Closing Shop (2011)

Greetings readers,

Originally I thought about writing another article about checking out Preble Shawnee’s gym, mainly because my dad went there (but he’s never been inside the high school located South of Gratis.) However, I have scrapped that post…for now. I want to talk about how I think the blog has went in 2011.

I remember I started January and February right with about 1,000 visits and eighteen posts (only four in February, though.) Then once I took a job to help pay my student loans, I didn’t have as much time as I usually did. The least I published was three posts in a month, I think.

The fact is, I think I let the fans down…all one of them. It was either I was working and didn’t have time to write or when I did have time I would be out of ideas. In terms of publishing time, I’ve slipped. I can remember when I first started the blog in 2010, I would be writing constantly. Now, not so much. I think I’ve foundĀ  a decent balance, but let’s hope I can continue to write.

I will say, upgrading to my own named website has been nice. It looks professional on a business card and it makes me feel important. It’s probably a lot easier to type, as well.

I liked the articles I published this year, though. I tried to incorporate social sports media, applications for smartphones, and the sports themselves. I think I hit a better scope of issues compared to the opening year.

Seeing how this is my last article of 2011, I would like to thank all the readers who’ve stuck with me. Thanks for all the support, and I hope you continue to stick with me for all the years to come!

I don’t have any big plans like any series or upcoming articles, but I will continue publishing articles when I can. Of course, suggestions are welcomed (if I feel like I can keep the topic interesting.)

Thanks so much, readers. Until next year,
