The heavy-weight News Blog is morphing back into the old light-weight SLI blogspot. You will continue to receive news over the "off season" (fall, winter, spring months) but not necessarily on an hourly basis. Thanks to those who have helped me to make the decision that I have been contemplating for the last two months. I think most will be happy about it.
Last December, I initiated an experiment which was combining the light-weight promotional SLI blog with a new, more heavy-weight news blog. Perhaps it was the newness of it all that gave me the impression that people liked the new direction (or at least most of the ones who were in regular dialogue with me).
After seven (7) and one-half months, I have concluded that the news blog format is not appropriate for our small community. It is also far more time consuming than a simple, promotional blog like we had before last December, and basically, I need more time for other projects both personal and professional.
I am taking immediate action to discontinue the news blog format (silverlakenynew.blog) and will allow that domain to expire this December and not renew. I will run only the promotional blog (silverlakeinstitute.org). It is my strong desire that you will continue to enjoy the blog even without as many entries.
I am very much open to hearing your comments, suggestions, and definitely receiving your contributions to the Blog about family and friends in which others would be equally interested. Without comments, I don't know what you're thinking--what you like and what you don't like. Thanks to those who have let me know.
