I never thought when I sat down to write the very first article that posted on August 9th, 2011, that the response would be so overwhelming! It has been a true labor of love doing what I enjoy so much while being able to draw the attention of so many of you out there.
I have been able to pursue my passion for writing about sports and in particular, fantasy sports and have so many people to thank for their encouragement and support for most of our journey. Our IT guy and co-creator Antonio who made this venture a reality, our editor and biggest supporter Giuliana, Jon over at WordPress, WordAds, fellow bloggers Cayman, decollins, Maurice B., Steven, Sam, Jerry, Justin, CVolk, Gregg, Gary, GB, Josh, Matt, Giant fan Goldie, J double U, Sean, Joe M., Naeem C., Bobby C., Anthony, Drew E., the Polar Bear, Shannon, Wrands, Chris Ross, youjivinmeturkey, jeftaylor, Alicia B., and jamcracker. (Feels like I’m at the Academy Awards and I’m thanking everyone I’ve known who ever had a pulse…)
For those of you who I might have left out inadvertently, I apologize. To those who have been there throughout, thank you for the 25,000 visits and for leaving close to 1,000 comments in the past 12 months. Many, many thanks for letting me do what I love! We will all look forward to hearing from you as we enter year two.
We hope we’ve informed, entertained, and of course, helped all of those with their fantasy leagues through our almost 300 posts, for these were our goals from the very beginning.
And lastly, a special thanks to the Most Interesting Man In The World for his very kind words and support. “Stay informed with the Furnace my friends…”
