I regret to announce

I was hoping to do this when the Cards hit a high note, not much high about tonight. I’m tellin’ ya folks, Mulder is DONE. Anyway, for a number of different reasons I don’t think I’m continuing this blog. I may sleep on it a night or 2, but I think this is the end. Not because the Cardinals are doing so bad, mostly because I’d like to have more time with my wife and I have a baby on the way, which I could imagine will cut into time and sleep. While I enjoy writing, I feel like there are a lot of other great Cardinal blogs out there (Viva El Birdos, The Birdwatch, Get Up, Baby! Fungoes, Cardnilly, Cardinal Diaspora, 26th Man and more.) and I know I’m not the best writer in the world, but like I said it was fun. Maybe too much fun, as I have a tendency to go overboard and waste TOO much time not just blogging but surfing the web combing over stats, articles, etc. I do appreciate all my readers and the good feedback, but unless I can find a way to better balance family life, work, church and blogging I’m hanging it up.

The site should be up for another week or so, so a crack in the door is open I suppose. Not trying to be wishy-washy or anything, I was going to wait seasons end but what else is there to say but this stinks, that stinks, blah blah blah?

If there’s an article of mine you like, better save it now because it will be gone soon.

I’m sure I’ll  post the occasional diary at VEB, and still comment over there regularly.

I didn’t post daily over the summer so i tried posting at least once a week.

I hear ya, Eric; I’ve been focusing most of my blogging time on my other site, and I think it would be that way even if the boys were having a great year. Still, I hate to see you go, but life takes precedence. I’ll keep popping in, just in case, and I’ll see you over at VEB.

I know I’m kind of new to the Cardinal blogdom, but I thoroughly enjoyed your blog and hate to see you shut it down. Good luck in all your future endeavors.

Erik-

You SO cannot give this up…but I understand you have priorities. Running into that in my own life to a certain extent.

Good luck, and I hope you come back soon!

Well, drat. It was good while it lasted, but we better keep seeing you at VEB! Let us know when your new one arrives!

Congratulations on not having screwed up priorities. You ran a great blog, I’ll see you around VEB, no doubt.

Ditto to Danup’s comment. Keep up the good work over at VEB!
