Where has Rob been?

I’ve been doing Bronx Baseball Daily for nearly five years now and this has been, by far, the longest I’ve ever gone without an update so I want to apologize to the regular readers for that.

Unfortunately, I don’t know how much I am going to be able to post on BBD going forward. You see, I’ve started a blog dedicated to sports in Brooklyn, where I live, which is backed by the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and appropriately titled Brooklyn Eagle Sports. I plan on continuing Bronx Baseball Daily and will not shut it down, but I am dedicated to growing that site at this point and I also occasionally cover other stories for the newspaper so it has been difficult to find the time here that I am used to spending.

My initial hope was to find somebody to replace me doing regular daily posts while I do semi-weekly columns, but it’s a hard task and the little money that I can afford to pay somebody is not extremely enticing. If anyone out there is interested in becoming a regular daily writer, or knows somebody that is interested, please email me at [email protected] Like I said, I can afford to pay writers, but it will be a relatively small stipend.

On that note, I do want to say thanks to the readers and all of the people that have contributed to BBD as a writer. I have been doing this for nearly five years, been an affiliate of Fox Sports, ESPN, and now the YES Network and it’s been a blast. When I started it there were a lot of people that were very condescending and didn’t understand what I was trying to do. But the readers kept me going and along the way which has been instrumental in helping me start my career in journalism.

Like I said, I will continue to run and update BBD though it probably won’t be with the regularity that you’ve become used to. Thanks for being apart of my nearly 6,000 past posts and hopefully you’ll stay with me for a few more.
