The three new posts today are the last articles I’m writing for this blog.
When I started the blog last September, I wanted to provide a middle-of-the-view on issues and I was determined the blog was not going to dominate my life. To accomplish the latter goal, I decided to post new material once a week and to review comments three times a week.
The blog drew good readership on Fridays and weekends, then faded as the new week progressed. Clearly, people want to see new material more than once a week–and I’m not willing to get that involved.
When I started writing my column for The Union in January, my best material ended up there. That’s fair–The Union pays for the column and nobody pays me to write this blog.
Finally, it comes down to time. I’ve taken on some new commitments since I started the blog, and I just don’t have the time required to do the job well. I’ve reached the point in life where I have the freedom to not do things, so I’m not doing the blog anymore.
I may resurrect Nevada County Roadkill in some other form in the future, or I may not. One thing’s for sure: There’s no lack of material to read in the blogosphere.
