Signing Off

This blog has taken on a life of its own and it’s been an amazing ride.  The blog has been well received and to date there have been 25,714 views.

I’ve developed a loyal following and for those of you who read the blog on a regular basis – Thank you.  Thank you for reading and thank you for encouraging me to continue.

It takes a lot of time to come up with 4 or 5 blog posts per week and I’m starting to run out of content so it’s taking more and more time.  There are only so many hours in a day and I need to make some difficult choices.

No one forces me to do this blog and I’ve only continued it this long because of the feedback I’ve had along the way.  When I started the blog last fall on a dare I promised to continue it until the first of the year.  The first of the year has come and gone and now so has the blog.

I’m signing off and taking the time I devote to this blog and reallocating it to my career, my son and my wife – not necessarily in that order but each deserves my full attention.

So no matter where in the world-wide web you read this blog – Goodbye!
