When I started this blog 4 years and 9 months ago, I was 42 1/2 years old, my son was just a one-year old, my daughter was only two months away from her 3rd birthday, and I had a job that afforded a somewhat reasonable work/life balance.
Today, I’m 47 years old, my daughter is now 7 1/2 years old, my son is four months away from his 6th birthday, and my current job has more of a “trading floor” pace to it (except this floor is open for a minimum of 9 hours a day, Monday to Friday).
Also, today, I have an increased focus on taking care of myself – much more than I did back in 2005.
Basically, I don’t have the time to write this blog that I used to have at my disposal – now that the kids are older, my job has changed, and I have other – and frankly more important – interests (such as maintaining good health).
So, I’m at a crossroads in terms of which way to go…with respect to the future of WasWatching.com.
I once thought that a change in my posting pattern was the solution – fitting it in where I could, etc., (rather than trying to make 4 or 5 posts a day). But, at the same time, on a back burner, I’ve been considering adding other voices to the blog (to offset my lack of posts and fill in the gaps).
But, lately, I’m starting to think that perhaps it’s time to just shut it down – completely.
Like I said, I’m at the point where there’s three ways I can go with this – and I don’t have a strong feeling, at this junction, as to which road I want to take (as I move forward). Each route has its pluses and minuses – and I need to play the pro and con game to sort it all out.
To that end, since this should be a slow week for news, etc., I’m going to take a few days off from the blog – unless something major breaks in Yankeeland. In the interim, while I’m away, feel free to use the comments section of this post to discuss anything you want that’s Yankees related. (Heck, I might even chime in, here and there – as time allows. But, I can’t say that for sure now.)
See you in a bit…
