A Fond Farewell

As we prepare for the 2016 baseball season, I have some good and bad news to share with loyal readers of this humble little blog.

The good news? Well, I'm moving to a brand new site that will showcase all of my very best baseball writing in a far more professional manner. It's called The Pastime, and it already features most of my work from down the years on this blog. There, I'll be able to format and promote my work in a far more satisfying fashion, while reaching a larger audience. So, exciting times lie ahead.

The bad news? Suicide Squeezin' will no longer be an active blog. At least not at this address. The essence of this blog will thrive as I'll still be covering baseball in the same fashion, and with even greater regularity, but the name isn't making the move, and we'll no longer be updating this page. 

I started this blog as a simple hobby in the summer of 2013, when I had some spare time and plenty to say about baseball. Since then, it has attracted a dedicated following, and has been the platform for my opinions and memories. However, as I've started to pursue a professional career writing about baseball, the limitations of this platform have become apparent. At this point, I need a stronger provider with better options for maintaining a large readership and creating a better appearance. I managed to achieve that with the new site. Please take a look

So fear not, dear readers. All of your favourite articles from this blog have been transported across and enriched with fancy formatting and a more amenable reader experience. I'll also keep Suicide Squeezin' alive as a stand alone web page, as a tribute to what it once meant to us all.

Now, though, I would be honoured if you would make the journey across to the new site with me. I really value your continued interest and support, and The Pastime is built to reward you, too. I believe my writing is of a tremendous quality, but formatting here at Suicide Squeezin' has often been poor. Moving forward, I hope to rectify that, while rewarding your faith with easier ways to follow, interact with and share my content.

So, in closing, I would like to thank you for all the memories we made here, and welcome you to the new site.

Please subscribe to The Pastime for free so you never miss an article, and let's build something even greater. Something fit for the future.

Farewell to the past, and hello to the future.
Kind regards,
Ryan
