Putting the Baby To Bed

We started this blog over a year ago because there wasn't anyone paying attention to all the random happenings around town, or rather they weren't being collected in any organized fashion. There was definite purpose. Over the course of the last year though, other blogs have picked up the slack and are doing a damn fine job of keeping track of the things that we considered our domain. Sure, we could keep this going, but it doesn't make sense to be a vestigial tail to the Seattle blogosphere. So we're done. Turn your attentions to Seattlest, Metblogs, and SLOG for your various WTF event listings (they're each doing their part - and we'll turn our attentions to Seattlest in that regard). We're going to keep the calendar going, but for the most part, spanning_time as blog is done.

Now don't fret. Those of you that know us in real life know that we're all over the Seattle blogosphere, so there's no shortage of opportunities to read our stilted prose. We've also made the leap to print with a column in The Stranger, which is still incredibly exciting and scary as hell. There are also some ideas percolating around about new projects that get us excited, the main one being another blog more in the "A Revolution Stunted" vein, the other centered around brunch. We'll see how those work out, and we'll likely make a post here just to let you know about them once they're more solid.

Thanks to all of you for reading, for your comments, and for your suggestions. It truly meant a lot to us. The spanning_time blog might be gone, but the spirit certainly lives on, and every one of you helped to make it what it is. Now get off the Internet and go do something!

  • boo! you suck. no, really, the new column rules and i always wondered how you were able to spill so much virtual ink. i was beginning to think the editorial 'we' might actually be referring to the clones you created to write blogs.
    i'll be readin' ya. and seeing you. (and thanks for the music 2 weeks ago, can't stop listening!)
