I want to announce that Andrew Hofheimer will be taking over as the guiding force for Black and Teal. I will move to a contributing writer role.
I am very happy about this, not that I am moving over, but that Andrew is taking charge. One of the greatest things about the Internet and blogging is to “meet” and interact with people you would never have the chance to meet in a physical world. Zoltan has been a very good friend of mine and I would love to meet him. Luke joined from somewhere in the upper peninsula where snow is beginning to fall. Andrew joined after reading what Black and Teal is all about. It has been my pleasure to read their stuff and help them find a voice.
The other thing I am pleased about is the future of Black and Teal. I was and remain a big fan of Jeanne and this site is her creation. When she couldn’t give it the attention it needed, she allowed me to assume responsibility. About 10,000 different people read the site monthly. Sounds like a lot, but there is room to grow. Andrew is very clever and will give the site its coolness and intelligence we tried to maintain. All of the writers will remain with him. Black and Teal has an identity that Andrew and the others understand and they will grow it wonderfully.
I will continue to contribute. There is a new era dawning for the Jaguars and I will be in my seats at the stadium enjoying it all.
Give Andrew a warm welcome. The owners of FanSided have already done this and he is busy getting settled in his new role. This is a good day for Black and Teal.
