I received the honor earlier this summer to have Jonathan Greene and Dale Willman of Saratoga Wire, Saratoga Springs' new news web site which will be focusing on local news, approach me and ask me to write for their new endeavor. I have been wondering for a few years now what to do with this web site Funsaratoga.com. I have appreciated the positive feedback and incredible number of pageviews, not to mention the Saratogian's best blogger award in 2010, but I knew for the past few years I needed to either bring this blog to the next level, find a partner to create something new, or abandon it and move on.
I hated the idea of abandoning this web site, which I have been operating for almost 6 years. I had other very important professional pursuits ensuring police officers were effectively represented by honest and effective unions (read: my day job), so it made sense to join on with something that required only limited time from me and was aiming for something big. Saratoga Wire is something big, and I am thrilled that they asked me to blog for them.
I will be writing at least once weekly for Saratoga Wire, and you can read my first entry here which will also give you my overview of just what is happening at the Saratogian's first true competitor in several decades.
I am simply not sure what I will do with this blog, which I truly love writing. I will continue this rewarding hobby over at Saratoga Wire, and perhaps I will supplement my work for that site with other entries on my Funsaratoga.com site. Or not. Perhaps I will just soley blog on Saratoga Wire and shut this blog down. Time will tell. Please check on Saratoga Wire regularly for my submissions, give me feedback, and I will try to figure out the future of this blog in the coming weeks. It's all good - Take care folks.
