OK, I know that "moving day" is Saturday at the Master's, but for me, it's today. David Wilson, aka Dwil, of Sports on My Mind, has asked me to join him and three other writers in a new sports blogging venture, The Starting Five (TSF). I'll paste in what Dwil wrote on his site in a moment about what TSF is all about, but I wanted to let you all know that I still plan to post every day (roughly), it's just that my writing will, hence forth, be accessible at the new site. One advantage of the move will be (hopefully) that all of us will augment our readerships by joining forces. But, I really want feedback from those of you who have been regulars here as to what you think of the new site, whether you think something is being lost in the move and any other comments you might have.
I will leave this site up in order for people to maintain access to my archives, but I will post over at TSF for the first time tonight or tomorrowdwi. The four guys I will be blogging with are all, in my opinion, really talented guys who bring a valuable perspective to sports discourse. I am sure we will not always agree with one another on every issue, but I do hope we'll complement each other well (as opposed to complimenting one another, which is less important).
Anyway, here's more information, from Dwil:
"To all visitors, check this out. My writing is moving to a new spot. I’ll be writing with four other heads. Our site is called The Starting Five (TSF). We consist of the writers of: Michael Tillery; Sports Media Review; The HNIV Report; Not That It Matters, and; me. We are all keeping our present blogs and websites up so that peeps can access our archives at our original spots. But all our new work will be posted on TSF.
So, what is TSF about? This:
The Starting Five (TSF) intends to cause a ruckus in the most honorable way. Our collective goal is to provide sports fans with an alternative to the popular Internet sports readings of the day.
We are scrupulous in our reporting of sports-related topics and subject matter; we source actual people; we reference actual publications. We relate the truth as it finds us, not as we want it to be.
Some days TSF will raise eyebrows. Some days TSF will anger many people, but inform more. But most importantly, we of TSF will be relentless in our pursuit of knowledge about the games about which we write and equally relentless in our pursuit of the truth about the people in and around the games, sports, and leagues we love.
Welcome to The Starting Five.
That’s us. Please everyone come over and check us out. Instead of five places to find info, you’ll have it in one spot. I hope everyone enjoys TSF."
I hope you like the new site. By the way, my posts will be appearing under "jweiler."
