Read this and this.
So, two of the best and most prolific theater bloggers decide to join forces and also write about...other stuff. Very cool. Have fun with that, and I hope you keep giving theater some love.
Blogging is odd. There's no one to say "Hey, you're done with that part of the job." People quit or change or just get quiet. That's how it goes.
As for me, this blog has retained it totally inaccurate name and will retain its tone and content. I've never viewed this blog as a product in and of itself...I view it as a place where I can speak, be heard, and hear other people too. Sometimes I get my gander up and write at length on a subject, sometimes I make jokes, and sometimes I link to YouTube. It is sufficient, I hope.
Occasionally I get busy. Right now is one of those times. I hope those of you in New York who follow this blog will allow their interest in my daily thoughts or whatever to migrate into the real world and check out what my actual work looks like. Those of you who live farther away, I've got publications I invite and encourage you to read and send me thoughts about. I'd love to be in a conversation about my actual work, not just about what I think about Treme (which I like, for the record) or the new Dr. Who (who I also like) or Collateralized Debt Obligations (which I listen to too many podcasts about).
I've never really believed that my voice should become a cultural authority on any given subject. I'm just a guy. Thanks for reading. Keep reading. And much luck to Isaac and 99seats, as their readership and subjects expand.
