I've written 248 posts celebrating the ska.
The blog was going strong through August 2011 before some personal issues started popping up. Before the end of 2011, I ended up losing 2 kindred spirits that were very close to me. During that period it took me out of the mood to listen to ska, much less write about it.
I've recovered from those events, but the passion to write hasn't returned and that's why I haven't posted in over 6 months.
I found other things to do. I've gotten very into digital photography over the past year and have found it greatly rewarding to "create" the photographs.
I still listen to ska reasonably often, but I haven't really been seeking out what's new.
The original reason I created the blog is that I found it somewhat difficult to get information on some of the bands I was interested in. So, I decided to post thoughts on them myself.
I am not "ending" the blog. I'm just writing to say I haven't posted in a long time and don't see myself posting in the near future. I'm happy to leave the blog intact as a resource. I'm proud of what this blog has been able to accomplish and think it is an outstanding resource.
