I would have said all good things come to an end, but I think we can all agree there is very little about this 2009 Chicago Cubs season that could be classified as good. We’ll do all the usually season postmortem type things later, but that’s not the purpose of this particular post.
Warning: Meta Post (i.e., a post about Bleacher Nation) to follow.
Today marks the close of the 2009 season – an uninspiring endeavor to be certain – and with it comes an end to some of your regular programming here at Bleacher Nation. Those witty Enhanced Box Scores and informative Series Previews necessarily must end until next year. But I wanted to reassure you that Bleacher Nation will chug along as always, bringing you all the news you want and the commentary you don’t need. Blogging about the Chicago Cubs is a difficult business, and many excellent Cubs blogs fall by the wayside in the offseason – that won’t be the case here. Because I’m a nerd, and I love this stuff.
I want to thank all of you for reading this year. It’s been an interesting process, and I continue to adjust to suit the readership. When I started this blog in late December of last year, I never dreamed it would become what it has, and develop a relatively large readership so quickly. In case you’re curious about the community to which you now belong, we’ve got anywhere from 200 to 300 regular readers, depending on what metric you go by. And then there are another 500 to 1000 pop-ins in a given day. BleedCubbieBlue it is not, but a success by my standards.
So, in short, thank you again. You keep reading, and I’ll keep writing. And if you stop reading, God will kill kittens.
