Goodbye For Now Friends – We Will Meet Again

When I signed on as City Captain of Metblogs back in September, it had been very recently decimated by the exodus of the previous Metblogs team. Readership had plummeted to almost nothing and less than two articles were being published each week. It has been a pleasure since then getting to know the current team of authors who have created something of a Renaissance here at DC Metblogs. They are a talented group of individuals with fascinating lives away from the blogosphere. We are lucky that they take the time to blog DC so passionately.

Recently I accepted a position conducting media consultation and business development. It has taken up nearly all of my “free” time. It is for that reason that I will be leaving Metblogs, at least for a while. It is so very difficult to leave this great readership in the Nation’s Capitol, and such a great group of friends in the bloggers who run the site day to day. But I leave enthusiastically, nonetheless.

The job of City Captain is a time consuming job that requires style and a flair for staying well ahead of the e-curve. I am pleased that I will be passing the Captaincy off to my friend Patrick Pho, who you have enjoyed as a blogger over the past several months. Patrick is a talented and creative individual who will bring an exciting element to the DC Metblogs for which I have great anticipation. He will bring the site back to its glory days, and then some.

As I drop from the Metblogs team, and become a reader and fan once again, I hope that more of the readers will get involved in blogging for DC Metblogs. The real news in this town comes from locals, giving truth to the Metroblogging concept that the people will always command their hometown media. So go wild, blog local, and save me a seat. I’m sure I’ll be back, someday.
