Effective today, I’ll no longer be posting updates to this blog and its corresponding Twitter feed. Operating this site for just shy of four years now has made the decision a tough one.
It’s become increasingly difficult to keep up with all that is going on in the Senate since this has remained a hobby of mine and has not materialized into paid work. I’ve done everything by myself from day one which has also made it more of a challenge to step away from things on a consistent basis when needed without falling behind.
For some, my coverage of the Senate has become something they relied on to keep up with various issues. For that I am humbled and grateful. My goal has always been to keep people informed in an up-to-date fashion. I don’t feel I can maintain that level of commitment any longer while juggling the various other aspects of daily life.
It’s been fun getting to interact online with some great reporters who work at the Capitol and around D.C. I would especially like to thank those writing for POLITICO, The Hill, Talking Points Memo, The Washington Post, Roll Call/CQ, The Huffington Post, National Journal/Hotline On Call and, of course, the wire services for their excellent reporting. They are all tremendously hard-working and talented individuals who made what I did possible.
I’d also like to thank those Senate press offices who were kind enough to be responsive to an unknown blogger such as myself. And of course, C-SPAN, without which floor coverage would not have been possible.
On a final personal note for those interested, I live and work in Oklahoma in the legal profession. That explains my at times incessant Twitter updates about OU football. I’m 27 years old and happily married.
Thanks again to all for your support and God bless.
