Going on Hiatus

by: Isaac Smith

Wed Dec 10, 2008 at 03:16 PM EST

I've been doing this unofficially for a while now, so I might as well make it official: I'm putting this blog on hiatus for the foreseeable future. Free State Politics has been a labor of love for me for the last year and a half or so, but it's not something I can attend to with anything near the level of commitment it deserves. It was easier when it was a side project I was doing during grad school, but trying to fit in blog posts (and good ones, at that) with my current work situation -- i.e., underemployed and trying to find a better job in the midst of a world-historical recession -- just isn't feasible anymore. I want to thank my other co-bloggers, in particular Eric, Andy, OnBackground, and Bruce, for all their contributions, which usually were better than my own. Hopefully soon I (or someone else) can give this site a reboot; until then, enjoy Maryland Politics Watch, Lost on the Shore, and other Maryland political blogs out there.

No Don't Go.... (0.00 / 0)
To Isaac and all who have made FSP a popular and important news vehicle, I say thanks and best wishes. Many bloggers are in the same position,myself included, and with newspapers dying all around, maybe we actually have a good opportunity to expand at this time--but then again....maybe not. I've been privileged to post here from Annapolis Capital Punishment.


Sorry to see... (0.00 / 0)
I'm sorry to see you, and the blog, go.  But I understand that there are other demands for your time.  I've enjoyed all the posts here by you and by others.  It's been a very professional job and worth reading.

I also want to thank you for your support of my little 'Lost on the Shore' blog.  I've appreciated your words of encouragement.  

Best wishes and thank you for all your massive work, Isaac (0.00 / 0)
Am totally sympathetic with the time and priorities challenges.
