It's Not That I'm Back...

I have, for all intents and purposes, clipped the wings that made my site soar. While things were far from booming for me, I was very pleased with the direction of the site and the increased readership. Four months of school-related busy-ness and it feels like the first time all over again.

Over this time, I began to question why I was "blogging" and if there was a point to continue. While I did not come up with an affirmative yes, I furthered my understanding of why I write and to whom I write for.

That is, it is not as if I am writing through the lens of some minority; fact is, like the majority of baseball fans, I fall under the category of WASPy-McWASP—but a Canadian WASP!

While I have a relatively open mind when it comes to writing and researching (read, filled with cynicism) there really isn't a whole lot that I can offer to the baseball world that couldn't be found elsewhere.

Alas, a purpose must be found, a purpose must be committed to, and a purpose must be put into action.

Over the coming weeks, as I prepare for a major change in my life, I intend to develope (/discover) this purpose, stringing it together as a work in progress.
