That’s It, That’s All

My apologies to regular readers for not posting more content as of late, but I’ve been going through a pretty large personal and professional transition.  This week is my final week as the Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations with your Clinton LumberKings.  I have accepted a new position with the Gwinnett Braves, Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves.  There, I’ll be putting my writing skills to work as the new Media Relations Coordinator.  It’s a huge jump for me in a lot of ways, but I’m hoping my six years of experience here have prepared me well for the job.

The move unfortunately means that I won’t be contributing to this blog anymore.  On my “things I’ll miss about Clinton” list, posting on the LumberBlog will probably rank second behind the radio broadcast itself.  I started this thing back in 2009 not really knowing what I was going to do with it, and eventually it became a way to share all of my daily work with you.  I’ve said it before, but I’m continually surprised with how many visitors the blog generates monthly.  The LumberBlog finished #28 on the MLBlogs Top 50 list this past month and has been in the Top 50 for every month since May of 2009.  All of that traffic for a blog covering a small-market, low-A team.

I’m certain that the next LumberKings’ voice will pick up blogging where I left off, but this blog itself is now closed.  I’m planning to keep it as an archive of my work from the past three seasons.  Thanks again for reading regularly or simply checking in every now and again, it has meant a lot to me.
