It's been awhile...

Hellllllooooo! It has been nearly 6 months since I last posted. Let's get that out of the way since I know that is a new record. I hope this finds you all well and relishing the approaching football season. All is just fine in my world with a 5.5 year old that is obsessed with playing and watching any and every sport (currently completely into baseball), and a 2.5 year old that is tyrannical and also somehow completely adorable, as most are.

Okay, cold hard truth time, my friends: my heart hasn't been in this blog for awhile now. Surprised? Didn't think so. But the thing is, I can't quite seem to completely walk away and call it done. I have loved this blog, it has brought me so much enjoyment, made enough money to cover an extensive coffee habit, and I've met some incredible people. And learned a hell of a lot about fantasy football along the way.

So here we are at the precipice of another fantasy football season and I feel the itch to blog again - but as you have probably figured out, my energy and enthusiasm for it seems to wane as the season continues. I don't want to let you all down mid-season so here's what I need to know from you - even if I just post once a week, is that still valuable for you all? Should I keep this train going? Or call it quits?

Mull that over while you read some post-NFL draft links and previews of the season:

I'm happy to read you whenever. Once a week is great if you can manage it but I'd still read whenever you felt like posting.

Once a week versus nada would be super. I love your blog for both the fantasy football and the family insights! Please keep your family updates going!

I sent you an email already but once a week is perfect, I will even take once every two weeks. But I love the recommended defenses for the week. Streaming defenses is fun. Glad to hear that everything is OK and to read this blog again.

Whatever you can do is greatly appreciated! I remember when my kids were young, they take all your time. At some point down the road they will be think it is cool for Mom to know so much about fantasy football and they will encourage you. Your Blog has helped me win championships and my son to think I am a great Fantasy Coach.

keep it up! need my competitive advantage during FF season. Still doing monster league this year? Love the updates and the gathering of info. Ala "Steve" anything you do will be appreciated and useful!

Yes, once a week is fine. However, if you drop-out in week 11 like last season, just add a quick note that you didn't fall off the face of the earth or something. I was actually concerned that something might have happened to you.

I love the Team Defense post that I think you put up there from a contributing source? Regardless - keep up the good work and if you need help just reach out to your community.

Keep it coming! I once had a blog and life got in the way. I regret letting it go all the time. Once a week is plenty of material to make a visit worthwhile. Thanks for all your hard work. Much appreciated!

I have really enjoyed your blog over the years and was kind of disappointed that you were unable to finish last year's fantasy season. Please keep blogging even if it's once a week as you have a lot of fans and I'm quite sure that they truly enjoy your blog like I do.

I love your site. I find your streaming defenses articles to be invaluable. Please keep it going to whatever degree you can.
