Today marks the third anniversary for this blog. It was back on January 31st, 2007 that I started this blog as a Mets fan in Baltimore looking to reach out and interact with the Mets community. Since then I have written nearly 1100 articles (a total that should be surpassed this week), contributed to two more Mets blogs and have changed my personal location to outside of DC.
I know this past year has been a rough year for the Mets, but we have gone through rough seasons before and made it back on top. Its easy to say that now as well since Spring is right around the corner, where optimisim is rising to its peak.
Personally, if you have been reading this site, you probably realize there has been a drop off in my writing over the last 6 months or so. I am hoping with this upcoming season to return to my familiar high volume of quality writing for the following season. I normally don't talk on this site too much about what I do outside of the Mets writing world, but I would like to digress for a little bit. I am an undergraduate Astronomy and Physics double major at the University of Maryland College Park. The last several months has been an extremely busy time as I had two labs (including an observation lab at night) which cut a lot into the time I usually try to get some writing done. Hopefully my next semester isn't as busy, which is why I see my writing returning to normal.
This is an exciting time to be a Mets fan, believe it or not. We are either desitined for big things right now, or we are on the cusp or a new generation of players and talent of for the amazin's and possibly (or more hopefully) a more competent front office if needed. Lets Go Mets! Lets get ready for the optimism of Spring and the most optmistic day of the year, Openning Day.
Thank you all for reading, and I am always open for comments and advice,
