The Heirloom's Dead End

"What's happening with The Heirloom?"

It's been a question that has popped up by non-readers of this site for a while. This is probably a chance to explain all of this contextually.

Since the early 2000s, one of my writing topics had been about sports. Baseball has been the primary sport of choice for most of my life, so I felt compelled to put my love for the game into words. Of those who read my work, they hoped it would be available on a larger stage for the world to see.

In 2008, Major League Baseball Advanced Media opened up their MLBlogs sites for no charge, as opposed to a per month rate. Not only did I migrate my earlier work onto the new site, I began writing volumes of new and relative material. The Heirloom was born. It became the bane of my existence while figuring out what to do with the rest of my written work.

This year alone saw a turn towards a different focus. Regular readers of V&R have witnessed this turn as I put more emphasis on the automotive work above my baseball writing. The growing readership along with the inroads made in this industry superseded what I was hoping to do with The Heirloom.
