When Big Blue View began in February of 2007 I had no idea if it would succeed or fail, or how long I could sustain the pace of writing about the Giants every day.
The site has been, from my perspective, an unmitigated success. We have a solid, likeable, growing community. I want this site to one day be the best New York Giants fan site on the Internet. BBV isn't there yet, but I think its is on its way to eventually challenging Big Blue Interactive for that crown.
I have come to the realization, though, that to get there I am going to need some help. Some of you know that I also cover the New York Yankees for 'Bugs & Cranks .' Between the writing I do there, what I do here, working at a new and demanding full-time job, and having a family I can't keep up this pace.
So, on to my point. I have decided to take on a regular contributor, or co-writer, I'm not quite sure what to call him. Anyway, our very own 'jrs1940' has agreed to join the site and will be writing at least a couple of times per week.
I'm thrilled to have the help. I think it will go a long way toward helping BBV become an even more valuable Giants site for you. I'm sure 'jrs' will bring a perspective you will appreciate.
Since he began commenting here, 'jrs' has shown great passion and insight in regards to the Giants. He's been willing to do this for a while, and I just haven't been ready to ask for help.
Now I am, and I think that -- ultimately -- the site will be better for it.
Now that I have dumped all shorts of pressure on him, please give a shout and welcome 'jrs' aboard -- though I know I don't have to ask you to do that.
