The Time Has Come

Hello to everyone! As some of you may have noticed, I have been absent from the blog for a bit now and the time has come for me to tell you why. This is my official blogging retirement post.

First off, I wanted to thank everyone for your participation in making this community grow as quickly as it has. I couldn't be happier about that and couldn't have asked for more regarding the immense interest in the Kings.

Second, perhaps you're curious as to why I'm doing this. Well, I've been blogging since 2007 and it feels like it's my time to step down. When I first started this venture, there were hardly any Kings bloggers out there and I had a lot to say about this team that I loved. I had an intense passion to drive a blog virtually everyday trying to find anyone who was willing to talk Kings hockey with me. Since then I've met some incredible people who amazingly loved the team as much as I did and who could speak intelligently about them at the same time. But, after three full seasons of dissecting, pondering, and obsessing about this team, I find the drive to write daily is hard to come by. Also, my personal life has definitely changed over the past three years so even to find the free time is proving difficult.

As we all know, no one (except the top dogs at SBN) does this for their full-time job and the time commitment was just too much for me. This community at JFTC has been amazing but I feel there are others out there who can drive this train more efficiently than I can as this point. As such, Quisp will be taking over the blog "full time" and I hope everyone continues to help build this community everyday.

Will I pull a Scott Niedermayer of a few years ago? You never know, but don't count on that anytime soon. Perhaps a guest post here or there if Quisp will have me back, but I won't disappear completely. For now, you can follow me at @Connie_Kim if you'd like. Otherwise, it's been wonderful to be here and talk to everyone soon!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
