As the summer rolls on and we enter the midway point in Amazin' Avenue: Season 2, I wanted to give everyone a bit of the "State of AA", as well as an opportunity to voice your likes and dislikes, as well as suggestions on ways to improve the AA experience.
First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who has stopped by here over the past sixteen months for their patronage and their contributions to the cause. I consider myself the host of this site, but what goes on here extends far beyond me and my numbers and my ramblings. This site is as much about you guys as anything else, and hopefully what separates AA from the countless other similar websites is the sense of community we have here. Whether it's via a diary entry, a poll or your comments, this site is home to many unique voices, most of which are actually worth listening to!
Secondly, as many of you know I am getting married in August, and will be off in Hawaii for destination wedding plus honeymoon. I'll be away from the 6th thru the 19th, though I have no intention of letting this place collect dust while I'm gone. I'm looking for one or two people to keep this site loaded with content, including posting open threads, polls, news, opinion, etc. I still have to work out all of the details, but I figured I should get this ball rolling before sooner becomes later. So, if you have been a regular contributor to the diaries and comments for some time and would like to help out, send me an e-mail or catch me on IM so I can gauge interest. Thanks!
Finally, the scope of this website has varied over its short lifetime, but I think we've settled upon a nice mix of stats, charts, opinion, news, etc. Still, I'm always curious to know what you guys think, since I consider this to be your playground, too. What, if anything, would you like to see more of (or any of), such as:
- Mets news
- Other baseball news
- Collaborations with other websites/blogs
- Book/DVD reviews
- Contests/giveaways (the DVD set giveaway is coming!)
