It's time to call it quits

I've been blogging for over 2.5 years and as you probably have noticed, I really haven't done much in the last 2-3 months. It's about time that I give this up as the drive just isn't there anymore. I covered the last 2 Packer seasons, drafts, etc and I watched all the games thinking in my head "How can I best blog this?". It has become tiring. Now I am simply going to enjoy the games and still critique them, but I think I would be better served for a while just commenting on other Packer sites and blogs, as that is what we all crave, someone to comment on what we do.

This blog was originally started as a writing experiment and turned into a primarily WI sports (mostly Packer) site with some snippets of my life thrown in. I've met a lot of great people while doing this and found sites I never would have.

So, where should you go for great Packer info?

Brats and Beer has always been a favorite, he's a good writer and not afraid to call BS when he sees it.

Mr. Carriveau does a fantastic job over at the
Railbird Central. He's made leaps and bounds in his blog over the last 1.5 years. Proud to say I was there in the beginning for him.

The gang over at
The Frozen Tundra has carried the torch very well that I started 2 yrs ago there (where I had some of my best writings).

Check out SBNations
Acme Packing Company. It's a new guy who's just started about 2-3 months ago but he's doing a nice job.

Someday, I hope to write again when the muse strikes and hopefully one of these fine sites would allow me to join their team as my days of flying solo are at an end.

It's been a great run of over 450 posts and 75,000 visitors. I thank all of you for making this site so much fun for so long. Take care and God bless.

Can't blame you one bit for wanting to give it up CC. In fact, I'm jealous. You've had a good run so enjoy your well deserved retirement!

Your crowning achievement? Larry Bird rescuing Polly Pockets. No question about it.

No!!!

I would sometimes come to this site to taunt and most of the times I didn't have the heart.

I doubt I'll be checking out other Packer sites but don't neglect to check out the Brett Favre interception watch on Lost Forest After Dark. I'm convinced Brett will have to record after the 3rd game

Sorry to see you go, as you may have seen my blog is gon, too...someone else stole the site address.

Blogging just got too consuming to me as far as time went.

'Tis a sad day for us fans, but I hope you enjoy your time off. The Oracle will be missed.

Sara said...

Geez. We are all going to miss you. I hear Brett is considering the same move next season...

Can't you see it now?

Brett: After the Oracle stopped posting, well, the game really lost its allure. I didn't have anything more to play for. So, I guess it's time to move to Mississippi, ride around on the old lawn tractor full time and wait for the induction ceremony. Thanks for the memories guys.

Sorry to see you go, CC. Hopefully you'll keep commenting over at the Greet Machine. Have a good one!

This comment is actually way late, but I'm a Wisconsin sports blogger and I had heard an awful lot about this blog and never had a chance to visit it. From the looks of it you did very good work. Good luck with the rest of life.
