a little burned out on the day-to-day.  I love following football, but running a blog is kind of like dating a nymphomaniac.  It's really fun... for a while.  Then it's just work.

Some life changes are also contributing to this decision.  Little Miss ATVS is getting a little bit older, and it's getting harder and harder to run this blog without it taking time away from her.  Also, as some of you know, my wife and I are buying a house and are moving.  The place we are moving to, as I learned earlier this week, will not have high speed internet access, so the decision I had been considering for a while became more urgent.

Poseur, Billy, Jrlz, and I will still be posting until further notice.  The other three will probably be posting at the same frequency they're posting now.  I have taken some steps to make sure that someone of skill and ability will take over the day-to-day duties of running the blog, and he will add a fresh new direction as well.  We aren't quite ready to make an announcement as to what that's all about because some loose ends are remaining to be tied.  Hopefully we'll have something for you very soon.

I'll still be occupying this space for the time being, however.  And thanks to everyone who has helped make this a successful blog and has helped make this a lot of fun, which includes but is not limited to you the reader.
