I have some happy news and some sad news. Let’s start with the happy things; I’ve been a part of the FanSided MLB network since the end of January as a staff writer at Call to the Pen, a general baseball blog. It’s been a wonderful experience writing for CttP and continuing to post for On the Way Home. Over the weekend, I was awarded the job of becoming the editor of Rising Apple, which is the dedicated FanSided site for the New York Mets! I’m very excited for this opportunity and look forward to covering the Mets more in depth now that baseball season has returned.
However, with the responsibilities that come with being editor of Rising Apple and continuing as a staff writer for Call to the Pen, I won’t be able to dedicate enough time to keep On The Way Home as current as I have been able to do since I started it months ago. So, even though On The Way Home will not be at the caliber it once was, the lights are not being cut off entirely, but only dimmed. When there is time, I plan on contributing to the site here and there, in an effort to keep things somewhat current.
I appreciate all the readers that I have gained throughout this time, all of the wonderful comments that you have provided me with, and the extreme joy that it was to write for you all. I hope that even though not everyone is a Mets fan, you will follow me over to Rising Apple and continue to read my general MLB work at Call to the Pen. Without all of you, this move would have never happened for me, so I thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Have a wonderful Easter and enjoy the finish of the first weekend of MLB games!
