Elvis has left da (blogging) building

Dear readers:

Screams from da Porch is shutting down. Yup. No kidding. I had a good run, a fun run and whatever. All that. The blog even picked up a nice award.

But, it’s taking up too much of my time and, quite frankly, I don’t feel that recently  I’ve been able to put the same effort into it as I did when I first started.

So, before any rumors start flying, or my words get twisted: This is my decision. No one is forcing me to kill it. I could continue doing this. I have opted not to. 

If you hear otherwise, there is no truth to it. I just don’t have the time and if you’re going to do a blog, then it should be done right, updated often, blah, blah. 

Still . . .  who knows.

Maybe there’s a sequel somewhere. (Never say never and all that.)

Perhaps a Screams from the Porch column in print edition?  (I never did do that follow-up for the “You’re not from Around Here” blog entry. ) There’s a thought.

That could be cool. Or not.

Anyhoo and in the meantime, you’ll still see me around the Deathstar and (occasionally) the Haunted Ivory Tower, covering county government. Heh.

Come up and say “hello.”

And again: Thanks to all those who dropped by.

Best,

Mike

Well, damn. I've gone from finding you annoying to considering you an indispensible read.

Your blog will be missed.

You will be missed. Your blog was both entertaining and informative. Heh! Do it until you get an award and quit while you're on top! Enjoy all the free time.
