It’s funny, but I met Kyle King in a professional context within a day or two of reading his blog for the first time. At some point while we were working on a transaction, the subject of Georgia football came up (that’s not nearly as unusual as you might think in my work) and Kyle let on that he was a blogger. I told him that I’d read his work and enjoyed it; he seemed pleased by that and in fact mentioned it on his blog a couple of days later.
It turned out that he was one of the inspirations I had in starting a blog of my own. I figured that if one married, practicing lawyer could start a fan blog centered on Georgia athletics, so could I. I was right, luckily.
It’s a lot of fun getting a blog like this, or one that’s turned into Dawg Sports, going. It’s also a lot of hard work. That’s not what makes fan blogging tough, though. It’s when what you’re doing feels like hard work that you’ve got a problem. So even though I’m not there, I certainly understand where Kyle is coming from with his announcement that he intends to withdraw from blogging in the next few weeks.
I just want to take a moment to thank him for what he’s done and wish him the best on where he’s going.
