Today is Baseball By The Yard's first birthday! On December 12, 2010, I launched the site with two posts: First Impressions and By The Yard.
Everyday since then (with the exception of a family vacation during the summer) I have tried to post something valuable for players, coaches, parents, and/or fans. I hope you found them useful!
My goal from the start was to pass on some of the finer points of the game that I have picked up over the years. I added interviews, a guest post from a good friend of mine, started to add video posts towards the end of the year, and even created a new logo. Your comments and emails along the way were very encouraging and challenged me to give you more. Hopefully, I have provided content that is easily understood and relevant to all of you in some way.
I have a lot of plans for the future of Baseball By The Yard. In order to produce the content I want to share, I will need to revamp the site since the current host (Blogger) does not support some of the things I want to do. Changing things up will require some work and certainly time on my part. I am hoping it will be finished by the start of the new year.
I will need to take a break from posting until the new site is finished so I can apply the necessary time to get that up and running. I am hoping the readers will use the remainder of December as a "catch-up" period to go back and read through some of the 340+ posts on the site.
Along with catching up, could you also do me a favor?
Below is a link that will take you to a survey designed to help me plan out some of the content in the future. Ultimately, I want to produce information that you need and want. I don't want to assume I know what that is. I would greatly appreciate if you could give a minute or two of your time to complete the survey. Your feedback would be very helpful.
I hope all of you have a happy and relaxing holiday season. As always, thank you for being a reader and shoot me an email if you need anything!
