Where I am, 2015 edition

It's been a couple of years since I did this, but it seemed like a good time for a refresher. (For me, if not you.)

"Who I am and where you can find me" is all over this website, so this post might seem redundant. (An old friend and co-worker actually did find me over the weekend through this website, not social media, so apparently I'm doing this correctly.) 

In 2013, I noticed writer Warren Ellis (not the musician) post what was essentially an online business card on his website. I'm not anywhere near as accomplished nor my resume as diverse, but I wanted to do something like that too.

And with that, this is the first "I'm really going to try and keep this blog updated" resolution of 2015. There will probably be at least three more of those to come. But I'm aiming for a mix of original writing, links to what I'm doing elsewhere and links to stuff I've enjoyed reading in a particular week. Hopefully, that keeps the lights on and the dust off around here. 

Besides the addresses listed above, I am currently writing for the Bloguin network. Thanks to Ben Koo, Matt Yoder and Joe Lucia for making a very welcome home for me. 

The Outside Corner is where you can find my baseball writing (both columns and news). I'm the editor for the network's pop culture site, The AP Party. And I've been contributing more recently to Bloguin's flagship site, Awful Announcing, writing mostly about the intersection of sports and pop culture, but also a bit of media analysis and commentary, for which the site is best known. 

Unfortunately, I will not be writing about the Asheville Tourists this year for Ashvegas. I very much enjoyed writing about minor league baseball and doing some work (including movie reviews) locally, but with my other commitments, I just don't see being able to commit the time necessary to do a good job. I'm grateful to Jason Sandford and the Tourists' Doug Maurer for providing the opportunity. It wasn't an easy decision, but was completely amicable. Jason is my homey, man. 

I'm not sure if I'll be blogging about the Tourists on this site. I've shuttered AVL Tourists Trap for now, but would like to revive it and keep writing about the team. But I feel like it will be located elsewhere. 

So I think that about covers where I am these days. Thank you for checking in, and I will try harder to keep it current around here!
