I’m going to cut to the chase on this one, no beating around the bush. After 4-1/2 years of being “the blog lady,” I’ve come to the difficult decision that it’s time to retire my post here at the blog. I have truly loved being the voice behind My Southborough, but the time has come for me to pursue other interests.
Now don’t panic, the blog is not going away anytime soon. In fact, it’s my hope My Southborough will continue for many years to come.
For the next couple of months, I will continue to post daily updates on the blog just as I have been doing all along. I’m going to keep up my blogging duties through the town elections in May – there are too many important decisions the town needs to make between now and then to leave you in a lurch.
During that time I’ll also be on the search for someone (or someones) to take over the helm at My Southborough.
If you have even the slightest inkling that being a community blogger might be just the thing for you, I urge you to get in touch. We can meet for coffee and chat and I’ll tell you all about how covering the great town of Southborough has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. I’ll tell you it’s challenging, and demanding, but I’ll also tell you that contributing something of value to the community you love is worth every late-night meeting…well, almost every late-night meeting.
I’ll save the big sappy goodbye for when that time comes. For now, let me just take a moment to say thank you. Thank you for making this site what it has become, for being involved, for caring. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement. Thank you.
(I’m going to leave this post pinned to the top of the blog for the remainder of the day to give people a chance to see it, but I’ll still be posting other stories today. Scroll down to see them.)
