After five years and seven months (and 4,070 posts) of doing what I do, I’ve been given the opportunity to leave the blogging world.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s been an amazing run, but at some point (and given some of the events of the week), one has to put ones life in perspective and figure out what is more important: Family, finances, and living healthy come to mind.
Ultimately, the current political scene has left me a bit out of sorts. 2011 is going to be one of those years that I simply don’t feel I have the political energy to which to commit. And don’t even get me started on 2012. Frankly, I’ll leave it to my buddies at Texas Progressive Alliance and the local blogger scene to do what they do so well.
More importantly, I have found an opportunity for bigger and better things–nonpolitical, of course–and I intend to give it my all. And due to my new professional responsibilities, this blog must end.
To all my readers, thank you. It’s been quite the privilege to provide you some online reading material for all this time–more time than I really expected, actually. Perhaps I’ll say a few things on Facebook, at least for those who are my friends; otherwise, I look forward to living my life away from the deep end of the political swimming pool and just be a citizen voter and loyal American taxpayer for a while.
Hasta la victoria siempre!
(FYI: I’ll be suspending the site after today. Like I said, due to professional responsibilities, the blog’s gotta go.)
