I've decided that 2008 will be my last year at the helm of The Baseball Card Blog.
It's taken over too much of my life and the only way to save the both of us is if I bring in other writers or simply shut the site down. I've thought about this long and hard. It was not an easy decision to make.
When I started writing back in January of 2006, The Baseball Card Blog was the lone active card blog (Chris Harris' stellar Stale Gum was up but not active). 500 posts later and we're in the middle of a sports card blog renaissance. With so many good sites out there (Cardboard Junkie and Wax Heaven, to name just two), there's simply no need for me to continue to make frequent posts.
I thank you one and all for the attention–positive and negative–you've bestowed on this blog. As I said at the top, I will continue through the end of the year, then I will diminish my role as sole writer for 2009 and beyond.
PS: I came to this decision a few months ago. Of course, I may change my mind as the year progresses.
