Bringing things to a close
Some of you may remember when this was a more active site, with new posts at least once a day. I’d write about the Newark Bears games, visiting different ballparks, adding new items to my baseball card and autograph collection, or my thoughts on the New York Mets.
The Bears are long gone…collecting has slowed due to life changes and changing interests. Trips to the ballpark have also slowed — again due to life changes — and I’m finding less motivation to write about them.
I visited one ballpark I’d never been to last year: Oriole Park at Camden Yards. I think I shared a few photos on Facebook, but I never got around to writing about that trip here. I went to the Mets’ home opener last week…and I still haven’t gotten around to writing about that either.
Part of that is knowing that there are so many better bloggers who write about the Mets that you could be reading…part of it is often not having time to stop & reflect until the news cycle has already moved on to the next thing.
And despite good intentions, I realize that is not going to change.
So thank you to those of you who’ve stuck with me over the years. I’ve made a few real life friends as a result of this blog, as well as a number of online ones. But even if we’ve never talked, I appreciate that you took the time to read whatever I had to say.
RandomBaseballStuff.com will remain online though the end of the year, at least…and maybe longer — it would make me sad to see this url turn into an SEO spam blog. But this is likely to be my last post here.
